Venice Offshore Forecast

We have already been successful fishing yellowfin tuna in Venice behind the shrimp boats. There are many tricks to this type of fishing. I would definitely hire a guide if it’s your first time. It can be extremely dangerous if you do not know what to do. A few yellowfin over 100 pounds have been landed but nothing over 200 to report at this point. This is my favorite time of year to fish. The weather is not as hot and the action is on fire. One tip I can give for this time of year is to try fishing with large live mullet. The tuna are in close and feeding on spawning mullet. Mullet move offshore and dive into deep water to push the eggs out of their bodies. While making their annual pilgrimage offshore 100 pound plus size tuna await, some mullet make it, some become dinner. Come on down to Venice before heading to the woods this winter. The trophy yellowfin tuna fishing time of year is here. Good Luck and stay safe out there.
