Yellowfin Tuna Video & Swordfish Video with Shimano

yellowfin tuna video clip. August, 2016 offshore fishing yellowfin tuna, MGFC.

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.

In this episode, LFG went to the Gulf of Mexico in search of giant saltwater fish like Yellowfin Tuna and Swordfish.

Fishing with Mexican Gulf Fishing Company, Justin says, “a few of our friends came together for an epic summer fishing trip. Before the first hour, we experienced a flood of Tuna! I had never caught a tuna and none of us had ever caught a swordfish. We used the Shimano Beastmaster 9000 electric fishing reel to reel in the swordfish in deep water (more than 1,200 feet deep). I also fulfilled a bucket list item of catching a tuna and eating the meat right at the dock.”

Yellowfin tuna and sword fishing happens year-round out of Venice, LA with MGFC.

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.”

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.
