It’s official, Smith and Sons Charters is the new operator of the Bluefin. I will be moving the boat to Galveston and it will be running out of Pier 19, the slip is near the Ocean Star museum parking lot.
I plan on doing mostly private trips but will still offer a good number of open trips, 12&36 hours in hopes to be able to continue to fish with many of you guys here on 360.
I plan to do some different style trips. I’d like to continue the 36 hr deep drop trips we did on the NB, I really liked the times and format of those. I also want to do some Wahoo trips in Jan and Feb and something else I have been wanting to do is run some 36 hour shrimp boat trips in August and September and target the jumbo BFT behind dragging shrimpers at night.
We will continue to run tuna trips but will extend them out to 36 hours to allow us to do some deep dropping on our way home from the floaters.
I have had a lot of interest into jigging only deep drop trips and I’m open to that and anything else you guys want to try.
I have not made a open boat schedule as of yet but am taking reservations for private trips.

12 hours up to 17 passengers
Open boat 12 hrs- $300 PP
36 hour private trips up to 10 passengers
