Had a friend as me how do I plan on paying for gas since I upgraded my boat size and fuel cost. I said, well if friends want to go fishing with me, they will have to chip in for fuel. He stated that I would need a charters License for this since I am accepting money for taking someone fishing. I think that is total bull----. Its not like I am advertising for customers, I see it as being a responsible person of not expecting something for free and being taken advantage of. I feel it is my choice to accept or decline money for fuel from a friend or someone you take fishing or out for a boat ride. Does anyone know the legal answer to this question?
