Summer in Venice: Now that we’re past the midway point of Summer, 2017 we thought the time was right to catch up with all our friends, and talk about fishing out of Venice Marina in the Gulf of Mexico.
Captain Colin Byrd put it best when he said, “bait has shown up in full force, and our tuna bite is on fire. August is looking spectacular — tuna will be strong, big fish already here, and we know as we get into late summer and fall even bigger ones roll in. We’ve had plenty of customers going home with good stories, great smiles, and full coolers.”
So, … Capt. Jordan Ellis names his new boat after his beloved momma. And, … his momma’s favorite fish in the whole world is a blue marlin. And, … on the first trip out in the f/v Kimmi — they land a blue marlin. Coincidence? We think not. Powers above; lots of Love! Momma Kim would be proud.
Jordan and his charter braved iffy (nautical term there) weather, and headed out a bit later than normal from Venice Marina. First cast brought in a yellowfin, and the second fish to the boat was a blue marlin.
Yes, the Marlin flag flew high and mighty on the Kimmi as she made her maiden voyage, and smiles were wide all around when Jordan and his charter made it back to the dock. Final tally? Seven tuna and one marlin.
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.”
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.”
“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.”
