    Hey yall, Im new to your community and wanted to pick your brains a bit. When do the tuna usually pick up out of Port A? How far out do you have to go to find them? I have a 26' Pro Kat with twin 150 yamaha's and 150 gallons of fuel so I cant reach too far. Thanks

    Ordinarily you would only have to go to Hospital or aransas banks in late summer and find them near the shrimpers.. but the past few years have been real hit and miss for the yellowfins.. the blackfins are usually there, you just have to get through the bonita to find the blacks.. Chumming/ chunking around an anchored shrimp boat is your best bet for late summer tuna..

    How would I find these "Hospital or aransas banks"? I have the chip in my GPS but it doesnt show names, just says obstruction and its not that accurate.
