Hi folks, got a bug in the head here. Son One is really talking up this years 12 hour offshore trip when we are down in Port Aransas this July. He's thinking he's ready to slap around some blackfin and maybe a yellowfin since he's caught a 35+lb smoker king last year. My idea is to private charter the Pelican/Kingfisher/G.E. from DSH one one of the days between the dates at the top in July. We'll be in Port Aransas from July 16th through the 26th (as of now). It may be longer or a bit shorter. Thinking about chartering one of the boats during the week Tuesday-Thursday. We were fortunate, last year's open charter had 30+ on board, but they were good people that worked together overall. However it was too crowded for me. Son One was fine with it, not knowing any better. Ideal is to run and gun for Tuna behind the shrimpboats, and maybe top it off with some deep drops. Know it is hit or miss for tuna, but it's always fun to hunt them down. Son One really thinks he's ready for tuna hunting. The main thing is there will be line pulling going on of some type. Figure on limiting the number for comfort and still be affordable. Don't know what is available or when but if there is interest, I believe we can get DSH to work with us on getting a charter date during those dates. It would be equal sharing of costs for everyone based on the number that we settle on going. Not expecting it to be a tuna war, but odds are fair for getting into them in late July. Parent/child charter would be cool as I only do this trip every year in July for Son One, who is into offshore fishing. Will leave it to any interested parties to provide input on what they think will work as well. I've never found DSH to just take our money and not try to put folks on fish. As this would be a personal trip like Tuna I through Quatro Tuna, please email at [email protected] if you have an interest as well as posting here. Let me know if interested.
