This is an excellent opportunity for an avid fisherman to be on the water every day through the spring and summer months while earning good pay.
Based out of Neah Bay, we run a top of the line 37X13 twin diesel vessel and stay very busy throughout our season. We target primarily Halibut and Salmon, but also do near-shore and offshore Bottomfish trips. We take no more than 6 passengers per day. Season lasts from May 1st
through Labor Day Weekend in September. Weekly schedule varies but we may fish up to 20 straight days, and days onboard for the deckhand are commonly 10-12 hours.
Compensation varies but is based off of a flat fee paid by the business per departure plus 100% of all gratuities. Deckhand reports to vessel 30 minutes to vessel prior to departure to prep the boat and gear. Boat departs for 7-12 hours. Vessel returns, and deckhand performs vessel and related gear maintenance too prepare for the following trip.
Requirements as a crewman for the boat are to commit to “be onboard every day the boat departs from port” in Neah Bay regardless of any circumstance. Cleaning and/or filleting the boats’ entire catch is expected. Beyond assisting paying clients with recreational angling and landing/releasing fish, another primary responsibility includes the general upkeep of the vessel as well as assisting in some of the maintenance. Deckhand must cater to the needs of both the passengers and the captain.
Candidate needs to be hardworking, friendly, and good with people. Drug screening does apply. We cannot stress enough that they are to be available every day May-Labor Day in 2012 that the boat is booked for a charter. Avid recreational fisherman, especially those with commercial fishing experience, have in the past done very well at this job in the past.
