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. Captain Cook also works with friend and skilled angler, Captain Jason Lowrance, who may sometimes run Captain Cook Charters trips. You’re in safe hands with either of these seasoned guides.

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!
