    who is Paul camera on the royal star?

    Paul worked the deck/engineer on the RS for I believe th last 5 plus years. He is a One of the hot new young guns coming up and I am glad that he is getting to run more trips. Well deserved.

    Which would be more rail room

    My feeling is that a good fisherman can make either work. I would be more focused on overall experience. In my many years of riding the AA each trip is like being with your extended family. The crew is just awesome and IMHO the best. That is what I base my decision on. Not how much rail space...

    How bad are Sharks at the Bank & Buffer Zone.

    Got back from trip on the Star a few weeks ago. The sharks at Clarion were manageable. The sharks at Hurricane were so thick that it was un-fishable. We spent two days at the bank and it was crazy frustrating.

    Showtime on the Star

    Great Job Joe!! It was great to be able to share the rail with you. You captured the trip so vividly. My take away from the trip "Nothing colder than yesterday's hot dog"

    Wifi performance on the boats

    I have read several posts about the performance on the LR boats who have it. My question would be how did the apps like voxer, or viber work. I think that Skype would need too much bandwidth to work. I am just curious as i am looking for an option to the sat phone. You guys that have ridden...

    How fat is too fat?

    I fished a three day on the AA about 15 yrs ago. It was not until about a week before the trip that was found out that Dan Hernandez had sponsored the trip. The thing I remember most was how his huge body could not fit in the the seat for dinner and had to sit on the end of bench with his huge...

    Need help choosing some Avets - 1st timer

    Excellent post.. Great info... But I will also throw in my two cents.. Do not use a Avet HX Raptor to fish cows. Tried it last year and got spool within 2 minutes of hooking the fish. They do not have the capacity to fish cows. I have a regular HX that I fish bombs for wahoo. No need to...

    Going Long...Which Boat, Which Trip

    The Accurate Trip on the AA is one of the popular ones. The Ken's Custom Rods and Avet Trip are usually booked a year in advance.. I am partial to the AA. Been fishing the book for years and they are like family.. Good luck finding a trip

    It's only a matter of time until all of the LR boats have it. It was great to get the play by play on the Excel Trips this year. Indy is having it installed now during their yearly maintenance. Even Old School guys like Frank are going with it. Part of me is torn, as techinology keeps us more...
