    Got me a new deckhand

    Making memories is what it is all about. I started taking my grandson at about 4 or 5, set him up with a sabiki and got lots of chum for the next trip. didn't care what he caught as long as he caught a lot of it. Now he is 15 and hooked. My dad got me hooked early on too.

    You need to find some new friends... have the same problem and end up going alone most of the time. Got a big tuna, alone, long, long fight... got it to the boat and couldn't get it in the boat, almost pulled me over the rail and I ended up watching it swim away with my gaff in it.

    on the manifest it will ask for a date to enter and a date to leave Mexico, usually you make those dates six months apart. that is the only thing i can think of that gives the time frame, but it is good for six months, only good for one entry and one departure but you have six months to do it in.
