A Giant Kudos goes out to Capt"s Steve Sr. Steve Jr. Carl, and of course Orla for helping to put this trip together. They not only gave us a great deal, but removed one of their scheduled trips in order to accommodate us, and give us these prime time dates.
TNT= Tuna and Tile, and everything in between. This is hands down one of my favorite adventures. On this very special Charter we should expect to see any and possibly all of the following: YFT/LFT/SWORDFISH/MAHI/TILEFISH/WRECKFISH/BARRELFISH/
HAKE/SQUID. We may also encounter Big Eye Tuna and Mako Shark as well, you just never know.
We will definately make an effort to put a few Swords on the Boat during our nighttime fishing.
Here's the details:
Depart: Sunday September 9th at 9:00 p.m.
Return: Wednesday September 12th at 9:0 p.m.
Cost: $635.00 per person (Not Including Gratuity or Fish Cleaning)
Boat: Viking Star
Note: This trip is limited to 19 Friends plus myself. I am not paying on this one and i want everyone to know that up front.
While no two of these trips are alike. Here's a general description of what you can expect
Daytime: We normally start off the day on the troll, looking for Tuna. Depending upon the current conditions and the Tuna Bite, we will switch off between Tuna Trolling/Jigging and Deep Drop fishing for bottom species. We may also hit up a few pots for Mahi. The goal here is to put as much meat on the boat and blood on the decks as possible.
Nighttime: Once we anchor up for the night, and get the chum slick going, everything and anything is possible. Some folks will be busy trying to catch live squid for Tuna/Swordfish bait. While others will be busy trying to jig Tuna. Still others will try deep dropping for hake. Everyone should have their favorite Mahi outfit rigged and baited as they often tear thru the chum slick.
Trolling Viking Style: These Guy's have this down pat and have developed a system that is fair to all. We will all have a trolling buddy, and will troll 10 outfits. When a tuna is landed "on the troll" that fish is split between you and your Buddy. You can take turns fighting your Tuna "if you like" or you and your Buddy can switch off. If you are not busy fighting a tuna while on the troll you should be busy throwing your favorite jig as a number of Tuna are landed this way.
Note: Tuna taken on the troll are not eligible for the pool. Only Tuna taken on a jig or on the chunk are eligible for the pool.
As with all Viking Charters, Your fish will be iced down for you, and ice for your fish is included in the price.
