Went fishing on Thursday, March 15, 2018

Were scheduled a full day of fishing with Captian Gervyn and his mate.  They were very friendly.  They picked us up on time.  They had a cooler full of water, beer , icetea and soda along with fresh pineapple and watermelon.  The sandwiches were just ok.  I would suggest to take your own food . 
The trip was great until the Captian asked how much of our fish we wanted.  Of course I paid $750 for all day, your sign you have hidden by the seats suggests 20% tip for the mate for cleaning and you want some of my fish.  We were going to offer anyway to give them a filet from the dorado we caught and they almost kept a whole fish by putting it back in their cooler.  Plus we did give them $120 tip that I now wish I didn’t since they tried to keep a whole fish.  I don’t think they made a mistake.  I took back one filet but should of keep it all. 

If you choose them. I would still tip them but KEEP MY FISH.

Hi Mr. Scott Gerton.

You mentioned 3 imprtants points that i need to clear up.

1- About the sandwichs. Thanks, i will keep that in mind.

2- You catched 3 big mahi mahi, but why not to share at less 1 filet with the crew meanwhile you take 5 with you. If there was a mistake about the fish, it was from my mate that he did not understand what i said. (Only one filet for us) That was what i talked with you, 1 filet. I couldn’t see waht he did with the fish cos i was up on the bridge.

3-  You said that there is a sign who says about the 20% but that is just for tiping the crew for the dayof work, not for paying to the mate who HAS to clean and allowe you to keep the fish if you want. We clean the fish, cos that is our work and placer for you, doesn’t matter if you take or not the fish. I don’t see in the sign anything about cleaning fish. But for sure, i will keep that in mind. The tips are a suggest; You don’t have to give if you don’t want.  This situation did not have to have happened.
