Fished the Viking FiveStar on a 48 hr. tuna/sword trip. We did well but I wanted to thank Capt.. Neil (again) for my Maximizer, now about 7 or 8 years old. Got it primarily as a fluke rod but she's handled blackfish, by-catch blues, porgies and sea bass while fluking and now we add mahi's to the list. No pics but had my limit of 6 to around 10-12 lbs on some drops 70 miles out.

Great trip for our target fish - 6 bigeyes, 24 yellowfins, short sword released and 60-70 lb white marlin also released. Here's a pic of the marlin which I caught on Trophy Tackle pink squid jig. Surprised the hell out of me with its first jump - had no idea what it was until then. Second pic of some of our bigeyes.

Thanks fellas. So nice to hear from my old buddies Joe, Ed, Freddy and Eddie. This was a trip I'll always remember; such a variety of sea life and great catches.

Hope you guys are well and it would be great to see you guys before too long. I know I'll be on the back-to-back Memorial Day fluke charters in Port Jeff. Hope you all can make it.

Best, Bill
