re: Getting skunked on a charter trip - lafishcommander on 5/21/14 at 5:10 pm
To answer your question about how much is a good tip I'll break it down what a deck hand or captain expects. 10% of the trip total is expected if they did there job 15% if you thought he did an incredible job 20% if it was one of your best trips ever and the whole crew did more than you expected...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Why would you rather advertise . I brought you where we didn't see a fish. If you know the fish are there they just didn't bite one day, that doesn't mean they won't be hungry and bitting the next. A fishing charter is the opportunity to catch fish. They obviously had the opportunity if the fish wer...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Getting skunked on a charter trip - lafishcommander on 5/21/14 at 12:30 pm
If a guide spends his day doing everything he can spending his money paying his boat note, paying his insurance and paying for all the maintenance then yes pay him. He did his job and it is called fishing. If you don't expect to pay if you don't catch then don't go. Because after 16 years of guiding...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Anybody know anything about wiggys sleeping bags? - lafishcommander on 5/15/14 at 1:00 am
There is no better bag than a wiggy. I spend 3 weeks in Alaska every year and without the wiggy it would be tough. I've seen every type of sleeping bag but when everyone was freezing with there thermals on I was almost hot with just boxers. They still insulate you even if there wet. You can wash the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Best Method for Shipping Wild Game. - lafishcommander on 7/6/13 at 10:36 am
I hunt all over the U.S. and the best way to get your game home with you is to bring it on the plane. I try to freeze my wild game and then put it in a styrofoam ice chest that fits in a card board box so you can tape it up. Just check it on the plane like its one of your bags. That is by far the ch...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: The old "Aluminum vs Fiberglass" debate - lafishcommander on 7/5/13 at 12:37 pm
There is advantages to both boats. The fiberglass boats will ride better every time. Fiberglass is more forgiving and can flex some, aluminum does not. As far as repairing a boat, in my 15 plus years of going offshore around a 150 days a year. Fiberglass is a lot easier to repair. Anyone can fix fib...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
