Aaron is a great guy. I also fished with him on a crazy WFO Albacore trip on the Legend. That was a few years ago. He's been working on the Royal Polaris as well as running the Legend since then. Very capable, customer service oriented guy. Best of luck to him with his new responsibilities. I'm sure he'll do well.

Does this mean Norm is no longer running the boat? I thought he was a partial owner.

The letter from the office says Norm will run select trips. He is still a partial owner.

i thought Bruce was the one leaving to run his new boat not Norm?
if what above is correct, then Aaron and Bruce will be at the helm?

Bruce is just now finishing up his last trip. As you probably know, Bruce is now the owner of the old Samurai, now, as originally named, again called the Fortune. http://www.fishermanslanding.com/pages/Fortune.php

By the time Shogun starts running again, Aaron should be well up to speed on the boat. His second ticket is announced as Cole, also recently a crew member on RP. I thought Norm was all done. I got a mailing from the office but tossed it as it looked to me like just prnted schedules. I don't keep those, even for boats that I fish, as my wife has enough clutter as it is. ;)

Yeah, I got the mailing also and Norm "may run selective trips" during the year and is still part owner, while Bruce is now owner/operator of the charter boat "Fortune". I have fished with both these skilled captains and it was a pleasure to be sure and I for one, wish them nothing but the very best in whatever they do! Aaron Barnhill and Cole Byron both have worked on the RP and will be taking over the majority of the trips on the Shogun. I have not had the privilege of fishing with either of the gents, but I'm sure they are top-notch and will fill in just fine. Good luck and tight lines to them all!

I have fished with Aaron on the RP, both as Captain and Deckhand. He's great. He wants you to get on fish and won't take you for a boat ride. I would go fishing with him again without any reservations about his abilities. Last I heard (on this board) was that Cole also from the RP was coming back to be the 2nd. He's good too!

Aaron and Cole are both former students of mine when they were in high school. I have fished with both since and am proud to see the way they have taken charge.
