Great report. I love how you guys decided to bypass all the BS patty stops for 6" rats and just head south to the main fishing grounds. I had my best trip to date after the capt said the exact same thing and not a surprise you guys had just as good of results as we did. The question now is why don't all the boats do that? I mean who really cares about 200 rat yellows when you can have 300 Tuna???

You have obviously never been in a wide open tuna bite before.You guys caught over 400 YFT and you say you didnt have enough bait?sometimes you have to tag your own fish just how it is Gomer.If you BREAK your rod bouncing a fish its cause you're a retard.I had friends on this trip they said it was their best trip ever.
I guess I was on a different trip than you where. Same boat, same crew, and same days. Not enough bait for a three and half day trip but on the web site they say they have enough. Not enough room for your catch. Very little help from the crew they wanted you to bounce your tuna onto to the boat maybe braking your rod because the crew was not there to gaff your fish. then wait to have your fish tagged after you have to drag it to the bow. It was a 2 and half day trip really with no refund even for fuel that they did not use going home early. Hot bite day one and then you would be done not what I paid for.

Richard-1015- is my good fishing buddy. He came on this trip because of my past experiences with Capt. Frank and the Ranger 85. His experience on this trip was that the boat was not up to his standards. I respect that. We are all different. He is just more different than me. That being said, I know I saw him smile a lot while catching fish. We'll be fishing on my boat next week. Can't wait, Rich.

See Ya......Rich on TAXFREE

Really?You just bashed the shit out some good friends of mine after your trip caught 400 tuna because you had to drag your fish to the bow?Because you ran out of bait?If you fucking knew ANYTHING you would know the bait sucks ass this year and is dying halfway through trips.You're a bitch and a complainer and you did it on your very 1st post.Now the same on your 2nd,so 100% of your posts are crying about something,You're not gonna do so good around here.

I'm with you Fred..If you were on this trip, and you'd have seen this guy that's posted the stupid remarks about the bait, gaffin, boat, crew ect...You'd understand that he is a moron, and should be named Gomer..Excellent trip,Excellent boat...Bounce your 8-10lb yellowfin, no biggie..the crew was on the spot when we really needed the gaff, trust me

Roger all that. However, if it comes down to game day and, for whatever, reason there isn't enough bait, fuel, food, whatever for a 3.5 day trip would it be crazy for the captain to say something like: "Hey, no way our bait is going to last through three full days of fishing...so we are going to change this to a 2.5 day trip and bump the price down a bit." I get that shit happens, but shit happens in every business and in most cases the client does sort of expect to get what was promised. I think most of us understand about variables like poor bait but as a "consumer" or "client" there is a bit of frustration when a 2.5 day trip turns effectively into a 1.5 day trip, etc. and the captain is mostly driving around looking for the one big score/patty since there isn't enough bait to prospect on school and potentially holding patties. I've been on maybe 20 of these trips, and I'd honestly rather just fish hard and come back in early (partial refund or not) then play the bait rationing/conservation game. But then, I know, some folks would bitch about that too and actually look very much forward to being away from "home" for the full time, and maybe more ;-) . I'm just one who doesn't appreciate the boat rides that we often experience with bad/low bait while totally understanding that the Captain has very little to do with the quality/size of the bait beyond a couple key variables that he does control.

For what it is worth...one guy's observations...I'm very hesitant to go on 2.5+ day trips on our 1.5 day Fleet because essentially every time (in my limited experience of maybe 6 of these trips) it was bait conservation from the first stop...again with essentially no blame that can be attributable to the captain...just poor bait at the receiver, bait beat-up on the long runs in moderate swells/waves, and high summer water temps in which the sardines just aren't happy. I could however see going out on the long-range boats/fleet when they do the "shorter" trips of 2.5-3.5 days.

+1 one against the name-calling, no matter how stupid anyone thinks the comments are. The comments are going to stand or fall on their own merit and the experience and level of knowledge of the folks reading them. I think most folks read postive and negative comments and see each as just one data point. There are some guys who are probably going to bitch on every post but they'll be balanced by the guys who wouldn't ever utter a discouraging word, for whatever reason.

Fucking classic Fred. F*#K I miss the BD days from 10 years ago. R.I.P. to too many from back "in the day". That Ranger is a top-shelf operation. Wrap this thread up already and point "it" south however you can. This opportunity won't last too long. Not those kind of numbers. Good bait, bad bait, clueless comments....the "guy" that brings 3 tackle boxes, 4 trollers, 6 other set-ups at $700 a pop, uses "designer" hooks but can't tie a decent knot.....and then resolves to share his two pesos (the old ones) about his sub-par experience.....thankfully gone too in due time! Late jump in on my behalf; hard to resist

Name calling are you still in grade school. I guess it shows what kind of a person you are. I have the right to feel the way I do and will not call you names would go to your level.

Fred is an outstanding person with family values with none above him. If a person is lucky enough to be his friend (along with his beautiful wife) One would be considered a lucky person. The kids teachers love to have him around because he is so animated and fun the kids have memorable field trips because of his presence. . . . and he is allowed at my home around my children anytime!
Fred says it like it is, takes no shit off no one and really doesn't care what the fuck you think. . . . a couple names here and there. . . quit fucking whining. Ok fine you have standard of some rich fuck that cant run his own boat. . . whatever.
At a guess I would say his wife could out fish you on a bad day. . . so whatever level you live on that you cannot come to the level where I live with my friends at. Perhaps my good man you should shut the fuck up and find a nice prissy site to post your opinions and wonderful reports of the wonderful trip you go on. . . .

By the way, the fish posted on his page are real and not computer graphics. . . . The man is the real deal. . . you can see his face and chase him down if there is a real problem with the name calling. . . . Oh thats right you live at a different Level. . . My Bad!

Oh BTW Conrad. . . awesome post on the Ranger 85. . . I love the boat and crew myself. . . Pics are nice for us that have to work and need there fish porn!!

Xlint post . . . well cept for the hijack lol

Really only 3 posts..... Must be a someone from another boat, or you must be new. If you are whining about having to wait during a hot bite. Go fish the seeker. You'll have a great time. They will have all the deckhands at your service, because you'll be the only one hooked up. I would love to have my limits early and be home early....

Please let us know what trips you plan to fish. So we know what trips to cross off. As usual Fred you are right on with your comments about ppl like this one. Again look @ how many posts he has....that should tell you something.

Even on our LR trips bait isn't always all that Great but we have the time to make baits, like I said before you fishing in So cal and we even have live bait other fisheries don't have that luxury Now stop fucking crying and get back on the water

who the fuck wants a gaff hole in a 10-15# tuna? you are going to lose 10% of prime loin that way.
folks whining about having to tag their OWN fish in a WFO bite? OMG. I guess the deckie wasn't their to bait your hook, too?
running out of bait AFTER LIMITS HAVE BEEN FILLED. WTF is up with THAT?
whats next? no cock hiding in your burrito especial?

You really mishandled yourself Richard 1025fish. You decided from the start to shit on a group of people you do not even know. Taking it to the internet without first contacting the boat owner, landing and having a good healthy conversation or sending a letter about your concerns was the first mistake, second was going on a fishing trip with a friend who has much different standards than you. You will never know how easily this could have been handled without stirring the pot like you did. My prediction is your first 3 post are your last 3 post. As for Fred, he is an outstanding man, he protects his family and friends and I am damn glad I have the privilege to be part of his family of friends.
