Maximum Gusto crew pushed off to the edge of the Wilmington Canyon in search of tuna. We only found swordfish, mahi and tilefish, but the trip was a success and everyone on board had a good time!
We decided to take the boat down to Hatteras for a week’s vacation. Andi, Karl and I ran the boat down and back stopping at Rudee inlet in Virginia Beach to get fuel and overnight. Overall, we had a good trip but it was not what we expected. On the negative side, we went […]
The tuna have finally arrived at our canyons about 3-4 weeks later than the last few years.
