I know this is a post for a different section but all my fishing friends are here so I wanted to post these recent pics from last week. We were 180 miles offshore, three day trip out of Galveston. Along with Blue marlin, Wahoo, Red Snapper, Tile fish, Grouper we caught over 1000 lbs Yellow fin Tuna. And, landed a pending state record Big Eye Tuna - 87 lbs. Waiting on paper work approval from Parks & Wildlife. The Seas were as calm as Ray Hubbard.

It was pricey but was big on my bucket list so I saved up for it. That boat for three days with 2 captains, one mate, all the tackle & gourmet food. Plus the $2800 in fuel we burned totaled $9000. Divided by 6 anglers was $1500 each. And each angler got more fish to fight than we had the energy for. After a while it was fingers pointing and guys saying "NO, its your turn, I'm still resting". I would do it again- biggest fishing adventure I've ever been on.

Plus think of it this way, 1000lbs of tuna divided by 6, 167lbs each prior to cleaning, lets say you took home a mere 100lbs of yellowfin alone, at Whole Foods prices that's $2,500 worth. You came out ahead! And, man am I envious of the wahoo, my favorite fish in the ocean.

That is my foot, size 9-D ( if yer goin shoe shopin for me). That is a Tile fish. Caught them on bottom in 1400 ft water, used huge electric reels. Wasn't much for sport but they are big and delicious like crab or lobster. We filled a box with them then moved on to another game. And I agree with dougthehead, the Wahoo is the best.

If you have some extra (Wahoo) that you are trying to sell/make room in your full freezer/want to help a desperate soul who has tasted the awesomeness of Wahoo, please send me a pm. I'm willing to drive pretty far.
