I have not been on a one day trip on that boat because it is just too far for me to drive for just one day of fishing. However, I am sure that you will not be disappointed with the fishing. From what I understand, those trips are open bottom fishing so bring jigs in the 12 - 24 ounce range and fish a large curly tail teaser above the jig. You'll have much less aggrevation from the doggies if you use jigs instead of bait. Let us know how you do.
