Yankee capts 1-20-12

Sorry Guys for this late post i been dealing with my dog in the emergency room ,he has a very bad case of pancreatitis.
We almost lost him and thats like our kid. Well enough sad sorry and on with the fishing story. AAAAAAWWWW man it
was on like donkey kong.I brought my cousin down there and has oonly been to the tortugas 2 including this one. I
took him on his first trip on the FFF and caught 4 muttons. And now he stepped on the killing machine the YANKEE
CAPTS. and lets just say he had dinner plus his biggest mutton weighting at 20 pounds WooooWWW!!Now thats big it took
me many many trips to get one that big. I'm sure some of my lil tricks in my back pocket help:banana ...
Guys if you havn't been on one of these trips i would really try to make it. There is no where to catch these trophy
muttons in such quantities. Here are some pics


My cousin with his biggest mutton 20 lbS Wow!!!

    Hope your dog is doing good. Mine always seems to get sick when I am down there fishing.

    Only fitting and i would like to add that I love fishing the pulpit. :grin

    I had a great time and was happy to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones.

    A big thanks to Glenn for sharing one of his patches with me. Was not very rough but I was feeling like doodoo there when we first started fishing.

    As always Greg and Matt put us on the fish and the boys worked the decks. I need to teach Josh how to take a picture though (see below.) Overall they made my trip more enjoyable (as the plaque says.) Molly is still walking around with her #8 fishtags Chad gave before we left the dock.


    Great job in the galley Joe!

    My first fish was a best for me, this nice black. My Boga said 28, the fish guy at the dock said 24. I am going with 26.

    I caught it on a speedo chunk Bobby shared with me. I payed the good bait karma forward and shared some fresh flyers with some of the newbies as I caught them. There were a bunch of first time mutton catchers on this trip. One guy caught a 20+lb mutton on a "Google" eye Bobby gave him.


    I did not put my first mutton in the box until Saturday afternoon and ended with 18. This was one of my largest. Notice the legal size Jarbas in the background.

    Back to the dock and re-united with my girls! Always the best part of my trip, sharing all the stories and showing them my fish.

    My "BallyHoop" catcher! Can't wait for her little brother to join the fray.

    Bobby edged me out on big fish, but I still think mine looks bigger!

    Again, notice the legal size Jarbas in the background!

    Thanks for the fun.

    Hope to make it down with my Dad before the season ends.

    Your Black does looks bigger, did it empty its content on the way up too quickly, Hehe? Hate that mutton drought when the gang is hauling and you have to wait your turn, I shared your pain on my last trip. Great pay-off on the home run.

    Simple trick to reduce being seasick. Eat apples before the trip and while on board. I always eat 1 the day before and the day of the trip.. Rough seas did get me once,but only for about an hour. After that,slaughtered the tails and got a couple of smaller muttons. Diesel fumes off the stern are known for making you feel worse,so steer clear.
    "Thelma,Louise,Snookmistress" and another "Doll-Phin" will hopefully have muttons on ice next weekend on YC!!! I'm in the process of getting Louise back on the Forum. Got set up as Doll-phin 1st.
    Tight lines!.....and blood on the gaff.

    Bananas work even better, just make sure to bring a few in your cooler.

    Guys, for sea sickness I use the patch. Although you have to have a prescription to get them they are well worth it. When I get sick it is so bad that I completely pass out. I've suffered from this since I was a kid. Now every time that I go on the YC or any other boat for that matter I put on the patch. It could be 30 ft. seas out there and nothing happens.

    For those that get sea sick get the patch. Nothing is worse than getting sea sick on a two or three day charter and know that you are not coming back in until the trip is over.

    Next time anyone passes thru Canada, you can get the patch at Costco/Pharmacy, no prescription needed for under $10 for box of 2. Cheapest Offshore insurance you can take, sometimes, all it takes is tying a bunch of rigs at sea and you get the feeling all is not well and start gulping for fresh air and the horizon.
  • FlagtailsFlagtails Posts: 576 Officer
    Yeah. Been there done that! When I get sick its all over nothing but firm footing cures it for me. But when I put that patch on, no problem.
