Abstract
    In 1984 and 1985, surveys of southeastern U.S. waters, including the Gulf of Mexico and the U.S. Caribbean Sea, were conducted to gather catch and effort records from charterboat captains located along coastal areas. Captains were contracted to supply daily records of fishing activity. During the 2-year period, 10,380 fishing trips, 48,231 hours of fishing effort were expended and 342,258 fishes were caught. Species, catches, and catch-per-boat-fishing-hour (CPH) are presented by year, month, and area. Major species groups, caught by trolling included mackerels and tunas (Scombridae), while other-than-trolling methods caught mostly snappers (Lutjanidae), groupers (Serranidae), and croakers (Sciaenidae). Annual response rates for returning log forms for the 1984 and 1985 surveys were 98.8 and 95.7 percent, respectively.
