When you say they were getting tuna behind a shrimper were they trolling behind the shrimper as he was trawling or was the shrimper stopped and culling.dmat said:Last week before the wind started blowing, Out of Port Aransas, the Iced Down was getting into a lot of blackfin tuna behind the shrimp boats. Nate also saw a 150# yellowfin in with some blackfin. Even had a couple of reports of a blue marlin in as close as 220 feet chasing a bonita and some tuna. Fairly ugly water with much debris out to the rocks, but the tuna were caught in green water. Nice color change rip around the rocks, but keep your eyes open for debris. There will be a few boats going out over the next couple of days so there should be some up to date reports coming.
