REPORT FROM THE INTREPID:

Tue. Dec. 11, 2007: Well here goes. With today being our last day down here it was absolutly a wonderful way to wrap things up. We drifted again all day and picked away at these brutes ending the day with 12 of the 120 to 190lb. grade and 8 from 210 to 260lbs. We also picked up another Tuna today that taped out at 381 lbs. Congrats go to Bill Falter for battling this GIANT Tuna and as you can imagine Bill is a very excited and happy fisherman. Bill hooked this fish on the kite after it exploded on a jumbo live squid pinned to a custom double hook leader using an 18/0 Mustad 39960D circle hook and a 12/0 7691 Stinger attached to a 600 lb. Softsteel leader. Backing that up with 200 lb. Jerry Brown hollow spectra on an AVET PRO EXW 50-2 ( thanks Harry, you rock ) and a Seeker G463XXXH Black Steel Grafite rod this fish really didn't stand a chance. Here is a shot and I'm sure there will be more later.

Yeah, they've a few close ones and reports of several that came loose which were reported to be monsters, so if they can get everything working together, they should land a 400 lber this season. That would be a sight to see! Go get 'em!!!

Yellow fever strikes fishing fanatics. The symptoms are spending $1,000's and going on long boat trips, reading this is another bad sign.

Yo CV.

I paid for my trip 12 months ago and have geared up for the past 12 months and have enjoyed the journey thus far. I am a passionate offshore LR fisherman who just happens to live in the state of Colorado.

Heck yeah I got the fever bad just like everything else that I am passionate about in my life.

I fly out 12/25 and board on the 26th for the tuna adventure of a lifetime on the RS.

Stay tune for updates.

SD, I know how you feel, I always plan my long range trips (8 days) at the beginning of the year and salavate until June when the boat leaves for the rocks and places they suspect there are fish 'o plenty! It gives you something to look forward to throughout the year and keeps you looking at the reports and buying MORE stuff for the trip. I wish you all the luck in the world in your upcoming adventure and maybe you'll be the one to catch the 400lber! Tight lines!
