    YES you bet, 2 big RSW holds and the slammer too. Fish in gunnys
    used to bleed them on that stop, then tag & put down in RSW holds. FYI.

    PS you can't have man hole size fish hold covers OPEN with people
    running to the bait tank and bagging fish=same area on a stop.....LOL LOL

    I was fishing with Scotty a long time ago on a 46' Hatteras (Trade Off) that he used to run - we were in a full-speed YFT stop & had the fish hold cover removed - one of the passengers wound up not seeing it and messed his leg up bad - removed most of the skin from his shin.

    Yeah, I was puzzled by the gunny sacks too on a boat with RSW. But there is method to the madness -- instead of letting the fish bleed out in a plastic trash can or metal kill box in the sun before dropping them into the RSW hold, as is the norm on most boats, putting them into wet gunny sacks actually helps keep the fish cooler while absorbing some of the blood. Works good, the fish turn out as good as on any boat in the fleet. CONDOR is a class act.

    Sorry NO....her family owns a ranch in Arizona with 800 head of cattle.
    You'd be in line with her prized 4H 2900lb Heifer she's raised and leads
    around on a bridle! LOL She has to start high school again tomorrow
    so this was her last 3 days of Freedom. PS she also runs the 800M
    so you'd never catch her anyway!!! LOL LOL Great people to fish with.

    Yep to die for. These paddies are really loaded up now. Unlike our
    full moon trip a couple weeks ago, almost every one had fish on them. LOL

    THAT, was a trip to behold. 12 souls on her. Awesome.
    For those unfamiliar with the boat, please ck out other boats.
    When I get to go this year, I only need 11 others on the boat. Being the selfish bastard I am.
    But then how would you prefer it? 32 or 12 total? o_O:-)
    Great report.

    YES Kevin is tall guy in blue shirt, then later in white long sleeve with JP Yellow with Rob.
    He pitched for Expos, Rangers, Phillies, Dodgers and Angels. 1983-1997. Fun to fish with.
    * I haven't booked any other trips yet. Waiting to have cataract surgery next up. LOL
