Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Catching Fish?

Let me start by saying this summer has been one of the best for fishing I have seen ever for tuna. The Yellowfin Tuna which are normally very hard to catch this time of year are coming in by the boat loads. An average day of Tuna fishing during this time of the year is about 3-4 but we have been averaging 6-10. They have been about 60-100lbs. and are eating everything in site. The Mahi Mahi really haven't shown up as thick as they usually do but we are still catching a few.

The rig fishing is about average. We have been catching Red Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, and Grouper. The snapper have been averaging about 10-12lbs. with an occasion 16-17lber. Cobia are all over the board with big ones and small ones coming in. Now, the Amberjack are a whole different story. They are so thick that we have been catching them on the surface. I would guess big Cobia every time they hit and it turned out to be A.J.'s. Oh Well, our cobia season is about to be in full swing so I won't be guessing way off anymore.

The fishing out of Venice, La. is still proving to be the best in the World.
