    8 Day trip in Mid-June

    I'm on the Rooster in late September this year. Trying to figure out another trip....probably needs to be later in the year though with family and work balance. On a lighter note I'm going to Fiji with the family this summer....must be some kind of fishing out there?

    8 Day trip in Mid-June

    I have fished almost all the LR trip options over the years. From 3 - 16 day trips. I have probably fished the early summer trips more than any other. They are unique and this is what I like about them. 1) Trips cost less 2) Weather is cooler...but still tropical once you get down to the...

    Fish 3 times the line test

    I caught an 8# Yellowfin Tuna on 130# and Jack-Poled him and few of his buddies. The line size was about 22 times the size of the fish. I like to keep the odds in my favor. o_O

    105 FOOT BOATS

    Huh? You saw the post above right? The Q105 is still working...looks in really good shape too....just not a sportfishing boat any more. There is a ton of really old sportfishing boats that still pass Coast Guard inspection every year.....The Q105 was more about management style than age.

    secondary/emergency exits on LR boats

    There were not sleeping in the galley. The crew on that boat, like many of the long range boats, sleep behind the wheel house which is above the galley. Some other post just mentioned the crew admitted they were all asleep. So where they sleep is above where the fire the time...

    secondary/emergency exits on LR boats

    I worked on SD boats for 5 years. The great boats I worked on had a crew member roving the deck at all times. Separate from the license driving the boat. The more typical day boats they repurposed this to include the second ticket was driving the boat and was the rover. The shady boats I...
