    My Season So Far.... MULTIPLE Super Cows and much much more!!!!

    As always, its been an interesting season to say the least. There is something very special about bluefin tuna that always seem to captivate me. Not just the catches, but even the trips that we dont catch that always ends up with our minds asking more questions about this elusive creature...

    Consistently Catching Bluefin Tuna!

    Ill be first to admit that it hasn't been easy but given the right preparation and taking advantage of our opportunities, solid chances can be had. Over the last couple of trips, yesterday being the most recent, there hasn't been any pattern to these fish. We did have some "foamer" style of...

    The bluefin scenery never gets old and always keeps us on our toes. I actually was not on my boat, but rather on a clients new 2320 they had purchased last year. (Dustin, from this board as well). The boat is rigged really nice and very similar to my own. Kevin from West Coast Parker always...

    How much usable Fuel in Gas Tank

    I have a 07 2320 with a 150 gallon fuel tank…. I have never ran it all the way dry but i am curious out of the 150 gallons, how much is usable? 135 gallons? 140 gallons? Is there an "x" amount where the pump can not suck? or is all 150 gallons usable?
