Take a look at this video sent to us by the Layton Ondrias crew where we were out Venice LA Fishing for Yellowfin Tuna.
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 do Venice LA fishing year round.
The limit for Yellow fin tuna was 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 out of Venice LA fishing at various times of the year. 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.
