Miss the boat. Did my first 10 dayers on there in 1998, bought the trip from someone on Allcoast who did website work for the Q. Captain Brian Simms, Armando, Tommy, Cal. We went first to Alijos rocks and fished YFT. Using a Tiburon framed TLD 20II on a Calstar 765XL. Everyone back then was saying the 765XL was the perfect 40lbs rod and maybe 40lbs for YT. Hooked into a 120 lbs YFT and got my ass worked. I didn't know how to use the rail and fought the fish stand up. After about 30 minutes, Capt Brian asks me if my back was gone. Long story short, He taught me to use the rail and helped me finish the JP fish off. Then we went to the ridge and we came across a football field of dorados and under the dorados were wahoo. I've never seen the ocean turn green and other colors of the Dorado. I got my first two wahoos on the trip on bombs. Back then, Brian wanted everyone to fish bomb only as the wahoo would swallow it whole and have a better hookup ratio. During the seminar, throw the bomb out and let it sink to a count of 30 and wind as fast as you can. Then we went to the coast and fished for YT and we were all using 40lbs and then those lines would snap like twigs. We hit a school of broom tail groups and some were like 100 lbs+. We all switched to the heavier lines and I got one about 50 lbs. Best tasting fish ever. Finished up the trip fishing for sand bass and I was unhooking my own fish and Captain Brian comes over and tells me that this isn't a half day boat and unhooks my fish. Talk about LR style fishing. I fish the Q and meet my good friends there like Jeff Liu, Alan, Bryce and some others. I fished the boat until it had issues and was listing to one side at docks. I remember seeing the Q that way and it was a very sad day. JL and I moved to the Shogun and fished her until Norm and Bruce left and then we fished the Intrepid the first year and then we moved to the Indy. The Q got me hooked on this LR fishing.
