    I have always wanted to go deep sea fishing. My wife surprised me with a chartered 5 hour fishing trip for my bday this weekend. She rented the whole boat so it will just be us. The Albacore Tuna are running right now. I had hoped for Blue Fin but they tell me it is the wrong time of year.
    I'll post some pics next week.

    Well that's an area lots of fishermen never get to for sport fishing. Have a great time. Post photos when you get back.

    Happy Birthday @Minuteman. That is quite a lovely gift that your wife gave to you. It is the perfect gift and a memory maker also. Good luck!

    Actually the Adana Trough is a very popular area for sport fishermen. It is supposed to be one of the best spots in the world for tuna. And it is literally in my backyard. I lived in Calfornia for years and never got a chance to go. So I'm not going to waste the opportunity now.

    Had a great day. Fish weren't biting but the worst day fishing is better than the best day working! Drank beer, smoked cigars and enjoyed the scenery.
