You will have to pre book as AB's charters fill up very fast. They are a first class operation that won't dissapoint. I'm sure Honsu and KC can give you some more info when they are on.

I wouldn't just say good, I'd say one of the best.

Weekend bookings are pretty much full now, but I'd ring to confirm.
Not easy to come by, as, well.... when its that good, then everyone wants to join the party.

by good i mean, top of the line gear (if you can handle it), long (if not longest) experience doing samson jigging, great positioning of the ship to get you into fish, a captain with numerous tricks up his sleeve, and a smooth catch and release system that works even when 100+ fish hit the deck in a day, not to mention tagging and recording of data (which is really a superhuman effort from Capt. Al and deckies like Ricky, Howard, Drew and Brendan)

and any advice you are lucky to pick up, or pay attention to, is definately worth it. oh and the crew and people you meet there are worth a laugh too :P laugh at or laugh with, is up to you :P

This coming from a person who may not have as much free time or $$ to fish on it as much as he'd like, but has been jigging on the North Star 2 for four seasons now, and even deckied on it for a time.

I would definately agree with Kasey when it comes to AB he has a lot of knowledge,top gear,and puts you on the fish,my brothers and I have hired the whole boat a number of times and when we want to do a charter he is the man that we call.
