I done a few long range trip in the past years I alway done limited load trips so I get my own stateroom .. I’m looking for a boat that fishes for those BLUEFIN TUNA that does anywhere from 1.5-3 days trip or possibly longer that just has bunks to sleep and doesn’t take to many people Possibly something like the tomahawk???? Thanks frank

Tomahawk is a good option, so is Condor, NLA, just to name a few. Lots of boats in this category.

I have had great experiences with both New Lo-An and Tomahawk for BFT. Very good value, great crews, and excellent hard-charging captains. No State Rooms; both boats have large shared bunk rooms. Great vibe on both boats.

    I would look into the SOA they have some REAL Limited Loads of 14 passengers, A little pricey ($780), But your chances of not tangling other fish is better than 30 people on the other smaller boats. SOA is 88'x25'. 14 people can all fish the stern at the same time. If I was in your shoes, I'd be all over it, just like stink on shit, If I was planning a trip to get on. Not to mention killer food and staterooms and a well kept up boat.

    Surprised to see openings on the Vagabond. They’re running a limited load season with 22 anglers. If I were going to book a 3 day, I’d be on the phone with them.

    It would be a shorter list to give the boats to avoid, all the boats given so far do a great job.

    Listening to “let’s talk hook up” podcast. Art Taylor of the Searcher said they had openings next week for a 3 day with 17 passengers. It still had openings. I think they added it to their schedule last week.
