I agree about the 5 day trips Rick.
I've been doing some research about San Diego's Long Range trips and how they began.
It took a few very hardy fishermen, that committed money and effort, that were successful to really begin and continue that type of fishing.
I know many of us that fish the GOM have the same fortitude and hope we'll someday pull off a 5 dayer.
It would be great to find a Captain (and fully capable boat and crew) to join in the exploration!
