I was at a friend's boat at a storage lot in Seward and it had a note taped on the tongue of his trailer warning folks somebody was hanging around the ramps offering to share gas, oil, bait, etc. expenses to go fishing, then giving out a ticket with a $5000 fine if they accepted. We've gone through the voluntary contribution of expenses key to avoiding the for hire or charter rules so is this a legal trap establishing payment prior to taking somebody out as a condition? The Open Seat thread would be in trouble if it was. Anybody have any experience or insight on what's going on here and who's doing it?
