There are. Where do you want to leave from? Someone can narrow down your choices because they run out of Galveston, Freeport, Port A and just about every other port.

I live in the woodlands so Galveston/Freeport are probably the easiest but I'm not against driving further

Williams Party Boats (big boat is the Capt. John) and Galveston Party Boats (big boat is the New Buccaneer) leave out of Galveston. The Blue Fin is in Freeport and they do a few tuna trips each year. I used them last year on a private 36 hour trip and had a blast.

Not sure on the double limits. If I remember right, you can on some fish, but not on others. You'll have to check the federal regs.

If you're on a tuna trip on a party boat, it won't really matter what spot you reserve, that's only for bottom fishing. When you're tuna fishing, the boat is drifting so you can only jig or chunk on one side of the boat, while the opposite side bow is for casting baits like poppers and such. That was my experience on the New Buccaneer at least. When jigging, it didn't matter where on the rail you were. Everybody caught fish. Technique mattered more than location. If you're curious about another boat, contact them, they're usually pretty good about letting you know what to expect.

I would highly recommend going with GPB if youre going to choose one of the trips out of galveston.... living here in galveston and having used both party boat services multiple times i can tell you that for some time, GPB has been on better fish over and over again.

Personally, I dont mind the crew with Williams one bit however, every tuna trip I go on seems to be filled with about 20 old guys that have the "my way or the highway" attitude. Without going into detail of quite a few stories Ive accrued, lets just say they werent the funnest trips...

2 day limits apply to reeffish, grouper, snaps(in season) aj's, and kings. on charter boats you can also retain 2 warsaw's instead of one, but you have to be on a licensed charter boat with 2 capts for over a 24hr time period. if you cant come fishing with us on the Bluefin in Freeport you should definitely go with Capt. Matt on the New Buc., he's the fishiest capt. in Galveston.

Capt. Josh
