Default overnight at the rigs 12/14/14

Left out Saturday around noon had a crew of five plan was to catch bait and take off. Bait was hard to find so started at the petronius. The water looked good water temperature 72 degrees but no decent marks moved on to marlin the drill ship champion with no sign of yellowfin. So by dark we found our best marks of blackfin at the champion drill ship only problem is they wanted to stay down at 180 take 210 feet! We tried chumming but the did not come up so didn't take long for our crew to get tired and sleep! Which left me and Mike jigging all night long to fill up the box.The seas were horrible soaking wet big swells .We were able to try some deep dropping for the first time was able to get a decent snowy. And some strange looking creatures. Was suprised when I pulled up a huge redsnapper. In 450ft of water.All in all a decent trip probably the last before spring so glad to get some fresh tuna.

Way to stay after it while the sleepy heads abandoned their post.

Those overniters can be brutal!

Keep on keeping on the deep drop, huge bonus to top off the box with Yellow edge, tiles and snowies after a tuna smack down!

Man you guys are hardcore! We were at Maersk Developer in a 54 Viking and I thought the seas uncomfortable. Glad you had fun and stayed safe. Yellowfin are quite unpredictable, there one weekend and not the next.
