Hail Mary

We started our day with a handful of Wahoo and 25lb average tuna then decided to make a long move in hopes of it paying off.  We arrived at our destination before dark and had outstanding yellowtail fishing ending our day with happy smiles all around.

We’ll be home Sunday morning

The Guys


We had slower fishing again today but the beautiful weather is helping to keep our spirits up.  We saw plenty of fish today – they just weren’t interested.  On a brighter note, the area we got a sampling of big fish from yesterday was productive today for one of our code boats who had fish from 100-300+ !!

Tomorrow is another day,

The Guys


Today we had good sign of high 100lb + but you had to work for your bite – it looks good for the near future…….

Moving On

We had less than perfect weather and fishing conditions today and only 10 wahoo for our efforts but it’s early in the game and so we are moving on to hopefully bigger and better things.  Everyone is well

The Guys


Today we kicked off the first day of our trip which was mostly spent traveling down and relaxing. Beautiful weather and calm seas allowed us to rig up and get familiar with the gang. With a few hours late in the day we did manage to wet a line and catch a couple handfuls of nice dorado for the galley. Giving us high hopes for the road ahead of us and it was a nice day to be on the ocean.

Ready for battle,

The guys

Waypoint #1

We are on the last leg of our trip, the rods have been all bundle up, the boat has been scrubbed top to bottom and it’s time for Prime Rib dinner of course. Today we were pressed for time so it was spent just traveling up the coast to make our arrival in the morning. As always would like to thank our sponsor Steve Carson for once again all his hard work throughout the year in preparation for Penn university annual trip. Also to all the gang that joined this trip with us. Thank You All So Much.

Your Crew,

Sam, Ray, Andrew, Justin, Brian, Josh and Paul
