Texas Bluewater Blowup-'10 aka TBB'10 openings Oct.8th-10th, 2010
Posting with the Okey-dokey from the Big Guy.
Hi folks, we've got a long range private charter tuna trip we're putting together that needs a few more fishermen to sail.
Early 2010, we were asked to see if we could put together a series of tuna trips that would be all-inclusive with hats, fishing shirts, fish pots, meals/drinks, etc and try do them as private charters.
We booked the October 8th-10th, 2010 weekend on the Scat Cat out of Fisherman's Wharf in Port Aransas, Texas for a 56 hour charter.
Long story short, our attempt hasn't worked out to fill this initial trip with at least 20 fishermen at the higher cost.
We have 13 fishermen committed to this trip and 3 other tunaheads that want to fish, but need to deal with work schedules/ timing issues.
We're getting close to running out of time to make sure this charter runs properly as a fully committed charter, so with the approval of those already on board we've changed this charter to our annual TBB charter.
We've reduced the benefits/goodies (and as such the total cost) and are going public with it.
Bottom line, T.O.O. is trying to fulfill our obligation to those that have paid a deposit make this charter happen in a reduced benefit and cost method and keep it a private charter.

As of now, folks can sleep on the Scat Cat the night before the trip as it's been offered before.
While we have 3 tunaheads hoping their schedule will allow them to go, they understand, as everyone else should, that the opens spots are on a first pay, first go condition.
We are looking for tunaheads that are interested the teamwork, camaraderie, and helping out that comes with a planned private long range tuna charter.
T.O.O. still plans to have a few extra things and the total cost will include one extra "goody" for all on board.
Our menu options are leaning towards the following choices (All foods cooked on board, no cooked and vacuum sealed foods this trip):
Spaghetti, Big Easy "Fried" turkey, steaks, baked potatoes, breakfast tacos, chicken fajita tacos, fresh grilled fish, Celebrity Cole Slaw, hamburgers/cheeseburgers, etc, along with various snacks and sandwich foods. We'll also provide water, tea, coffee, orange drink, lemonade, and some soft drinks for all on board.
If interested in joining this 56 hour charter, call us at (210) 215-3877 or email us at: [email protected] and we'll go from there.
As this is a private charter, we require an email response to secure a spot. We have a group TBB '10 email list going and as most know, T.O.O. is very big on communication and informing folks of what is going on with all our trips.
We need to get a minimum of 20 tunaheads, and will take up to the limit of 24, so there are 5-7 spots available depending on the three that are interested. However, as mentioned it is first commit, first on board for the spots available.
Again, contact us by phone or email if interested in this 56 hour private charter long range trip.
Appreciate it, Mont.
