Good luck, have fun and be safe.

Great pics! What general area ( like bay ) do you clam?

Got my juices going to get out, though it will be a while for me yet.

Nice, I didn't know you had a yak. What size is that Revo?

I really have to get back to using mine or put it up for sale. Definitely, miss fishing from it.

Spent the back bay opener down in the OBX doing some giant tuna fishing.

It's on fire right now, 2/3 days we had our fish hooked up in less than 30 minutes (only allowed 1 per day).

101" - 452#
105" - 436#
90" - forgot the exact weight but in the mid 200s

1 fish per vessel. They usually head in after the catch ro get the top $$$$ on the fresh fish.

Commercial limit is 1 per boat this year down there. All 3 fish shipped to Japan, the 436# sold for 8800 yen/kilo which is $38/lb. $16,500 fish

Wow John, that's a nice $$$$.
How does the money split out ?
Do you get any share of it ?
