i have fished many boats and worked on a few.never had such a bad time on a SD boat than yesterday.the fishing was not good yesterday but driving around basically the 277 area from 7 till 2 is not a good choice in my opinion.4$ beers and 7$ breakfast burritos did not help.i understand that the owners need too pay for all the renovations but that is going over board.and too top it all off when i did not tip what the captain told everyone on the boat too tip the crew he called me to the wheel house to ask me why i would tip so little.when i told him why he did not want to hear it.when passangers asked me why he called me to the wheel house i expained why and they all said they would never fish that boat again....niether will i not going to name it but its the newest old boat at fishermans landing im sure you can figure it out.
Alright i agree $4 beers bullshit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing

about this post is the Captain telling people how much they should tip. Then calling you to the wheel house. Thats complete BS. Name the boat and the Captain so I can warn my friends.

Driving around for hours, and pricey drinks...well that stuff comes with public boats. But i am on your side when it comes to the tip BS.

SHit, does that equal up to Dave Hansens 50% suggestion LOL

Hey bros if someone has a bad experiance , on a trip that they payed for . and feel they were not given a fighting chance to catch fish .m hell man they can say anything they want about the way they were treated . its a free country freedom of speech remember , this person really felt he wasnt given a fair chance to hookup. Now if the rest of the fleet was decking fish and the area was in reach and the boat did not make an effort to go to that zone . well something wrong there . and yes bout after 30 days back to back trips with crew and tickets busting ass . there will b some slack days . let people speak there peace man . dont let one slow or bad experience keep u from getting out there maybe on a different boat . we all have had bad trips . but no matter how a trip ended up please give the crew a little something . they are human they get burnt out . I have been in both shoes working and a paying customer on sport boats since i was a decky on the speed twin . with mel shears islandia . .70s . dont let 1 bad trip get ya brother . remember fishing is fun thats why we do it roger. luv an fishes to all and bless this season it was way over due .

$4 Beer is pretty reasonable since most clubs charge $7-10 on average. But I'd be pissed if the captain couldn't find fish, shitty attitudes from the crew, given shit for using a swivel, then interrogated over the tip. $4 beer and $7 burrito wouldn't bother me in the least. Just IMO.

At least you had beer, i was on a boat one time when everybody was pounding Coors lights and the cook would only put 12 hot ones in the cooler at a time so we never had cold beer the whole trip That's something to bitch about !

Trunk777 its called Fishing not catching, and the 277 has been getting hamered just like the 209, Go buy a boat of your own and see what it costs in fuel everyday you go out much more than you pay for a Party boat try the area 4 mi SE off Cat lots of fish to be had.

i understand the cost.and my point exactaly why fish an area like that and keep going back to it i guess just a bad choice of boats on my part next time ill stick to the boats i normally fish but that is the only one that had spots i know why now

The fishing and food prices are what they are. Skunks happen and you have to deal with it.

Now the attitudes and the capt calling you out? Fuck that tell that idiot to pound sand. To many crews are expecting tips now no matter how they treat people that's why I only go on certain boats because I know the crew will treat people right. What did you tell the capt? That's bullshit him telling you to tip $60 I would have told him to kiss my ass and learn to treat his customers right next time.

The day beers on sport boats cost the same as a downtown SD nightclub is when I quit going out! Just saying to the guy who is ok with $4 beers as compared to nightclubs. I remember when they were $1 each. I have no problems paying a few bucks for a beer on a party boat....

If the wheelhouse episode happened the way you describe then I totally agree with Bill.

I do get the Captains decision. Downhill ride home, all that good area off Carlsbad, across the 312 and 209 with new fish just moving in and comitting time in the most recent productive area. Believe it or not that was a pretty decent course for that day.

100 percent on point! Let me treat you like shit, then u tip me! I don't gaf how good the fishing is, I won't fish with captains and crews like that. Yet people will take that type of treatment, and continue to come back for more. Wt ----? And they defend the behaivor? Sounds like an abused spouse! Lmao

Certain boats are always good, even when they are tired and overworked! They are what we call professional and customer driven! They get it!
