On the other hand, the worst charter I've ever been on was a mako shark trip out of Cape May, NJ. I won't name names, but this tweezer of a captain did nothing but talk about how good the tuna bite was in the canyon. All day he's on the radio with the tuna boats, basically implying that we were idiots for wanting to go shark fishing. Of course, a tuna trip would have cost about $600 more. He also complained about cigarette ashes on deck, and insisted the rods remain tethered to the boat so was not to lose them. Fighting a mako with a tethered rod isn't easy, and as for the ashes, c'mon...if we deck a shark the boat will get dirty. He put no effort into the day, and we only hooked and lost one fish.
