Not sure if you saw smitty's post, but he said to touch base with him for some scallop guts for the trip, definitely reach out to him! :up:


cool thanks for the reminder Matt. I've never used scallop guts before, what is the magic there?

No idea, but I'd imagine they love them. smitty definitely recommended them for a reason.
If they don't work, you can always throw some sauce on them and have em for lunch! :D

Hey Tom, I personally have been involved where one brother screwed the other out of customers. Never went on the Big J after that.

Just start reading the new post over there and yes it seems you can't voice your opinion again, Tom.

I have never fish with Tom at all, I have ask for advice him for advice on reloading etc.. I think Tom was putting up a post that explain his opinion on what he faced.. However , it does seem like once you due that on certain sites.. Especially against certain operations .. It's a quick red flag..

Good luck next week Tom .. Hope weather allows you go..

Sorry for keeping all you guys in suspense lol. I had a reservation on a large, well-known headboat and showed up at the appointed time and didnt like what I was greeted with. In my opinion the boat seemed considerably overbooked relative to the limit stated on the boat's website. (an observation the Captain strongly denied) It was extremely challenging to even pass up the walkways given the number of coolers that were everywhere. I could only find one area that had two open rodholders, and that was next to the grimy, smelly bait station. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I went into the cabin and there were a bunch of people, including some crew members, smoking. I have an acute sensitivity to second hand smoke and my only alternative to breathing it would have been to remain in 15-20 degree weather for nineteen hours, something I wasnt willing to do. I quickly picked up all my gear and left the boat, making a post about my disappointing experience shortly thereafter.

Alot of people then chimed in on the post, recounting similar situations. A number of others came on and objected to my voicing grievances without having spoken to the captain. When the boat returned to port the following evening the captain proceeded to vociferously claim that I was nothing but a liar and that all my claims were false. I didnt appreciate him trying to discredit my by attacking me personally and things proceeded to get uglier and uglier.

Eventually, Gerry Z. pulled the initial thread and then allowed another to be started. He was in a difficult situation obviously and caught between a paying sponsor from whom he makes a lot of money that wanted the threads pulled and a lot of the general membership that objected to my silencing and was accusing him of censorship. During the two days the drama went on I had to empty out my PM mailbox twice, as it was filled from people sending me PMs and recounting horror stories they had experienced on the boat.

At the end of the day I am extremely pleased to not have sailed with them because I know I would have been miserable and there's a decent chance I would have lost some gear to thieves. I am much more appreciative now of the different caliber/class of the boats and operations we have to choose from here in this area. I have mixed feelings about whether or not I was unfair by airing my grievances on a public forum before giving management a heads up, though I think that feedback and word of mouth is really all that we, as consumers, have at our disposal to keep operators honest.

So that is it in a nutshell!

Joe, Thanks much for the well wishes - I'm confident I'll knock 'em dead on the Voyager again if I'm able to get out!

I went on an 18 hour trip on the same boat about five years ago and had about the same experience. The previous trip was cancelled and quite a few were allowed to go on the next trip regardless of the "limited fares" advertised. I suppose that was the solution to giving refunds. While it was crowded I will say the guys I fished between were good fisherman and I had no issues with that. The smoke in the cabin was a little rough for me, too.
