at least 20% no matter what, tip the deckhands...

there should be a sign on any headboat stating the normal tip rate

always keep in mind when tipping deck hands its not in their control if the fish are biting or not. i am a deck hand and i don't make hourly pay i work off of tips and money from cleaning fish. 20% is what most boats ask for in tips.

I agree, if the deckhand is busting his ass and keeping up with everything throw some more money his way. The deckhand has the hardest job on the boat and cant help if the fish are biting or not.

keep in mind that most deckies work for tips only. the captain drives the boat....deckies do 80% of the work. they are there before the captain arrives and after he leaves; they do the rigging, gaffing, cleaning of both fish and boat, entertaining the clients, coaching them on proper fish fighting techniques where applicable, keep kids entertained, clean up YOUR puke when you cant handle the seas, etc. etc. take care of them.
