We are looking to make our first Lump fishing trip out of Venice and are looking for some knowledge on how to fish for tuna and wahoo at the lump. Do you fish with live bait? Do most anchor or drift? How much chum is required? Any specific tasckle that maybe required?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We use a Fin Nor 65 or 75 on a Okuma Cedros rod and does a great job. It is a mid priced set up with 300+ yards of 80# Power Pro. I believe the Fin Nor was advertised with about 50 lbs. of drag.

Yes we did make the trip, weather was nice but windy. A good solid 4'at the lump, plenty of boats but not much fish. We drifted and chummed with with little luck a couple of sharks was all we caught at the lump. The chatter on the radio was nobody appeared to be catching very much, some A.J. a couple of black fin was all we heard. We did see a couple of boats with hook ups, but never landed as they either broke lines or lost.

We purchased chum at the Venice Marina which was very old and was terrible. We attempted to make bait on the way with little success. With better bait we may have done a little better.
