I saw that. It's outstanding and kinda unprecedented! Really do wish I was on that trip. People must have figured out how to work together really well and that's a beautiful fuckin thing. Bet the crew was stoked to see that as well.

They'll earn their keep @ $5-7 per fish for sure. (Do the math) Now who was it that was bagging on this boat just the other day? Haven't been on her for a while but I have great fishing memories of when Johnny was the captain and Booger was a greenhorn pinhead...Great 3/4 day!

They must've got smart and had 38 people throwing the 30-80lb gear for those footballs and basically lift polling them in

The boat San Diego is doing what they have always been doing. Putting their customer's on the fish by working very hard at it. They keep moving and searching out those few awesome patties.
The skipper or boat doesnt choose the grade of fish they run into and their anglers are not going to throw anything back for the sharks.
Keep up the hard work.

If fish counts are the only thing you use to decide if a boat is good or not, then the thunderbird must be pretty good.

The captain really should have stopped the passengers from catching so many tuna and gone sand dab fishing to round out their day! Doesn't he know the passengers caught more than they know what to do with? LOL


Anyone on this trip!?!?

I bet the Thunderbird leaves you at the dock and goes with the higher paying fare.

Can you even filet that many fish in 3/4 of a day ? Damn ! Deckhands probably had oil for blood .:_diarrhea_:
Good question. 375 fish to filet on the way back from a 3/4 must have been brutal, but revenue must have been sweet. This season must have brought serious dividends to all the boats/landings.

Sure. I was one of two deckhands in the eighties when we cleaned over a thousand mixed tuna. That's cleaned. Had three hours to do. We got done. Ask Andy Cates how many he cleaned on the way in on his dads boat New Lo-An it's like 1100 mixed tuna. mostly on his own. When you cut daily for a living. You can slay some fish. Give props to these crew members. Most treat customers well!!!

They went north, stayed in US waters the whole day. Limits would be 10 yf per person


US limits on rat yellows is 5 fish, your only allowed to keep 10 yellowtail if 5 of them measure at or greater than 28" with the current stock of yt we have right now (1 yr olds) I doubt they were over 28" (three year old) YFT, 10 fish any size in us waters. So they are good to go.

Yeah yeah nice haul. But did they drop any fish on deck causing backlashes for their passengers?
my real goes to free spool as soon as it is gaffed then thumb on the spool or clicker on. I've had fish fall off the gaff into the water and still land them because the reel is in free spool!
