Capt. Kevin Beach, co-founder of The Mexican Gulf Fishing Co., and captain of the f/v Pale Horse, has been nominated for the Best of Louisiana Outdoors awards in the category Best Charter Captains and Fishing Guides. Voting is open now. Visit the Best of Louisiana Outdoors website to learn more.
Voting is open through 02/29/16, with winners announced in March.
All those who vote will be entered into a drawing sponsored by Best of LA Outdoors — with a grand prize winner getting a charter trip.
There are a dozen more prizes on offer from the Louisiana Charter Boat Association.
See them on the Outdoors Show with Don Dubuc Saturdays from 5am – 7am.
The Best of Louisiana Outdoors was established by the Louisiana Charter Boat Association in 2014.
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.
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.
