Default Fat Jax 12/2-3/17 Rig Report

Fat Jax is washed and back in its house Ended up the trip with 20 Blackfin Tuna (10-15 Lbs ea.) so about 200 Lbs of chum  We did hook into a could much larger Tuna, but the hooks pulled (#theonethatgotaway) lol Sharks out there were few, I only got Sharked once (so I guess the final count was 20.5 Tuna) Weather was great until the trip home, 90 plus miles straight into a 3-4 foot head sea spaced just so the entire boat fell into the trough of every third wave set. That just pounded us like bruised marshmallows (picture that… )…. I’m going to feel this for a few days…. I LOVE going to the #oilrigs, so the pounding was worth it in the end…. Great to spend some time with my Brother. Now, I’ll get the chum made over the next few weeks and make another run later this winter or early spring…. #tunafishing

The water was as clean and clear as I can remember seeing it. I'm sure it was blue, but the cloud cover wouldn't allow it to show its true color and beauty...

I spend a lot of time on editing the videos... I had it along, but with the action and me trying to fish too, just didn't use it... I would like to get some videos of something besides the Shark Fishing though.... someday maybe...

I will need another run (or 3,4 or 5) like that. I go through a good bit with the Charter biz...

Remember our first time out there? we left about 9 o'clock at night and that was about 9 or 10 years ago., we only got one little blackfin, if I remember right. we lost a cedar plug first off around the MP255.... wham "welcome to rig fishing...." ... Josh, how time flies....

Yeah that was a fun trip, got me hooked! I remember being wiped out on the way back in and you were cool as a cucumber, wide awake. I asked you the longest you'd ever stayed awake and you told me something like 5 days. That's when you start hallucinating and smelling colors!

Time does fly, since then you've helped me sell a house, buy a house, I've had 3 kids... I miss fishing out deep on the regular but I'll be back teaching my little ones one day. I still try to go once a year so keep me posted if you ever need crew for another chum run.
