Yellowfin Tuna Fishing Charters out of Venice, La. are more productive than any other fishery.
There is no where along any coast of the United States that you can catch the size and numbers of Yellow fin Tuna that we do within a 1 hour boat ride. Some days we catch them as close as 5 miles off the coast.
We fish for Yellowfin Tuna year round. The limit is 3 Yellow fin tuna per person 27″ and over.
The Techniques we use are Chunking, Live Baiting, Trolling, and Casting top water poppers. Most of the Tuna fish roam in areas where the depths range from 250ft. all the way to 3000 ft. Although, most of the time they are targeted on the surface.
Yellow fin tuna range in size from 27″ (6lbs.) all the way up to 200 plus lbs. During the months of January (late), February, March, late-September, and October we catch the big one, this is when you have your best shot at catching one well over 180lbs., possibly over 200lbs.
Our largest to date is 222lbs., caught in February. The state record is 251lbs. caught in October.
Fish that can be caught using the same techniques and in the same spot are Black fin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi(seasonal), Wahoo(seasonal), Mako Sharks, Amberjack(seasonal), and Marlin(seasonal).
