That's it gang for the annual Oldenkamp charter. What a great trip we've had with a lot of fun with friends and family not to mention a little bit of excellent fishing in between the laughs and good times that were had by all. Sorry to have to say it but we're heading home and we will be in tomorrow morning at 7 : 00 am . This afternoon the fishing slowed down a bit due to this 20 knots of breez we had out here but that didn't stop some of these fish to bite and there was action for those willing to brave the wind and light line. See you all in the morning.

Staying busy all afternoon again today a little more wind then yesterday but fishing is still good and it's still this awesome 40# grade with a few bigger models mixed in

Father and son team Johnny and Jake Vermar bending here late

Slow goin this afternoon but still getting a bite every 15-20 minutes and with a lot of it around were hanging tight picking one off here and there on light line and the kite so hoping they wake up here soon


Well miss Texas strikes again this time with one of these 80# class Bluefin on 30# test nice job JT hard work pays off. Nate here with the assist


Curtis with a nice one on his 20# set up
Preston with more quality yellowfin here. There biting a little bit with a lot around the boat this mid morning so we will take the pick bite over no bite any day. But for the amount around you'd think they'd be a little more eager maybe when the current picks up it might get better.
