    2nd Shawn, Jeff,Dave,Zar on deck and Ian cookin good eats in the galley.
    We rolled with a full load of fuel and bait at 9pm in a stiff breeze
    and rolling sw swell, and bottom line we're GOIN YARD down 160+
    where bluefin caught last week. With a load of veteran winders,
    Norm, Jeff, Ray, Darryl, Ed, Mark, Hector,Ken, Jason, and many more we
    dumped the jigs in about 100 miles. Jigs-only YT no tuna whole trip.
    We trolled on down to the zone, boxed it all of day 2=no tuna
    metered, jig strikes, jumpers =NADA. NOW the fun, 2nd paddy day one
    over 200 yellows, 253 for the day. Day 2, even more insane....2 day limits
    by 1st hr., started throwing them back...easily hooked over 500.
    These wern't lil baby 2-3's like last yr, really nice eating 7=14lb rockets!
    They bit on 30-50 with dines or jigs, megabaits, the whole kitchen sink.
    Lot of carnage but goes with the game. Fish and human blood flyin. LOL
    IF you wanted a season busting, ass kicking, blood flying knock down til
    ya drop ripper, THIS WAS IT! LOL Lot of fun, all the smack you could want.
    Anyway, great way to start the season and everyone had full big coolers
    of tasty filets, WOW what a fun trip. We decided to made this an annual.
    Had a great time fishing with all of you, and look forward to doing it again.
    Here's a few pics we'll post more later from others
    when they wake up or get home. LOL
    THANKS AGAIN TO CHRIS AND THE ENTIRE CHIEF CREW.....
    WE HAD A ROCKIN GOOD TIME. SEE YOU SOON. :git:

    Hi gang we did work up till 5pm Thursday night to get all systems in order and get off the dock in one piece as this was our first off shore shake down trip after 6 months on boat work and up grades. I would just like to add a few photos and thank everyone for giving me and the crew a chance to display our talents in all areas and show off what we have to offer.
