NOOB question.....I realize a lot will change between now and June, but how far south could we expect to travel on a 3 day? We are scheduled to depart June 22 at 1100 hours and return June 25 at 0600 hours....Bill

It all depends on what's biting. We could travel 300 miles south, fish a red hot bite for a few hours, then turn right around and head home.

A few years ago on the SoA, the trip before mine did what I mentioned above. I think it was a 5-Day and they ran all the way to The Ridge, fished for half a day, filled close to their limits, then turned around and went home. You never know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably far enough south to get into the BFT.

I chartered the SOA for 20 years strait several years ago. I in fact asked Mike that exact question one time on my charter. I sort of put it like this, "in a normal year how far from port would you travel on our 3 day if you had to?" Mike said about 170 from port would be in that time frame.

Now let me say this, we went to the Lupe twice on that 3 dayer in the 20 years I had it. Was it the norm as a choice? Heck no, but we did it. At the island at around 10 am, anchor around 11 am and headed back to home close to sunset. Not a lot of fishing time but on my charter we really didn't have another option at the time.

Several years we went to the dumper or the 60 mile bank which is way closer to the point, so like what was said it depends where the fish that you want to catch are. The long runs were mostly in the albacore days and my charter opted to chase BFT if any were around. In the over warm El Nino years where all the bait left and none where around were the years we ran to Guadalupe Island for YFT.
