I know it's called fishing not catching, but is there a reasonable expectation to catch fish on charter? We booked a king charter out of Homer and trolled all day without a bite. I know it happens. I've been skunked on my boat more than once, but all the other boats in sight were hooking up. The Capt called another boat and matched the rigging, speed and depth but still nothing. He was getting frustrated along with the deckhand. My guess is we had bad bait.
My question is, how many others have had a similar experience? Would you ever go out with them again, based off this one trip?
Charters - I'm sure you've all had at least 1 bad day of fishing, how did you handle it? Did you offer the clients a discount on another trip or any other type of incentives to come back or just chalk it up to bad fishing?
What's your opinions?
