It also comes equipped with Simrad 12” sounders/plotters, two VHF radios, state of the art radar, outriggers, downriggers, center rigger, high quality fishing gear, live bait tank, and icebox. All in all, this boat is ready for some serious sportfishing action.

About the Captain

Jeff Schneider
Venice, Louisiana, United States
Member since April 2016
From a young age I always wanted to be a charter captain, although I ended up chasing my dream of riding motorcycles. As that career was winding down I turned all my focus on fishing. Moved from Florida to Louisiana and the rest is history. I am now pursuing my new career with the same determination and drive to be the best.

Excellent trip today with capt Jeff!  We hooked up early and often with the yellow fins.  We also hooked up with two swords but they proved allusive, but that certainly was not due to a lack of effort from the crew.  All in all capt Jeff and crew were top notch I would certainly recommend him and his boat to all my friends and family.  I will certainly be back!

We fished two days with Capt. Jeff last weekend and caught lots of tuna - both yellowfin and blackfin - as well as a swordfish. Capt. Jeff was very helpful guiding us through bringing in the fish and answered all of our questions. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We’re definitely planning another trip in the fall.

We booked Capt. Jeff for a two day fishing trip and it was top notch! Comfortable boat, experienced, helpful captain and a damn good time! We fish in Florida but mostly inshore so it was nice to get into some deep water to catch our first swordfish and plenty of yellowfin and backfin tuna - I’m still sore! Highly recommend Louisiana Tuna Charters - we’ll be booking them again in October!
