Looks like things are shaking up a just little bit out there. Wind speeds and wave height have been on a gradual increase and radar shows some scattered showers in deep water.


Just wondering if anyone else is punting

How rough was it yesterday? 2-3 or 3-4s? We are looking to break the S. Jetty out of Galveston at sun up in the morning. I have had my fill of getting beat up this summer. Buoys (for what they are worth) don't look too bad?

We changed our minds about 10pm Friday night and headed out.
Sure glad we did, great water and smooth as glass on Saturday at Tequila, Little Sister and West Flower Gardens. Got some Tuna, AJ's and Wahoo trolling.
Ran 18-19 knots coming in which is exceptional for this boat.

Good report there Tesas Dux. What kind of tuna? What depth, etc.You can PM if you want.

We ended up at Gunnison, and got 0 YFT, but caught the heck out of nice sized BYT. We even drifter at night a flying fish for 30+ minutes with no takers, so I went to bed. Nothing hitting on poppers, chumming, or diamond jigs. We also fished the new star drilling rig 2 miles away. Maybe McGoilfer will tell us what was wrong considering it was a full moon and I thought we would have torn them up. Crew wanted more AJ's and save those BF's, but due to only 550lbs of ice we threw them back. OH well, sorry guys. Still a good time and 2-3' seas. We saw only 1 other fishing boats past 25 miles.
We also ended up with nice 2 dorados(1 was 4' long), a few AJ's(largest was 55-59lbs),4 groupers(largest 15-20lbs).
