brendan, want to be my travel buddy for puerto vallarta?  i should be able to get us a 2-for-1 companion flight on alaska airlines.  i already have your passport info to book a flight. 
It's a done deal. Got confirmation from Danny that the Mar 19-23 trip on the Marla IV is OURS and the deposit has been sent. We just need to let him know what time everybody will be at the Oxxo at PVR so they can pick us up.
It takes a whole lot of this to hurt me!
Brendan, he just wants a travel buddy to help him tote all his STUFF!  Grin
Merry Christmas

I'll probably take the Delta flight out of Jacksonville that arrives PVR at 12:10 and departs at 1 PM the 23rd. It's actually cheaper, and less hassle with traffic and TSA, for me to drive to JAX and take a JAX-ATL-PVR flight than it is to drive to ATL and take the same direct flight. Go figure!
I'll keep a cold barley pop waiting for you at the Oxxo!

Hey Mike
The timing may not work for me, as the October is end of the year for me at work.  Still trying to figure something out though.

Now that we have worked out the details of our Cedros trip in September, I need to focus on the PV trip coming up in 5 weeks (19-23 March)
Note: we probably ought to start a new topic for this trip.
Here's what I have arranged so far.
I'm arrive in PVR at 12:10 PM on Delta 397
I'll bring about 250 vacuum bags. That should be enough for everybody.
I'll only bring one 50 qt cooler. I still have plenty of tuna in the freezer from my 2 December trips. If we catch some pargo or calico, I'd like to bring some of those back. The wife likes those; tuna, not so much. I need some of you "chefs" to give me some pointers on searing tuna steaks.
I'm not bringing any tackle. Alan is bringing me a new blue Mak 20 reel to christen on a cow (hopefully).
A quick stop at the Mega Mart for a little Don Julio and I'm good to go.
I paid a $700 deposit, or $175 each. Alan and I have reconciled his part of the deposit.
My flight on the 23rd departs at 1:00 PM. Delta 398
Darn. I have 4 Pacific fishing trips planned for 2018. I ought to go ahead and move out West.

For searing yellowfin try this:
Set up the burner for a turkey fryer outside and get a large cast iron skillet. Turn the burner on high and leave the skillet on it for about 15 minutes to get it hot.
Melt a cube of butter and dip the tuna steaks in it so there's a thick coat on it, then dredge it in your favorite blackening spice mix. You should have a thick crust of spice on it. Drop them in the skillet, stand back a bit because it might flame up.
Cook about a minute or 2 (depending on thickness) a side so it's rare like a steak
Some good eating right there!
