Sea Adventure 80 departed again all trips are a Go For Sure! 

Biggest improvements are the tackle, and the skill of each and every angler.

You have to go to get better! The more you go the better you get!! 

Try and make 2 mini long range trips on the Sea Adventure 80 every month.

Assortment of small, medium, and large hooks

Talk to the crew about the small new steel leaders.

Rods and reels / bring them ALL the fish are gigantic, Jumbo, large, medium, and a few small ones.

If you own 4 or 5 two speed reels bring every one of them.

Make sure your reels are properly rigged with spectra backing. Fresh line / recently renewed.

If you can afford it change your line every other trip.


 Make sure you are paying attention to the fish size at the time “what’s sizes are boiling and showing around the boat. If guys are getting spooled or chewed off, quickly up size your gear. Remember small gear doesn’t work on bigger fish it won’t work period! Losing fish is a guarantee to losing the school.

Don’t loose fish!! The Crew will set your drags do not mess with the drags period.


Ask the crew about kite fishing, hook and hand bait and jig fish.

Remember the boat limit is 2 per person per day with a 3-day max on all trips durations.

We wish you the very best of luck and hope your fish of a life time is waiting for you on our next trip.

Thanks a lot Scott
