    I just put my name on the list for the July 20th trip. They are planning on hitting beaudreax again so I wanted to give it a shot. Hopefully some of you can join!

    They aren't going to do any weekend trips till late September... That's why I broke down and jumped on a weekday trip...

    Nope the last I check nine was the minimum needed to make 15. 15 Is the min to sail... 15 People means boat feels empty!

    Just got off the June 56 hr on Scat Cat - it is a great boat expecially when
    weather and seas get bad. Fishing off this boat over 30 years - the bunks
    finally made it work for Long trips.

    Beaudreax is around 120 miles east of south padre jetties if I remember correctly.
    I think the depth is right around 3500 ft.
    It's about like fishing at any other floater. It's big!
    I think it consistantly holds more fish due to the lack of structure anywhere close by...

    They scratch your initials on the fish. I'd reccomend marking it yourself with a ziptie or something similar.

    Last time I was on the boat we left about 8am on day 1 and returned in the eveing of day 3. I think they stayed out a little longer than planned as the weather was tough and they wanted to make sure we got our moneys worth of fishing...

    I can't say enough good things about the Captain and crew on this boat.

    24 bunks-that the limit.but will sail with 15:D
    you can bring your own cooler /food/beer( no bottles) and the deck hands will pull it out of your vehicle and lift it to the upper deck $$$.There is a small gas grill -bring seasoning you like for fresh fish:D the cook has microwave sandwiches/ burgers and but does make egg breakfast.

    bring plenty of cheap 6oz-8oz hammerd diamond jigs and glow in the dark jigs -you will burn thru them:eek:

    This is a great boat- go if you can!:cool:
