Venice Tuna Fishing Has Picked Up!

Posted on April 23rd, 2018 by Captain Chandler

The tuna fishing has started to really pick up, in fact we are in full swing!  We are catching them solid.  Having quality bait has been the difference including fresh pogies and hardtails.   After you catch bait, we blast out to the floating oil rigs and fish until about noon and then we go sword fishing unless you want to tuna fish all day long.

And the swordfish are still are goto transition in the afternoons after we have put some tuna in the boat.  Dropping deep has yielded a lot of fish this year! In fact we are up to 19 fish caught!  Absolutely on fire.

The snapper season is opening June 1st and we don’t have an end date.  But it is usually 2 to 3 weeks.  I recommend you book your snapper trips now as we only have few dates left.  Let’s load up!

The size of the tuna are ranging from about 60 to 80 pounds with a 100 pounder throw in there.

Amerjack season is also opening up May 1st.  Another fun fish we can target after we load the boat with Tuna.

The other day we had a blue marlin take the bait.  We lost it after a short fight, but they are always possibility.

The wahoo have shown up big time.

And deep dropping for tile fish has been great.  We have caught a few.  More of a bi-catch for swordfish.

Big Tuna are our speciality though!
