So my buddy is having a baby in October and I want to put together a Tuna trip as a celebration. Maybe 4-6 guys on the boat. Was thinking Venice, but I know zero about it that area. Or maybe an overnight out of Destin, which I am fairly familiar with and know a few captains over there.

What would you do?

TIA!!

Venice tuna in October, late October will be shrimp boat season. Good times for sure. We fish 4 guys but have fished up to 6.

Overnight, I would go out of Orange Beach. 4-6 guys and yall could square dance wiht all of the space you will have.

If you have contacts, I would inquire with them, but it's a long run from Destin. There are a good many out of Orange Beach and it's closer.

I have never really had a bad experience over there. I have fished everything from 42LR Freeman down to 31 Yellowfin. Depends on the amount of fuel you want to burn. In the fall you dont typically run as far so the fuel burns arent near as bad as the Summer.

are some of the guys i have fished with. They are all a bit different in how they operate but your doing the same thing no matter what. The smaller boats with younger guys tend to be more comfortable fishing the way you want to fish.

I believe Banana Tom does a yearly trip from Venice if he chimes in.

The names mentioned above are well known commodities and there is a reason for that. I would stick with the list above!

If you want to go out of Destin hit up Captain Adam Peeples of One Shot Charters. He will put you on some big tunas just as well as anyone and you won't be limited if you wanted the family to come and make a vacation out of it.
