Yipeeeee! I just signed up for the first 8 day trip on the American Angler. I got the last spot. They said I would have to bunk up with 2 other guys in a 3 bedroom. How is that going to be?

Not that I really care too much....causing I am going FISHING!:hali_ruahahaha:

Who else is on this trip? Roll call!

It works out fine just board asap and get the middle bunk. If my dad 6'2" 220, my bro 6' 350, and one other at 6'4" 220 can make it work on a ten day I'm sure you will be fine. There are plenty of places to hang other than your room while traveling. I sure wish I could be going on that trip, good luck and you guys will kill them.

Hey Dr. Corey,
Yeah probably out for the Intrepid this year...but ya never know....I still needed to catch a few lessons from you. You were hands down the Jig fisherman of the trip on our trip last year. Not something I like to admit.....lightly. Good luck on your trip...our paths will cross again I am sure!

Do you have a guess as to what type of fish you will be catching?
My expectations for this trip would be many yellowtail....a shot at Yellowfin Tuna up to 100#'s...maybe albacore...maybe bluefin....if we hit Alijos I would really hope for a Sheephead (kidding) and a Popeye Catalufa. But above all I expect to catch a good time...meet fellow LR addicts....never think about my cube...drink some good wine....and hear some really good stories! :rofl:

Count me in too Dave - look forward to mtg you & all the rest. 3 in a 3 man rm. isn't so bad for an 8 day - did a 3 in 3 on a 10 day once & survived just fine. Have always found the A/A operation on top of their game - prolly 10 to 12 trips on her by now - 1st trip in mid 80's when she was fresh off the skids & last one about 2001 so it's been a while & am anxious for another go. Noticed 3 other boats on 7 to 8 dayers in same time frame (two leave day or two before us - one on same day & a 15 dayer that might also prospect the stones before we get a whack (if they end up in the game plan at all). With all that coverage we might be saved a long excursion for naught. We'll have a great time regardless. Hope the parking is squared away by then. See ya at the dock.

Dave,

I am on the 8-day Catchy trip following your trip, so we hope that you guys are kind enough to leave us a few fishes to slay! 3 in a 3 person stateroom is not bad, although I like to have the 3rd bunk empty to stow all my extra gear, dirty clothes and beverages. Makes things a little nicer not to have everything crammed together. I'm sure your going to have a BLAST! Can't wait for my trip! :)

P.S. I think you have posted the wrong return date....You'll be returning on the 7th not the 5th.

HA HA...Your right. We come back on the 7th. Trying to rip my own self off by 2 days. We'll try to make the reports interesting so that you have a hard time sleeping the week prior! :idiot:

Dave, Lew: Go get 'em! I'm back out on that 7 day with Jim Hall and the rest of the gang. Got a roommate all lined up. Jim and Mark across the hall from me and Joe. Let the gin flow! Really looking forward to fishing with the Angler crew again. It's been too long, and I miss those guys.

Skipped it last year. Went on that damned 15 day. Quality problem, there.;)

That sucks pete, for me of course. Was looking forward to chatting with you about economy and healthcare. Take a look at the Roberts 9 day on the Polaris supreme in late august. Those wahoo are fun as he'll to catch, Would love to share the rail with you on that one.

On the Catchy 8-day trip last year we caught a 104 lb. yellowfin tuna and a ton of 40-60 lbers also, 2 yellertails over 70 lbs. and another yeller of over 65 lbs. (look at the AA website for the June 12 wrap-up report), plus some halibuts and other assorted species. It was a fantastic trip and I was one of the lucky ones to land the 1st albacore tunas for the AA last season. Like I said, I hope you slay them, but also leave the big units for us to tangle with! :urno1:
