All right guys, if ever wanted to do an over nighter after Tuna, I got a trip you might be intrested in.

The Big - E does only one of these real long trips a year (76 hrs)and it coincides with the Freeport Fishing Fiesta.

The big boat will have a cook and includes food in the price.

If you ever were worried you would not know anyone, or were not sure what to bring, I would be happy to walk you through everything......

Boat leaves on July 1st and comes back on Sunday the 4th ....still time to see the fire works ......

Here are a few pics that gives you an idea of what we catch

I'm thinking about getting a bunch of members together and booking the stern of the Big E on a 72 hour trip :D

The stern is nice but I like the Bow, when I toss a Topwater at 100lb class tuna ..

Also, this is the only 4 day trip they do each year unless it's a private charter


Now I know what a truck load of fish really is. I can only imagine what peopel thought when they drove by you on the raod or freeway

The boat caught 144 yellowfin and hundreds of Black fin on this trip .... this pic is only a 3rd of the Yellow fin

We had to put them in the truck to make it easy to get to the cleaning table .... no high-way driving here....


How far offshore and what are the sleeping conditions like?......... how much per person?

You generally go way out beyond the regular floaters like Boom-vang ....to Falcon and beyond ....but you try to go where the fish are....

Sleeping conditions are nice for a party boat, clean bunks with curtians to close yourself off from anyone.... and away from traffic and the food areas
By far the best sleeping conditions of any big big boat on the coast

This trip will run a cool $G .... but that comes with a cook and food

That comes down to $250 a day and night ......

WOW, for a cool G, it better come with something else :) Sorry, but can't afford that right now after my cool G is broken and lost gear last month.

What a meat haul! I would love to do a 72 hour trip. The 36 hour trip is awsome as well. I want to hit the deep blue sometime this year.

I took 3rd in the Fiesta with a 28.8 Black fin Tuna ..... my buddy took 1st with his 71 lb yellow fin .... there were another 4 first place guys on the boat ....

My buddy Kyle, with the yft, also had his name drawn for the grand prize offshore winner

My highlight was the blue marlin I hooked out at the floaters ..... she dumped a 30 wide Tiagra in almost 30 seconds ....... it took me an hour to get that line back (approx 500 yrds)....... I had to pass the rod off for the next 45 minutes to catch my breath .....two anglers fought her at that time ......I came back and finished her off with the correct stand up gear ...

We released her at the boat ..... she was estimated in the 350 - 400lb range

After the sushi throw down with the tuna yesterday I think I am glowing with Mercury ....
