Lots of BIG Yellowfin hitting the dock in Venice right now.

I didn't get to participate in the carnage that took place this last week, as a result of a medical issue with my wife, but from what I hear your best bet is to get on a boat and do it now!!

Capt. Eddie had a 165 and a 203, Capt. Josh B had a 135, Capt. Lee had 4 right around 150 by 10:30 AM Friday, Capt. Josh H had a 180 Sat, and Capt. Peace had a 190 something. These are just the ones I heard about, so no telling what I left out.

If we don't have any really strong cold fronts roll through, this kind of fishing will just keep on rolling.
My advice, again, is to get on a boat ,and do it now!

Most of the weekends are already taken, and I have had several anglers tell me they can't get off during the week. My advice has been to 'QUIT YOUR JOB and fish the whole month of October like your hair is on fire!!'

After all, October only comes around once a year and you can always find another job.

Hope you get a chance to get in on some of the craziest fun fishing Venice has to offer.

Offshore Fishing

Venice in Southeast Louisiana

Venice offshore report
Capt. Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

We're still alive and doing well. Our boat's and camp are all good, and we finally got back on the water this past weekend. The shrimp boats are in place and they are holding some fish.... just not many Yellowfin. In two days of fishing, Capt Lee's 150lb Yellowfin was the one and only Yellowfin caught!? The boats seemed to have plenty of Bonita, Sharks, and a hand full of Blackin, but the only ones that seemed to be hungry were the Sharks. I hate it when that happens!
Saturday was so rough we really couldn't run farther than the boats , and after working them over for more than long enough we ran back into the relative safety of the West Delta and spent the rest of the day fishing for AJ's and Cobia. The AJ's were easy and hungry. Gotta love em!
The Cobia were around, but not in big numbers. I think we went 4 for 5 the first day, but those numbers should really improve, along with the shrimp
boat fishing as soon as the coming cool fronts to drop the water temp.
Sunday the water was much better. We started the day off chasing the shrimp boats again (slow learners) with not much better luck than the day before. We had a couple of Blackfin in the box when we headed South. Not much better luck out that way either. I was on the radio with the other Captains , and it seemed like we were all trying to figure out where all the Yellowfin had gone to. We found out when we got back to the dock. Seemed like Capt. Willy B nailed them to the wall!! I was really glad to see them, just wished they would have been on my boat. I guess thats what happens when no ones been on the water for two weeks. The good news is that from here out we should be able to stay on them, and it wont be loing before the shrimp boats start paying off. Cant wait!!
Give us a call if you have the itch.

Tuna, Tuna, everywhere!?!
The only problem is that they are very seldom in the same place twice, or at least not for more than a couple of days. The good news is that if your willing to look for them for a bit, you will probably find them. The rest of the good news is that they are eating well later into the day, and a lot of them are BIG! The past couple of days we had several 100 lbs or better. the best coming in at 130lb.

The marlin are still around and eager to cooperate. We picked up a nice White Marlin one day and a buddy of ours picked up a Blue Marlin the next day from the same spot. Two other private boats bpicked up Blues as well.

Bait is still pretty easy to come by. Threadfin, Poggies, Crack, and Disco minnows are all there for the taking. The nice thing is the Tuna dont seem to have a preferance, all you need to do is find them and they will eat.

I guess the biggest problem we have had the past week was the weather. Seems like not long after we would get on the fish a storm would run us off. The nice thing was while we were running from one storm we would often times run across more fish.

The weather should straighten up after this last front pushes through band the fishing should only get better. The Tuna will keep getting bigger, the Cobia will only get thicker, and the AJ's are always eager to eat!

Gotta love Venice!!!

