Just experimenting with posting pictures. I don't have a lot of saltwater pictures but these were from my 2013 fall trip aboard The Searcher. Great boat, and I'll be back on it for 7 days starting October 12th this year.

This frog fish was trying to hide out in the East Pacific last year and deserves some recognition along with his pal the stone fish
It was long range as these fish live in Costa Rica.

Yankee Capts
Got a few questions about my pics not being west coast long range .



That boat is the Yankee Capts out of key west Florida . The trip is 4 days they have 2,3,4,5 day trips. Has chef just like you guys but on a much smaller scale .. there are a few of us on this site who go on this boat as this is to my knowledge the closest thing to a Cali long range boat on the east coast.

Here’s a link to a show done on the boat .




140 miles northwest into the GOM from key west . We were fishing 200- 400 for for primarily multiple snappper species, multi grouper species dolphin and Blackfin Tuna. Occasional yellowfin. We often catch wahoo as well.

Here's one from a 14 day a few years ago on the RR3. After dropping off all but 3 guests and Andy in Cabo, we were supposed to head home with no stops as we were behind on time. Lures went out anyway, and the remaining crew and us had wide open Wahoo. Got bit on almost every cast, and at one point everybody was on a fish with nobody to gaff. I'll always remember the faces of the folks who flew home when we got to the docks, as only a few 'hoo had been caught on the trip.

Nov 2005 Shogun

283 & 298 back to back bites. On a fly line sardine and a greenie. Possible record brace for back to back bites into SD. 298 was the old Shogun boat yft record that got beat shortly after. Was handed the first Shogun 300# patch ever but I handed it back since the scale read 298. No doubt a 3 when it hit the deck. I want the patch back. Some boats had boat scales at that time :D

283. Toughest fish I have ever encountered. Just radical

298 kicked its fkn ass in under 30 min. The 283 was much stronger

The Atoll looks like a donut on radar. Big lagoon in the center. I think its more water then sand and rock

Very long sickles. Loaner fish or living in a small pack for awhile. Sickles were not rubbing on other tunas. Which shortens the sickles in big tight schools. Plus genetics as some naturally have longer sickles then others
