1.5 Day Offshore Trip

Recommended Posts

Dramamine didn't work the two times I used it. I used the patch and it worked better then I bought Scopace in pill form and it worked even better adn I still have a few but it isn't made anymore. On our 2.5 day over the 4th I put the patch on in the morning after I got out of the shower and then we drove to SD and boarded the boat at 6PM.

The patch last 72 hours and I was fine but the seas were relatively calm the whole trip with just a few 6' rollers in the afternoon when the wind picked up but it laid down by about 6PM.

Pretty much the same for our trip. A handful of us take it serious and would love to target the bigger fish but it’s a company outing for our foremen and supervisors so we’re going to be opportunistic and go for any good bite. It sounds like it’s shaping up to be epic either way! 

You hiring? Our company outing is usually Christmas lunch at Rositas. LOL

I do it when needed since the other guys at work still really figured out how to bend conduit but I'm a "Controls" guy  since 81 although I still do conduit on and off and the occasional VFD swap out when I'm not bidding or running jobs, doing drawings and submittals  or doing field work since we are always a man down.

Picked up the scopolamine patches today 

The only problem I see with the patch is they will fall off due to high humidity, sweat, etc.  A bandaid or some type of tape to keep them on is prudent.

I think the boat charged us close to $1 a pound which considering it takes a mate about a minute to do a 20# fish so when you do the math it adds up pretty quick, plus they want a tip on top of that.

Thats a nice "problem" to have.  Kinda like a taxidermy bill.

So if you catch two 20lb tunas it costs $40 to clean them both ?

Most of the time its $5-10 a fish on tunas, yellowtail, and dorado.  $10 is for the big fish, like 30# or more.  I've never been charged a per# price.  You also have the option to take them whole to a processor like Marios and let them do it all for a per # price.  Thats around a buck a #.

a point to remember about processing-the weight they charge you for is the whole fish in the round-the finished product is only 33% to 40% of that.

safeway has just gorgeous ahi steaks all year round for $9.99/lb.  i don't think i ever brought tuna steaks home to Arizona for less than a combined $20.00/lb.   and if you are not into seafood no cleaning charges-somebody will take every pelagic fish you want to give away.  the crew usually sells the skipjack for lobster and crab bait.  and it doesn't cost anything to donate tuna to the galley.
