Book a place over near Appalachicola in Florida for a few days during the tarpon migration (June or July for that area). That way we can split lodging and guide costs.

It's probably a 10-hour drive from Houston (Destin is about 8-hours). Drive over, fish 2 days, drive back. It might be lightly attended but we could probably get 6-10 guys and do it for less than $1000 per man, all-in.

Definitely agree with Louisiana. Especially down in the Grand Isle/Port Fourchon area in winter. Joe French and I posted pics of our respective trips over there with Scott Null. Between my buddy and I, I believe we spent about $800 each but that included lodging, food, gas, licenses, and guide fee/tips for 2 days.

Sure these trips can get pricey for some folks but I think if we can get group rates & splitting costs people would be more willing to commit to trips to places we don't normally get to fish and target fish we don't normally get to target.

If you're gonna get a kitchen pass, go big.

I think that is my  reel bag.  I am prone to not get it all together unless I make a list - and I never make a list.  Oh well, I did pick up all my rods.

We used to do pt Mansfield around easter(not on Easter).  Water clear in most wind & it will be windy in mar or April.  Rent a house for a reasonable rate with or without a night fishing dock.
Cookiouts mandatory cause restraints suck.
I ran it 2 or 3 times & all times had to tell people to leave boats at home.  We had too many boats! And didn't want boater owners fishing alone.
Easy to find productive spots for 1st timers.

Baron was at IFly for awhile. Always seemed like a really good guy. I hope he's successful in his guiding business.

Baron Boyette has started guiding in Galveston and LA.  I haven't fished with him yet, but I've known him for years (he's currently at FTU on I45) and he is very knowledgeable and a great guy.

His website is:
