The fishing remains great in Port A. I didn't go fishing, but took this information from the South Jetty, a weekly Port A newspaper.

Deep Sea Headquarters continues to hammer the YF at the floaters. On Nov 27th, the Gulf Eagle with Capt. Keith came in with limits of AJ's, YF's, and a 500 pound Mako. They also caught a huge grouper and some dolphins. Tony the first mate continues to keep all customers happy with his positive hardcore attitude.

Dolphin Docks had a 36 hour trip that brought in 300 BF's and 25 YF's. They also had a boat bring in a 100 pound Wahoo.

Private boats continued to pile up big Hoos. This Nov has been incredible for hoos. If you could get out on good weather days, the big hoos were present.
Capt. Tommy Gueldner who I still think is the best Capt. out of Port A brought in a 85 pound Wahoo. Tommy used to run the boat "Yellowfin" for 15 years. The "Yellowfin" was sold. He now runs the "Reebecca." The bad news is that the owner of the Reebecca does not allow his boat to be chartered.

Was the "yellowfin" moored in Galveston back in the 80s/early 90s?

I don't know. The "Yellowfin" is a 40' Gamefisherman. The guys that started making Gamefisherman boats came from Rybovich. It's a very well built boat. I saw it for sale this summer docked in Island Moorings Marina. It is a wide open style express fisherman style boat with a flying bridge. The hull has always been painted yellow. Nice boat but with its modified V hull, it's a rather rough riding boat in heavy seas. But, it doesn't roll when trolling or drifting like the Bertrams. It has huge fish boxes built into the cockpit.

Tommy would get drenched up top when running out in 4-6s. But, he never stopped until he reached his destination. I always wondered when and how he took a leak on those long runs. I once asked him if he had a super sized bladder. His response was "You might not want to know."

Eastern and hospital. Southern has some also. I also heard there is a rip line still around 32 miles offshore. That was about five days ago.

Just in case anybody is interested, here's the latest from Port A. The Gulf Eagle continues to go to Boomvang and slay the Yellowfins. Capt. Keith brought back another group with limits of YF's. The Avg size was 70 pounds. The biggest fish they brought back was a 91 pound grouper. All of the AJ's averaged 40 pounds.

The Dolphin docks had the largest YF of the week at 112#'s. All this info was from the South Jetty newspaper that I get in the mail. The paper was dated Dec 14th.
