    Just nabbed a spot on a 48 hr trip out of Pt Aransas. I think it's going someplace besides the usual (Hoover/Diane, Boomvang, Nansen); but, I'm not sure. Anyone know the floaters where the Pt. A boats are going these days? Got floater/rig lat/long's so I can plot them on Googleearth and check weather?

    Thanks

    Jep,

    Probably heading South to a floater offshore of South Padre. The YFT have been big and plenty! Some of the recent trip reports have talked about it.

    Just one engine. GE lost an engine coming in from their last 48. the new engine was sitting on the dock when we came in on the Pelican last week and was scheduled to be installed the next day. DSH said the GE would be ready long before the weather.

    I got an eleventh hour call from John Brennan Tuesday night with an invitation to go on the 48 on the Pelican that left yesterday morning but I had to work. aaarrrggghhh!

    Anyway, if all went well that charter may be back at the docks in the next few hours. Keep an eye on the web cam.

    You arent lying about he whole sleep thing. I keep dreaming about what I can buy next. I have never been such a tackle HO in my life. I bay fish alomst every month and during the warm season a couple of times a month. I have bought more $$ worth of tackle in the past month for offshore than I have bought all year for bay fishing.
    I guess that comes from making a big investment in the beginning and then making smaller ones for each additional trip...

    I have dial-up and the slowest computer in the whole world and I still watch the web cam regularly. Do you have Java? I think you need it and can download it free from the Port A Now web page

    TJ, sorry no pics.
    Just went on the 24hr trip Sat. Great boat & crew. Very reasonable price $250, included live bait and the use of 4oz diamonds (reely). We had 11 on board and pulled over 130 blackfin. Very little bottom fishing (1 hour) 1 grouper and a couple AJ's. Made it back to the dock about 9am. Fantastic seas and weather.
