Thought I'd chime in... Fish regularly on the voyager. great boat. They limit the number of spots on the boat to the number of available bunks. The crew really is top notch. I'd recommend the 50W and 7.5' rod. You won't be holding your rod all night and these boat have highrails so you'll want something long so you can rail the rod to fight the fish. Note you cannot fish straight braid for bait. Jigging works! Definitely try that through the night, especially when the captain marks fish and calls out the depth. I've got most my fish between 100-200'. On the 30 hours trips, you'll sail out at dawn and make it to the canyon in the early afternoon. You'll spend a few hours steaming between lobster pots for mahi so dont forget the spinning gear to cast out for them! in the evening, they'll anchor up and begin to chunk for tuna, which you'll do through the night before heading in in the late morning. Have a great trip and good luck!
