I'm guessing on the date but approximately 92-94 went to hatteras to fish for giants & got blown out & all boats were booked the next day so we ended up chartering a boat out of OI for yft I can't remember the boat name but the captain was Ommie Tillet & we had a good trip got 8-9 yft the biggest around 80# but the mate was the biggest jerk. we could not touch a bait or rod or anything execep to sit in the chair & reel . he didn't even want you out the cabin unless it was your time to reel... at the end of the trip I gave him a dollar & informed him that I could sit in my living room & turn a reel handle figured 1$ was worse than 0. so yes I agree tips should be earned & not expected
