My wife thought the same thing. She did absolutely fine. Unbelievable experience and Mikeedaguy trips are really fun.
I was just talking to my wife about that. Now to find someone
Yes he was so disappointed that they were filleting it. He wanted to have it mounted so he could hang it on his wall.
The rod he used was one...
You bet. Grandma too.
Yes my went 307 and my wife’s 267. Everyone got one over 200
I don’t know about that. We did a trip last February on the Apollo and it was top notch. All the way through including their cantina.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] Here’s a pic of him hiding from the seagulls so he could attack them when they tried to steal HIS bait lol
Also got to teach him what you do with the jackpot. Watching him hand a little more than half to the deckhands with a smile on his face thanking them.
Second this. Early June might even have a shot at bluefin.

But the bluefin report is legit
MikeeDaGuy does charters and so does Picasso.
I’ve had the privilege of fishing with both guys and wouldn’t hesitate on doing it again.
I went through the same thing last year. A friend of mine had a charter on the Apollo in February in puerto Vallarta.
My avatar says it all. 307...
Was worth waiting for as usual.
Like going fishing with y’all while I work lol
My cowboys are still in
So what happened to it and the stern drive
Was it gas or diesel
Naw just more of them
Thanks for another enjoyable story Joe. You know that I always look forward to them.
You maybe that guy but a great one to fish with.
Excellent can’t wait to read the next Nebraska story.
I’m friends with the crew. They got 17 cows (over 200lbs) plus the one at 108.
All cows on the kite.
I saw on marine traffic that they’re headed to Puerto Vallarta
As usual I had to read it twice. Thanks Joe
Man I can’t believe what a shit show this post became.
MikeeDaGuy you might want to start a new thread.
When I heard about your trip last year I...
Wow had to check twice that this report was about the intrepid.
Another charter master had issues filling a trip. He couldn’t go because his mother had just died. Mike jumped on with me to fill the trip so the...

Ok after looking at more pictures that my son took it’s a red footed booby
After looking at pictures it looks similar to a booby but I can’t find any that color
Still waiting for an answer on the loading issue.
I can hook you up with a charter group if you like.
Friend me on Facebook. Mike Turner
My avatar is a 307lb yellowfin
Why does the link say error
Sorry I just talked to him and they filled it

The Apollo was looking for someone
The Craigslist post expired. More info please

Couldn’t resist reading it again Joe. Hope to fish with you again.
We bought a 12v frying pan. Breakfast sausage egg and cheese burritos.
We will be out too. Party Crasher gets our attention. Rumor is we’re starting at the 182 then head south towards the 302
I second that Joe. Wow you went back already.
We chartered with start me up. They let us keep the fish.
Not licensed but have 44 years experience. I do a lot of work for apartment complexes
I thought the same thing. Looks more like a shark to me.

Ok then the legend is very fishy
Pacific dawn only takes 16. Not at hm but same parking lot.
Come on Nebraska. You’re killing me.
Last year I bought a kite rod from squidco for $25. Got the yummies at fishermen’s landing completely set up.
I use an avet 30/2 for the fish reel.
Joe it was great fishing with you and reading your writing put me right back there. Bravo my friend. I also feel like I made some new friends.
Don’t you mean THAT GIRL lol
I’m waiting in anticipation of Picasso’s write up on this trip.

Great write up. Felt like I was right there with you. Now I can’t wait for Nebraska’s post.
Sorry I was on the wrong post. MikeeDaGuy has a trip in August that he is looking to fill.
His trip is a 2.5 day trip.
Not to mention MikeeDaGuy charters are super fun. Great raffles and a fun group to fish with.
6- bottles of dark beer
1-1/2 cups of brown sugar

I had a very similar experience. Seemed as the crew wasn’t excited about our group having a good time.
Very nice accomadations though.
We’re going on it in two weeks.
Fishing pv. Still open spots
[ATTACH] This is the guy that I use.
I can hardly wait. I’ve been thinking about this kinda trip for a couple years now and couldn’t believe that you scored it.
Not only a bucket...
The intrepid has been killing it recently. Now it’s your time for a cow
Man I’ve been already pumped for my trip in mid February on the Apollo.
This read got me even more pumped.
Ok again. I can’t believe that there are still openings on this trip. Trip of a lifetime for sure.
Haven’t seen that thread.
What’s the title
I can’t believe the pv trip isn’t sold out.
We used them also. Great operation
I thinking February 17 to 22
Tracker or traffic. I use marine traffic.

