This was my third trip outing on the Sweet Jody as part of a group of fishmen out of Fort Benning, GA. I will say we caught fish but this trip I was disturded at the end of the fishing how the Deck Hands were permitted to drink alcohol and the CPT in the wheel house in plan view was either fraternizing with a female customer or being rather affectionate in plain sight to any customer's sitting up on the top deck. As stated, prior trips had been very professional and well done. But this trip left a bad taste of unprofessional conduct - one deck hand at the end of the trip actually insulted one of our group by publicly ranting about the additional tip the individual attempted to give the Deck Hand - our group member had already tipped a 25% gratuity and this deck hand made a complete you know what of himself by trying to humilate one of our group members in front of all the customer's onboard. It was shameful he had to endure this deck hand's attempt to humilate him in front of other customers. Will definitely look at the other Party Boats for my next fishing trip. I thought it very unprofessional to have deck hands who were drinking in front of customers and a boat CPT being affectionate in the wheelhose. Not a good atomosphere or seaworthy professionalism.
