42 days or six weeks before we load our gear for our 16 day fishing adventure. I know a few of you Bloody decks guys that are waiting to get on the water to relax and fish for 16 days and leave the crazy times behind us. I am so bored sitting at home that April is something to look forward to. Most years I can get out in Feb. but not a single boat had a 14-18 day trip so I sit here waiting. I have been doing some retail therapy buying a couple of new reels and a new rod to add to my arsenal for this upcoming trip. This trip will push me over the 700+ days fishing Long Range out of San Diego. It all started on the Big Game 90 back in the 90's fishing with Captain Mike on 5 day trips. I really enjoy the camaraderie on the 15-18 day trips these days.

Looking forward to meeting and fishing with you Soda. My last trip was December 2017, so I'm starting to bounce off the walls with anticipation to get back out there.

I thought the RP had an 18 day in February? Was it changed? I I thought it was a John Collins trip

Hey soda I leave on the Royal Polaris March 15th for 18 days, if I remember right you were on this trip but the covid 19 cancelled that trip in 2020, this year everything is looking good I'll try to save you some fish for that custom blue makaira you bought:-).
On this trip will probably fish blue fin last couple of days when coming back I like that idea...Paul
