        I just want to start off saying that, that was the trip of a life time. I have been fishing since i was three years old and that was the best action I have ever had. The whole group Jesse, Marie, Chris, Marc and Carson are still seeing tuna flying over gunwhale everytime we close our eyes.
 The Boat. Beautiful machine through and through. Got us out there on the fish and the amout of room on the stern made it easy to handle those multiple hook ups you were getting us into. The cabin was very clean and comfortable even with the six of us in there.
  The Mate. Bert was spot on never missing a beat. Never missing the gaff on the fish. Keeping the hooks baited and even with 4 fish on at once not one tangle up the whole day. He's a cool guy and very knowlage. Truely a professional.
    The Skipper. Billy your Knowlage and experience kept us on the fish all day long. I couldn't believe that within minutes of setting the lines a reel was already screaming with that 107 lb beast on the other end. I fun just watchin my best bud crank that thing in. The experience we all had out on the water that day was a memory we wont't ever forget. From that school of monster bluefins rolling in the crest of that wave right behind the boat. To that massive pod of dolphins we all saw. There all images that are In our minds forever but nothing beats 18 nice sized yellowfin and that big hoss Jesse cranked in. We all went home with coolers full of meat and big ole smiles on our faces. Jesse and I are already planning our next trip. We cant wait to get back down there to fish with you again on Tuna Fever.
  Thanks Again,        Andrew
