Given the uncertain yellowfin fishery of recent seasons, an extended trip option (particularly in late Aug-Sept) would provide more options--sword, bluefin, tiles, billfish--rather than trying to cram them all into a 24 hour window.

Anytone?

One of the reason our June/July trips are so successful even the last two years is because we do 30+ hours trips. Definately makes more sense when the night chunk is slow.

Over Under Adventures. 48's are my favorite & they do them often! Capt. Joe is one fishy skipper.:bow: & the Low Profile is a 55ft fish slayer!:D

Our overnights are all 30-36 hours. No sense making the run to turn around :nuts:

We will probably do two or three double overnights this year. Usually we make 2 or so fun trips (crew trips) that are doubles. Most anglers, even the hardcore ones, cant handle 56-60 hours on the water, especially if it ain't beautiful out!

We will be offering many different trips this year, but if the tuna dont show, we will gladly return deposits, as I would rather not put the added wear and tear on my boat if there are no fish to catch!

Our doubles aren't that much more expensive than our Normal canyon overnights.... I will be running specials in Feb, take a look, most will be pleasantly surprised at the prices!

We have ALWAYS ran long overnight trips (30-36+ hours) We never saw the sense in making such long runs to turn around in a few hours.
I don't even really like doing day troll/jigging trips for bluefin because we only get 10-12 hours of fishing time in! But, some of our clients cant find the time to do the long overnighters and double overnighters and a day troll is what they are limited to time wise!

I'm not a charter but we did a couple doubles last year and I plan to do more of them. We left the evening before and did 9kts overnight to be on the edge for dawn and trolled all day, chunked at night and trolled a second day. We actually saved money because we burnt almost nothing on the way out.
