I got to thinking about this the other day and was just curious what the State requires for boat length before giving out a "guide" license for a salt water operator?
From a safety standpoint, I limit the number of people on board to 3 besides myself and I'm on a 26 footer. Safety aside, it can get "tight" when all 3 of them are fishing too!
P.s, I have no asperations to go pro, I'll just continue to send em to my friends who guide. In bigger boats than mine!
