    Hey guys Im itching to get back on the ocean again, I was thinking I may be able to make the trip on the royal Polaris the day after xmas. It says yellowtail and rock fish fishing. Which sounds good to me anyone ever been on this trip, I would like to catch a good number of fish don't really care if there huge or anything just something to keep me busy. Any thoughts?

    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.

    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"

    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.
