    I think maybe you'd like to get your facts straight, before posting about the Excel staying local for the 5 days.

    I would pick the boat that doesn't serve a cookie tray or the previous nights desert as a mid morning or afternoon snack. Whichever boat puts out the biggest veggie platter would be a no brainer for my selection. When as the years go by and no improvements in the quality of the snacks is discerned other than sugary cake items, I give my money to the dive boat where international food service is generally more palatable and less gas is created. Seriously guys what's up with some of the crap they pass off as snacks on LR boats?

    If you want a real quality long range boat then go on the Independence or the American Angler. Just my opinion.

    I shouldn't have said they suck because they don't. All the long range boats are amazing and we should all be so grateful that we can go on trips on these boats.

    Deciding against a boat because they fished local is ridiculous. Virtually every long range boat fished CA waters last year. They all will go where they think they have the best chance to catch fish. The way fishing was last year, and with certain island closures this year, every trip has a chance to stay in SoCal waters. Just consider it an ulta limited load on a high quality boat. I personally never question where a boat fishes. The captains have more knowledge, experience, and up to date information than I ever will.

    The Intrepid just got back from fishing the Channel Islands on a 4 day trip. Guess you better not go on that boat either. Lmao

    Freaking tough job being a Captain. I had a really nice dinner conversation with a doctor one night. It was after a super slow day when we killed 'em the day before. So one day the skipper was the best there ever was and the next day we couldn't sniff a bite. My doctor tablemate lamented....."my job has pressure, but I don't think I'm cut out to be Captain on a long range boat."

    What are we talking about?

    Very confusing.

    So many things I have never considered.

    For me it's a great trip if I get on the boat.

    If we catch some fish. Laugh our asses off and get home in one piece - sign me up for next year.

    And the year after.

    And two years later and on and on.

    Bill,

    That would be like the boat running out of fuel.

    Not gonna happen with the crew I fish with.

    and if it was statistically possible, there's probably less than a 0% chance of that ever happening.

    Garry,
    With the new inventory management software and the purchasing protocols put in place, you are correct its zero percent chance of happening.

    You said they fished local for the 5 days, but their web site said they were down south also. You go where the fish are,
    When you can't go to Cedros/Benitos your options are thin at this time of year.
    But I do understand your point.

    I pay to get the on a boat take me wherever
    Get my line in the water
    Hangout and drink beer with cool peeps
    Shoot the shit
    And maybe hang something on my overly decorated rod
    Exit the boat in the end and happy I got to be on the water

    Thank you. I shouldn't judge the excel like that and I wish I didn't say what I did.
