This report is designed for those who are new to overnight fishing on the Big E. The 140 ft Big E is operating in Freeport, TX and provide 52 hours and 76 hours tuna/bottom fishing. I've tried to get on the boat since the fist operation, but all my trips were cancelled due to weather until this trip. how to get to the boat I took Continetal from Newark airport, NJ on Thursday night. The new regulations are in efect. They charged $25 for second check-in bag, but I heard other airlines are worse. The rod case length limitation is also shortened from 7'. When arriving at Bush International airport, I took a big shuttle bus for rental car operations to go to rental car center for all rental car operations. The rental car center is very impressive. All major rental car operations are there and most of them operate 24 hours. The distance to Bush International airport to the Big E dock is about 77 lbs and it took about 1 1/2 hours without traffic. You can get groceries at Kroger at the intersection of Rt 288 and 2nd West St. But there are many restaurants and lodgings on Rt 322 in Lake Jackson about 7 - 10 miles before Freeport. the Big E Here are some pictures of the Big E. There are many seas in three compartments in the cabin. Also there is a huge upper deck with lots of seatings. Even we had 40 guys the boat was never crowded except for popping in bow and stern areas. There are four microwave and you can use them anytime without any waiting. There are two shower facilities and it was very nice to take a hot shower after fishing. The bunks under the cabin is not like on the long range boats out of San Diego, but they are luxurious by East Coast party boat standard as they are roomy and comfortable with cusion. Air contition were running all the time in the Cabin and in bunks room.