Venice offshore report
Capt Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

Its been a while since my last report, but the fishing is still very good out of Venice. The fish seem to be getting bigger than they were earlier in the year, and one place in particular has had some REALLY BIG fish hanging around. The other day we were there, and had several in the boat over 100lbs. when we hooked the a really big fish at 2:30 PM and finally pulled the hook at 6:00 PM!! We never got more than half our spool back!!
Our bait situation is much better as the 'crack' finally showed up as well as Threadfin, so thats all good.
The Tuna aren't nearly as predictable as they were earlier as they seem to be here today and somewhere else tommorow, but all in all we are still able to stay on them and make a good day. We can keep AJ's again so it's always nice to stop and add them to the ice hole.
The craziest thing that has happened to us since the last report was a very close encounter with a VERY LARGE shark. We were Tuna fishing when this shark decided he wanted one of the Tuna we were bringing along side the boat. We were in clean green water so visability was not the greatest, but we knew something was up when the Tuna we had been fighting decided he really wanted in the boat with us. He swam to the boat with enough speed that he actually breached the surface in easy gaffing range. Jimmy reached for him with the gaff, and out of the depths I saw a shark coming up that was so big that my first thought was 'why would a whale shark want to eat our Tuna'. The next thing I thought was ' why does that whale shark have strips on it like a Tiger Shark!!!' Then I snapped. It was the biggest Tiger I have ever seen by far. Really cool.
I have some dates the last two weeks of August if you want to ride. Text message is always a good way to reach us.

Capt. Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

We just finished up with a few trips and I'm glad to report the Tuna are still on the chew. The last day we fished the fish relocated without telling us , but we still found them so it's all good.

The craziest thing going on this summer seems to be the really big Tuna still running around. Most of the fish we are catching are the normal 40 - 70 lb fish, but there are more than a few studs running around out there. Capt. Eddie Burger put one in the boat that tipped the scale at 169lbs., and Captain Michael Pittman wound up with one that went 180lbs!!
The last day I fished we tossed the first two baits in the water only to have one of them inhaled seconds after hitting the water. I don't know how big this fish was because we never stopped it! It dumped a 30 wide on the first run!?!
The rip seems to be coming together every day and if you get on it in time there seems to be plenty of Dolphin and a Marlin amd Wahoo.

The Red Snappers are always willing to take a ride on the boat, and they are a good way to top off the fish box at the end of the day.

If you want to ride give us a call or text me.

Venice offshore fishing report
Capt. Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

The Tuna are still on the chew, Snapper season has been extended, the Marlin are still on an all out asault, and the Dolphin have finally made their appearance!!
The Tuna fishing might not be as fast and furious as it was prior to the storm, but what we may be lacking in total numbers we are way more making up for in SIZE! In the last five days we fished, we have caught at least one yellowfin over 100 lbs., not to mention the regular 50 to 70 lb fish.
The last two days we fished, the rip really got going good. As a matter of fact, the first day that it really went off big time, we came to a small section of it that was loaded with just about every species of fish you could think of. This spot on the rip was maybe only 300 yards long, but it had Tuna busting all over it, and Marlin knocking Dolphin into the sky just about everywhere you looked!! While we were making bait as fast as possible, a VERY LARGE Marlin started chasing a 30 lb Dolphin around, and the dolphin decided to use our boat to hide under. What a show!! With bait made, we pulled off the rip a way, and tossed a couple of baits out, A big bait for the Marlin, and a small bait for a Tuna. Both baits got creamed about the same time with a Tuna on the Tuna bait, and A giant Wahoo on the Marlin bait!?!?
The Wahoo turned out to be about 80lbs and the Tuna was about 60 lbs.
The biggest Tuna we pulled off this spot was about 140lb.
Capt Mike Gray and Capt Beach were in the same spot with us, and Capt Mike wound up releasing a nice Blue and his biggest Tuna was 147lb.
Beach got dumped by one VERY LARGE Tuna, but managed to put several BIG Yellows in the box as well as a 62lb Dolphin!!!
The only problem with this place was we all got to it toward the end of the day, and we had to leave it while it was still going off in order to get back to the fuel docks before they closed so we could refuel and ice up for the next morning.
We will be able to keep Snapper through July 17th, and I am open July 10th - 12, and 16th - 20th so if you want in on some of the fun, give us a call.

Looks like we're finally gonna get back on the water this Thursday!!!
This had to be the craziest weather we've ever had for June, but finally the forecasts are looking good again, and I can't wait to get back on the water!!

Snapper season is still set to end July 10th, but the good news is I still have some days available. We actually are open this coming Tueday through Friday, so if you'd like to go give me a call. The best way to contact me is either voice mail or text, as I'll check both on the way up the river every day.

The Tuna fishing was as good as I have ever seen prior to the big wind, so I think they'll still be going crazy, but we'll find out this Thursday.

