On the Excel 16 day trip right now. We departed San Diego on Wednesday morning. First stop was loading 700 scoops of bait. Spent 2 + hours loading bait for our 16 day trip. We skipped the rocks due to cold water and not much going on. We our now heading to hurricane bank. We’re looking at arriving Sunday morning. Great seas on the ride down south but a bit nippy outside. Jeans and a t-shirt with a windbreaker kind of weather. As the days roll by the temperature will get much hotter so the cooler weather is welcomed on board the Excel. Yesterday we had a wahoo seminar and today we will have a tuna seminar. Great group of guys and a very relaxing atmosphere. The charter master had a raffle yesterday with lots of people winning avet reels. I was one of the lucky winners so I had the crew put on 65 LB. specta and w 50 LB. top shot. It’s ready with a JRI green bomb to try out. I will try to keep everybody informed but as we steam our way south the internet may not work. For now it’s breakfast on the BIG X. stay tuned.
