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.
