    I guess I'll start this thread......it's the Old Farts vs. the Young Farts in Puerto Vallarta....Sept. 7th - 11th.

    Six of us 2coolers are headed down to PV next week in search of YFT cows. Dr. Shark, McGolfer, Grescobia, Argo, myself and a friend of Argo will be fishing next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in hopes of landing the biggest yellowfin tuna of our life. The weather has been stormy of late....so hopefully that changes and we all get to battle the beasts.

    Get out your magic sticks and purple paint Vance.....we need all we can get on this one. Should be a blast.

    I will be taking a camera and a High Def video cam to see if we can load up on some pics and video. This should be a good one!

    The geezers have definitely put together a great team. I suppose that I would place my bet on the old farts also. But....I like the idea of being the underdogs. (What's the story/stories with your lack of faith in any boat that Argo is on?) Let's kick their butts, Argo!

    Best of luck to the PV crew!!! Can't wait to see that video and lots of pictures. I'm betting on Team OF to dominate this trip. I've seen them work and they make tuna catching look like childs play.

    Richard, dont take the video camera if you go to any of the "night clubs" I heard it gets pretty wild down there... LOL. Hopefully you all will be too beat down from catching tuna to hit the bars..

    If I catch a 200 lb. cow on the first day....I may hit the bars the next day to get some rest. I just hope I don't catch a 200 lb. cow at the bars....lol.

    It would seem that the O.F.'s have crafted a dream team; but Argo can be a helluva wild card for the Y.F.'s (his friend could be a bagger too)!

    The O.F.'s have proven their abilities time and time again, but remember when the U.S. won the gold again Russia.....? lol

    Catch a 200lber at the bar? That's funny as heck! Just don't bring back any video if you do!

    And you're welcome to take the good luck charm!! If you find the 200lber at the bar, it might come in handy!

    well i am hoping that i catch 2 100lbers at the bar and a 300lber in the ocean. i really don't care who catches what as long as at least 2 or 3 tuna over 200lbs are caught in the ocean....rick

    Speaking of Toes... I hear STXFisherman is taking Jerry's lucky charm on the trip... talk about an unfair advantage.

    Looking forward to next weekend when we'll all be out on the water somewhere!!

    lol......jared is just mad because i hooked the three largest fish in venice on our jan trip......I reeled in the yellowfin and wahoo and handed gimmedeal the rod just after the hookset on the yellowfin because he had not yet caught a fish that day and it was a pretty rough day all around. Oh and did I mention that on day two in 8'+ seas our boat got 5 or 6 yellowfin and jareds didnt get any.....lol, that is why jared is bitter about the boats that I am on.......

    I am with rick though, I dont care even if drshark catches the bigest fish, as long as someone gets something, I will still be kickin back on a boat in the pacific tryin and relaxing while away from the daily grind for the week.....I do HOPE to catch a nice 200lb+ tuna though, 300 would be great but I have yet to even get in the 200 club........
