Posted on July 11th, 2022 by Captain Chandler

We at Champion Charters would like to take a moment to remind you that we are thankful to be living in the GREATEST nation the world has ever seen: The United States of America! Join us in celebrating our Independence Day on July 4th!

The legendary Venice, Louisiana fishing grounds continue to deliver on Yellowfin Tuna and Swordfish as well as other pelagic species along with amazing Red Snapper and other snapper species. Champion Charters is OPEN FOR BUSINESS and is ready to get you out to the grounds to take full advantage of this great action.

Speaking of Snappers, the Red Snapper fishing has been some of the best we’ve seen! With a little less than a month remaining in the 2022 Red Snapper season, you need to book your trip with Champion Charters NOW to get in on this action before the season closes on August 2nd! Call us NOW.

Introducing the Champion Charters FLAT FEE GUARANTEE

Here at Champion Charters, we realize that offering a “charter plus fuel” rate may cause concern with our clients due to volatile fuel prices. Therefore, we now offer a FLAT FEE CHARTER RATE to remove any concern you may have over a fuel surcharge and to deliver the best offshore fishing value in all of Venice, LA. Your charter rate remains the same, no matter how much additional fuel we need to burn to put you on the hottest Tuna and Swordfish action on the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Let’s get to the latest fishing report:

The Yellowfin Tuna are Thick

We’re hitting the Gulf of Mexico in our custom 36′ and 39′ Yellowfins to load up our livewells with live pogies and hardtails. We’re also packed with chunk baits to make sure that we have all of the snacks that these summertime Yellowfins are craving. Our clients have been relaxing in comfort and safety as we rip it out to the tuna grounds to seek the Tuna of a lifetime.

Once we arrive at the target zone and get our baits in the water, we’re hooking huge Yellowfin Tunas ranging in size from 70 lbs to 130 lbs with the occasional fish weighing up to 200 lbs! Book your trip NOW to get in on this incredible Tuna action!

Swordfishing Is Red Hot

We continue to put our clients on Swordfish in the 120 lb to 300 lb range during our “daytiming” trips as well as our specialty overnight trips. When you book your trip, let us know if you want to book the Tuna/Swordfish combination trip, where we target Yellowfins on the way out and target Swordfish once we’ve boated our limit of tunas.

Red Snapper Season Is Closing Soon!

The world famous Venice, Louisiana Red Snapper Season opened on June 1st and everyone has been “seeing Red” ever since. The season closes on August 2nd so give us a call to book your Red Snapper experience before it gets shut down. Our clients are catching huge Red Snappers as well as gigantic Mangrove Snappers in the 4 to 10 lb range! We keep running out of room in our custom coolers!

Overnight Fishing Experience

Our Overnight Trips, which leave the dock at Noon and return at Noon the following day are action-packed trips! Our anglers are catching Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin and even a few Sailfish during the daylight hours on our way out to the Tuna grounds by trolling various lures and lures rigged with dead baits.

We will fish our way offshore to the point that we can get set up for the dusk “witching hour” when Yellowfin Tuna and Blackfin Tuna launch into a feeding frenzy on schools of flying fish as we pitch live baits to them. After it gets dark, the action stays red-hot. We switch from live baits to “chunking” to keep the tunas around the boat and pitching jigs.

Our Overnight Trips are worthy of your Bucket List. Call us NOW to book your Venice Overnight Trip to experience the angling experience of a lifetime!

As you can see, the Venice fishing trip of a lifetime awaits! Our Yellowfin Tuna/Swordfish combo trips and Yellowfin Tuna/Red Snapper combo trips are booking up quickly as the season nears to a close. The Red Snapper season is only open through August 1st so call us NOW to grab your spot!

Let Champion Charters get you to the fishing grounds at warp speed and in comfort about our custom 36′ and 39′ Yellowfin center console fishing machines. Nobody in Venice can get you to the bite quicker than Champion Charters!

Don’t forget to ask us about large parties or corporate charter packages! We can take up to 12 anglers!

Have a Happy and Safe Independence Day Holiday! God Bless America!

Huge Yellowfin Tuna!

We’re hitting the Gulf of Mexico in our custom 36′ and 39′ Yellowfins with our livewells crammed with live mullet and pogies and our hatches packed with chunk baits to make sure that we cover all of our bases. Our clients have been relaxing in comfort and safety as we rip it out to the tuna grounds to stalk jumbo Yellowfins and Blackfins.

Once we arrive at the target zone and get our baits in the water, we’re being greeted by huge Yellowfin Tunas ranging in size from 100 lbs to 200 lbs! Book your trip NOW to get in on this incredible Tuna action!

Blackfins Are Big…and Plentiful!

While fishing – and catching- big Yellowfins, our clients are blown away by the aggressiveness and size of the Blackfin Tunas that are mixed in with the jumbo Yellowfins! These Blackfins don’t take a backseat to anything! They’re ranging in size from 25-35 lbs!

Let’s Yell “Wahoo”!

Another species that is on fire right now is Wahoo! The Wahoo bite is off the chain and we’re catching gigantic Wahoos that weight between 30 and 100 lbs! These are record fish that we’re catching on the way to and from the tuna grounds. Unlike tunas, we’re targeting Wahoos on the troll using a various lures and ballyhoo combinations.

Swordfishing Remains Steady

Venice Tuna Charters

The Swordfish bite continues to be strong as well! We continue to put our clients on Swordfish in the 150 lb to 300 lb range during our daytiming trips as well as our specialty overnight trips. When you book your trip, let us know if you want to book the Tuna/Swordfish combination trip, where we target Yellowfins on the way out and target Swordfish once we’ve boated our limit of tunas. That’s what’s great about operating our 36′ and 39′ Yellowfins: We have the speed and range to tap BOTH fisheries…and more!

Overnight Fishing Experience

Our Overnight Trips, which leave the dock at Noon and return at Noon the following day are action-packed trips! Our anglers are catching the large Wahoo mentioned above plus Mahi Mahi and even a Blue Marlin or too during the daylight hours on our way out to the Tuna grounds by trolling various lures and lures rigged with dead baits.

We will fish our way offshore to the point that we can get set up for the dusk “witching hour” when Yellowfin Tuna and Blackfin Tuna launch into a feeding frenzy on schools of flying fish as we pitch live baits to them. After it gets dark, the action stays red-hot. We switch from live baits to “chunking” to keep the tunas around the boat and pitching jigs.

There is not time for rest as the bite is amazing all night! As the sun peeks above the horizon to begin the day, we’ll switch back to live baits as the first hour of daylight brings the big Yellowfins back on the bite.
