I'd like to know how many guys are interested in 52 hour (two night) chater with Capt Steve Tomoney in late May.
I was thinking about going on the Big E a couple of time in June, but I like to fish with Capt Tomoney after reading successful fishing report. I thought it might be a little early yft to show up around rigs off LA, but they are there already.

I just talked with Capt Steve Tomeny. The 52 hour(two night) trip is $9500 excluding tip upto 12 guys. If I have at least 8 guys, I'd like to arrange the trip.

I feel one night fishing is a little risky and I like to fish two nights.
The problems is I can not get dates to fish two nights in June.
The only dates available for two night fishing is From May 25 - May 30.
I have about 4 - 5 guys now.

Kil,

I would love to go on that trip, but fortunately or unfortunately, I just committed to spend my birthday (May 25) with my wife and mother and to go out of town the next weekend. Otherwise....

Kil,

CatpEddie is correct. There are ALWAYS yellowfin at the "floaters". Doesn't always mean they are willing to bite, but they are always there. I would love to go, but a little too much money for me right now.

I talked with Capt Steve Tomeny this morning who was on the way to the dock from 30 hr tuna trip. They had 12 nice yellowfin and stop fishing by 3:30 am as they had enough and headed home.
He said poppers worked, but cheap Halco Trembler lures worked as well by casting and retrieving very fast.

As many guys made plan during Merorial Days, I don't think I can get enough guys for the trip in May. I'll check whether I can get two nights in June during weekdays.

I talked again with Capt. Steve and was told there is no two nights available until June 15 as many guys charter the boat for red snapper as the season is slated to June 1st. As I plan to go to Kodiak Island for halibut and king salmon jigging from mid June and I booked the BIg E in early July, I don't think I have dates available to charter the boat. Instead I decided to go on the Big E in late May or early June.

I haven't decided yet, but I might call them after watching weather forecast even the airfare cost more.
