Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hurricanes and Tunas

The offshore fishing is at its best. Plenty of Tuna are out there for the taking. Most between 50-70lbs., but as I said in late June, the bigger tuna are starting to show back up now. For those of you wanting to catch yellowfin tuna now is the time to go. The bite doesn't get much better than it is now. The bull dolphin are all over the place as well. From the scattered grass patches, rip lines, and the floaters. You really cannot go wrong with the dolphin fishing.

The rig fishing is good as well. Plenty of mangrove snapper, cobia, and of course A.J.'s Actually, the amberjack did let up a little but I am sure it was just the area we were in. The cobia bite is on, and only getting better from now until our first cold front. We usually catch more of the big ones 50-60lbs.+ in September, but no matter what size you catch, they usually put on a great show either in the boat after you gaff'em or right when you hook'em.

Hopefully Claudette will not come to close to us and only keep us in for the weekend. As we stand right now we are definately going to get a little taste of the seas and rain.
