After a little lull tuna bite is getting better for us. Fishing hard and grinding is getting the job done. We have Aug 18 open. Amberjack season will open in August and that?s a guaranteed way to get some white meat after catching tuna. Give us a call Captain Dylan ?(225) 287-5821?

Man that's nice to hear! Are they still pretty far out? Last I heard was 60 to 80 miles.

So what is it gonna take for them to start moving in? We caught yellow fin behind the shrimp boats in the middle of August 2 years ago. Doesn't look like that is going to happen this year, unless they just one day up and push in with a certain moon phase that triggers them hell I don't know.

They are highly migratory. They can move in overnight, or not. Might be tomorrow, might be in 3 weeks. You just have to stay on top of them and be willing to work when they don’t make it easy.

Ten four Cap! Thanks for the good pictures and info on our tasty friends!! We usually put in work when they are in. I have never been on an 'epic' tuna bite but the hard work pays off for us when we find them. One or two yellowfin can really make the trip, I cant imagine a limit hahaha. Thank you again for sharing and responding!
