Sure looked like a lot of fun. Eat, fish, eat, fish, eat, fish. Not a bad way to spend your time with buddies.

Alan,

Thanks for taking the time to document your trip.  I really enjoyed the report.  Those of us who have never been on a long range trip enjoy living vicariously.

Its part of the unwinding process Doc. Wink
I'm in the same boat as you. Smiley
I counted at least 12 guys that got bonked in the head by your rods Alan! Grin
I guess with most of the gear is yours, you can grab a different rod for every fish! Cheesy

Holy cow.  Organized kaos at it's best.  Those Deckies really work hard.

12 pounds of drag means you have a 12 pound weight free-hanging from the end of your rod and you have to walk around a deck.   and then you have to have someone tugging on it all the time!  it's also hard when some of the older guys don't quite move fast enough.  it gets crazy pretty quick!

Nice, I need to figure out how to do another 15 day trip.  Anyone want to but a bunch of sheep?
