Chase Big Tuna at the Midnight Lump With Captain Brett Ryan in Venice, Louisiana

One of the many reasons Venice, Louisiana attracts so many fishermen each year is because of the unique underwater landmark that is located just 50 miles from port in an area known as the Midnight Lump. The lump is a winter fishing hotspot and is actually a large formation created by a salt dome. This tall dome causes the water to quickly become shallow (with depths around 200 to 250 feet), which traps small baitfish in the current where the BIG FISH can get them.

With large numbers of baitfish trapped here, you will also find the big “pigs” as we call them – yellowfin tuna of 200+ pounds – lurking nearby to feed, and turning grown men into babies after a backbreaking fight.
