    The 48 hr Pelican trip came back this morning. 10 fishermen had 12 or 13 yellowfin, blackfin, AJ, and cuda etc. Most of the yellowfin were caught on frenzy flyers and yummies. One was caught on a chunk and none on iron. John the capt. told me he thought they would have caught more on chunks if it hadn't been so rough. The yellowfin were 50 to 70# fish and the blackfin were on the small side.

    gotta give the fish what they want... or else just be a "normal" fisherman.... get you a spinner, and OTI rod.... You'll find out- that it will probably get the most use... "Chunking" is like catfishing (or watching paint dry) to me....

    The boat was at the floaters. They fished BoomVang, Hoover, and Diana. The rigs are about 115 to 125 miles east of Port Aransas.
