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.

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.
Do you realize yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana are a year round thing out of Venice, LA? You’ve heard that MGFC is the charter company to book when you want to catch big yellowfin tuna in Louisiana, but did you know you can catch yellowfin tuna whether it’s January-February, or April through June?
In fact, some of the biggest fish move into northern gulf waters in winter months. Making yellowfin tuna fishing charters an ideal gift to give this Christmas and holiday season. Yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana with the MGFC — is a year-round thing.
Fish with MGFC from December through March. You won’t work on your tan, but you will work on your quads, your biceps, and your beer drinking, too! This is the time of year for big fish. This is the time of year for legendary yellowfin tuna fishing charters in Louisiana. And, we’ve got boats ready for you. The Pale Horse, The Wild Bill, The ShockWave, and Contagious.
Capt. Billy Wells and Colin Byrd have nailed it all summer, and they’ve brought in some nice sized fish in recent weeks despite a string of prolonged, nasty weather. Capt. Kevin Beach keeps doing his thing, which we all know means fishing like a mad man, acting like gonzo, and keeping everyone on board hanging on his every word. Capt. Jordan Ellis keeps putting his charter groups on large quantities of yellowfin tuna, but he never goes more than a few days without also targeting swordfish, and he can’t wait to get into some wahoo fishing, too.
Capt. Zach Lewis, the newest member of MGFC’s yellowfin tuna fishing charters wrapped his first full summer with us, and let’s just say “we learned a thing or two about Capt. Zach.” One, he’s full throttle and determined as all get out. Two, he loves putting customers on yellowfin tuna, and three — he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve that impressed us — and we’ve been doing this full-time for 20+ years.
Everyone knows Mexican Gulf Fishing Co. is home to some bad ass captains, and everyone knows The MGFC is the outfit you call for yellowfin tuna charters. What everyone might not know is The MGFC has built a name for itself as the operation you call for swordfish charters — as in daytime swordfish in the Gulf of Mexico.
True to form, and honoring that well-earned reputation, Captains Jordan Ellis and Parker Rodrigue put customers on swordfish with aplomb on a few recent outings. Mother nature hasn’t been kind to any fishermen in south Louisiana during October and November this year. Winds, usually hell bent and howling in the Spring have been a near constant this fall.
Some days felt like we were swirling in a never-ending tropical storm, and on many recent days, … the seas have matched as we’ve seen plenty of 5-7s with occasional 11s rolling not far offshore. On days like that it means the boats stay in.
Which means — on those handful of days when weather cooperates — we make the absolute best of it. So, … if that means catching our limit of yellowfin come hell and in spite of gray-green water, we’re gonna do it. If that means flashing a grin and going after daytime swordfish, too — that’s what we’re gonna do. In fact, that’s what you want us to do (and we know it). Game on.
