Oh sheet! Join us on our trip? The next 8 day on the Rooster....I think we had a 1 or 2 spots open?

More disturbing.... In this awesome year how can trips not be selling enough to leave the dock? Hope there is not some other reason this trip is not sailing......

Theres fish up here in our zone, people dont want to jump on a 8 day and fish local waters would be my guess.

That's a shame. Sorry they're not going, although I understand them not running if they don't have enough anglers to meet expenses. It amazes me that one of the best boats in the fleet cancels for lack of anglers during what likely will be one of the better times of the summer to fish.

    The Shogun on a 5-day and the AA on a 8-day are both coming home tomorrow. 5/30. What I hear is the people on the Shogun had more fishing time and more and larger fish. A lot like last year, but 2 months early.

    Perhaps the lack of being able to keep bluefin in Mexican waters might have something to do with it. I don't know.

    Could be the fishing close to home is getting so good that guys don't want to spend the extra cash on multiple day trips when they could fish close to home.

    Or it could be issues with people that weren't prepared for the changes with passport requirements.

    Probably all of the above . My bet is you will see the Rooster do a couple 3 days trips in replacement of this 8 day trip.

    An 8-day in September might be a better bet for you anyway... larger YFT and better time frame for the Hoo... nothing is for certain in the LR fishing world, you pay your money and take your chances and hope for the best!

    I've had (3) 16day trips on the Q105 cancel on me over (2) YEARS, I STOPPED BOOKING THE (Q). It can be irritating at the last minute to be cancelled only to rebook and have it happen again. I was lucky to get all of my money back...Paul

    Surely the RR111 will take care of you regarding your deposit. There a number of boats with trips that fit your stated time window but not many spots left... Rp, Shogun, Royal Star and of course my Favorite the Excel.. Just rebound and go book a trip with another boat. You will have a great time regardless.

    It may not be such a bad thing that they cancelled the trip. When fishing is good locally it doesn't make much sense to run 3 or 4 hundred miles south only to have poor fishing. I went on an 8 day last Oct and we ran all the way to Mag bay for almost nothing. We didn't find any decent fishing until the 6th or 7th day when we were back in local waters. People on 2 and 3 day trips did better than we did for a lot less money and a lot less wasted travel time. I would just take the money that you were going to spend on the trip and book a couple of 2.5 or 3.5 day local trips. You will probably get more fishing time and catch more fish than you would have on the 8 day trip. I'll bet that if you check with the RRIII you will find that they schedule a couple of 2 or 3 day trips in place of the 8 day. They may even give you a break on the price.

    Actually I went through the schedules of Intrepid,Indy,RP,Shogun Angler and Royal Star of the boats quickly and found the boats with open trips that matched his time window. Not an owner at fishermans landing and really I want all the boats to do well!

    The Intrepid has only 1 opening on a 5 day trip…IMO big difference between a 5 day and 8 day….

    thanks for all the replies, I really do appreciate the concern. I know it will work out. I managed to get in a total of 52 days last year on trips between 2 and 10 days. I'm hoping to get in as much this year.
