It's been awhile since I've posted so I figured now would be a good time since the winds blowing and I'm not fishing. Last trip I fished was Saterday, 4-12, the day before the front came through. The fishing was awesome! I had one guy come down that was eager to hammer on some yellow fins, and that we did! We had his limit of yellow fins in the boat, realeased two yellowfins and caught a few.... Read More

This question is directed to any recreational fisherman that fish for red snapper.

NMFS cut the season to 11 days and that will likely get shorter because of further actions due to noncompliance. This latest cut is the result of a lawsuit brought by a number of individuals.

Would you knowingly do business with any of them?


My answers is No! What is yours?

Offshore Fishing in Venice in Southeast Louisiana
Summertime is just around the corner folks. Our spring fishing in Venice has been about as good as it gets. The lumps produced a few decent tuna this year, but it was far from spectacular. That did not really matter though. Instead of chumming and drifrting all day we would run to the floaters on nice days. Live baiting 60 to 100 pound yellowfin tuna in early March was the ticket. There has been.... Read More

  • Beautiful snowy grouper 10 miles offshore!
  • These r a dime a dozen this time of year, this is only 20 miles offshore
  • This is a typical good day,of just reef fishing
From what I hear the state officials are fighting with the feds on the red snapper season. So rumor has it allegedly the state opened the red snapper season 12 months out of the year seven days a week! I have not read any literature as proof to this, or spoken to Law officials about this! But wouldn't it be really cool if it was true!! I'm pretty sure it Is!! But before I go out there catching.... Read More

Just left the Gulf Council meeting and boy do I need some duct tape and tin foil.

As a result of the lawsuit filed by Gary Jarvis and a group of others, NMFS has entered into an agreement with the plaintiffs for a 'stay' in the proceedings and in exchange they are taking several actions at the Council level.

The first action is a severe reduction in the Recreational Red Snapper.... Read More

  • Great Board for Janet and Mike
  • Hooters!
Quick report. Had Janet and Mike from Idaho on board the Triple Threat. Yep, all the way from Idaho. Janet had set up the trip of inshore fishing, offshore fishing and lodging at Saltgrass as a birthday present to her husband. Unfortunately the weather was not the greatest so we opted to stay 'fairly close'. The decision was a good one as Wade and I had two exhausted fishermen after.... Read More

It wasn't too long and we were hooked up with our first one... a 250lb.... Read More

This time of year the weather is the major factor for offshore fishing. When its decent and we can get out, the fishing has been good but unfortunately we have had to reschedule many of our customers due to the conditions. Hopefully things will get better soon.

The previous week was good and even though we fished in some heavy downpours we caught really nice fish. The Triple Treat.... Read More
