Louisiana - Venice & the Gulf of Mexico

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing Venice, La. Offshore

The offshore fishing has had its ups and downs the past few days. The tuna fishing has been a little tougher than it was a couple weeks ago. All I can say is you better have the full arsenal right now because they are being very selective on what they are eating. What works for one tuna more than likely isn't going to catch your next tuna. Very tricky lately to say the least. On the other hand the Cobia and Snapper bite has been excellent. You hook one cobia and 4-10 more are sure to follow which makes for a very exciting time. They were overly aggressive yesterday. I have never seen them actually get airborne and come down on the bait like they were. Sometimes you have to convince them to bite, but not on Fri. and Sat. Excellent bite. Capt. Bob and I had part of a huge landscaping crew on Fri. Capt. Bob had a limit of snapper and 3 Yellow fin tuna. All of the tuna have been in the 50-70lb. range. I struck out on

Tuna Fri. but at the end of the day put 5 cobia in the boat. Yesterday was a different day for us, I had the Dr. Joe Clinton group from Katy, Texas. We easily put a limit of snapper in the boat, headed out to the tuna grounds and caught 3 nice YFT. It was immediately right when we pulled up, three fish, then the bite was dead. We then went cobia fishing and they easily caught their limit of cobia with the largest going about 40lbs. The tuna fishing has been a little tougher than I would like it to be, but that should change in the next couple of days. They don't go very long before they are back to eating everything in site. Yesterday we came across something we don't see very often. Our best guess is that this is a man made boat out of cuba. More than likely it was packed with Cubans trying to get to the good ole U.S. You can see the sail, paddles, and what looks like water jugs tied to the sides. We have open days this week and next. If you are a cobia fisherman, now is a very good time to get out. Plenty of them around right now.
