Huge Yellowfin tuna!

Capt. Josh Howard
January 6, 2010
Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Its that time of year again, time to catch BIG fish!

Aaron and I fished Saturday with Andy from New Orleans! The sea's were not great but we were able to make good speed in the cat! We have been catching nice wahoo and tuna but this group wanted tuna so we decided to make the long haul! First stop was dead, 2nd stop we were able to pick up about six live baits and started to fish! No surface action but I was marking a few good fish! After more that a few attempts, barracudas eating most of the live bait, we finally got a hit on a chunk. This fish hit so fast that we never got to the reel, I think it pulled the hook out of its own mouth. Next line in the water, hooked up! Next line out, hit by a train then pulled the hook, next one out was a live bait! Again, hooked up! After getting that fish in the boat, the bite was dead! Never another hit! The trick is being ing the right spot at the right time. All of these fish are big, all 100 pound class fish!

After getting word from the crew that we had one sick one on board, they decided to head in a little early! I do think we would have caught a few more if we could have stayed another hour or two!

Capt Gray and I ran a trip in his boat a few weeks back, we had Mike Lane on board shooting a little video! We were able to find some big wahoo, it was our first good wahoo day of the season! All caught on bomber and Stretch 30's!

I would like to thank Mann's baits for adding Deep South Charters as a sponsor because we do use and believe in their baits! I have had a lot of success with the stretch 30's over the years!

We have had to cancel a lot of trips over the last month due to rough seas but I think it will start to calm down enough to get out and fish! Jan, Feb and March are awesome months for HUGE wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna! The amberjack season will open Jan 1st and the grouper action is not bad either! If you want to fish, please give us a call! Feb is about half full right now but between the two boats, we should be able to get you on the water!

Lets go fishing!!
