Capt. Kevin Beach and the f/v Pale Horse are featured in an upcoming episode of Mark Davis’ Big Water Adventures.
Mark says, “one of the great things about fishing out of Venice Louisiana is the great options you have; offshore options.”
He says,”go fishing with a pro in Captain Kevin Beach and whatever you want you’re gonna land, and you’re gonna get a great show: yellowfin tuna, wahoo, you name it — a day on the water with the Mexican Gulf Fishing Company offers amazing opportunities at a wide variety of trophy fish.”
See Kevin with Mark Davis on the Outdoor Channel, starting this week.

Offshore Charter Fishing: Parker Rodrigue & Wade Wells

The Mexican Gulf Fishing Co. is proud to open offshore charter fishing with Capt. Parker Rodrigue and Capt. Wade Wells. Online booking calendars are now available for Parker and Wade in 2016. Fish offshore in blue water with Parker and Wade this summer.
“Parker has been my 1st Mate for some time,” says Capt. Kevin Beach. “He’s a great mate, and he’s ready to run trips on his own. He’s been fully licensed since we hired him. He’s a Louisiana native, and this is what he is built for. In my opinion — you fish with Parker Rodrigue — and you know you’re fishing with a pro.”
Parker Rodrigue currently is open for a handful of primo weekend days starting in March, and running through April, May, June and July. You can book Parker online, just visit Parker Rodrigue Offshore Charter Fishing at MGFC.
“We will open Parker for more days as we get further into the Summer,” says Beach. “He’s open now for about 15 days, and we expect to make him available for more in the later Summer and into this Fall.”
Wade currently serves as 1st Mate to Capt. Zach Lewis. Says Zach, “Wade is a great outdoorsman. We’re lucky to have him at MGFC. He’s fished all over the northern gulf coast, so he has points of comparison. He’s been in Venice now for three years. We expect great things from him when he starts running trips later this summer.”
Wade’s online booking calendar is open now. His first open date is June 1st, 2016 and run through November before closing in December for the holidays. He will be open for the full year again with MGFC in 2017. You can find a direct link to his online calendar right here: Wade Wells Offshore Charter Fishing with MGFC.
Tuna Fishing Venice, LA: Winter Tuna Fishing Rocks!
posted in: Fish Reports, MGFC News, Pelagics, Photos, Yellowfin Tuna
Winter tuna fishing in Venice, La., brings us big tuna and the best wahoo fishing of the year. It tends to be a little rougher this time of year but the good news is we don’t have to travel as far to get them. MGFC generally trolls for wahoo and chunks for tuna. As a bonus, there are usually plenty big blackfin tuna and amberjacks to be had in the same areas — so your charter group can ask us to target a variety of species, and you’ll head home with plenty of delicious meat for your friends and family. Remember, … yellowfin tuna tastes best fresh — right from the Gulf of Mexico.
Tuna Fishing Venice, LA: MGFC offers tuna fishing charters from Venice, LA year-round. None of us captains are fans of the cold weather, but we love us some cold weather fishing because the big yellowfin tuna generally come closer in, and the cold weather really only hits our rides up and down the Mississippi River — once in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico — things warm up a bit, and life is good.
