Took off the a.m. with my fishing partner Dave Jackson and headed for the B’fly. The skipper on the “Sea Eagle” provided me with some numbers just n/e of the b’fly yesterday (thanks again).
We stopped on a paddy and picked up on 5 quality (18-30lb) yellowtails.
We had doubles and singles (albies) on the troll all along the n/e area of the b’fly, all total, 12 fish.
My new Mercury DTI Sterndrive diesel, Dennis and his staff at AMS installed ran perfect. I put over 21 hours on her this weekend without any problems.
Here’s the best part of this post: I ran 145 miles today, and only used 19.62 gallons of diesel ($1.37 per gallon) that averages out to 7.39 miles per gallon!!! This is a 22′ cuddy with a pacific yacht tuna tower.
Before the repower I got 1.5 MPG on gas with 90 mile range. Thanks again Dennis, and special thanks to Bryan (get well soon) at Affordable Marine Service.
