Default LF1 w/knowledge/fuel money for rigs/tuna/dive/spearfish

Looking for 1 (maybe 2) knowledgable about tuna fishing to join me and a friend on a tuna trip next week or weekend. Usually spearfish w/scuba on the wrecks/reefs and such but want to run to rigs and spearfish....while there might as well try the tuna :-)

Need someone to help with fuel and teach us about equipment needed, bait (where and how), etc.

We will be shooting fish off the rig! :-)

Plan to leave out of Sherman Cove or....maybe Orange Beach? Boat is 25ft Cat

Thanks,
William

Clay-DOH on the GCFC or Fenderbender here might be able to help. Keep in mind the distance to the rigs and the fact there are a lot of sharks there- most of the tuna activity comes very early morning or dusk or at night

Default Rig trip

Thanks for the help. I think distance is the FIRST thing to consider when talking rig trips out of Pensacola It sucks but is what we got. That being said I have the range on boat to get out there....not sure I want to be trolling all day but the trip by itself isnt a problem.

Sharks I can deal with.....seems like we run into them on nearly every dive.....and have means to help control the situation if they get rambunctious.

Thanks,
William

Default boat

My boat is a 25 foot center console catamaran with twin 200 Optimax, I cruise at about 36 and get about 1.8 miles per gallon with about 150 gallons on board. I only plan on going when the weather predicts 2 foot or less seas,even though the boat can take more, it's a fuel thing and comfort thing

Default yft

I am mostly after yft....and spearfishing the edge (on bottom where most life is)seems a little beyond my equipment/desires/comfort. :-).
