    Long Range Boat = More bait, Larger RSW Holds, fantastic meals, Nice rooms, 8 days on the water, More time to fish = Less angler stress. Big Stable platforms the list goes on and on really. But many will prefer the local boats for their own reasons too. Pick your poison.. Please keep in mind that this is the Long Range Forum!

    So, like XL1 said, it's San Diego Long Range fishing. If you are able to afford it and can arrange for the time away, and 8 day trip is awesome. One of the best things about it: Sam Patella, "One of the things I like about my job, only one steering wheel." Let go of all your worries and leave your expectations behind and go have a good time. 8 day trip, let's travel!

    Hey all I am on this trip as well. I did call the office and Frank is the scheduled captain for the trip. Fished the RP on a 3 day last year and I got spoiled. Overnight will never be the same again. Looking forward to my first 8 day and just trying not to be "THAT GUY"

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to this one. I'm coming down solo from Norcal and it will be fun to make some new friends. I enjoy when Frank drives. If you get Roy and Frank on the same trip it's really great. Very good crew on this boat. And, she's a beautiful boat.

    I saw that one of the changes to the boat in dry dock is replacing that toilet in the bow. That toilet was made for dwarfs, so I'm glad to see that go. Haha!

    Uh, Dave...that wasn't a toilet. It was a bait tank. You must have been "that guy."

    at least he didn't come on BD on a roll call thread and ask if anyone wanted to do a work out video with him on the shogun, because you sure as heck did before a trip we were both on a few years ago.........

    Oh, my God, I was "that guy"! I was just starting P90X, which is a 90-day workout routine. I figured I'd be so dedicated that I wouldn't want to skip any days, even on the boat. I never even made it through the first week...:rolleyes:

    I wondered why that bait wouldn't stay on the hook very well...

    I don't follow the RP, but just took a look at the list of work projects they did, all in about 4 weeks. "16-18 workers on the boat each day" Crew of four painters workjng outside and inside. Sounds like a major galley renovation, too.

    If you want to make an omelet, ya gotta break some eggs! Of course, if it's for 8 crew and 35 passengers, it's closer to four dozen eggs! :)

    The only dilemma I see is, does a US tuna taste the same as a Mexico tuna

    Just bought my California fishing license with the ocean enhancement stamp. Proud to know that we will be fishing in an "enhanced" ocean, thanks to me.

    Did you try a double leader & burying a brace of treble hooks?
    Wrinkle necks are not known as really good hook bait, or so I hear - poor swimmers.
    Seems LR boats utilize them chiefly to bolster the chum line which coincidentally livens up the rail - particularly spectacular at night under the lights.;)

    Maybe I'll see some of you guys the evening before. I usually can be found wondering the waterfront that night before with a big, stupid grin on my face...

    Something people need to be aware of when fishing for bluefin in US waters. On most trips it is a very slow pick and most anglers do not catch anything.

    You are correct. Bluefin are very boat shy. I've seen few caught over the years. I've seen plenty of breezers of them, only to slide in and have them vanish.

    RP is my favorite boat and has been for 20 plus years of long ranging with them. Have a great trip. I have to wait until April 2016 for my next RP trip:(

    ps I'd say not a chance you will be back in SD any sooner then the end of 8 days once you depart.
