Well, the last time I counted them up thru the fleet, there will be 19 300 pounders, or
" SUPER COWS " coming into the docks from the 10 dayers that went out Dec. 26th.
It's shaping up to be the best season yet on the Super Cows. I think so far the biggest in the last week is a 375 pounder.
The Boats that are kicking serious Booty are the Intrepid 1st, Excel 2nd and then the American Angler.
They are putting the wood to them.
The ones really suffering due to Karma the most is the Royal Star and the RRIII. Maybe they should ease up on their chest thumping and jabs at the new boats on the block??????
Good luck to the next bunch of people going out to the pasture. It looks like it is game on. OH YEA!
There are some absolute MONSTERS out there. One fish took 3 back up rigs and they never saw it.
I say that was the proverbial 400 pounder.
Why? Well, the biggest so far has been a 386.1 and landed without back up.
Then? Another fish took 3 back ups and was gone on a chew thru?????
I just read the Indy report this am and it sounds like they got into them yesterday as well. Dozen over 200 and 3 in the mid 300's.
I too have noticed the silence on the RR111 and Royal Star.
Hopefully this time next week we will be whacking them.
Hoggie! Hey there!
Hope that all is well with ewe.
What boatcha going on? The AA again.
The Star amnd the RRIII posted their reposrts and they're getting their asses handed to them.
I am in the same line of work as all the boats are. I just pursue Deer and Turkey.
The one thing that I personally NEVER do as it is a CARDINAL Sin in my business book.
I never rip other outfitter apart.
I pleade ignorance of them or I boast them. I'll even help a client book into another outfit if he'd like.
BUT! They always come back to me. I just let the clients figure things out on their own.
The money is their own hard earned dollars.
It doesn't bother me that they go else where.
I just can't believe how vocal some of the Boat owners are on themselves, while ripping the others apart in the same breath.
Now? The catching is beging to come full circle via the " Karma Express "
Hopefully the Tuna Gods will smile upon you next week and you'll hammer your first
" Super Cow "
MORE 300 POUNDERS !
Looks lie we have a tie between the Intrepid and the Excel with 6 300 pounders each coming in from the lower banks.
BUT! It still doesn't tie or break the record set by Steeve Loomis at Clarion in 1977.
10....300 pounders and 1 Man caught 3 in that EPIC, record setting night. The bite came at anchor in the shallows.
BUT we may have a shot this year of setting a new record. Good luck to you all.
Well, the Rooster better get it's head out of it's butt cause I'm on the next 15 day trip in a few days.
maybe they'll learn something about not bragging....
Not seeing much about any wahoo?????
Scott. If yer on the 15 dayer, then you'll most likely hot Alijos rocks first, needing yer 50 lb rig, then head out to the Hurricane Bank.
That's where they're knocking the piss out of the Cows. Rule #1...PUT EVERY MINUTE IN AT THE RAIL!
Those that do, get the fish. However, the RRIII will most likely spend quite a bit of time at the Cow Pasture on the Southern banks. Keep a couple of Wahoo rigs at the ready.
Have an absolute blast and let us all know how you do.
Also, what is yer real name so we can watch the reports on the RRIII?
Name:Scott Karkos . A good friend Cory Rogers is going with me. You'll more likely see his name in the highlights rather than mine as he seems to be able to catch and shoot anything.
If you read my name in their report, it probably is because I fell overboard.
I'd love to fish Alijos rocks.
I've got two 4/0's, Penn 500, TLDII-20, Saltiga 40, Penn 9/0, and a Penn Graph-Lite II-50.
Planning on using the Graph-lite for the cows, and the 9/0 with 100lb mono/wire for wahoo trolling/bottom stuff, Saltiga and 4/0 for throwing bombs, 4/0 for wahoo live bait. Am I off-base with this?
Sounds good. I'duse the Penn 50 wide or narrow 2 speeds for the heavy gear. Nothing less.
Yer basically good to go.
Have fun and we'll look forward to hearing your name in the reports.
Yes Tom I'm on the AA again. This will be my third trip with them and I just really like the whole crew on this boat. Haven't felt a need to try elsewhere.
I'm rigged and ready to rock and roll. I'm really hoping the tuna gods are smiling and those big mutha's are still there and ready to chew.
I'll give a report when I return. Take care.
Yer roght there about the AA having a great crew.
They are into the 300 pounders as well. So, maybe this will be your trip as well.
Goood luck Jeff.
why are not we out amounst them bro...pigticker. You got a broken leg and I got no job at the moment..how's that for karma?
keep up the posting
No job here as well.
I'll be out pounding the pavement in 2 weeks as well.
I am a licensed mariner and am looking to go back into the offshore Oil industry. My business is down until Sept.
I believe that I have enough sea time for a 100 ton Master's License or a Huge Mates ticket.
I am a sailor first and foremost. Maybe a can get a long range boat?????
Hell, I worked in the Bering Sea of Alaska for 2 full years setting drilling rigs from 1984-1986.
Man have I seen some seriously shitty weather.
60 foot seas and 100 plus MPH winds. I was on a 220 footer and we didn't think we were going to live thru one of these bad storms.
yekes bro..i was a rescue swimmer and am glad i never had to fetch your sorry *&%
Piggy, any work on push boats? I let my Z card expire when I got hurt but don't want it back.
Life's Tough, Then You Die
hahhahahaahha Yes I was in the water twice in the Bering Sea. Once, I jumped over board to save my own life. A piece of riser pipe broke loose on deck as we were pitching violently in the troff. The seas were in the 12-15 foot, not bad, but, when a 60 foot, 15 ton pipe is headed for you, there is nothing off limits to saving yer own bacon. We were stationed out of Dutch Harbor for those 2 years. There was actually 1 solo tree on that Island and there was a chain link fence around it.
The crew reacted immediately and I was back onboard in less than 60 seconds. Another time, I was washed over board and recovered quickly again.
We wore Stearn's one pice deck suits, that zip in the front. Very warm, not to bad in the drink.
My saving grace was 15 years of surfing so I really didn't worry about staying a float.
The one thing we never got over, was the
" Mayday, Man over baord " calls on the Single side band from the crabbers.
Never heard any of them recover the body. Very chilling.
Keta. I am deeply considering the push boats as they have a massive number of them here on the Mississippi river in Cape Girardeau. I just worry about their injury rates.
Our's offshore was crap. Nobody ever got hurt.
I have towed drilling rigs, 4,000 miles. I have set 45,000 lb anchors and buoys. None of us were ever hurt.
I just have to go to Memphis and update my " Z " card.
