20 person 20 knot private charter??? Good question.
Okay,........ the reason i asked is because the Murphys on SPI have completely rebuilt the Thunderbird
they tore it down to the hull for a complete re-build and new engines.....
the words i was told today is that, "it was awesome"
(i've also been told that 'Murphy-speak' is taboo on the 2Cool board.... hope it isn't like that here)
anyway, friends have been talking to'em about maybe doing some overnighters out to the Clyde Beaudreaux and have already asked me if i might be interested in something in March......... i said prolly not because i don't figger i'll get down there 'til sometime after April 15th
the only reason y'all haven't seen me on any of y'all's tuna trips is because i have a sportfisher docked in PI and can't really justify traveling to fish somewhere else (i have a 2nd home there too and spend most all o'spring and summer there chasing marlin and other big-game on the boat)
i was thinking this sorta thing might be a nice change from me having to be the captain every time i go out on my own boat
from what i understand, i heard one o'my friends may have already been in touch w/McGolfer........... dunno for sure, but i thot i'd go ahead post this to see if there might be any interest in fishing outta SPI
so basically the murphys haven't ever done sumpin like this from what i understand and don't think they even know what to charge at this point (from what i'm hearing)....... all i've heard for sure is they'd need about 20 people with their own gear to consider it
i haven't fished any overnighters in yeeeeeeaaaaarrrrrsssss (back before big spinners, spectre, and high lever-drag settings ever hit the market) but lately i just can't seem to make it thru the winter without a bluewater injection between trips to my 2nd home and boat........ i live in Louisiana so next winter i might be asking to get in on some o'yall's organized trips to venice or the area if that's okay (that's close enough to home for me to do anytime)
any interest here in sumpin like that?.... (the SPI Murphy thingy)
also, during spring and summer, if there were to be any straglers there with time-on-their-hands before or after a trip maybe we could go chase down a few bills, wahoo, dorado, and tuna on my boat while you're there
[btw,fwiw,..... SPI's closer to that rig than anywhere else on the Texas coast]
