    Went fishing out of 22nd St.Landing On the fortune on 12-03-2018 Monday night on a one and 1/2 day trip and to me this was an unknown boat ,what a pleasure to fish on this 65 foot by 19 foot boat. Took out 18 anglers out to the Cortez and it’s an amazing little boat ,great captain good crew and limits for 18 passengers ++++. grade of fish was small in the morning 20 to 30 pounders and pretty good size in the evening right at sundown we got into the 40 to 70 pound fish. Sorry I did take pictures. Great bunch of folks.

    If Bruce was the Captain, you were in the presence of greatness.

    Bruce has always been great since the days on the Shogun in the 90s!!! I highly recommend the Fortune whether its San Clemente Island or offshore.

    Stellar and in December! Will it end :) Action from sun up and a sun downer bigger units to finish. Cortes has a special feeling when out there. Nice score

    He started out on the RP & Royal Star 2nd ticket and was captain/worked the shogun for many years. Fish the fortune. Spent many days fishing with the dude. If I was up there it would be a go to boat. When targeting what I feel like going for. Calis party boat fleet is bad ass.

    Bob and Bruce are cool, but the little golden cat is the source of all the Fortune!

    Haha... glad you had a great trip!

    Bruce is one of the coolest dudes you could ever fish with. Had a lot of trips with him on the Shogun.
