YELLOWFIN TUNA FISHING IN VENICE, LA
Follow the Yellowfins
Anglers travel from far and wide for the chance to fish the abundant waters of the Gulf, and at Louisiana Bluewater Charter Company, we understand why. Here off the coast of Venice, you can catch a tuna just about every month of the year! Yellowfins are known for traveling in large schools, reaching weights of over 100 pounds, and for being extremely fast — all of which makes them a very popular sports fishing target. When you’re fishing for yellowfin, there’s never a dull moment!
Yellowfins tend to hang out at depths between 250 and 3,000 feet, but they’re known to come crashing up toward the surface — sometimes even going airborne! They can be caught while live bait fishing, casting, or trolling, and the best times to fish are in the fall and winter months from September to October and January to March.
