Every year the Red Rooster is the last boat going down to the lower zone fishing for Tuna and Wahoo as the summer is just around the corner. The next long trip down to the lower zone what happen until Oct. I have been on the June Heat a few times. Always a great group to share the rail with. With Capt. Andy Cates at the helm and Leo from Accurate reels having loaner reels with matching Cal-Star and Seeker rods to check out. So chime in if your on this trip.... if your not on this trip chime in anyways...we always like words of encouragement.

I like this group to fish with... Also the crew is fresh off of boat work and raring to go. The boat is in pristine condition and we get first crack at the improvements that Andy and the crew have made to the boat. Going down and having the place to ourselves has advantages too. Some trips are corrosive with sharks, just one angle of fishing that you need to overcome. Mainly this is at Clarion, but the really big ones are caught there too and when the big ones show, the sharks let up. Two trips I had 4 cows and two more with 2 supers along with loads of sub cows. Some trips are epic wahoo that Andy says No Mas to the skinnies. This trip is the perfect storm.

I'm really looking forward to the trip. I'm starting my prep now. I tell myself,,,,,,"START A LIST!!!!" After all these years I still don't have all the things I need to take locked firmly in my mind.
I'll say this, there's nothing like a 15 day fishing trip, with a great bunch of skilled people, to help you really appreciate the "art" of fishing!
I'm READY!

Hey Richard, That's exactly what I'm always afraid of, that I will bring the whole garage. Will be great to fish with you again, hope some of your talent wears off on me. And yes, if you forget anything (or if I do) we can definitely work it out.

Joe I think it's the other way around, your talent and expertise helps me and the others. Looking forward to sharing the rail with you as always. Will miss Ralfa.

Time to start packing. Just finished shopping for the crew. Soda pop packed.... inventory of hooks and top shots finished up. Its all coming together. It will be great to fish the bird again with a top notch Capt. and crew. Departing my home next Friday at 6AM..... with Donna.... first stop will be Squdico for some last minute shopping and have them put new line on my Wahoo reels. This trip is always a great time out on the water. I am excited to share the rail with you all once again.

I am also packed, tackle box and clothing. Reels have been blue-printed, hooks have been sharpened, and all leaders made. I am totally ready to get on the water again with the best captain and crew, and of course Sheffy who puts chocolate candy on my pillow at night.

I'm through with fishing gear prep. Just remade about 10 bombs that were decimated last year. New hooks, swivels, spinner blades and mylar paper. Wahoo Bob Cherry gave me a jig bucket so I've put all of my bombs into that. Didn't realize I had so many! Looking forward to spending some time at the rail with everyone and having a good trip.
NO SHARKS ALLOWED!

Sharks? Bill remember you trying to get away from them in the skiff. They liked you and followed. Keep our fingers crossed, that they aren't hungry.
