Two more Fridays and we are on our way! I really appreciate all the help and suggestions that have been given on this board.

I may have overlooked this post, but what about tipping? In the states everyone has their hand out for a tip. In some areas you insult the host by tipping. I'm not trying to be a cheap skate, but is tipping expected, if so what %? Or is it a courtesy for above and beyond for excellent service?

We have a trip with capt B on a dive / fishing trip. I am putting together a "Care Package of tackle" for him. Capt Jeff any suggestions of what is needed or will be appreciated? Email me with your suggestions

We have a "Dive / Fishing / Feast" set up for Monday with the Capt. We will probably schedule more, but since this is our first time we were not sure on what to schedule.

We live at the coast of NC so fishing is the only thing we do, other than drink beer. Pretty good at both! laugh

We would like to do some wade fishing, is this possible or do we need to charter a guide?
