JRI put on another epic trip! Very good Guadalupe tuna fishing for fish in the 120 to 147-lb range. Everybody got in on the action. Cannot say enough about the quality of these fish, they put all the gear to the test. It was incredible how well our Penn Fathom 40 2-speeds are performing. We have them loaded […]

Henke Family Charter

The Henke Family Charter pulled it together, literally, by sharing the battle to boat 3 COWS at 204, 215, and a monster 248. Not bad for Bob at 90 plus years young. Great job by Captain Cameron and Crew.
