Bag limit for overnight yellowfin tuna?

Does anyone know the bag limit for yellowfin tuna,
if you stay offshore three days? How many YF tuna can
you return with, in a Texas port? We were told last year
it was two yellowfins, regardless how many days you
spent offshore, and you must have a Texas fishing license
to land them in Texas.

Recreational Atlantic Tunas Retention Limits
The recreational daily bluefin tuna (BFT) retention for limit for HMS Angling and HMS Charter/Headboat vessels (while fishing recreationally) is 1 BFT/vessel/day/trip, measuring 27 to less than 47”, and 1 BFT/vessel/day/trip, measuring 47 to less than 73" CFL. This limit effective through December 31, 2008. Effective January 1, 2009, the Angling category retention limit will be one BFT/vessel/day/trip (measuring 27 to less than 73 inches). These BFT retention limits are effective for all areas, except for the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico is designated as a spawning grounds for BFT and therefore NMFS does not allow vessels, commercial or recreational, to target BFT while fishing in this area. However, HMS Angling and HMS Charter/Heaboats are eligible to retain 1 BFT (73 inches or greater) per vessel per year as a “trophy” fish for the boat. This fish may be retained in the Gulf of Mexico if it is caught incidentally while pursuing other species. The recreational yellowfin tuna daily retention limit is 3 yellowfin/person/day/trip. The minimum size for yellowfin and bigeye tuna is 27" curved fork length. There are no recreational limits for bigeye, skipjack or albacore tunas.

This site is all I could could find. Some one else will know for sure.

Assuming it is the same for TX you are allowed 6 in the bag limit, no matter how many days offshore. You know what happens when you assume though. Make an Arse out of U and Me!

Just remember...you will need two lisenced captains on board to retain two daily bag limits on an overnight trip.

If you catch 3 per person then you had a great trip and don't forget the sushi/sushimi that can be outside of the bag limit

At 1.5 pounds of legal fish for personal consumption per day, let's hope you don't catch a 100-pounder because you'll be out at Boomvang a looooong time chomping down all that sashimi! Bring extree toilet paper and some ice cream for all that wasabi!

Quality problem for sure! I hope to have that to deal with the week after next while in Venice for a week of poking around the Lump, Floaters, and Fixed Rigs!!!! I hope the weather is gooooood.

I sure would hate cleaning that much yft. They sure do taste good, but it takes hours to clean big ones right.
