    55 miles to the southeast of Indian River Inlet, Delaware for some yellowfin tuna action, in about 30 fathoms. The old girl did great!

    She was fairly heavily loaded for the 30 hour, overnight trip but as always, it was a very economical trip at about 70 gallons of gas through the new 5.7 PCM Excalibur 343. This was 110 miles of "cruising" and about 20 miles of trolling at 6 knots. The return trip was not fun with almost zero visibility in the fog that set in overnight. Thank goodness for radar and glad it wasn't rough!

    The next weekend, back to the Chesapeake Bay relaxing at the beach with the wife and kids! Very versatile boat!

    Sounds like you had a great trip. Yellow fins are always great.

    Congrats on the great trip! Glad you found a pretty good weather opening for it (not including the fog, lol)
