Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Incredible Tuna Bite.

Another excellent week of offshore fishing down here. The black fin tuna bite has been about the best as I have ever seen. The yellow fin tuna bite has picked back up and the wahoo have started to move back in again. On Tuesday and Wed. Capt. B. Kenney ran the Super Strike as I catered to Jason Cannon who has done some incredible fishing articles for us and I have fished with for about the past four years. He was the managing editor of Sport Fishing Mag. for about ten years and now he is on his own. He needed to get an article so we were glad to help him out. On Tuesday Capt. Bob had 25 blackfin for his group and yesterday he had several tuna and five wahoo. Great Job Bob K. Yesterday Jason C, two other capt.'s from the marina and myself went out to see if we could get a money shot(Huge Yellow fin tuna or Mako Picture) for Jason. The action started out hot and heavy with blackfin after blackfin and we needed some yellow fin action fast. Well we got it but not the right size. We had five yellow fin total which were all about 40-50lbs. We were looking for what we call the Hundo.(tuna over 100lbs.) We finally got him on and after about a five minute fight the hook pulled. We tried again but kept catching black fin. With the weather deteorating quickly with wind and rain and not really being able to get the right pics. anymore in this type of weather we called it a day. Jason got plenty of tuna pics and should get an article out of it. He is inshore today. For all of you Full Mooners that won't fish tuna on a full moon. The moon doesn't get any fuller than the past three days and the tuna fishing has been on fire. This year more than ever most people calling do not want to fish for tuna on a full moon. It sure is hard to follow when the fish are biting like they are right now. The best advice I can give no matter what the moon is and you think you know something, ask the capt. first. If he sais the fish are biting, don't worry about the moon or anything else.It looks like the weather is going downhill fast and looks bad for the next couple of days. We still have open days left the second week of March. The tuna and wahoo bite should still be good.
