    Offshore Is this common on the tuna grounds?

    Pretty damn inconsiderate if you ask me. Most of the fleets skippers recommend during the galley huddle, to fish no lighter than 30lb. And prefer 40lb. Because of the same type of scenario (hours on a fish). No excuse.

    1.5 Day: Aztec, Prowler, or Dominator?

    Pay a little more and go on the SHOGUN. Awesome boat, crew, food. Nice staterooms, comfortable. I used to fish on Prowler. Great boat and skipper, but kinda tight quarters. shogun is truly long range style. They even pull out the kite rig on 1 1/2 day trips.

    Offshore Bait Rolling

    I went on a 1 1/2 day last week and was surprised by the way the bait was loaded at the bait dock. No scoops. Just buckets! One after another they handed the buckets into the wells. I'm sure it made a difference. Although some of our sardines rolled, most stayed in decent condition through the trip.

    Offshore what color feather for trolling

    I don't bring trolling gear anymore. Use what's onboard. If you're just dying to use you own stuff, bring zukers or clones- purple/black, green/yellow (zucchini).
