Bad Intentions left the Galveston Yacht Basin on the morning of Friday, June 14 for an overnighter in search of tuna and snapper. Capt. Darrell Weigelt brought the boat 120 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico to drift fish at the floaters. The bite was red hot from dusk to dawn.

Ten yellowfin tuna to 50lbs were retained and caught using freelined chunks, Ahi diamond jigs and an odd fish on a popper. Fifteen large blackfin tuna were also put on ice. Countless smaller blackfin were also caught that night.

The focus turned to red snapper the next afternoon. Fishing with cigar minnows and live finfish, the boat retained a full limit. The largest snapper was caught on a live pinfish. Bad Intentions returned home that evening with a happy crew and holds full of fish.
