So you hire someone to take you fishing. They do there job and you do not tip them they may not take you again. WOWSituational. I usually tip $100 on a trip that I go by myself assuming I got good service. If I'm splitting a trip I'll tip around $50-75. In my opinion, if I enjoyed myself and want to go again I'll tip just to ensure I get a spot next time and also better service than most people. You'll be surprised how much more people are willing to reveal and how much more you get out of subsequent trips when you tip someone for their time (and all things in life in general). So anyone who isn't tipping is more-so short changing themselves and all guides know this. It's typical to not get called back when you don't tip.
I always tip unless the service is bad. I think most people are the same way. You are trying to argue something that's personal preference anyways.So you hire someone to take you fishing. They do there job and you do not tip them they may not take you again. WOW
I can see tipping a deckhand, but tipping the guide for doing a good job is like tipping the Astros (players) when they win, think about it. Your talking about tipping the waiter not the owner, if a guide is working for someone then it mite be inline. Would you tip the resturant owner if it was good food....WWIts like going to a restaurant. They are going to charge you $20 for the food, but the person doing the work getting it to you and making sure you have everything you need to make the meal enjoyable isn't seeing a dime of the steak money. That's where you step in and show them how good of a job they did.
