Ok hooking a 1,000lb marlin is difficult but they are there,,,,  Wink hooking a 600to800lb gothic grouper is easy in Florida,,,,, Undecided it's a hole different ball game,,,, Shocked it's not like bluefin the fight is quicker but harder it's so intense,,,,,,,, Grin

You're forgetting swordfish, quite comparible to tuna I'm sure.

im  no  expert  but  i  would  not  compare  a  swordfish  to  a  tuna.  swords  are  mean  and  super  strong  with  stamina. my  last  one  at  160-170  took  a  lot  more  effort  then  my  two  cows  combined,  and  that  was  with  young  experienced  mate  doin  most  of  the  work on  sword.  trust  me  one  175  will  kick  your  butt  into  next  tuesday and  then  come  back  and  do  it  again.

Would be interested in a trip on the east coast as well, have been contemplating doing a multi-day tropical fishing trip out that way for a while now. Here are a few relevant headboat operations if anyone is wondering:

The Yankee capts pully ridge trip is a bucket list trip .They don't call it Jurassic park for nothing. A bottom fisherman's smorgasbord.

I'd be interested in one of these trips. Key West (Yankeecapts) is a 700 mile drive for me vs only 300 for the Gulf Star at Tarpon Springs. Marco Island (American Patriot) is 500 miles. I've fished the Middle Grounds but never fished Pulley Ridge. 2 or 3+ day trips would be my preference. I'm booked up for 2021 with 3 west coast trips planned. But 2022 is open.

For the Yankee capts reservations will need to be made now for next year, they fill up fast. I don't know Capt Greg well enough to make a call or speak for him but he might be receptive to a AT trip . He does a lot of private charters and sponsored charters that book individually.  Especially if its a mid week trip. The weekend trips fastest seem to fill up the fastest.l. The only drawback to a true pulley ridge trip is a electric reel is desirable for the daytime fishing. He usually fishes 600-900ft during the day. A Diawa tanacom 1000 is the reel of choice. They do have pully ridge lite trips where electric reels are not welcome.  They are primarily slow pitch jigging  nirvana and dead bait drift fishing trips. I've never fished the lite trips but hear they do very well.

Would be happy to get something on the books for next year at this point. I would likely lean toward a capts trip but do not have a strong preference for them vs the viking Gulfstar. I think both operations book out pretty far (especially for open grouper or snapper seasons). For work reasons I would prefer a trip that spans weekend days. What time of year were people thinking?

Look forward to fishing with you all again!

I wanna apologize for throwing an idea out there and then doing nothing to manage it.

It sounded like a good idea, which is why I threw It out there, but having literally zero experience offshore fishing means I don't know a damn thing about picking a good one or what orchestrating such a trip entails. As such I'm kinda useless here.

Indeed, that's the idea. But in terms of the who where and when, I got nothing.

It annoys me that my more corporate brother, who owns no tackle whatsoever, and doesnt do any other fishing at all, has been on a bunch of deep sea trips with clients etc. And he rubs it in.

At least I can fire back by asking if he's ever baited his own hook, but the annoyance remains.

I'm in Philadelphia, but would consider joining an Ohana Florida charter if I could get a cheap flight.   Grin

I would really love to do something like a Yankee Capts 3 day, but alas, given my tendency towards very bad motion sickness, it's a very bad idea for me. 3 days in even mildly rough water would kill me! I can handle a day trip on a calm day, otherwise it's hurlin' time. What a curse for someone who loves the ocean so much.  Sad
