Never too late for a testimonial for Thursday, June 27. When Capt. Billy calls the night before and says the water will be choppy and then choppier, this means, in rookie landlubber terms, 4ft to 8ft swells. WHAT A RIDE, but with a limit of 18 Yellow fin tuna and 3 Mahi it was great. If it were not for capt. Billy's expert boatman-ship and fish finding skills we could not have accomplished this great catch. Sorry for 1st mate Steve, having to put up with us rookies but what a great job he did. By the end of the day the guy's all knew it was a day they would never forget.. I did my homework on the Oregon Inlet Fleet and I could not have picked a better boat. The Tuna Fever is the only way to go....thanks to Capt. Billy & Steve! Thanks again for a great fishing trip!! Tom Smith and group PS Of course this great trip could never have gone right without the guidance and help of Ms Heather....Thanks
