Nice,
I went on my my first trip of the season with Dave the welder and his Bro. We ended up with one limit and about 70 shorts or more out in rocky point with dozens of our closest friends. It was a nice crawl, a nice tide, but we just got so so results. It was a great night and a great time dinner was included! See ya out there Boyz.

Welcome to the flake club. All I ever go through is flaking. The conversations usually go something like this:
"You good for tonight?"
"Yep."
"Great, boat time is 4:30, I'll get dinner."

25 minutes (if they even let me know at all) before we're supposed to leave "Oh hey by the way I can't go."
Thank you so much, every.fricken.time.its.like.clockwork. Good to know I'm not the only one that goes through it.

So far as of today, I've never been asked to go. I posted a post, as a boat ho , to go hooping . Got a few few responses and remarks but still no invitation. I'm not asking to go for free but it's on my bucket list to catch and bring g home a few bugs

    Everyone wants to go until its time to go. If they flake they get put to the bottom of the list.

    How is that possible?? Every time I've been a boat ho it's: arrive on time - read: early), money up front (unless the owner wants it at the end), breakfast burritos for everyone on the boat, drinks, never the first one to put a bait in the water and I keep my ass there to help clean until the owner is ready to leave. Friends don't flake...

    Friends is exactly the problem, Friends take advantage it’s hard to tell friends to pay up easier with a hoe

    I personally notice that the flakyness is limited when payment is due before the trip. Also when they still flake you already have fuel and bait money. Seems that people flake less all the same.

    Good lord you are the best ho ever! The only thing I disagree with is if you are able to have your bait in the water get it in the water! We are trying to catch a limit, and maybe you are the hot stick!

    Everyone thinks you’re rich when own a boat but when in fact it’s exact opposite, I put just about everything I have and countless hours to keep this boat on the water and when someone hands me a 20 at the end of the night it’s a slap in the face. No shit it happened to me the other night from the neighbor he palmed cash while shaking my hand n said "Don’t argue with me" So politely I put it in my pocket pulling it out later after he left and it was a $20 bill, he left that night with eight bugs...

    bro you and I are almost the sameI have friends that have done that to me, we’ll go to Catalina on my Whaler, and while it’s a helluva lot cheaper than running the big boat, it’s still not free, and the clowns I call my friends think it is. They won’t pay me, then I have to continue to hunt them down, and basically say ‘well, you don’t pay, you don’t go again, period, end of discussion.” Then they get all pissed when I don’t invite them again, and if I’m lucky, they’ll Venmo me $20 or $30 and think that covers it. It’s incredible that people think that $30 will cover fuel, even for a 17’ boat. That’ll cover maybe 8 gallons. Do you get 40 gallons in $30 for your car? If so I want to know the gas station you go to cause I’m definitely going there! (Sarcasm). Probably my largest pet peeve of ANYTHING besides flakiness.

    Are you guys estimating the cost upfront?
    You know what the launch, truck cost, bait and some idea what you are gong to burn in the boat. Everyone should know what their end is going to be upfront. If you don't have that cash in hand, maybe next week. Given that if they flake, they are out. Maybe they get a nod next season, maybe not. So if you need a Ho let me know, it's so much easier to fish on other peoples boat! If not we can take my rig maybe, it will cost us about $65 each if we make bait to fish the front side of Cat.

    Sounds like money was never discussed before the trip? Just like everything else, over communication is key, that way you don't get some bullshit reason.

    How much does a three-quarter day Or night with David Hanson hooping cost and how much time do you actually good to fish on one compared to a private boat? I don’t get on anybody’s ride without a promise to reciprocate or at least $100 in my pocket that I’m willing to part with and make damn sure he excepts it !

    Nope the dude in question was told ahead of time that my cost was $100 at least to run I assumed he would have clue enough to give me more than $20 my bad
