    Last time I flew ...NO ICE, although the AO coolers claim to be leakproof

    I too am considering a trip next year to PV. Fished the Intrepid and knocked that off my dream list, this is my second dream trip. Now a little uncertain on how I should go about it. This thread was very informative and will NOT change the fact that I will do my dream cow trip. But it will insure that I do ALL the homework before I choose an operator. Up until this thread the new Maximus had a lock on my business. Now I will consider all options. Thanks for the useful information (hidden amount the rants)

    Just a season question... if you have no work/vacation/schedule constraints at all, what month would you fish for best chance at a cow?

    The cow population is resident year round. So it's really a matter of avoiding hurricane season. I would consider Halloween through Fred Hall to be peak season in PV. However, in past years some of the boats have come north around April to prepare for the summer season in SD.

    it's frozen solid. The AO coolers are leakproof, except a bit thru the zipper if you turn it over........which IS GONNA HAPPEN if you check it.........which is why the airlines don't allow ice.

    As stated, the AO 36 can size is perfect for 50#. I'll be bringing home 2. :D

    Not sure I like " a little through the zipper" part, is the polar bear a better choice? they both seem to have similar ratings .

    I Took the 24 AO Back East on Vacation last spring and
    I Packed it in My Luggage Bag on the way their
    and I used it to Bring Back like 35 Lb. of Pepper Stakes
    and Beef and Burger Patties , and I Put ice Cubes
    in Two Zip lock Bags and set it on top of the Meat , and I
    Carried it on and just kept it Upright in the Upper Storage with No
    Problem. it worked Great.

    Some Airlines will now let you take dry ice in checked baggage. It's a pain in the ass. You can take no more than 10lbs and they will weight it seperately. You need to fill out a hazardous material form. Your ice chest is handled like an explosive device. Your bag goes in a seperate area down with the luggage.

    The fish is frozen and no need for ice. It stays frozen for 2 days in a AO cooler. No need for dry ice.. geez guys...

    Really? I thought that would have been late. I've only fished PV once - with "the captain who shall not be named", but it was in April and all we got was a 45lb YFT on the kite at El Banco. Do others concur on March or April?

    I like December as it seems to be more fish, less size...

    I couldn't agree more. All of us that fish in this price range know the costs...it's part of the deal if not, go fish a 1/2 day. Point here is disclosure.

    Mike, I appreciate that response. I fished with you and John last year and had a blast. I thought my experience was one off, this string is very revealing.
