Tuna Charter Fishing Trips in Venice, Louisiana
Hookup with a Yellowfin or Blackfin Tuna!
Chasing tuna is perhaps the ultimate in big-game offshore fishing. Seasoned anglers never seem to get tired of the big fight, and “tuna virgins”, as we call them, love the experience of catching that first big fish. Captain Brett Ryan provides all this and more on year round tuna fishing charter trips out of Venice, Louisiana.
What to Expect When Fishing for Louisiana Tuna
On our tuna charter trips out of Venice, catching blackfin tuna is always a possibility no matter what time of the year it is. However, the majority of our anglers come down in search of their very own yellowfin that they can hang on the wall back at the marina for an unforgettable dock-shot!
During the warmer summer months, yellowfin tend to run in the 40 to 60 pound range (football size as we call them), but it is not unusual to catch a tuna over 150 pounds even in the summer. However, in the winter, the really huge tuna make their way to Louisiana’s Gulf Coast. And while we may not catch as many tuna in terms of quantity, we certainly make up for it in the quality of fish with some fish topping the 200 pound mark.
Tuna tend to travel in schools, and we often spot them coming up close to the surface from aboard the boat, making it possible to sight cast with poppers if you prefer. However, like many other species of fish, tuna are attracted to large natural or manmade formations that are far off the coast. The many salt domes and floating rigs off the coast of Louisiana make great gathering places for tuna, and we can take you to where they are.
