We have a great thread going on about what makes a good charter and there is some great info on it. My question is this. What are the responsibilities of a charter fisherman? The charter operator is only one part of the operation. The people he is taking fishing for the day or week are important as well. We talked about what they us when we pay them to take us out but what do we owe them and also what do i owe the other people on the charter that are not with our group if we dont charter the whole boat. I have a few to get us started but i think we have responsibilities to them as well.
1. I owe it to EVERYONE to be on time and ready to go at the preset time.
2. The charter operator paid a lot of money for his boat and gear. Treat it with respect.
3. I owe it to the captain to tell him about my ability to tolerate rough seas at the time i book the charter not on the way out of the harbor.