Water temp was 68ish. Bait was small but lively. And yes killed the motor and slid in with fish boiling 30’ out.
My son even threw a colt sniper...

Found boiling fish...
Holy crap. How did that not pull.
Last week it was 25lb flouro and #2 hooks. Need to chum.
Yes that's what convinced me to pay for the app. First one I've ever paid for
Wow just wow.
That app with fd is killer info

I'm in. Even though I'll be fishing.
I usually don't click on links but I'm sure glad that I did. Awesome report. Thank you

Hey guys I'm going on this 2 day trip next week. Limited load of 16. 4 spots open at this time. $640 includes the usual.
If you want to save it. I still say soak it in dark beer.
I told my son the same thing lol
Dark beer by the way. I use Sam Adams
We're launching at 1
That might not be big enough.
No you don't just license
Yes I almost fell over. Never get out of there that cheap lol
I just ordered them from Walmart. $999
Squidco has them for $20
Why isn't it on
You can adjust it to fly different directions.
Screw the tanks and gas. Boston big game kite is half the price of the aftco kite and flies with little wind.
Also will fly when wet.
I personally don't have a problem with the commercial fishing industry. They've been around for years and yes they have depleted fish in every...
I agree if you can afford both but either or I'd pick the 16
In my opinion if you need a two speed you'll need more line.
I'm looking at picking one of those up tomorrow
I'm not happy with the big 5 saber rods. I have 2 and they're weak.
Daiwa rod is better. You can find a penn senator relatively inexpensive....
Boatus does loans
We're going out to suck Tuesday lol
Was on the pacific dawn last year. Kite fish were divided equally and we were told so on the way out.
We stayed at the Sheraton harbor island marina last weekend.
I think they call it by another name like cabrillos or something like that.
I've been considering a rod from that blank but seems pricey.
Police line do not cross lol
Man I was wondering what all the masks were about. Thanks for the info
Great report but pics don't show
Boston big game kite works well.
Use braid and keep the braid out of the water.
If you have the aftco kite helium balloons Work excellent.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] We got a 39 pounder on the north 9.
Kept following the school but they were on the move.
Never could slide in on them again....
We use 65
262 skipjack flybridge
Just 100lbs bummer lol
We went out on the boat last year. Waited for 3 guys for over an hour. Just as we started out of the slip they show up.
No passports so we...
We use the 6/0 on our kite.
Here's another one. This time in San Diego.
Outside to the north
Or just try to fix the problem when you first saw what it was
They have a Facebook page. Check them out.
Must not have been to good.
We were on our way out there this morning. Had engine problems and had to turn back short of the 182.
60lb was our biggest gun and my son told me...
I use FishTrack It has a lot of info.
I second the pacific dawn.
Too much fun. Don't be intimidated. Talk and make friends with guys on the way out. While trolling make friends with deck hands.
Pacific queen. My .02
We saw that from afar and wondered what was going on
Live bait sport fishing
The original post was about a guy catching one fish.
All of this information is very interesting. Some of the same stuff happens in the sea of Cortez and probably many other places.
My only problem...
I caught one in the middle of a school of yft. Couldn't believe it.
Haven't ever had enough.

The idiot is correct. The regs say no more than 7 in your possession including your home and other places.
Hey Jim good to her from you.
I'll let Adam know.
Crazy kid talked me into going back out this afternoon.
Let you know what happens
Yes we did. There was so much blood on the deck that at one time the bilge was pumping out nothing but blood.
My arms and shoulders are killing me today. But way worth the pain. Can't believe that we were all alone. After all it was fish dope numbers that...

Thats a stretch to say that and try to call him out. He could fish weekly with a buddy who has fishdope while he owns the boat. This is what i do....
Totally worth it. Keeps you informed on water conditions and where not to be. Day to day you can follow the fish to plot your trip.
Doesn't fish dope have all this and easier to read
Some guys just don't understand that 200lb fish aren't always around here. When they are you gotta go for them.
Where do I get a visa to fish the islands
Last Sunday they were crazy.
