Fish Report: Offshore Fishing Louisiana, Fall 2014
What’s the fish report out of Venice for the Fall? According to Captain Billy Wells, fishing has been great out of Venice in recent weeks, and looks good through the Fall.
“Tuna are thick behind the shrimp boats,” says Billy, “and on the floaters. This cold front we’re having right now should get the mullet moving offshore, and the cobia moving inshore, that’s always a pattern we see with the first couple of cold fronts.”
Wells says Tuna are being caught in the 80 – 100 lb. range.
As always, Wells and the MGFC crew use Seguar Fluorocarbon and Mustad 7/0 – 8/0 perfect circle hooks.
MGFC’s boats are booked solid through the Fall, but there are some open dates in the winter months, and now is the perfect time to get on the books for 2015.
Book a trip with MGFC. Call some friends, pick a date, and come on down. We look forward to fishing with you in 2015.
You saw it on the drawing board, and you saw it at the Miami Boat Show. It caught your eye riding on the Interstate from Florida to Louisiana, and this week ahead, … it makes its debut as the newest Freeman in our fleet of Freeman’s at The Mexican Gulf Fishing Company — a 42 foot Freeman Boatworks masterpiece.
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.
