    So i heard that in the summer Newport Landing lets you fish for free in exchange for cleaning up the boat back at the docks. Can anyone confirm or deny?

    I did it for a trip or two, best thing to do is pay for a few trips get to know the deckhands, maybe bring a jigstick for them, then ask... or give me a jigstick and ill get you on a trip

    Mainly they will let you fish for free if you give them a jackpot or two.

    Maybe I am reading this wrong but are you suggesting giving a jigstick to a deckhand in exchange for free trips?
    Not sure I follow your business model here, considering the last jig stick I wrapped for a customer was over $300 and a half day boat costs around 50 bucks after galley, jackpot etc. Might as well just pay your way at that rate.

    Try finding a boat that allows crew fishing (not just hook & hand) and work for them. Best of both worlds, free fishing and some $ at the end of each trip.

    didnt mean for A free trip i meant to build a friendship and convo with a deckhand making it a lot easier to get on a few trips, and the last jigstick i make cost me $75 bucks

    Wow trying to pinhead on the internet lol. Now I've seen it all. I just remember getting my first try after fishing with mike thompson on the amigo paid I believe and then after chatting in the wheel house going back out next trip free ride but with cleaning duties. Dont remember if it was from giving up JP or if its cuz he knew my pops. All I know is I almost cleared the galley when I poured acids instead of bleach into soap on accident lol. Swirled back and almost killed everyone in galley. If u do pinhead dont assume ask questions haha...btw doesn't hurt if u can be capable and self sufficient catching fish. Kind of a job resume imo

    Yeah I thought that was pretty funny...at the same time I can't knock the guy for trying to go fishing.

    The pinhead thing is a touchy subject. All the boats I have done it on in San Diego do not allow jackpot for me, or any other free riders, (apparently boats to the North are different about that). I bought a lot of tickets before I started looking familiar. Also I helped anywhere needed, didn't fish the stern, and I would hook and hand to kids as often as possible.

    It's also kind of something they ask you, you shouldn't ask them

    I had an annual pass on the Western Pride for 3 years, during which time every jackpot I won went straight to the crew. Got me real close with them and by the time I was 15 they had me working. I loved doing it, made a lot of really solid connections and I got to fish a lot.
