I've given $100 after a very successful full day flats, for two and $75 for successful 4-5 hour bridge tarpon fishing charter. Both guides were on the top of their game and treated my daughter and I with respect. To me a tip is for over and above service for a captain only charter, if a mate is involved many times it represents his days earnings.

We use 15% to start and do a little more or less depending on the service.

Unless the trip is a complete disaster, a 20% tip for the mate would be appropriate. If the trip is absolutely fantastic, a little extra could be in order.

4 adults spending 250 a couple would be about 50 bucks a couple ?

For a $500.00 charter, $100.00 would be 20%. So $50.00 a couple would work.
