Sounds like the RR3 had a decent trip :D, 20 Cows is good fishing.

Anyways, pretty sure they went "long" for Cows which is 10+ days and usually 12-15.

Generally smaller models on a 5 day, BUT, Pacific BFT get as giant as anywhere so you never, ever know. :D

Here's hoping you guys get into tonnage!


best

It was quite impressive to say the least... They left the RSW fish for last and it gave the boat a deep portside list and it was low tide and the Rooster was nearly dragging bottom. They also quit fishing 1 day early as the boat was full
