Do you realize yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana are a year round thing out of Venice, LA? You’ve heard that MGFC is the charter company to book when you want to catch big yellowfin tuna in Louisiana, but did you know  you can catch yellowfin tuna whether it’s January-February, or April through June?

In fact, some of the biggest fish move into northern gulf waters in winter months. Making yellowfin tuna fishing charters an ideal gift to give this Christmas and holiday season. Yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana with the MGFC — is a year-round thing.

Fish with MGFC from December through March. You won’t work on your tan, but you will work on your quads, your biceps, and your beer drinking, too! This is the time of year for big fish. This is the time of year for legendary yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana. And, we’ve got boats ready for you. The Pale Horse, The Wild Bill, The ShockWave, and Contagious.

Capt. Billy Wells and Colin Byrd have nailed it all summer, and they’ve brought in some nice sized fish in recent weeks despite a string of prolonged, nasty weather. Capt. Kevin Beach keeps doing his thing, which we all know means fishing like a mad man, acting like gonzo, and keeping everyone on board hanging on his every word. Capt. Jordan Ellis keeps putting his charter groups on large quantities of yellowfin tuna, but he never goes more than a few days without also targeting swordfish, and he can’t wait to get into some wahoo fishing, too.

Capt. Zach Lewis, the newest member of MGFC’s yellowfin tuna fishing charters wrapped his first full summer with us, and let’s just say “we learned a thing or two about Capt. Zach.” One, he’s full throttle and determined as all get out. Two, he loves putting customers on yellowfin tuna, and three — he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve that impressed us — and we’ve been doing this full-time for 20+ years.

You can expect a full day of fishing, and an epic adventure in North America’s most productive sport fishery — a place of sublime beauty tucked away from it all at the southern tip of Louisiana, but just an hour’s drive south of New Orleans.

Accessible as a day trip, ideal as a two-fer where you target yellowfin tuna one day, and several other species the next. Or, do what so many of our charter groups do — book two boats and experience an offshore yellowfin tuna fishing charter with one captain one day, and another of our fine captains on day two. Throw in an inshore trip with our friends at Cajun Fishing Adventures, and you’ll experience the full range of fishing in South Louisiana.

But why? There’s no need. Fish with MGFC from Venice Louisiana and target yellowfin tuna, marlin, swordfish, wahoo, pelagic sharks, reef fish and more.

Fishing for yellowfin tuna is our specialty, and it’s a craft we’ve honed for many years. Each of the five captains at MGFC all have experience with some of the largest fish — we’re talking yellowfin tuna approaching 200 pounds — sometimes even more.

Capt. Colin Byrd and Jordan Ellis are particularly fond of targeting the biggest yellowfin and wahoo in these colder months. Capt. Zach Lewis thrives on a challenge, and loves showing non-stop action to his charter groups, and founding captains, Billy Wells and Kevin Beach, are both known for their uncanny ability to bring their charters home with the catch they want — as if precision and fun are just two parts of the game.

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.”
