Default June 24-28 Venice report

Had a pretty good run at the fish after a couple of days off due to winds. Blue water has been a bit indecisive lately, but either way we are, and have been catching tuna all month long. Some days you need to devote a whole day to tuna as opposed to splitting time between tuna fishing and pulling the rips all day for marlin and mahi, but you can't go wrong with either decision right now as the riplines have formed up in close nicely since Sunday. Snapper fishing is usually reserved for the ride in, as they are everywhere and the 2 fish per person limit makes for quick box-fillers and delicious meals back at the dock. We have a few openings left for July and August is filling up fast, so visit our website and check us out. Also have July 5-6 open.

That's really a good grade of tunner fish, especially the next to last pic!

I used to have a friend who bragged about catching box-loads of yellowfin off Wilmington, NC every spring. He showed me pictures of them -- all fish in the 20-35 pound range. He always taked about Wilmington/Cape Fear as the best place on earth to fish, because after the three week tuna run, they got to catch king mackeral the rest of the season.

Then our fishing club had a tournament at Venice, and he came as a guest. None of the eleven boats that fished that tournament had ever even seen the place before. The first day of the tournament, the boat he was on caught seven yellowfin, from 60 to 140 pounds; two yahoos in the 30-pound range, and a blue marlin -- all between Congnac and Lena!

We never heard anything about the great fishing off Wilmington again!
