Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Good Weather Finally!

This past weekend had plenty of ups and downs. The bite was there, but it was a little on the slow side. Most of it happened during two hours out of a 10-hour day. The weather was almost perfect, calm seas, hardly any wind, and just a few thunderstorms. The tuna fish are widely scattered. For those of you wondering if the big tuna have moved in close, it hasnít happened yet but it is well on its way. The mullets were in South Pass Saturday morning on the way out, but not as thick as they will be soon. Dorado were everywhere this past weekend. Every grass patch we saw was covered with them. This time of year they are decent sized. We hooked a good bull dolphin three times; this may be the luckiest fish out there, because he had someoneís pink Marlin bait trailing out of his mouth. It looked like it had 200lb. monofilament on it. Donít know how that could have broke, but somehow he managed to get away from us as well. The lemon fish are still very easy to catch. Plenty of people were fishing for them this past weekend. It seems that everyone had success with that. The cool front that just passed through should pull the temps. in the gulf down. This will really get the tuna feeding. We hope to be back out in a couple of days. The weather off of the mouth of the river is not very good right now. I would like to thank Dr. Richardson and Dr. Cliff Broussard for fishing with us this past weekend. I had a great time.
