Last time I went out on a charter boat I was invited by some friends. The mate sucked. After fishing for real fish for a few hours we went in on a wreck and caught a half dozen amberjacks. The mate was mostly hand lining them and yelling at the poor fisherman "cranker", reel, reel! I was disgusted. Never offered any fish to the customers and seemed offended that I asked for a couple of shoulders. You'd have thought we were on a commercial fishing boat.

Well, since I was a guest I volunteered to pay the tip and gave the captain 15% which I personally thought was more than enough. He immediately went to the guy that chartered and beat him down for another 5%. Wasn't going to accept less. Last time ever on a charter boat.

The boat is a regular out of Sailfish Marina. Not to mention which boat but the captains name is John ______________. Just to narrow it down for you.
