Yankee Capts Cod trip out of Glouchester Mass with my dad and two brothers - 1983. Dave Marciano from Wicked Tuna was likely mate on this trip.

22 lb cod - lost the pool to a 40 lb Hake caught on the last drop of a 3 day trip :unsure:.

Added a 14 lb cod as well.

Was a great trip. Had whales around the boat including a minke whale right next to the boat. Almost got crushed by a freighter in the thick fog the first morning out.

Another Yankee Capts trip out of Key West FL in 1985. Also a 72 hour trip. Was a multispecies deal for sure. Could fish anytime the boat stopped day or night.

Red Grouper - was my largest fish of the trip.

One of many yellowtail snapper.

I always love it when you hook something and everyone is trying to guess what it is. I got a solid bite and set the hook on something heavy. Everyone was asking how was the fight. I kept saying that it felt like a rock. "must be a black.. big margate… AJ..., etc"

Turned out that I was right :slow:

My buddy and I sold the fish at the dock and it covered the cost of the trip as well as having some fun money in our pockets. Oh before we left we ordered Dominoes and had them deliver to the boat :D.

Cool thread. This was Lil bro, big sis and me with dutch boy bowl cut @1977.  Taken at the Mizzou geology camp somewhere in Colorado. You can see Dad started us out strong!  Loved those cheap plastic waders and tennis shoes.  Lost lil bro in 2003 but me and sis are still fishing fools to this day.  Dad, now 97, fished with us in trout streams until two years ago. We are blessed
