Fish Reports Venice, LA - MGFC

Simrad’s NSO evo2 multifunction navigation system combines charting, sonar, radar and entertainment into dual widescreen displays — setting what the company calls a “new standard in the glass bridge navigation experience.” But, what’s it like in real world use?

“I have two words for Simrad,” says Capt. Kevin Beach, of MGFC, “Unmatched and outstanding.”

MGFC uses Simrad NSO & Simrad NSS on all four of its boats. Beach says Simrad’s function and ease of use are fantastic, but makes the point “SIMRAD’s performance can’t be beat.”

Jordan Ellis was born in Mississippi, but we don’t hold that against him.

He’s been fishing Louisiana waters since childhood, and fishing from Venice for many years. Initially, as Capt. Kevin Beach’s 1st Mate on the Pale Horse, and now as a fully licensed charter captain running the mammoth and infamous, ShockWave — a 40-ft Freeman Boatworks monster that has to be ridden on to fully appreciate.

Ellis comes from a large fishing family. His dad and mom were both big sports anglers, and his brother is a licensed captain aboard a private vessel. He moved to Venice after college (Tulane), worked for three years as a mate, then earned his license, and now fishes full-time as a captain with MGFC.

Capt. Travis Mayeux, who runs the Sweat Shop for MGFC, followed up his debut with a great trip this weekend. He put his customers on two big yellowfin, landing one — a 148lb gem shown in the photos below. 

The fish was caught in the Gulf of Mexico just south of Venice, LA. Travis put his customers on Shimano rods & reels, and suited them up with this AFTCO Clarion Fighting belt. We’re proud to have Shimano and AFTCO as sponsors of MGFC — some of the best gear for big fish!
