    Old Glory Overnight 9/24/13 [​IMG]
    My first time on the Old Glory
    The people running the boat is the best part,
    the captain and crew are just amazing,
    and the boat is big roomy, plenty of room in the galley,
    great bunks with air conditioner,
    man, I loved the boat so much I will be a regular,
    hope to see you there one of these days.

    Now to the fishing.
    The plan these days is to look for kelp
    and fish the spawning yellowtail
    And hoping to find pelagic tuna,
    dorado or any of them traveling fish.
    [​IMG]
    And we got limits of yellow tail.
    They didn't disappoint, lean mean,
    warriors of the sea.
    [​IMG]
    I have plenty of this in my freezer
    So I was hopping to catch a blue fin tuna, before they move away.
    I lost a few in my last trip, so I was praying for one,
    dorado came to play had a big one for a while,
    but lost it in a spider web tangle, as we had multiple hook ups,
    and they cross crossed lines,
    I lost mine, of well, it's moo moo fishing,
    at least my buddy Walt hooked and landed 2 nice ones,
    I fished the iron, most people was on live bait, so I switched back and forth to keep things entertaining, and rest the old elbow,
    we had fun stuffing yellow tail in my buddy Jaime 's sac, while be was sleeping, lol
    [​IMG]
    he could not believe his eyes when he woke up and saw his bag stuffed to the limit, we played dumb, and called him the hot stick.
    Finally at the end we found blue fin, lost of them were lost on small line, I had 30# 4/0 hook, twice the Palomar knot. Blackwater flouorocarbon and was lucky to land one, finally lol
    [​IMG]
    Great times, great weather, this trip it was a blessing, no doubt
    Till next wave.

    The surface iron on Penn squall 15.
    With 50# suffix 832 braid, Terramar 8 ft rod, used a tady 45 and a tady BA I also for 45° jigging tied a 5 inch swimbait on 1 oz jig head, it was fun, set the magnet at 3/4'and you'll have zero bird nest on the surface iron.

    eDDie calls asking if I want to tag along with him and his buddy Jamie on an overnighter and
    do some Tuna Hunting. Trip on. Within 15 hours I go from a couch potato to an adrenaline infused
    angler. We get on the Old Glory While not as enthusiastic as FishTaco I like the boat. And won't
    hesitate going on her again. As is the norm these days the Yellow Tail infested waters off the west
    coast continues to produce huge catches. As hot as the bite was there were still anglers, mostly
    rod renters, that were getting skunked. After observing these individuals that are not catching it
    was apparent that they all had one thing in common. FishTaco and I had discussed this problem earlier
    and eDDie nailed it. The Skunk'ies cannot get their sardine more then 10 ft. away from the boat.
    Then on top of that they will have 10 yards of line puddled right off the rail on top of their bait.
    The deck hands would try and help them out but without not a lot of success. So FishTaco and I along
    with many others on the boat
    would hand off a bender so these guy/girls could get their limits. It really gets crazy when you do a hand
    off to a complete newbie, it's like handing them a lightning rod. The women especially,,,, all you hear are
    oooooh's and ahhhhhhas and that "Thing" is pulling too hard. Quite entertaining actually. :) If you want to
    get some extra enjoyment after catching a Bazillion Rat YT's hand off a hot stick to one of the less
    fortunate and kick back and enjoy.

    Had a deep drop rig. A 40 Sealine with a line counter with an 8 oz torpedo. 50 spectra
    to 50 fluoro. During my last 2 trips
    this rig carries a bo-hunk sardine down to where ever the Captn. says the BF are holding.
    usually 60 to 200 foot down. To date
    no luck yet but will keep at it until the season ends. Some day,,,,,maybe just maybe.

    Personally caught 2 BF, 2 Dorado one of which was runner up for the jackpot, and 2 Bazillion Yellow Tails.

    Most used rig: 8'10" Rainshadow 1087, 15-25 lb. rated, moderate action.
    Penn Squall 15 with 400 yds of Sufix 832, 30 lb, 30 yd top shot of
    25lb CXX P-Line, 10 ft. 25lb Seaguar
    Blue Lable fluorocarbon leader to a 2/0 Eagle Claw 118 hook.

    Over all a great trip, captain, crew and cook all did a great job.
    And as always it was a pleasure
    fishing with eDDie (FishTaco) and his friend Jamie.

    What's up dude
    It was the white/mint tady 45 that claimed most of the victim's, I guess it kicks better because it was a gift.
    All the ones I buy they swim like crap, offset holes my butt.

    I love that jig, but I also used a fluttering /jigging Tady BA, all chrome, and a yellow Ironman 5 as yoyo, between 30/75 ft
    Let me know of your next trip and I'll tag along.

    The water was prime blue and
    This boat is the real deal, great customer service, lots of jokes, and honestly, the best I have been in a long time.
    And the blankets, I loved the blankets.

    Yup
    Great crew on the Old Glory
    Great boat but I forgot to mention there is not much room for long rods, the 7 ft are ok but surface jig slingers need to use the front of the boat or the very back of the rack, other than that I loved the elbow room, wide side beds, food and Obama jokes on the PA

    Thanks for the report. I have been wondering about that boat.

    I was thinking about hoping on one of their 1.5 trips next month that's listed on their website. Was their a fuel charge and mandatory food plan (of course I plan on verifying before I book)?
    Thanks

    You won't regret fishing with them.
    The fuel charge was $ 10 bucks
    For us, I think it was cheap we went very far away for a overnight trip, and fished late, so we came back late.
    We got free snacks and candy
    So it was cool.

    Thanks man, it is a great feeling
    When you're reeling fast and thump !
    they stop your jig.
    And to see them fly over the rail
    As you bounce them is priceless. It's addicting, I got this one and my buddy Jaime snaps the picture as it became unbuttoned in mid air.
