People tip whatever they wanna tip. It's no obligation.
Pay your bill. Pocket the jackpot fee. Give the crew the rest.
You only have a few dollars in the pot so if the service is good pay your tab and give them the rest. If the service sucks stiff them.
Well after reading this I do feel like a cheapskate, I had no idea that "everyone knows" you should return from (30 to 50%) up to 100% of your paycheck plus your cost to your employer for providing you with the opportunity to work. I had no idea that so many people would simply walk away from a $650,000 lottery winning to support California schools. I had no idea that so many of you would donate your $10K winnings at Viejas to the dealer. You are a lot of really stand up guys!
In my view a tip is just that, its a reward for service. There is no "standard", if the guy bent over backwards to help you then reward him, if he pretty much blew you off then fuck him.
It's a brutal job but no one is forcing them to do it. Its a lifestyle choice. If you want money you don't work fishing boats. If you want to fish for a living then you have to understand that it's not going to pay very well.
Dick. Any time I've I've won jp I've given it to the crew.
What a dildo
I tip based on service, not charity.
I've decked many times, and I have been tipped very well, and not so well at times, but I always busted my ass for the customer. I would NEVER expect them to give me their jackpot.
Just tip me for what you feel my service was worth.
I've won a few over the years and I usually pay my galley tab (which is typically small) and tip the rest. If nothing else, maybe it gets me karma for the next time.
if you want the money to go to the crew theres only one way to m,ake sure that happens, dont participate in the JP and put that money on top of your standard tip.
i am curious how many of you tip the hardworking kid at mcdonalds, how about employees at the supermarket, gas station, or any other retailer or service provider? all businesses are part of a "service industry".
if your selling something, you have customers, if you have customers, you are providing a service or goods, therefore you are providing service by default.
a tip should never be expected, it is a reward given when people go above and beyond.
Yep, pay it forward to earn that good fishing karma!
Jackpots and tipping are so arbitrary.
I have won many times and always pay my galley tab and fish cleaning, then let them have the rest. Sometimes I might ask for a T-shirt or other paraphernalia. In 1/2 and 3/4 day they sometimes give you a free trip too.
If the crew sucked I might not do it, but that almost never happens.
why even bother with a jackpot anyway, if the money "goes to the crew"? it just promotes lazy deckhands who chit-chat with their buddies or girls and expect the jackpot money at the end of the trip. One of the many reasons I avoid sportboats like the plague now.
There's always "THAT GUY ""on the boat. We've all seen them. Karma buddy . He'll get his. Probably a guy that never goes fishing. I always give JPMORGAN back to guys. They deserve it busting ass like that. There's exception to crew sometimes but they don't last long. I always consider 20% of trip to crew EVERY TRIP.
So many Aholes in the world today....... even among our own fishing community.
It has become every man for himself....
If I ask you how much to tip the crew, then by all means give me some advice, if I don't, then it's really none of your business what I do with my winnings.
The few times I've been lucky enough to jp I've given it all to the crew. It's free money! AND I pay my galley tab and fillet bill out of my own pocket. I'm not even close to being rich, but I know what it's like to rely on tips. We've all been stiffed, but never by any of you!, thank goodness!
On the few sportboats I've stepped on over the years my normal tip is 20% of the trip cost. I'd tip more if some "above and beyond" assistance had occurred. Which hasn't happened yet. I get the same help as anyone else on the boat.
Deckhands bust their ass on any trip. But guess what? I busted my ass to go on that trip. So if I throw down a few bucks on A BET AND WIN kudos to me.
I'm so fucking tired of this bleeding heart liberal mentality with their hand in MY pocket telling me how much I should pay for whatever.

what did you tell him on the boat
I'm with this guy, next time tell him on the boat not here on BD. If you man enough to tell the guy that on the boat, man up and be ready to fist fight. Spouting off your feelings here is bullshit.
Here we go again with another tipping thread.
I respect those that work on boats as I myself have worked on a boat and owned a sportfishing charter business.
My belief is that tips are always appreciated and recommended however NOT mandatory or required.
Just my two cents, but I think jackpot should belong to the winner and he/she decides what to tip.
When I play black jack in Vegas and win the hand, I don't tip all my winnings to the dealer. It's Bloodydecks so I'm sure I'll get some shit for this post.
Again, my belief is, tips are appreciated and recommended but never mandatory unless stated.
We need to find out who this asshole was and get his take on the situation. There's two sides to every coin you know.
