  1. Put your money in for Pro. Pre fish the waters from Port Bay to Ginna and find the best BT water. Get your 11 BT each day, toss in a kicker LT, and you'll cash a top 10. That's the Sodus strategy.

    yep that pretty much sums it up Rick

  2. Well said matter fact when the fishings tougher we work harder to try to put more fish in the boat then when the fish are biting and we don't have to work so hard

    I do a lot of off shore salt water fishing for tuna and wahoo. The trips are very expensive. A 24 hour tuna trip to the canyons runs 3600.00 on average. All of the boats we sail with require a 20% tip of the cost of the trip for the mate as the captains pay them nothing. That comes to a tip of 720.00 for the mate for his time prior to the boat sailing as well as the cleaning of fish and cleaning of the boat once back at the dock. The mates average 30 hours of work for a 24 hour trip. If you do the math, they are making 24.00 an hour while the captain keeps the full fare.The 3600.00 trip really costs 4320.00 no matter how you slice it. In my opinion, 20% on a Lake Ontario trip sounds fair.

  4. I work on a boat the runs 160 to 180 trips per year if your charter has a mate on board tipping the mate 75 / 100 a day is not out if the ordinary having. Captain and mate on the boat for the trip adds to the experience and specially if it ruff out . Regardless how good the fishing is should have nothing. To do how you tip . No matter. What we give are all the give the customers A memorable experience.
