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!

MGFC provides offshore charters for yellowfin tuna, wahoo, marlin, mahi-mahi, sharks, and a variety of other pelagic and rigs & reef species.

That’s right — the f/v Wild Bill is ready for charters from Venice, Louisiana.

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.
