When you book
a tuna fishing charter you’ll embark on one of
the most fast paced and exciting fishing experiences
you’ve ever had.
Because yellowfin tuna are such
fast swimmers that are constantly moving through the
water, they create a stimulating fishing challenge.
Yellowfin tuna are also commonly referred to as ahi,
and they are a very popular sport and commercial fishing
The Louisiana Gulf coast is one of the few locations
worldwide that offers a year round tuna fishing season.
Because of this year round season, tuna fishing trips
can be booked with Capt. Trey Pique at Voodoo Fishing Charters during anytime of the year. Throughout the
winter months, tuna can generally be caught at the infamous
Midnight Lump located just 50 miles off the coast
of Venice, Louisiana. When the weather is warmer, tuna
are caught throughout the Gulf waters.
Why is tuna a great target for sport fishing?
- Quick swimming speed provides a challenge
- Travel in schools that can be seen at the water’s surface
- Offers exciting fishing experiences year round
Capt. Pique will travel anywhere from 7 to 75 miles
offshore from Venice, Louisiana to find a prime fishing
spot. Once the fishing has begun, several strategies
such as live baiting, top water fishing, chumming and
kite fishing can all be used to catch quality tuna.
Each person on the trip is allowed three tuna by the
legal bag limit. On average, tuna that are caught in
the Gulf of Mexico weigh in between 40 and 60 pounds,
but we have managed to catch some that have been as
large as 180 pounds.
While on a tuna fishing charter, you also have the opportunity to catch other fish including marlin, dolphin and wahoo. Tuna fishing provides a fun, fast paced trip for both experienced fishermen and new comers.
