Met John Stout, BradP, Fred, James, and Ray at the Possession Limit in some stiff winds. Grabbed a huge dinner (mistake) at the Red Snapper Inn. Headed out about 7:30 destination 100-130 miles. Needless to say it was a rough trip out. Most everyone got rid of dinner quickly. One of our party really never rallied the whole trip, no good and a long weekend for him. Very good trip, and John's organization was outstanding. Very impressed with how he runs his boat. Trolled all day Saturday with a double on large cow dolphin at 11 am. Not much else until we hit the spar and picked up a quick small hoo, lots of cuda, some blackfin, and a nice yellowfin on the troll. Had a couple of UFO knockdowns, probably tuna but no hookup. Set up to drift at dark and quickly had yellowfin under the boat. Made two drifts, kept 5 fish or so. All fish caught on chunk bait, or swimming jigs. James made the mistake of fighting one on a kingfish rod for an hour + before it finally kicked his butt and broke off. James was done after that. About midnight set the boat on a course to shallower water for daylight. Made quick work of an AJ limit at daybreak and tucked tail for a very comfortable ride in following seas. Boat cleaned and back in Katy for cocktail hour. The crew worked well together and I was most impressed. Thanks for the opportunity-Tom
