Venice Louisiana Fishing

Capt. Damon McKnight
June 2, 2008
Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past week and weekend was a good one. We caught a little bit of everything but the only species that remains very consistent are the A.J.'s. The weather was about as good as it gets but we are having some washing machine currents offshore that still had it a little bumpy despite barely having any wind. On Friday Capt. Bob had the Chris Wallen crew, this is their second trip back and once again had a good catch. They easily caught their limit of A.J.'s, 1 small wahoo, two yellow fin tuna, and 1 blackfin tuna. On Saturday Capt. Bob had the Pitman crew from Mississippi. The fishing started out somewhat slow. Tuna was the main target and after having one pull off which was caused by a straightened mustad circle hook(it happens some times), a handful of sharks, and about 10 rainbow runners the crew called for a change of species and they went in search of Grouper and A.J.'s. Of course the A.J.'s cooperated and they got their limit. I took out the Folse crew from Lafayette. We got an early start but our bait catching took a lot longer than expected. It took us about two hours to catch what we needed and about 20 minutes to catch a limit of A.J.'s (6). The amberjack were smaller than what we have been catching but still good sized. We headed South and came across a good rip line that was holding a lot of sargassum and had a good color change from dirty green to blue. We caught two dolphin off of it, 1 was a a small bull and the other was a chicken. The rip was not producing so we headed out to the tuna grounds. First stop, shark city. Second stop, plent of tuna around us, most of them were in the 50lb. range but they were being very finicky. We finally got one on and the guys put him in the boat, 80lber. 20 minutes later. Capt. Bob took out the Easterling crew from Shreveport yesterday for opening day of Snapper season and they easily got their limit plus some mangroves. The fishing is definitely getting right. There are plenty of opportunities for a variety of species. We've still got some open days left this months and a couple of Sundays are still available.