This may sound like a broken record, but the Tuna fishing out of Venice is as good as I have ever seen it!! The weather has temporarily put a halt to the slaughter fest we have been experiencing, but we should be back on the water Wednesday. The trips we got in before the weather went south were a BALL! We had some old, and new freinds aboard the Poco Loco. It's always great to see our old freinds and the new ones were special in that they were young familys complete with Mom, Dad, and children. Some of the children were 9- 10 years old, and they were really fun to have on the boat.
Back to the Tuna. The bite is the most insane thing I have ever seen!!!
Lots of live bait and being at the spot early in the morning are still key, but when it all comes together the bite is so crazy we don't even put baits in the water till after we live chum for a minute. After the live chum has been in the water for about 30 seconds it looks like a bomber just dropped a load of bombs 20 fteet behind the boat!! When the bombs start going off we start throwing baits with hooks into the carnage, and hook up as fast as they hit the water. We continue hooking up till we run out of anglers, and then start the dance of over, under, front, back. In general trying to do whatever it takes to keep the fish from tangeling up. I know our guests think we have lost our minds because we throw the fish staright into the ice holes or even on the deck without ever getting pics because as fast as we get the hook out we throw it back in the water with another bait on it because the fact is the bit ends pretty quick, and when it's over it's over. The good news is we normally have 8 - 12 Tuna in the boat before its over. Then we slow down a bit get some pics.
The Snapper are obviously easy to get, and are good size. Most of them are running 10-15 lbs, but a few have come in pushing 30lbs.
The Marlin are still on the rampage, and it seems like even if your not trying to get one you still have a good shot at tangling with one on any given day.
The only player that seems to be missing is the Dolphin. Maybe they will show after this blow.
I still have a few days during June and more in July. If you want to ride give us a call or text as the computer service in Venice is still poor, and I check voice mail and texts every day on the way back up the river.
Almost forgot!! Check face book for Jerry Allen. My youngest son / deck hand, Hunter just finished a pretty cool video. You can find it on my face book page or go to u-tube and search for 'a day aboard Poco Loco'
Hope you like it, we got some video of a 'sun' fish AKA mola mola.

CRAZY GOOD!!! That pretty much describes the Tuna fishing out of Venice this past week. The fish still seem to be just about any direction you go, but each spot seems to have their differences. Some spot are absolutley covered up with 30 to 40 lb. fish while other spots have fewer fish, but the fish seem to be bigger.
It's still fishing and some days you'll be talking to yourself before finally cracking the code for the day.
Live bait continues to be frustrating as some days all it takes is 10 minutes and the bait wells are overflowing with bait, while other days 30 minutes work yeilds bait wells that are still empty.
The only common thread to whats going on with the Tuna fishing is the time you make it to your favorite spot. The earlier the better!!!
The last day we fished we elected to go to one of the big fish spots and were the second boat there, and the baits lasted about 30 seconds before being crushed by really big fish.
The next bait out got crushed before we could even get a second bait in the water, and so it went untill we hooked the last fish that took us two hours to finally get in the boat.

The Marlin are still doing their best to terrorize evry boat in sight. While we were hooked up to the last fish of the day, Capt Hunter happened to be bringing two 80 lb fish to the boat when a REALLY BIG Marlin decided he wanted a snack. With one of the Tuna at boatside, and just about to be gaffed the Marlin came out from under the boat and swallowed the 80 lb fish like it was an M&M. Then it swam over to the second fish and swallowed that one too. Capt. Will Wall was in the process of making laps around the rig
pulling a 5 lb. Hardtail trying to catch this brute, when Hunter called to tell him he needed a BIGGER bait!!!

Upon returning to the dock, Capt Bill Butler returned from a day of fun fishing. He had released two of the guys in blue suits and jumped two more off. All of the fish were from the same spot!!

I don'e see how it can get any better except for the fact that Snapper season opens this Friday!!

If you want in on some of the action
give us a call. I still have Sunday the 10th, and 30th open and a few more week days during the month.
My internet service is really poor in Venice so cell phone is the best way to make contact. I check for text messages and voiuce mail every day on the way back to the dock.

The Tuna fishing out of Venice remains as good as I have ever seen it!! There seem to be fish just about everywhere you go, although some of the are holding plenty of fish that just wont eat what we have, as they are keyed in on some really small baits.

