It is with great honor that Texas Outdoor Organizers posts the announcement of the organizing, planning, & implementing of the 14th annual Texas Fishing Forum's offshore charters known as the 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
for the benefit of the fishermen and women of the Texas Fishing Forum.
The 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
are Friday-Sunday 56 hour charters on the Scat Cat
out of Fisherman's Wharf
in Port Aransas, Texas
scheduled for October 2nd-4th
, & November 6th-8th, 2015
.* There are a number of changes from previous years, all influenced by Fisherman's Wharf's policies. Please read carefully and understand these new requirements that T.O.O. implemented to make these TFF Catorce Tuna charters happen on the Scat Cat.*
Explanations of the changes are posted in this section under the thread titled of "Changes for 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
If anyone has any questions on these changes feel free to call us directly and we'll discuss.
*T.O.O. requires that those members of the Texas Fishing Forum interested in joining either charter post on this thread stating your interest regarding the 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
. *Please post your intended charter by month and the number of spots you are reserving, either one (1) or two (2) spots. In order to be fair to the members of the TFF we have limited reservations to 2 spots until the January 15th, 2015 deadline. Once that date has been reached any available spots will be open to "bulk" purchasing.
T.O.O. also requires an email be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your commitment to the specific charter. If you are new to the TFF Tuna charters please make sure you provide us with a full name and your TFF name in the email.
At that point with an email and a post on this thread you have reserved your spot(s) and once the security deposit is paid your spot(s) are locked down until the full deposit is paid by March 2nd, 2015.
Today, December 18th, 2015
is the start of the commitment time frame for the 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters.
We have established a January 1st-January 15th, 2015
time frame to have a security deposit of $150
paid by those tunaheads as a commitment for this charter.
We recognize the cost involved and that the holiday season is upon us and T.O.O. tries to make the payment situation as painless as possible, but this security payment per spot is required to secure the spot. Please postmark your check for at least January 1st, 2015
*Reminder: a post and an email stating a commitment does not secure your spot until the security deposit of $150
is paid for each spot. Any unsecured charter spots are first pay, first reserve to all fishermen on the TFF after the January 15th 2015 security deposit deadline. PayPal or direct CC transaction are acceptable only after January 1st, 2015* Fisherman's Wharf has raised their prices by $50 for 2015. As such, the cost per person for this charter is $810
, an increase of $50 from the 2013 TFF Doce Tuna & 2014 Trece Tuna charters on the Scat Cat.
*The $810 price reflects a cash price discount price.

In order to secure a spot or spots on the 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
1. Post on this thread your commitment to the specific 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters
you want to be a part of in 2015.
2. Email us committing to that particular 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charter. Include your TFF name and real names if we do not know you to keep accurate records.
Emergency contact numbers would be good as well at that time instead of having to ask for it later on.
3. Send in your $150 security deposit betweenJanuary 1st, 2015 and January 15th, 2015
*An email and a post stating a commitment does not secure your spot until the security deposit is in our possession*. Any spot not secured with a $150 security deposit by January 15th, 2015 will have the effect of that spot being open for purchasing by other members of the TFF
You'll then be good to go until March 2nd, 2015
, when the remaining $250
deposit is due.Note: Checks will not be deposited until January 15th, 2015.
As the March 2nd, 2015
full deposit deadline approaches, we'll email a reminder to all that sent in a security deposit of the full deposit balance being due at that time along with our Term of Agreement & Waiver that is required to be signed and returned by everyone fishing the 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charter.We're required to have 24 fishermen for this charter
.2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Notes
We have to secure a commitment for these types of trips to make sure everyone truly wants to do this trip. However, we've changed the security deposit requirements. $60 of the $150 security deposit is non-refundable if someone has to sell their spot. It is transferable to another service or trip or service provided by T.O.O.
The remaining security deposit and all other payments are refundable only if anyone has to withdraw and a buyer for that spot pays the original buyer without the assistance of T.O.O.
As always, if someone has to sell a spot, T.O.O. will try to help out and find a buyer, however the selling process is ultimately up to the seller. We've been very successful in finding buyers when a spot was needed to be sold in years past, but it takes time from our responsibility to those paid and going on the charter.
A TFF PM will not work for securing a spot, feel free to PM us, but as those that have used our services know, we send group emails to those committed to these TFF charters to disseminate information and we'll need everyone's email addresses.
Sleeping on board for free the night before the charter is still available.*Tunaheads can start loading gear on the Scat Cat after 4pm the day before the charter.*
So to wrap this up; make sure the dates work for you, post up, email us, get the security deposit in to us by the January 15th, 2015 deadline and you'll be set until March 2nd, 2015.
Once we get that payment, we work for you and we'll do whatever you need to make the trip a success.
As always; these are your 2015 TFF Catorce Tuna Charters, if there are any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us at (210)215-3877 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to take care of your request
