This is a re-incarnation of the wahoo wanderlust, with some changes to the goals for the trip.
This trip is now being 'charter mastered' by captain fred (ie: Fishermans wharf, open trip, available to book on the website ($91 extra), the office, or myself).

I changed it to a "flower gardens excursion" with a new duration of 60 hours, and a slightly raised price from our 56 hour trips to $1100. We might change it to 66 hours in the future.

These trips will leave on Thursday evening at 6pm, so you would have a required 4pm arrival time at the wharf.

It is NOT a dedicated wahoo trip, but in the correct months they will be on the menu.

The new times let us do four dusk/dawn wahoo (or other meat) trolls or tuna twilights, and spend mid day time exploring deep and shallow bottom fishing, primarily targeting legal snapper species and grouper, and maybe some blackfin or hoo chunking/casting, or trolling over some shallows for grouper. Friday night we will probably go to gunnison for tuna, or maybe hunt the eastern deep channels if we are seeing yellowfin there.

To sign up, Call me (eight seven seven -nine 2 seven- tuna, please leave VM as i am on the water often)
or email mallettfred on gmail or message me through 360tuna. Or call the wharf directly, or use the website (for an extra $90-ish fee they charge for hosting the site (see below))

Cheers, capt fred

Capt Fred - I know you stated it's not a dedicated wahoo trip - but can you provide a few more details:
load limit?
when trolling, can you accommodate 3 or 4 anglers/
So based upon the load, how many cycles before one's turn is called again?

Thxs!

Last year we came up with a "team" setup that everybody really liked.
I think rotations were 30 minutes
boat usually trolls 5-7 lures depending on conditions (up to 10 I hear).
with a typical 24-25 folks, Lot's of rotations, and the team thing really build
the fun and cameraderie.

No idea if that happens this year or not.

We have the ability with two three clip outriggers to run 10 lines, but would probably run 4 down lines, and 4 rigger surface lines with islander and ballyhoo (2 each side)
as for the team thing, it is likely.
Remember that we have no plans to troll till everyone wants to commit suicide. We will target non prime times towards grounds fish