Some things that have changed since my last report is that the fish have moved back in close, so quick days and small fuel tickets are the norm, and at one spot the fish are BIG. The last day we fished the first two baits got crushed about 30 seconds after hitting the water. The first fish up was a solid 90 lb fish and the second was 110lb. The day before, we hooked a fish that we never could stop. We finally broke him off after about 30 minutes, and most of our spool still in the Gulf. I think he chewd through the leader. The same day Capt Trey hooked a stud only to pull the hook 2 1/2 hours later, and never even got a look at the fish.
As I said early days are pretty much the norm. Some of the guys are done by 9:00 AM. The last day we fished we hit the dock at 4:00 PM with 10 Tuna and limits of AJ's.
I really don't see how the fishing can get any better, except, Oh yea, I forgot, Red Snapper season is about to open and the rip is probably going to go off big time about the same time.
Can you say blind dog in a butcher shop?

If you havn't already done it, secure a ride and get in on some of the fun.

Capt. Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

We just finished up a few trips after the last blow we had, and I'm happy to report the Tuna fishing is still CRAZY good. The first day back on the water was a little tough to get dialed back in due to the fact that the Tuna changed the pattern they had been in for the last several weeks. They had been in on the shelf, but with about a zillion sharks on those rigs I guess the Tuna decided to push on to deeper water. We finally figured out they had really pushed pretty far out, but when we found them there were still plenty of them to go around.
Live bait continues to be sketchy at best,so we're still trying to get live Poggies because the Tuna seem to really like them..... that is when we can find them. Somedays, we get one net full and we're gone, on other days, it's 1 hour of throwing the net and 4 Poggs in the live well. The good news is that the Tuna seem to really like red meat. The last day was the best day we had as we wound up with 12 Yellows in the ice hole, and all but a handfull were taken chunking with red meat while the others fell for poppers.

I really lucked out with the last two crews. Both crews brought so much gear that I just took all my stuff off the boat. I felt like a kid in a candy store with all of this high dollar stuff on the boat. Some of the reels I still don't know how to pronounce the name of, but really cool stuff. What's even better is that they all really knew how to use it. I pretty much kicked back and watched. The crew never stopped working. Jigging, popping, chunking, and live baiting, and several times all of this was going on at the same time!!! CRAZY!!

The Marlin are still trying to steal the show. Several were caught, and again, I feel like the only one that didn't get the visit from the man in the Blue suit. Capt Lee had two... in the same day!? Capt Eddy had one that they did the Palm Beach release on, and Capt Will Wall had about a 300lb one that I'm sure you'll be seeing pics of as he said he had about a 10 minute photo shoot with the fish.

If you have the itch, load up and get to Venice.

The Tuna fishing out of Venice remains solid most days and stellar on others. Last Wednesday the Tuna were knee deep around the cleaning tables. I didn't get to fish that day, but heard tale of several of the boats getting 15 or more. Gotta love that! Thursday through Sunday the wind cranked up again and I think by Monday everyone had thrown in the towel. Thursday through Sunday we continued to get lots of yellows although nothing like Wednesday. Five to seven Yellows seemed to be the norm, but all's good because it seemed to be an early morning bite, so while they were on the chew it was pretty fast and fun. Once they would go down we'd move inshore a bit and play with the AJ's and the random Cobia or two so the fish box's were pretty full when we'd hit the dock.

Most of us stayed in close due to the rough seas and prolific numbers of Yellow that were on the shelf. Most of the fish on the shelf are still of the smaller variety, although a few of them went over 100lb.
Capt Josh Howard chose to make the long run several days in a row and was rewarded with some REALLY nice fish. Several were over 100lbs, and all the rest were 80-90lbs. Only problem is that poor Josh seems to be several inches shorter than when he started this little Gulf walk about. Don't know how he was able to find willing particapants for the saes we were in, but more power to him!! LOL.
Keep your eyes peeled for the picks as I'm sure he'll be posting them soon. Really NICE fish.

We were able to fish two days last week and I am pleased to report that the fishing in Venice is still CRAZY GOOD! I was a bit worried after the first front blew out as it left some pretty chilly air behind, but it didn't matter because the fish were still on the chew! My first day was a little tuff as we spent a too long making bait and the Tuna bite was about over when we finally found the fish. Not a problem, as we were still were able to manage some Yellows and a few Blacks. The guys I had were not really Tuna addicts and were more interested in a mixed bag, so we headed inshore and wore out the AJ's and managed a few Cobia to sweeten the pot.
The second day was really good! Made bait early,so we got to the spot early and the Tuna were HUNGRY! They gobbled up the livies at first, but then started going down. When they got about 150 ft. deep, we couldn't get them up any more, but Capt Eddie Burger came to the rescue by throwing us a couple of Bonita. The first couple of drifts 'chunking' we were doubling up!!! GOTTA LOVE IT!! It was about then I began thinking about getting in early with everyone's limit, right? WRONG!, cause not long after we started chunking, the sharks moved in! Dog gone it.
Oh well, this crew was also interseted in a mixed bag, so we headed back for AJ's and Cobia.
The CRAZIEST thing about whats going on this year has to be the incredible number of Blue Marlin terrorizing the boats. I think we were the only boat that was not visited by the 'man in the blue suit' the past couple of days.
As I said earlier, the fishing is still VERY GOOD and we still have some days left in May, as well as, this Sunday so if you want in on some of the fun just LOAD UP!!

