Super Strike Charters Gulf Coast Fishing Report

Venice fishing right now (offshore) is as good as it gets.

Yellowfin tuna fishing in the Gulf Coast is on right now.

We are catching all different sized ranging from 30lbs. up to 150lbs.  The bigger fish are starting to push into the area already and the bigger 180+lb. YFT are here.  We are finding most of the bigger fish closer to shore fishing behind deep-water trawlers, there are a bunch of black fin and smaller yellow fin tuna mixed in. The floaters and deep water structures are holding a lot of 70-90lbers with some over 100lbs. in the school.

This time of year bait is abundant and so are the fish.. One of the 130lbers. we caught on labor day weekend was full of hard-tails which is the bait of choice right now.  The cobia are starting to show up as well, it is that time of the year that we can target them around some of the shallow water structures and grass lines that form in the delta. Sword fishing is still happening but that has slowed down some over the past several weeks. However, October is one of the best months to target swords, so if that is on your bucket list then Oct. is a great month to go.

For the next two months our main target is going to be Yellowfin tuna fishing so if you’re looking for some incredible Yellowfin tuna fishing, then now is the time to come down here and go.
