August Fishing Report
August has just begun and for the next few months we will see some of the BEST yellowfin tuna fishing in Venice, Louisiana of the year! Just this past weekend we fished Faux Pas Rodeo, and although we didn’t win 1st place this year we were able to put a PILE of yellowfin in the boat. Along with some wahoo and mahi-mahi.
Starting in august is when we begin to put up number of yellowfin tuna in the 40-100 range. As we move into September, October and November big yellowfin will begin to show up behind the shrimp boats. This is when you have a chance at catching tuna over 200 pounds in Venice, Louisiana! The best part about these months is that if the shrimp boats are at a standstill we are still able to run out to the floaters and catch numbers.
Amberjack, Swordfish, Grouper, Tile Fish, Snapper
The fishing in Venice, Louisiana is finally starting to get consistent with solid catches coming in everyday of yellowfin tuna and more. Amberjack season has also just reopened and will stay open until the gulf reaches its quota.
Other than tuna and amberjack there are plenty more species to catch this time of year including swordfish, deep water grouper, tile fish, shallow water grouper, and various types of snapper (red snapper is closed). We will begin to see our run of cobia starting in September but we are starting to see them right now.

We are also very excited to announce that we have added a new vessel to our fleet! Now you can ride in style and comfort when you book a trip on our 42′ Custom Conch (Room for 1-6 people).
