Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report
The BIG FISH ARE HERE!!
If you want to catch 100-200 pound yellowfin tuna, now is the time! We just started catching them good last week but the bite will only last about 3 more weeks!!! Thats it! Same thing every year in October! When they show up, we have 3-4 good weeks of fishing then that is it til winter!
We have both boats almost completly open for the next four weeks and it is killing me knowing what I know about how long these fish will stick around! We had to move our trips for this weekend due to 8-10 ft seas, I will be fishing Tuesday then that is almost it, nothing much on the books for a while after that!
For those hard core tuna guys, this is when you want to be out there. I posted a video of one of the 130 pound fish that we caught last week, check it out! Your chance of catching 100+ pound fish doesnt get much better than NOW!
If you are fishing them in your boat, remember to go big on the tackle! I use 130 pound leader, 12/0 to 16/0 hooks! Big bait!! There was a fish over 200 pounds caught by Capt Trey the other day, you need BIG tackle!
Please call or email for info, rates or to book! Also, visit the website for videos!
