Default Range to Petronius

Have done the math on the gas per hour it so I know its possible to get there but don't know if its worth it....



Do you all think a 24' Regulator with twin 200's and a 150 gal. tank is suitable enough to run to petronius and have a good trip. Have mainly stayed 45 miles out and in with it so I could run around and have the option to stay out longer if fish hit or if I wanted to change tactics. Just didn't want to run out, have ability to troll around for an hour or stay put and then have to leave and go straight in due to range limitations.

i would say yes no doubt. we have taken a 24 cape horn with twins from dauphin island and trolled around the pertronis with plenty of gas.

Shouldn't be any problem. I've been out there on smaller boats with less fuel so I think you should be fine just keep an eye out on the weather.

Hey, Jeff. How are my lures. I bet they're getting homesick unless you've been feeding them to blue marlins. How about posting a picture so I can show it to their cousins and assure them that they're being well taken care of?

your lures are doing fine under the couch. They will be getting wet in a week or so.

Couldgo either waydepending on thetype ofengines and weather. The old 2-strokes in rough weather will pull you down to 1mpg so a round trip with no trolling could eat up to 130 gallons. That's getting a little close for comfort. What type of engines do you have and where are you departing from?

I had a 25' HydraSport with twin 225's and 200 gallons of fuel. I fished the Petronius (out of Pensacola Pass). It was rough all day and I had to coast into Fort Morgan on fumes.
