offshore venice - wahoo fishing - MGFC - 2017

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.
