Fish Reports Venice, LA - MGFC

Offshore fishing has been up and down since early February, but wahoo fishing has been strong since the start of the new year. Wahoo and yellowfin tuna both showed up by the 2nd week in January, and the wahoo bite has been most consistent.

Shown above, Capt. Travis Mayeux on the f/v Sweat Shop, with seven wahoo. He’s had a keen eye  and a hot hand for nice fish all February and into March. On this one trip, his boat landed seven wahoo a couple of yellowfin, and a few blackfin tuna, too.

The late winter / early spring wahoo fishing that’s been booming in recent years held to form in 2015. The Gulf of Mexico just off Venice saw another January – March invasion of deep blue, toothy critters, and it made for joyful trips for plenty of our guests.

“They averaged 40 to 50 pounds mostly,” said Mayeux, “but we caught some some 60-plus pounders, too.”

yellowfin tuna venice, la. Winter fishing for yellowfin tuna is strong. MGFC photoYellowfin tuna can be found year round out of Venice, LA, but water temperature has a great deal to do with an abundance of the species. When the weather turns cool, the fish seem to be plentiful and hungry. Winter isn’t kind to much of the USA, but, it’s always pretty manageable down here.

In Venice — it’s not Sunny and 80+ in January and February — but, we have good water conditions for yellowfin tuna, and air temps are pretty kind to us, too, considering the snow drifts in Boston, and the frigid cold in the Midwest.

Most of the fish that swim on top migrate to warmer waters in cold months, but not yellowfin tuna. These bad boys stick around, and they’re big. Friggin nice and big.

Just ask Josh Friedman and his friends. They booked a February trip with Capt. Jordan Ellis on the ShockWave, a 40-ft Freeman BoatWorks catamaran run by MGFC.

e-SeaRider bean bag chairs onboard the ShockWave at MGFC. Capt. Jordan Ellis

E-SeaRider Bean Bags & Costa del Mar Sunglasses: A shout out to two of our favorite sponsors. We just couldn’t pass up posting this image (provided to us by Josh Friedman) from his recent trip with Capt. Jordan Ellis on the f/v ShockWave.

Look how cool and comfortable these guys are, with their tricked out shades in our plush E-SeaRider bean bag chairs.

On those fog days when you’re running down a cold Mississippi River, nothing better than to lay back in an E-SeaRider bean bag and stay low from the wind. Slap on a pair of the latest sunglasses from Costa del Mar, and you can’t help but look good, too.

All four boats at MGFC are outfitted with E-SeaRider marine bean bag chairs. Good for those times when you just wanna chill, when you want to lay low, or simply take a load off after a long day of hauling in trophy yellowfin tuna and monster big wahoo.
