    from my understanding, lots of YFT were lost to terminal tackle malfunctions (leaders, hooks, etc).

    23 of my buddies and I just came back from a Scat Cat trip. It was her madden voyage - we went to a drill ship near perdido. Seas to 10ft & lotsa rain kept things interesting. Fishing was ok with 11YF ( the largest was caught by my buddies son and was his first - 94#) A couple wahoo on the troll out. BF were entertaining as usual. Capt Ronnie and co-Capt Fred were dynamite. The crew was first class and worked their tails off helping everyone do everything. Deadly with a cast net on squid and flyers. The boat was faster (20% ish) and clean. Engines seemed quieter and cleaner running. The rod holders were great. Free ice for your coolers pre and post trip was a nice new benefit. Can’t wait to go back....starting to twitch......

    seven large hangers, 14 small yellowfin, they are laid out left and right side lines in the field of blackfin. We ate two YFT aboard. Had over 45 hookups, but lots of losses (line breaks and pulled hooks mostly). None were lost at the gaff, if the fish got to the boat, it was welcomed aboard with a brain spike and a bleed and a cold water bath to get ready for ice, like always.
