Tips: Although tipping is not required, Captain Chancey works very hard to insure you a drag screaming and line singing fishing day. With that said; judge the quality of your trip, whether with Chew On This Charters, or another guide or charter service, by how hard your guide works for you. Most of the time, we can perform our magic. However, sometimes no matter how hard a Captain works, he cannot get the fish to cooperate. If your guide worked hard was courteous, took the time to teach you, and the charter was enjoyable, then by all means it is proper to leave him a gratuity of 10 to 15%. Some clients do not tip simply because they do not know it is accepted practice in the charter industry to tip the Captain, or in some cases the Mate. This is why we choose to mention tipping standards here.
