Hi,

I am a newbie to these trips and got a couple of questions regarding booking these. Are fishing spot assigned? If I book a spot at the stern, am I allow to go to the bow once we are at the rig to cast Halcos for YFT? Also, what is the cancellation policy in an event of an emergency that I could not make the trip. Looking to book for myself and for a buddy or two.

Fishing spots are asigned for the bottom fishing. Once tuna fishing starts where you fish is based on method. Casting off the bow and some off the starboard side. Jiggers are on the port side.
Per their website the 30 hr trips can be refunded up to one week before sailing. After that ylu have to get someone to buy your ticket, rarely is this hard to do there's almost always someone needing a ticket.

I've got a trip in late March typically what does the yft bite look like that time of year?
Usually a smaller class of fish but March is normally pretty good. That time of year they can be keyed in on smaller baits. I would definitely bring a couple of the smaller Frenzy’s and if you chunk use tiny pieces of bait.

No. We will be moving too fast, 20-22 knots.
Wished i lived over there or you bring the boat over here. 22 knts are what dreams are made of. All our cheap boats go slower and slower. 10 knts is the norm. I would love to see you guys come over here and mix things up. I gots plenty of numbers for ya but just not much in the way of tuna.
