I too am doing a 5 day'r, on the Shogun, 12/26/14. Moon is great for this trip. Should be good. Did a 7 day'r, on the Excel right before x-mas last year, Limits of football size yft, 15 to 30lb yt, lots of nice size lings, a halibut and 60lb black sea bass. Shogun caught albies to 50lbs, and saw lots of BIG bft, but couldn't get them to bite. You just never know WHAT you will run into that time of year.

Fished those dates last year for a five day on the Rooster. We had a good time. Yellows and bottom grabbers, but with this warm water maybe some tuna will still be available offshore.

I have not fished the RP but have fished the Shogun 14 or 15 times. I like boat, Aaron and the crew. we fished BFT day 2 last year and saw fish that would not bite except for 2 albacore. mine weighed 51 lbs

Really? Is that all you have is a fish count? Big deal. It's just an ownership thing for me.
I met some really nice people on that trip. We had some great times! A new "kid"

Dec 2012 Dec 26 Shogun trip 375 yellowtail for 20 anglers. How many did the Rooster have?

I'm with Steve K, Rooster. It was a great trip had a lot fun with the other folks on the boat, but you can't go wrong with any of the boat that make this run.
