Spring Tuna Fishing in Venice LA Report

Posted on April 20th, 2017 by Captain Chandler

It’s now April and the bite is still wide open! We have been consistently been catching big wahoo and and huge yellowfin tuna. We are only running about 25 miles from the pass burning around 130 gallons. So get with us while we still have some dates open.

Last trip out we had Collin, Hunter, and Jake down to Venice from Texas to target Yellowfin Tuna and a Mako shark.

These guys were great and everyone had an awesome time. The tuna fishing here in Venice LA was phenomenal. The lump bite has really fired off and if you have been waiting to get in on the action now is the time.

We literally had fish under the boat all day! Big ones too!! Days like this are common for this time of year while fishing in and around Venice Louisiana, We took a gentleman’s limit and kept 6 but you could have caught all you wanted. When the fish we were catching were the size they were, 2 per person is really the best way to go.

Yellowfin tuna having about a 70 % yield it’s usually more meat than you know what to do with. Our fish we landed that day were from 70 to 171 lbs and they filled 3 huge ice chest.

I expect this bite to last in this area until late March as they will start moving to deeper water off the shelf after. This is also a great time to target Wahoo in Venice LA. Some days we pick up both when things play into our favor. We never got the MAKO they were after but everyone had a great time.

We still have plenty of dates available and want to get you and your group out there.

Wahoo Are Here and Big Tuna Still Plentiful!

Posted on March 21st, 2016 by Captain Chandler

We are fishing everyday, that is everyday mother nature allows us. We had a couple down days due to a front moving through, but rescheduled those trip and got out there. We had a couple days with bigger seas that we had to earn it, but the fishing was awesome.

As we get into spring, I expect the wahoo to stick around and I expect the mega big tuna to be an opportunity for the next 4 weeks or so. On any given trip we are hooking fish well over 100 pounds.

Here are some pictures from our recent trips:

Venice Fishing Report From July 22

Posted on July 24th, 2014 by Captain Chandler

As stated in our last report, we had to cancel the weekend trips due to some weird frontal weather that popped up out of nowhere and it just wasn’t safe to get out there. Thankfully our charters had the time to reschedule and boy am I glad we did. The weather on July 22 was what it is all about down here. With calm seas and sunny skies we were off to the races.  Robert Law and his family met us at the boat and we continued to fish our butts off and have a great time. As usual, I am not the best at expressing how awesome these trips can be, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

 

Fishing Good When Weather Cooperates

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 by Captain Chandler

The weather man has really been getting it wrong lately. We had to cancel both trips this past weekend, and we had some trips where the conditions were just not ideal. I recommend if you are coming down to Venice to try and have an alternate date just in case we need to wait for a front to move out of the area.

When the weather has cooperated the fishing has been good on dead baits. We have been chunking for the fish on the oil rigs and getting a fair amount of fish each day.

We still have some dates open in August. Please call us to book your Sportfishing Adventure.

Tightlines,
