The Mexican Gulf Fishing Co. (MGFC) is proud to fish with Shimano rods & reels. Shown here, the Shimano Talica 50II. One question: is the guy in yellow a Photo Bomb or is he amazed at the the Talic 50II/Terez’s power

shimano talica 50ii photo. mgfc.Shimano’s new Talica TAC-50II, is a two-speed reel that provides anglers with a compact, high-speed castable lever-drag reel that can hold enough line to battle just about anything that swims. In the photo above, we had a monster wahoo on the end of the line. But, we just as frequently use Shimano’s TAC-50IIs on big tuna swimming round our neighborhood in the Gulf of Mexico off Venice, Louisiana.

Shimano sponsors MGFC. We’re proud to fish with their products; they’re a big part of our success.

A charter trip is only as successful as the charter captain, but having the best gear helps.

Shimano makes the best rods & reels. Plain and simple, it’s why we fish with them. That means when you fish with MGFC, you’re fishing with the latest and greatest gear in the sport fishing industry.

Book a trip with MGFC to see what the latest in Shimano technology feels like in real world use.

Offshore Venice — is off to a good start in 2017. We’re seeing monster yellowfin tuna, plenty of blackfin tuna, wahoo of great size, and temps (water and air) that you just won’t believe.

“It’s been wild,” says Captain Wade Wells. “We’re seeing really nice temps making for some nice warm days. It’s bringing in the fish, too,” said Wade.

Captain Jordan Ellis agrees. “I’ve put customers on yellowfin and wahoo and we’re surprised at the size of both species. The ambient temps are great, and the water temps running a bit higher than normal too. It’s been a fun start to the new year. Looks to me like Spring is gonna be awesome.”

Justin Rackley, known as Lakeforkguy, creates fishing videos on youtube and other social platforms. Lakeforkguy travels to freshwater and saltwater fishing spots to explore new fish species and fishing techniques to show as many fishing places as possible and help viewers catch more fish, and recently he wanted to make a yellowfin tuna video.

In this video, he fished with MGFC out of Venice Marina. They targeted yellowfin tuna and swordfish, and got what they came for. View this yellowfin tuna video, and see what a day of offshore fishing is like when you fish with MGFC.
