Ho much are they charging you and will there be a 1st mate or just the captain?

Anywhere from $35 and up depending on how hard he/she works.

Inshore fishing is my favorite...much more challenging and a variety of fish.

Which guide?

I was going to suggest $40-50

Would love to hear more about the trip and who the Captain was.

Depends on the service and if he is furnishing soft drinks/snacks....15% would be $52.50. 10% is $35

Also..how much you catch and the "fun" factor...
