I hope your just doing it for fun cause your not going to make shit for money with it. Commercial scup limit at that time is about 1,500 lb trip limit per day, you will be lucky to get 40 cents a lb.
Ill pretty much be doing it for fun ill be making my money Giant fishing. Iv been watching alot of wicked tuna to learn the tricks. ill only be scupping when i cant get to the tuna grounds. 300lb fish X$20 =$6,000
$6,000X 3 fish=18,000 a trip.....Easy money. dot com look out off you stern, ill be there.
