Captain Kevin Beach: Maintenance Day
Kevin Beach, along with Billy Wells is a founding captain at Mexican Gulf Fishing Co. He and Billy have been at this a long time now; in fact, some say they’re both about to venture across that line and step firmly into the territory of how shall we say it: “old salts.” But, we love old salts because they’ve been there, and they’ve “done that.” Over and over and over again.
You see Old Salts know a thing or two about fishing, about mother nature, and most especially about life.
In this short video, Kevin shows us some of what goes on behind the scenes at MGFC.
It’s maintenance day, and as everyone who ever has owned a boat knows, maintenance day is never as much fun as fishing day. But, … as Captain Kevin reminds us, … well — why spoil the ending because he nails it. Just click below to watch. It’s under a minute long.
The Calm Underneath the Storm, … thanks to Freeman Boatworks Catamarans
Thanks to all who fished with MGFC so far this summer. We all concur — Spring and Summer 2016 has been a weird one for the weather books. However, when we fish, we fish like royalty. Boats coming back heavy, though flying through the calm blue water thanks to stellar design by our friend and colleague Billy Freeman and his team at Freeman Boatworks.
Special weather pending, we’ll be posting more photos of friends fishing with MGFC — all of them coming back with beautiful, big fish.
Til then, … thanks everyone.
Book a Charter Now
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.
