Hey guys here is one for you. We are currently running a 24' Topaz and we consistently fish up to 45 miles offshore only during good weather (large 2 day window). A typical trip consists of 4 hours running @ 21 knots and a 6 hour troll, we burn about 20 gallons of diesel. We are considering extending our trips to the edge (Dip and Hudson Canyon). I know many of you have smaller boats 28' and less. I was wondering how far from shore you are willing to go in a small boat in order to catch some Tuna. We have plenty of fuel and our boat is very seaworthy for a 24 footer. My crew is experienced and the boat has EPIRB and the necessary electronics. What do you think?
