Default Back from the Rigs

Made the round trip to the rigs Saturday - Monday. Fishing was tough, but we managed three nice Yellowfin to mid 50# range and took what BFT we wanted and left acres of them behind. Strange to have really been challenged to get any BFT during the day despite them feeding actively. They just wanted nothing we threw at them, but at night they were coming over the rail with no problem.

Here is one of the YFT. I can't figure out how to rotate the pics here so I posted more along with my blog at http://www.bluewaterhowto.com/?p=88 This trip was quite a challenging adventure.

Right? With you, can only eat so much...any day on the water, beats a day on the dock...what's your average round trip distance? Kinda like venison, try not to think of the price per pound...it's always a good trip when nothing breaks or no one gets hurt...congrats!

Not sure. I think the longest we have done is a little over 400 statutory miles, but I usually am focused on fuel rather than miles. Based on burn on this trip it might have been about 440 total statutory miles.
