    I noticed that Tucker is no where on the Mirage website? Don't know what happened, but he was a fishing machine.

    Things that make you go. . . Huh?

    I am sure it will come out soon enough, wherever he is!

    Just confirmed that Tucker is no longer running the boat. Joe V is now the captain. It'll be great to fish with him again.

    Best of luck to Tucker, I'm sure we will see more of him in the future as this is his passion.

    I heard he is getting his own boat. Also heard he will fish the Channel Islands with it. Time will tell.

    Good deal. He definitely has this area dialed in, that's for sure.

    I wish him the best.....just hope its not one of those the grass is greener on the other side deals....

    It takes tons of $$$ to keep a sportfishing business rolling along....Couple that with insane hours of working with no time off...... Sometimes its easier to be Captain and not owner....

    Captain = Same Hours.... Less Stress
    Owner = Same hours, more stress, insurance bills, work comp, maintenance costs etc....

    Glad to see Joe V back in the wheelhouse..... I learned tons from him on our trips in the past......

    Tucker is buying his own boat and will be fishing out of San Pedro, with plans of bringing the boat up to the CI soon.

    Well thats a double good news to hear, as much as I bump my friggin head on the Mirage I will have to go more than the 2 x I went last year just to fish with Joe, been way to many years.

    Both great guys and Captains.

    Best of Luck to Tucker in his endeavors, I than knows whats up with fishing for sure and is a great captain!

    Outrider is a nice boat, a bit smaller than the mirage but same style.
    Great fishing vessel!
