I'd love to HO, but I'm just wondering if a certain level of knowledge and experience is generally assumed to be had by prospective HO's, since I never see it mentioned? Or can you be relatively green as long as you pay your share of the expenses, help out where needed, and are willing to learn?

I never have problems with green HOs as long as they let me know. Personally, I love introducing people to offshore fishing and as long as they are honest as to their experience level, I know what to expect. It's a lot better than when someone says they know what their doing and look at you funny when you ask them to clear the teaser line or rig a ballyhoo. The key is be willing to learn, work hard (especially cleanup time) and pitch for fuel/bait/ice. Oh yeah, no black soled shoes or nanners.

What ever you do, dont drop a $1000 rod & reel overboard!!!!!:D I am far from a pro and never mind having someone that can look up to me as a mentor. Just be honest and willing to help. Martin

Teaching someone and seeing their reaction to the offshore adventure is the greatest thing in the world...If your HO"ing, dont be afraid to say"I dont know / never done this before"....we were all there and I still learn every time I am out there, and I have been at this over 20 years....Be respectful of the boat, equipment, and Captian, and you will be invited back--at least on my boat
