Hi All,

Hope everyone is having a great time fishing! I thought you all would like to see this video. unfortunately we had to Medevac a passenger last Friday from Eclipse. The USCG apparantly "Go Pro'd" and put on YouTube the very next day. Patient was taken to UCSD and released later that evening- he is 35 and was complaining of chest tightness on the left side. Capt Richie had to go 18 miles back towards the beach, then 20 miles back to the fishing grounds. He got on a kelp and had 70 mixed BFT, YFT and Dorado for his trip. i couldn't be prouder of my crew and the way this was handled. They were composed, calm and all business. And they still managed to salvage their 1.5 day trip!!!
Check out the Video here:

Take care everyone!
Tight Lines and Sharp Hooks,
Capt Mark

Wow cool video. I hope the guy is ok. Seems like being released the next day may have been a false alarm. I wonder what the bill is to be medevacked ouch...

Hey Mark,

Thanks again to your crew. We really appreciate the outstanding effort they did to take care of Thomas. You guys really are one of the best in the fleet.

Can't wait to get out there again with you guys.

I was just on the Eclipse for the first time 2 weeks ago. I have been bragging about the captain and crew to everyone. They are top notch!

always had good vibe and success on this boat back when it was the Cat Special and Renegade... haven't had the opportunity to fish the boat yet under the Eclipse but will definitely in the future...

Pretty cool...I am curious as to why they made the transfer while "under way" as opposed to stopping the boat. Do you know Mark???
