Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Weather Fishing

It has been a while since our last post. Been away from the computer for a few days. First let me start by saying the weather down here has been tough to fish in. Hopefully, this will come to an end soon. Last trip out we had Mike White and friends. Went long for Tuna in the morning. Live bait was a problem since we couldn't find any, but chumming them had been working better anyway. Right when we were pulling up the tuna were busting. We had them behind the boat eating chum in the slick. But, not one taker. After an hour of fishing and no bites, we moved in to the rigs to see what we could do. For the first hour we could not get an amberjack in the boat. Not because they weren't biting, but because we couldn't stop'em. I was using a rig with 250lb. power pro and 400lb. test, until this day nothing would get off. I even went a month without changing the hook. Anyway, we did manage to get our limit of A.J.'s, all decent size and then we went chasin snappers. We found a few, late in the day undersized. On Sunday we had Dr. Giorgio Aru and kids. They caught 17 snapper, between 5-10lbs. and 1 cobia about 25lbs. Then the wind picked up and we headed in. Right now, everything is biting. Tuna, Marlin, and Dolphin offshore and around the rigs snapper, cobia, a.j.'s and Grouper. We will be fishing the rest of the week and the weather should be the best we have had in a while.
