Default October starts out with a bang!! A bang in the motor!

have you ever had a plan in your head, a map of what you think will happen and turns out to be all wrong??? Happens to me all of the time! Happened again this month!

I have been planning my return to fishing after being off for a few months due to the accident! Capt Gray and I found this awesome boat, its a 2010 demo with under 500 hours, got a decent deal! While we are waiting on the paperwork to get done, I start booking trips, books start looking damn good, most trips I have ever had on the books in October. October gets near and the wind started to blow, we have to cancel several trips! I spoke to a few captains, found out a few big fish have been caught, getting pumped up now! October 1st, Capt Gray and I make a trip, cant find one tuna. We did find some nice jacks so it wasnt the end of the world but not the trip we had hoped for! The next week, 3 trips on the books, cancel every one of them due to weather!

Take the time off to install a killer speaker system in the boat, happy!! Looking forward to fishing 11 days in a row starting October 12th, cant wait! Very good customers on the boat, radio sounds good, head out, fish the morning behind the boats, cant even find bait fish, wow, not good!! Head to medusa to try our luck, as I am slowing down at medusa I hear a noise in the motor, almost new motors, what can it be?? Blown Powerhead, yeah, didnt see that coming! Did I mention new motors?

On the way back at a very slow 9 mph, stop at a couple of rigs to atleast pick up a few jacks, yeah right, the cudas were starving, couldnt get one bait down, not even a jig! Now what? Crank up the tunes, customers crack open a beer, grab a few snacks, have a good time! Did I mention a slow ride??

Now, try to move customers around, reschedule some, weather wouldnt allow for most trips anyway, looks like we will get the boat back in time for weather break!! Nope! Parts delay? Really?? Figured! Thanks to captain Lee McLean, I was able to fish Saturday with Paul Myers crew from Salty Cajun, awesome guys!

Saturday we try for tuna, get things going, blackfin show up, catch 7, waiting for a big yellow to show, run low on bait, finally swap a blackfin for some chum, manage to piss off half of the Venice Fleet because we got too much bait, catch one more blackfin and thats a rap! Fish took off! Capt Gray and I cant believe with this awesome water, this bait and this hell of a crew that the fish would leave us but they did! In an effort to fill the box, we head off to find some amberjack and I have to admit, it was prob the best Jack fishing I have ever seen! We sent the baits down and doubled up 3 times in a row! Never lost a weight, never lost a fish. They were all big fish, gave the guys the fight they were looking for and really saved the trip. On the way back we stopped to try to find a few mangroves with no luck and took it to the barn! The best part about it is Paul is brave enough to come back and fish with us next saturday! Not sure if he knows that capt Gray wont be fishing with me this time so they wont be able to gang up on me and crack wellhead jokes and talk about my driving!

Back to my point! I had a lot of plans for October! I had visions of huge yellowfin everywhere, running a ton of trips in the new boat but as you can see, plans can change fast! Sometimes you just have to roll with it, cant change it, dont worry about it and just go have fun!

I think I start back fishing on the 27th. We hope to bring you reports of huge yellowfin, you bet your donkey we will give it our all but either way, I will let you know what we find!

I do think we will get a little late run on tuna! I believe one of the problems have been the rough seas and the boat not being able to stay out there, if the boats stay out all week this week, I think it will be on.

We are open most of the first 2 weeks of November! If you are looking for an adventure, its never a dull moment around us! We will do what we can to put you on fish, the only guarantee that we can make is, you will have a few good laughs! Fish are overrated anyway!!

Be safe out there! We hope to see you on the water! We may or may not be in our boat!

Want to remind you that you can see every trips report and pictures at

I promise you that we post every trip, no matter if we catch or not! You get to see every report and pics from EVERY TRIP!

Damn the luck bro! I have a ton of respect for you and all the other offshore capts. Alot of people don't have a clue how much work and pressure you guys are under. Keep your head up bro it will get better. Wish I could have made the trip....maybe another trip in feb. Will be hard to top that popper bite,that is da bomb right there. Tim looks like he is about to blow chunks in that first pic...LOL

Enjoyed the trip as always Josh. We may not have caught as many as last time but I had just as much fun. I also want to thank you for not being the captain says well its 2 o'clock time to go in regardless of what's in the box.

I never saw you drink any water. It was either a can or a glass with something else in it.
