" I'd rather fish and not catch then have somebody fish for me." agree 100% & that has to be established before the charter booking .
one of my 1st guided trips ( Crystal River solo ) the guide wanted to throw because he thought I wanted more fish for the take home, but in reality he was taken fish because he knew I was learning the pattern . It stopped when I asked " if you throw one more time 1/2 the charter fee is yours ! We both laughed 31" Rusty Raider on Johnson Gold spoon
#1 son & I Tarpon fished Bahia Honda Key where the communication between the guide & us was established before ( at the dock ) of setting the hook ourselves , some capts have clients who do know how to fish so they help out to take the photo.
