Keeping up with Searcher

Gettin’ ready to fish

Hello anglers! We just launched the boat back into the water today after a 10-day maintenance period in drydock. We got all our annual inspections and bottom work completed with a lot of hard work. The boat will be at Fisherman’s Landing for some dockside work until we head out for its 37th year of fishing. We still have some spaces open on the first trip over Memorial Day weekend. We always have a good time on that trip and usually get into some early yellowtail and albacore. Hope to see you aboard in 2007, Capt Art

The Fred Hall Fishing Tackle and Boat show will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center from March 7-11, 2007. It’s a great opportunity to get prepared to fish this year.
