Can any of you OG's fill me in on the history of the GEM trip? I think I had read that it started over on the allcoast board but what year? Who was onboard for the first trip and who has been along since? What boats? How many trips have there been? Anybody have any old pics to post? bert

Opppss, sorry I forgot about that trip:eek: . Thanks Kil for remind me on that trip.

I think I know why:p , because I didn't catch a single yft tuna on that trip :eek: :D

Actually, that wasn't a GEM trip. The GEM trips are focused on exploration of new areas and/or techniques where the Winter Venice or GCT* (I forget what we call them but Gulf Coast Tuna something) trips are hardcore chunking at the Midnight Lumps in a quest for triple digit tuna. It still was a great trip none the less with 4 out of 12 people getting personal bests that topped the century mark.

Here are some pictures from the Gem03 trip that Minnow has in the Gallery.

Earl and I live baiting marlin with 80Ws.

My personal favorite, Ed Bass having a stroke with all the gear we brought.
