The "New Pelican's" 2019 wahoo heavy Fower Garden 60 [ISH] hour trip is now less than 2 months away. It is time for you to get your name on the list, or sign up that fisherman in your life, for Christmas, to show them how loved they are.

The trip is scheduled to depart at 4pm, February 17, 2019, from Deep Sea Headquarters in Port Aransas, TX but, to give you the best shot at an epic trip with great weather, we have shut down any other scheduling for the Pelican that entire week. That being said, this trip could leave at 4pm on the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, or 20th, and will return around 8am 3 days later. Because of this, once you sign up and commit with a deposit, to secure your spot, there will be no refunds if a last minute shift in that timeframe is needed for the trip to sail and you can not accommodate the shift. Please, make sure yhat you are flexible enough in your schedule before committing. It's not fair to the other hopeful anglers (and crew, because we love these trips) if a trip gets cancelled because people back out.

Anyway, this is a very limited load trip, sailing with a minimum of 8ppl, and maxes out at 15. The price is $1000 per angler, and you get to bring a cooler (that is shorter than 18") with your own food and drinks. We have a coffeepot, microwave, and gas grill for everyones community use.

This trip will be extremelly troll heavy during both days at the Flower Garden area that we are fishing. Along with spending alot of time trolling for wahoo, probably with alot of large blackfin tuna as bycatch (not to mention numerous cuda and kingfish no one wants to mention) we will also be attempting to bait and jig up wahoo and tuna while we are stopped to clear troll fish, and we all like to put in quite a bit of effort catching all the various deepwater grouper and bottomfish that are always available fishing around the Gardens. Unfortunately, the government decided to modify our winter amberjack season last year, so they wont be available, however we'll probably catch and release more than our share of them, as they are highly overpopulated, and getting thicker, everywhere. During the middle night, between days, we will anchor up, and you can either rest up for the next day, or catch your limit of very large vermillian snapper, almaco jacks, and possibly even some more grouper. All in all , its a very fun trip, with lots of opportunities to catch some true trophies!

We didnt get out for our February wahoo trip in 2018 because of an entire 2 weeks of terrible weather, but this picture is from our 2017 trip during the same month and moon. On that trip, we had close to 70 wahoo bites on one of the days, and, while there was a heavy learning curve for everyone, we wound up bringing home 21 for 15ppl, not to mention all the great bycatch we had.

As stated before, the trip is $1000pp, and we only need 8 to go. Right now there are 3 signed up, 3 more signing up in the next week or so, so really, we only need 2 or 3 more people to go! If you are interested in coming along for this great experience, call Deep Sea Headquarters at 361-749-5597 to book your spot. You can also contact me directly, through private message, or email (captjameswheeler@yahoo.com) and I'll be happy to answer any questions, and walk you through the booking process.

Do you guys do any deep dropping on these trips (tilefish, etc)?

We do a little of everything and are willing to try anything, time and conditions, just dictate what we wind up doing. But if theres a day that the wahoo arent turned, the conditions are right, and most are wanting to and equipped for it, theres some great deep drop spots only a few miles away.
