Default Fishing - Charter Boat Etiquette

Are you supposed to tip the charter boat captain, mate, or other crew members?

We usually give $20.00-$25.00 per man. Seems to be the norm with four guys on average.

If anyone needs numbers for good boats for any of the lakes, PM me.

We went with $50 for the Captain and mate to split, and sent them home with fish, so I think we did OK.
