when the horn’s blown three times and the last line is reeled up and the last fish cleaned and bagged and the boat’s on its way home, the crew’s work is STILL not done…

Don’t forget to tip the mate. Which ONE do you tip? Usual etiquette is the one who’s cutting the fish… These people work hard to keep you in bait and to net your fish and clear your tangles and retie rigs and most of all keep you and your party safe… show your appreciation…