I seem to have lost more trips than I ran this last week,but I still managed to make it out this past Saturday and the fishing is still OFF THE CHAIN in Venice!!!
The shrimp boats are still in place, but because of the big blow last week most of them are justing getting back offshore which means most of them have no fish on them yet, and that was the case with the ones we hit on the way to the lump. I think we hit two or three boats in clean green water, but no fish under them. Capt Michael Gray was lucky enopugh to find a shrimp boat with fish on it and did very well so wont be long and all the shrimpers should be loaded up again.
Anyway, on to the lump we go and nada, zip, zero! Darn I hate it when that happens! We pointed Poco Loco South and off we went. I elected to go long and don't mind telling you I was a little hesitant because of this spots 'hit or miss' tendency as of late, but when we got there we were greated by 'skying' Tuna. Gotta love that! The guys we had were all from NY were all very good anglers. Most of them owned there own boats back home and did a lot of Bluefin fishing so it was great to hear of the big fish they get up that way. As I said these guys were great anglers and they wasted no time throwing poppers, and jigging. Both tactics worked well. Once we knew exactly where the fish were located we set up and started chunking. I was confident we were about to sink the boat with fish, but one drift, two drifts, and three drifts later we had no takers. With lots of fish still in the area we swiched top pulling baits, two shacky baits close and two daisy chains with birds on them long and two guys in the front of the boat armed with poppers for the unlucky fish that came too close. We started picking fish up and then sveral other boats showed up and things really slowed so my guys voted to try and make live bait. We spent about 30 minutes trying to make bait and got one. We set back up and sent the live bait out and were going to start chunking as well, but about 45 seconds after the livie hit the water the line satrted screaming! This was a nice solid Yellow, but the guys made short work of him, and in no time he was in the ice hole and we were back trying for more bait. Picked up one more bait and fed him to a hungry Cuda. Darn it I hate that.
We finished up the day with 8 Yellows and headed for the barn feeling pretty good about the day and actually thinking we may be among the top boats of the day, but then I get back to find out Capt Josh Howard had 12, and Eddy Burger had 12 or 13. Way to go guys! Best news is that the fish seem to be pretty much everywhere. Eddy was in close, and several other guys were in close and were oppisite sides of the river, but all did well. Josh and I both went long and the fish were there also.
I can't help but think this is going to be a VERY GOOD year for us in Vnice as things just keep looking better.

Capt Jerry Allen Venice, LA USA

Monday and Tuesday the Tuna fishing was about as good as it gets, but then came Wednesday and it went OFF THE CHAIN!!!
The only problem I have is that I did not get to participate in the action Tuesday or Wednesday as I had no trips! Wednesday the fish were behind the shrimp boats like they should have been for the last several days,and they were there with a vengience. Most every boat came back with lots of fish and congrats to Capt Eddie Burger for his 198lb. Yellow.
The fishing the past several days has
really been good. An example of that is Capt Will Wall left the dock at noon Monday, and ran six miles out
and in no time had a 150lb Yellow in the boat. He said he was in site of the light house the whole time they were fighting the fish.
Seems like the shrimpers have finally been able to stay offshore long enough for all the Tuna to find them and with this next front only lasting a couple of days, and not getting too awfull rough I think the shrimpers will stay in place and keep attracting more Tuna!!
I am way excited to get back on the water for a little pay back as I said earlier I misseed out on all but one of the best days. We fished Friday through Monday with mixed results. We had a couple good days with Blacks ready to eat anything we fed them and we wound up with a couple of Yellows, although we never had one go over a 100lb. All in all throw in a couple of AJ's and some Scamp and all is good.
This front should be out of here and hopefully we will be back on the water by Wednesday. I have Friday open so if anyone wants a shot at a really big Yellow give me a call.
