BHCFA Provides Economic Stimulus
Winter may still have its icy grip on the New Jersey seashore, but the captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are already planning and working to get ready for the 2009 fishing season.
As they prepare their schedules for the year, these captains are well aware of the financial difficulties facing most Americans.
In an attempt to provide their own "stimulus" package to anglers, some have established price breaks and discounts for customers who make their reservations early in the year. By using some of these discounts for early bookings, there can be considerable savings for anglers.
Captain Adam Nowalsky of the "Karen Ann II" is offering a $50 discount for trips booked now for the 2009 seasons. If three or more trips are booked, the discount increases to $75 per trip.
Captain Carl Sheppard of the "Star Fish" is offering a 10% for groups of over 10 who book before April 1. Captain Bob Gerkens of the "Hot Tuna" is promising a discount on summer charters booked prior to May 30. The discount is 5% of the trip's cost. The "Miss Beach Haven" with Captains Frank Camarda and Brant Whittaker is offering a 10% discount off any private charters booked this spring for the 2009 season.
Captain Fran Verdi of the boats "The Drop Off" and "Cousins" will be offering a discount of $45 per trip if booked by April 30. In addition, the price of gift certificates for "open boat" trips will decrease when you purchase more than one.
All of the discounts above must be booked with a deposit fee by the dates stated above. The actual date of the fishing trip can be at any time during the year.
Besides the captains listed above, other members of the association may also be amenable to discounts for early bookings. For detailed information on all of the boats and captains of the BHCFA and the means to contact them, go to the Association's website at www.fishbeachhaven.com
