Yankee Capts 2018 trip reservatios

Postby cudaman » Tue Jan 02, 2018 3:53 pm

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Alright people! It's time to start planning for the next one!

The date will be July 12th to July 15th 2018. Boat departs at 8pm and comes back by noon on Sunday just like last year. Serious answers please. Sorry if you cannot make it. No worries, once this trip is done we can plan another. You might regret not fishing on this trip.

The Cost is $660 per person. Capped at 19.
This is still an awesome rate in comparison with the regular Halfway Ledge price!
Don't forget to save for the tip 15% to 20% is good, you can expect very hard working mates that do not fish during the trip.

I will need your deposits by March 2nd 2018. Deposit is $330 the rest I will need it by June 15th 2018.
You can pay the trip in full if you wish to do so.

PM on this site is very limited so please email me at the email below for my paypal information. Paypal gift please if not then add 4%. Please ensure to write your name, spot preferred, and bunk preferred. First Come First served. If you were on the previous trip please choose the same bunk you had. You pay deposit first, you choose first. Once all that say that will go have paid deposits, I will open the trip to others.

I understand that sometimes people have emergencies and might need to cancel. I will allow cancellations until May 30th. This will give me time to look for a replacement. If you need to cancel after May then you will need to find your own replacement or you will lose your deposit.


Plan A: Where? Halfway Ridge, grouper fishing, snapper and Tuna hunting, this is not a deep drop trip.
Plan B: If winds do not cooperate during that week we will fish in Dry Tortugas

Here is what to know about Halfway Ridge from Captain Greg:
“Over the last 24 months, it has become apparent to me that we’re passing over some very rich areas that show great promise. In particular is a stretch of broken bottom approximately 25 miles beyond the Dry Tortugas. I have been driving over this area extensively and I’m extremely happy with what I have seen. In fact, unbeknownst to passengers we’ve even made a few exploratory drops along this ridge and have seen an excellent showing of black and scamp grouper, large yellow-eye and mutton snapper.”

If by now some have not gotten it yet:
This is just like any Party Boat drifting; Using about 10 ounces with bait. Braid is best to drift. You need at least 300 yards of 50lb braid or 60lb braid.
If you want to vertical jig like I will, this is an amazing opportunity to do so. There are plenty quality fish here and all will get a chance at some trophy fish. Remember the Black Groupers from Last year? Ok, then you know.

Here is additional info:
The boat has gear rentals for $20, the hooks and leader are free to use while on the trip (Shimano 20/40 TLD reel with a 8 foot mutton rod filled with 50 lb. High Seas mono)

By the way the boat has AC and the head is by the transom on both sides behind the Galley. One of them has a shower.
If you do not like heat, you can fish during the night and sleep at noon's hot hour.
You do not have to worry about the heat so much. Just make sure you hydrate and drink less beer. Yes, drinking is ok.
You can bring your 100 qt coolers and fill them with ice for your drinks and extra food. You can bring a bait cooler. The boat provides squid.

Here is the boat food menu information http://www.yankeecapts.com/galley.php

1.) Gear? A heavy mutton rod works fine. Pier rods, bridge rods will work. Reels with low 4:1 gear are great 6:1 gear will also work but are not best. Look here for additional recommendations:

Minimum Gear
- 2 bottom rods and 1 top water rod would be the minimum you should take.
- 25 of each: 3/0, 5/0, 7/0 hooks
- file to sharpen hooks
- Wire for Kingfish rigs (to catch tunas or wahoo at night)
- 20 #1 Barrel Swivels
- 30 lb. And 50 lb Leader material
- 10 each 8 ounce and 10 ounce egg sinkers
- 2 12 ounce and two 16 ounce bank sinkers

Look for more at the Yankee Capts site: http://www.yankeecapts.com/tackle.php

2.) I recommend you sleep on the way out, in between moves, right after the morning bite until noon hours, and on the way back.

3.) Bait, any oily bait will work, as Fishingfool and PhishingPhanatic suggested fresh bait is key, no need for gogs, but it's always good to bring some. Kingfish and macks store well in the freezer (wrap them in cellophane). They work great.

4.) Trolling is allowed, but the boat will not stop for dinks. I suggest the biggest and strongest reel you may have.
