Thank you! It was defenitly a long trip for a two man crew. Played it safe on the way in making sure the driver was fully awake. It's so easy for things to go wrong that far out at night especially with the wind that picked up substantially.

Default Yellowfin jumping

Went out last Thursday night with a crew of four out of Pensacola. Worked Petronius with just a couple of bites on jigs. Headed to marlin with a lot of black fin and seeing yellowfin jumping. Started chunking with no bites. Moved on and in the morning after catching almost 40 black fin, hit our first yellow fin. About 40min fight but worth it, hit our 2nd about 30 min later. Had a third hit but snapped at the leader. Trolled in from Ram Powell to Petronius but got nothing. Still a good trip with the yellow fin.

Sorry cut the post short, was torn between heading to horn or ram Powell had hit two tuna the week before at ram Powell, so I decided to head back to ram Powell and glad I did. I too had a sportsman run up behind my boat at the ram Powell with a fish on. I was getting upset but the other two guys waved him off. Like you I laughed but we did have a fish on.

How ironic it may have been the same guy. Here is how it went down for us. He was stopped alongside the middle of a drill ship which I took a mental not of as we came around the corner. Both riggers popped on a double YFT I slowed the boat down and pressed the auto pilot as we had a clear course at the moment. Both me and Jason "2 man crew" went back and started reeling. I look over my shoulder at the front of the boat and he's steaming straight at us at like 18 knots! He leans over and says you gotta watch where your going Hahahaha! It was a big sea foam green boat probably over 50 feet.

It was the same boat, I remember the sea foam green on the bottom. Wish I would have gotten the name of the boat, but I for sure remember the sea foam green and was a hi king it was like a 47ft boat.

It was the same boat. We were on the Ram Powell with a fish on and he charged at behind our boat. I tried to hail them on 68 but got nothing. So two of the guys on the back of my boat waved him off, but he got within 100 yds of my boat knowing we had a fish on.

Default We weren't so lucky!!

Looks like you guys had a great trip. Thanks for the advice the other day. We did head out of destin Friday evening and arrived at the Petronius around daybreak with nothing but sharks to show. Moved over to the Marlin with no luck. Trolled all day without a single bite. This is my second trip to the rigs since getting my boat and would love to hook up with some experienced offshore fisherman to maybe learn the ropes. That's a hell of a long trip for no fish x 2. Thanks again.
