Default 5/10 Offshore report - First trip in the new boat

Well, decided to head offshore today for some bottom bumpin/trolling. Headed to the Tenneco in 3-5's, and the new boat handled it well. Not much was happening there, so we played around with some bobos...





Then, we trolled around the edge for a couple hours. Got one nice wahoo bite on the yozuri bonita, but got off after a few seconds :doh. Later, we hit up some bottom spots on the way in. Got a decent AJ bite going,as usualmost of them measured 27.5 inches on the ruler.







No keepers for the day, but was definately a lot of fun, and a good test for the new boat.

Nice report and congratulations on the new boat! Are you still in the breaking inphase? Sure would be interested in the performance numbers on those verados. We went out to the Chevron rig a few days ago with live hardtails and didn't catch a keeper.

Nah, we're out of the breaking in phase. The boat had some hours from previous sea trials, etc. We burned about 50 gallons yesterday on our trip, and we never turned off the engines.

Sounds like a great first trip! No mechanical problems,fires electrical problemsor unwanted water coming in and you made it back under your own power. For a first trip out I'd call it a great success and you caught a few fish to boot.

Nice boat True-King....We saw you out there a couple of times. We were in the 2700 Triton. We caught nothing but big snapper at the Tennaco, So we headed back to the west. That boat looks awesome in the water. Nice rig!!!!!!
