It’s all about the weather first , the banks could be brutal over 13 knots, secure a good weather, then find a 1.5+ trip .
SA80 is an awesome boat which is run by a classy family. It’s my favorite beside Pacific Islander.

    The only time I wud have is the 1.5 day spot… trying to do most time in water possible.. is it fishy good chance of big bft?
    1st, New Lo Ann, 2nd Aztec, 3rd Excalibur, 4th Pacific Islander and what ever boats in between and the SA80 the last choice. There reason why the boats prices are Cheap. Food Quality and most important they conserve fuel and usually don't run far. Look at their counts past two weeks, They were pretty much fishing those YFT 40 miles south. Don't get me wrong, The SA80 is a very nice boat but the operation sucks.

    I’ll second New LoAn and Aztec. I’ve never had a bad experience with Markus and Greg. Just like there’s a reason why prices are cheap. There’s a reason why those two boats fill FAST.

    I’d agree to grab a seat where you can and fast, cause everyone else on Tomahawk that got cancelled likely are trying to find a new spot as well.

    Also there's reason why some boats still have room up to a day before trips, That should tell you something about the Operation!!!!!

    I like the excalibur. Some of the crew members are pretty salty but the captain works his ass off trying to put you on fish. They will burn the fuel to get where you need to go. Food was actually pretty good too and they have staterooms and double wide bunks.

    I agree and don't understand why people bash this boat.Every boat in the fleet has bad trips fishing.I think most that bash them haven't even fished the boat they bash.

    Next time you decide to book that many small trips,, I'd consider a 5+ day trip. I would have found a LR boat headed to Guadalupe or 8+ day and hit Alijos/the Ridge.

    If that Aztec trip is the UC OCT 6-10. I’m on it with you. I really hope weather is good. Forecast is far out but looks on the windy side. I’m hoping everything can line up in our favor
