    I wish you only the best, but in late September through October the boats list trips that may very well not get off the docks, due to too few people signing up. The boat will continue to be listed to go, and then I've been called as late as 11 am the day of the trip to have the landing tell me that the boat won't run because the load is too light. I really hope that this doesn't happen to you! I've never fished the Old Glory, don't have anything to say about it. I have a tuna trip booked for October 26 on the Condor, and the only reason that I booked the trip for me and my brother coming over from Arizona is because the Condor out of Fisherman's Landing has a track record for going offshore even with very light passenger counts, I'm talking 14 or 15 people instead of the 37 that they would like to take. So keep the Condor in mind as a possible backup plan if the Old Glory can't go.

    Plj46, I told a another person going on the trip the same thing.
    22 spots left out of 28 when 80+ percent of other 1 1/2 day trips sold out already.
    I'm thinking of getting on a couple of waiting lists and if one opens up cancel on the old glory.

    Well WTF? Are the yellowfin not chewing of the piers yet? I hate it when overnight boats are still toying with our emotions in September and possibly October

    Ive fished this boat before. We did not catch that many, even though other boats did really well... But the captain and crew are really cool, so your time on the water will be enjoyable... As far as fishing goes, they have had good trips, and they have had bad trips, so I say just get out there and fish!
