    Hit desperation reef with 2 scoops of lively dines for no love on the yellowtails and small size BFT.
    But we were rewarded later with a another jumbo for my boat this year.
    Surge, our designated anglers kills it in 50 minutes. Not bad for his first time wrangling a cow bft
    Ride back was brutal, 70 miles of crappy weather. Even on Everglades, not nice, was only able to do 28knt

    Only 28 knots in a Everglade 290 through the chop after catching a toad bluefin. Man, that's a tough pill to swallow. You got it rough. My heart bleeds kool-aid for you. What flavor do you want? :D

    Beautiful fish, congrats!

    usually we do 35-38 knot back home... Those Fucken EAST coast guy have it good... pretty soon the west coast is gonna be full of 3 outboard center console...
    My everglade 290 in Florida is consider a little boat, always hilarious when I call everglade for technical advice and the owner keeps referring to " Oh yeah, you have the little 290 pilot boat".

    The west coast scene is changing, but I doubt it's going to be full of $500,000 center consoles any time soon. People here with expensive boats prefer boats they can sleep on with the family when out at the islands. Fast center consoles that go out and back in an hour aren't going to be popular here as long as the standard fishing we do is island fishing.

    We don't have the equivalent of canyon runs, for example, where you're going out 70 miles to a location with no protection and can't run to the islands in case the weather gets bad. They also have a problem on the east coast where the weather can come up suddenly and you need to run fast, while here, the chances are, you're going to see it coming.

    But the biggest problem with large fast center consoles in our area is the temperature. Out in Florida, they get all year 90 degree and 80 degree water, and need the wind in their face to cool down. Here, we don't like the wind as soon as it gets down to about 65. Much less any water.

    Well said....Best day of my life was going from an open console 40 mph Whaler to an enclosed cabin Parker that does 28 mph in 4' chop while staying warm and dry!.....any faster and your lower back pays dearly in our afternoon wind and swells....now, if I can just catch one of Vue's tuna before he catches them all......

    I want one. How much fuel do you consume for 140 mile R/T in that boat?

    It bit the yummy so yes it was a giant hook. We didn't try to fish the bait at all once we were in trolling mode.
