    The date will be July 16th to July 19th 2020. Boat departs Thursday at noon and comes back before sunrise on Sunday. Serious answers please. Sorry if you cannot make it. No worries, once this trip is done we can plan another. You might regret not fishing on this trip.

    The Cost is $775 per person. This includes the tip. The tip will be mandatory since a couple of year back year some were only tipping 20 bucks as if this was a restaurant. As always you can expect very hard working mates. The trip is capped at 20 fishermen. This is still an awesome rate in comparison with the regular price of the normal Pulley Ridge trip, since it includes the tip!

    I will need your deposits by March 2nd 2020. Deposit is $400 the rest I will need it by June 15th 2020. You can pay the trip in full if you wish to do so.

    PM on this site is very limited so please email me at the email below for my paypal information. Paypal gift please if not then add 4%. Please ensure to write your first name, last name, contact phone number and emergency contact phone number. First Come First served. The bunks will be assigned to you. Plenty bunks are available. You pay deposit first, you get the spot first. Once all from the previous trip confirmed, I will open the trip to others.

    I understand that sometimes people have emergencies and might need to cancel. I will allow cancellations until May 30th. This will give me time to look for a replacement. If you need to cancel after May then you will need to find your own replacement or you will lose your deposit.

    Plan A: Where? Pulley Ridge, grouper fishing, snapper and Tuna hunting, this is not a deep drop trip.

    Plan B: If winds do not cooperate during that week we will fish in Dry Tortugas

    If by now some have not gotten it yet:

    This is just like any Party Boat drifting; Using about 10 ounces with bait. Braid is best to drift. You need at least 300 yards of 50lb braid.

    If you want to vertical jig like I will, this is an amazing opportunity to do so. There are plenty quality fish here and all will get a chance at some trophy fish. Remember the Groupers and Wahoo from years past? Ok, then you know.

    Here is additional info:

    The boat has AC in the bunk area and the head is by the transom on both sides behind the Galley. One of them has a shower.

    If you do not like heat, you can fish during the night and sleep at noon's hot hour.

    You do not have to worry about the heat so much. Just make sure you hydrate and drink less beer. Yes, drinking on the boat is ok. Drink less and you will be able to fish more, a lot more.

    You can bring your 100 qt coolers and fill them with ice for your drinks and extra food. You can bring a bait cooler. The boat provides squid.

    Here is the boat food menu information https://yankeecapts.com/yankee-capts-galley/

    1.) Gear? A heavy mutton rod works fine. Pier rods, bridge rods will work. Reels with low 4:1 gear are great 6:1 gear will also work but are not best.

    Minimum Gear

    - 2 bottom rods and 1 top water rod would be the minimum you should take.

    - 25 of each: 3/0, 5/0, 7/0 hooks

    - file to sharpen hooks

    - Wire for Kingfish rigs (to catch tunas or wahoo at night)

    - 20 #1 Barrel Swivels

    - 30lb 40lb And 50lb Leader material

    - 10 each 8 ounce and 10 ounce bank sinkers

    - two 12 ounce and two 16 ounce bank sinkers

    Look for more at the Yankee Capts site: http://www.yankeecapts.com/tackle.php

    2.) I recommend you sleep on the way out, in between moves, right after the morning bite until noon hours, and on the way back.

    3.) Bait, any oily bait will work, as Fishingfool and PhishingPhanatic suggested fresh bait is key, no need for gogs, but it's always good to bring some. Kingfish and macks store well in the freezer (wrap them in cellophane). They work great.

    4.) Trolling is allowed, but the boat will not stop for dinks. I suggest the biggest and strongest reel you may have over a 30 size.

    Small detail on year date....

    Fishing the Yankee Captain is on my bucket list ever since I saw them return while I harbored at Sunset Marina. I doubt if I can make the 15 hour trip to the keys, but thinking about the logistics.

    Are electrics ok for the age impaired (72) ?

    LOL Thanks, I guess we will be fishing and then going "Back to the future". On this trip we don't normally fish past 350' and it is mostly jigging. A great trip for the electric reel would be the actual Pulley Ridge trip, not the Pulley Ridge Lite.
