Fishing Venice, LA with Wade Wells

Wade has won and placed in a number tournaments, and truly enjoys showing his customers a memorable trip through his incredible passion for fishing in the bountiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Wade was raised in Mississippi and Florida, but knew almost all along that he wanted to run offshore charters out of Venice. When asked why, he says, … “because Venice is one of the world’s best fisheries. It is THE Spot for yellowfin tuna, and that is sort of my game.”

Wade also loves to put his customers on wahoo , and relishes an opportunity to help charters land their first blue marlin.

He says, “Venice fishing is not only known for the large variety of species, but also for the size of the fish too! People come down here from everywhere and they’re always thrilled to see the Blue Waters of the Gulf of Mexico and realize they didn’t have to fly international to get to a gorgeous, deep blue fishery.”

Anglers come to the Gulf for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi (Dolphin), Cobia, Wahoo, varieties of Grouper, Red Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack, Shark, and marlin. Capt. Wade has experience putting customers on all those fish.

Offshore charters with MGFC include — but are not limited to — fishing the permanent oil rigs, which act as reefs for marine life, fishing the floaters, which are moving oil platforms, fishing the Lump, or trolling behind the shrimp boats when in season.
