Member since April 2016

Venice, United States

Background
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.
Techniques
Here in the Gulf off of the Louisiana coast we target fish in a wide variety of ways. live bait when available, drift and chunk also produces good fish. Trolling a spread is very affective on the rips in the spring. Deep dropping for swordfish and tiles. All kinds of artificials such as poppers and verticle jigs.

Last weekend the seas were a little rough but if you made it out the bite was good. Both the shelf rigs and the floaters produced good Yellowfin. We fished the a shelf rig in the morning and had… Read Full Report →

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!

We had a great time with Capt. Jeff and his mate . These guys worked hard to put us on the fish . We caught fish all day , when the bite slowed up on the Tuna , we moved and got on the big Amberjack . We will definitely book our next trip to Venice with Louisiana Tuna Charters. The boat was very comfortable, and they used all Shimano equipment that was in excellent condition. This is a top notch operation, and I would recommend them to anyone.
