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,

The fishing has been excellent here in Venice and the weather has been cooperating just about each and every day. We have had the pleasure to fish with some great folks from all over the world. Venice is the top yellowfin tuna fishing destination and it has made us look good recently.

Venice, La Wahoo and Tuna Fishing

Posted on January 25th, 2014 by Captain Chandler

Well hunting seasons over and it’s time to get back to the fishing! You can say it’s anything but cold right now in Venice, because the fishing is on fire! With this past week of decent weather the wahoo bite has been on! With numerous rigs extremity close in has held plenty of wahoo ranging from 40 to 60 lbs class, and in most cases double digit bites and hauls!

The lump fishing by all means is full of life! Some days about a mile from approaching the lump you can see giant schools of bait getting exploded by tunas, big king macrales,etc. Most fish caught off the lump are hand fed. While chumming the waters it seems every piece of bait you throw in gets eaten by some kind fish! Before you know it the rods are bent over and drags are screaming! Most will say this time of year is their favorite, it’s defiantly mine! Most days we’re not having to travel further than 30 miles out before we’re on fish! At just 1 of the many lumps you can catch big yellow fin tunas ranging from 60 to 150 lbs class and sometimes even bigger than that like 180 to 200plus class!! 7 out of the top 10 gulf record yft’s is from the world famous Midnight Lump! Also there are usually many huge blackfin tunas ranging from the 15 to 30lb class.

The wahoos are also plentiful at our lumps, not to mention many different species of delicious bottom fish such as, amberjacks, bee-line snapper, lane snapper, and also grouper. So when the wind isn’t blowing gather your buddies put on a coat and some boots and call me to book a charter! Now is the time to book a trip of a life time!!
