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.
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!
Keep me in mind.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!
