HelenH Canyon Trip 2012

Never too early to start thinking and planning the next trip in Sept 2012. Similar weekend to '11 would be 8th/9th, weekend right after Labor Day). Last time was a 2 day trip, leave Hyannis 7AM Sat and return 5PM Sunday. The official HelenH schedule for the 2012 is not yet posted.

Cape Cod Fishing Boat | Deep Sea Fishing | Cod Fishing MA

Here's a summary of last year's trip (you might even see a few SB'ers):

Fabulous 2 Day Tuna Trip | Helen H Fleet

Someone to be unnamed suggested a 3 day trip this year? Should we make this a "sticky"?

You can reserve bunks?

Don't forget there is a limit of three yellowfins a man, so a three day trip might be too long.

I lost a probable sword last time I was out, so I'd be plenty happy taking a few yellows on troll/jig and dropping squids for swords all night . I think two nights would be best, at least for me- just imo.

The way they worked it last year: 3 yellowfin/day/man was the quota. Don't forget mahi, albacore and wahoo.

For me it might take 3 days to get 3 yellows!

Niko do you mean one night (2 day) or two nights (3 day)? Seems like there's more interest in a trip that has 2 nights. I'm with skip- depends on cost- but if I'm forking over $400, I'd rather throw an extra $50 down for another full day of outfishing everyone on the boat

You're talking about the GPS that can't show you the way to the nearest 7-11 right?

Not listed on the RISAA exhibitor list. 3 day limited sounds like fun.

Thanks Skippy. The only really good 3 day is Tues-Thur 4th-6th right after Labor Day.

2 Day Sat/Sun the 8th/9th or 15th/16th would bracket last year's trip.
