Soda Pop. Hope you have a great trip and say hi to all the regulars for us. Is this the Petrescu monster tuna trip?
Team hoo 10th year. Great bunch of guys.
Soda.....tides and current look good for AM arrival at Hurricane. Not perfect...... and the moons waining. Late moonrise Skinnys gonna eat that metal full speed. Look for tuna in the afternoon. PL68. .. on one.trip in the day.....added (slid) a 9" rubber skirt to make it look squid like. Went to the bow at twilight. ...they asked if I was.gonna.rockfish....lol. 10 minutes later.....first of 3 fish all over 100. I had 3 other PL68's.....The only "rock cod" jigs on the boat. Needless to say.....I shared. So.....burn .... yoyo..... drop....fluttering. You know. Mix it.up.....but remember what it looks like.....squid. I Got bit on the re-drop from half way up.... consistently. Watch for the tick.....line stop. Put the hammer down.... and crank it brother. Sharing what worked over and.over. Oh.....I might get rid of that stock treble hook....8/0 7691 works wonders. Saw 2 guys lose bigger fish....due to weak "rockfish" treble hooks. Kick butt brother. We're waiting with baited breath... lol. :jig:
Thanks brother for the information. Hammer down. Got it. Ft

Just to clarify. You pinned on a "Sluggo" type rubber skirt onto your PL 68 in the afternoon, or twilight, dropped it down slowly, and if you didn't get a bite, slowly retrieved it to mimic a squid?

Epic you are stoked. Good luck to everyone involved. So wish I was there. One of the fishiest boats

The intrepid has the highest food budget (it's not a secret). They kinda have too. Enjoy the food

I did ask and made my concerns known on the boat as fas as drinking a big cup of shut the fuck up, not gonna happen. What’s the point of these forums? Go fuck yourself Steve and all the chumps who liked your post.

Why you shitting on someone's post because you don't like the food? Go on the boat that fits your tastebuds. Not everyone is as rich as you and have the option to select a boat based on food selection. We go to fish, if the fish aren't biting, then maybe we'll eat, but food isn't the first thing on our minds when we go fishing.
Food is the boredom killer, and there is lots of time on these trips to want to eat because there is very little left to do....just saying.

The PL68 ....removed the treble. Slid a 9" octopus style skirt half way up the lure body until it stretched without tearing. Tied it on with floss. Replaced stock treble with 8/0 7691 Mustad hook. Got it? Never tried a "sluggo" tail....

As for time....I focused on "twilight" both morning and evenings.... for a couple of reasons. The tunas eyesight (rods and cones) goes through considerable changes during these times of great light change. It's a physical characteristic that makes them more vulnerable to the jig presentation at those times. (Kite as well)

Those whom have fished with me before... know this is my ritual.... daily. Twilight.....for about an hour.... always. Have had a great deal of luck using this at Hurricane. ...All the RG. Islands...All of the inner banks. Needless to say, I missed a few dinners.....lol. BUT to the dismay of a few cooks.... I've also emptied a few galleys during dinner... lol. A "fattie" hitting the deck during dinner requires some pandemonium.

Science....and fishing. Should you follow this advice... your results will speak for themselves. That "sluggo" might work too.....throw it in the water brother....let us know. Hoping SODA....your on them right now! Kick.some.butt brother... I've got faith in you. By the way....be safe out there.

I bring a big fat book or two and read, It as much as I'd like to at home anymore. Have to know when to say when with the food, it isn't as easy to lose weight a short it was a few years back

Yah but. Negative thread jack on something positive. Ceases to amaze me.

Posting a food report from a previous trip. On someone's, On the water real time report? Its very distracting to the OPs, On the water report about fishing.

How about starting a new different thread. About food. Instead of destroying a, On the water report. Which makes others hesitant to post on the water reports. Hence robbing members of future, On the water reports

Nothing wrong with a food discussion. Wrong place, inappropriate and rude imo. Imo
