I got a quart on our trip duck hunting in January down there and they were gone in 2 days eating them myself! Would need at least a gallon for 56 hours with other peeps!! Couple boxes of saltines. Catsup. Horseradish. Lee and Perrin and some lemons I think I could survive a long weekend!

Texas - we got a lot to be proud of here right at home! We can fish pelagics as well as any other of our coasts - some trips when we look for swordfish and makos, we hit 600lb class game out there - our same crew.

The experience - living like a team and living the dream - it's a world with no barriers except our own limitations.

As a Team - we can literally take on what we focus on - backing it with gear to cover.

Skloss tuna tracker is under 100 days for this trip! Spooling up some rods in the shop! Will 50yds of 12lb Floro work or should I step up to 20lb braid? Iíve got 1/4oz Slab Syndicate jigs with number 2 mustard steelhead hooks so I should be good to go! Do they sell minnow at dolphin docks or should I bring my own? Any other gear to be on the lookout for?

Single hook or treble hook on the Ahi glow jigs? Also does the color of the flying fish matter? Asking in case I run out of minnows! Also where can I get a gallon of fresh shucked oysters down there? TIA!!

Also how many jigs you need on a trip? I know that can vary but is 3-4 enough or do you need 20-30??

3 or 4 is plenty. I always change to single quality hooks on tuna jigs.

Pink always seems to be the color of choice on the flyers but Blue works too.

Not sure on the oysters.

Gonna be a good time!

Slew. A couple 6 ounce jigs is fine. Flyers blue or pink. They sell them at the docks and you could just ask. Not sure when oyster season opens. I usually just get out and grab some from top of reef these days.

These trips have become very popular with DD. I was able to book available spots on a scheduled trip that only had one person scheduled. She had no available dates for private charters when I grabbed up what I could on this one.

Keystone. Timmy wore them out about 2 weeks ago. Then went and caught swords, tile, and barrel fish. I would try and book a dark moon.

And private or open boat it’s 16 people is full boat on overnight trips
