Default McGrail & Jakkula Banks

Anyone had any luck or tried these banks or any of the smaller ones in the general area for the zebras? Seems like they are some what in no mans land between the usual TX and LA ports. Any recent info would be great

I tried Jakkula a few years ago in March during the Houma Oilman's Wahoo Tournament but had no luck at all. I did however hook a couple of huge reef donkeys on the troll!!! Man, I thought I had a tournament winning Wahoo when that first AJ hit!!!! Don't see why that reef wouldn't hold Wahoo because its got similar depths, humps and structure as some of the other popular reefs that we all fish this time of year.

Correction to my last post, it was the Houma Big Game Fishing Club Wahoo Tournament that ran between March 9-11, 2017.

Bright has been hot this winter, guessing it has to do w/ being in slightly warmer water than the banks to the west. Just wondering if any of those banks further east would be holding as well. Thanks for the info. If we see y’all out there Jeepman, we’ll share. We only want the fat girls for the WWC����

Sounds good, my boat has a large Pirate flag on the side of it. Do not see many other REC fishermen out there so usually talk when we do see someone, we even talk to the commercial guys out there often. Share a lot of info, not like there are 20 boats on any spot and plenty of fish. The fat girls usually hang out single by the shelf rigs, lots of wehoo on the banks. Tarpon rig has been cut and dropped, worth a look if you head that way, I have not fished it since it was killed.
