Captain Cook Charters

237 Sports Marina Road
Venice LA, United States

Captain Cook Charters specialize in fishing the Gulf of Mexico for offshore species out of Venice, Louisiana. They are true experts in targeting large Yellowfin Tuna and will take you to the most productive grounds where you can experience what it’s like to tackle monster Tuna.

The crew is led by Captain Andy Cook who’s been fishing for many years and knows the waters of Louisiana like no one else. He is a kind and patient man who loves taking whole families with children out and teaching them reel in the fish of their dreams.

You will fish aboard his 38 foot Fountain offshore sport fishing boat, powered by three 300 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots. The boat is equipped with all the safety equipment and electronics, and also features outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, and an icebox for the catch.

Captain Cook will provide you with all the fishing gear you’ll need when targeting species such as Yellowfin Tuna, big Red Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo, Amberjack and other big game offshore species.

Once you return to the dock, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home and make a lovely dinner. Nothing beats eating your own catch after a big fight and all the energy invested into reeling it in!

First time fishing out of Venice. Had an excellent experience Capt. Andy was very
accommodating and knowledgeable.  We caught a lot of fish and a wide variety. Equipment
and boat were first class. Capt. Cook was great in handling all details making our trip perfect.
Would most definitely recommend, and will be back soon!!!!!

Capt Andy Cook was top notch. The day we went was forecast for heavy seas and all the other Capts. cancelled their trips. As i said it was forecast for heavy seas and Capt. Cook explained the conditions to us and it was our decision to go and he said it was his decision to turn back if he he thought it was unsafe. We went and it was rough out there but Capt Cook was more then able to handle the conditions.
Now both of us are former navy and everything was handled in a safe/professional manner. Might have been a little uncomfortable with the seas, but it was worth it. Big tune are worth it. Capt. Cook put us on hot spots and we got two nice yellow fins 70lb+ and 80lb+. Filled each of our refrigerators and they taste great. would have been nice to have smooth seas, but you have to talk to the man upstairs for that.
I highly recommend Capt Cook Charters to everyone. It was a great experience, and that comes from a couple 78 year old f*rts. Wish i could send pictures, but quite frankly i don’t know how.
I might add that i am an amateur when it comes to fishing but Capt. Cook was a great teacher. I would recommend this trip for children, but not with the seas we had.
