So here is our problem, on some of the split party trips that I have run this summer there have been some fishermen that have preexisting health / age conditions that have prohibited me from fishing where I wanted to becasue I was concerned that they would not be able to safely fish. In these same conditions, anyone who was healthy would be fine. So the question is:
Can I have some kind of waiver that explains that halibut fishing in the ocean requires some basic level of strength and wellness? Any suggestions on how we can educate potential customers on what is physcially reqired to enjoy an ocean halibut trip in the Gulf of Alaska?
I would hate to have someone who is not fit to be on the boat fall and hurt themselves but on the otherhand I don't want to discriminate against anyone or make it seem like we are fishing in a rough, dangerous ocean all the time.
