The weather forecast was calling for calm seas off Louisiana and rough here in Texas for the next few days, so my cousin Wayne and I took a few personal days and headed to Venice. We drove all night trailering my boat and got there shortly after sun rise. After running down the Mississippi River we fished our way out to about 30nm off the south west pass to a couple of floating rigs. Wayne landed a 32 lbs wahoo and had a skipjack tuna cut in half by a barracuda. That night we caught more blackfin than we knew what to do with. We used some for chunking and caught a 85 lbs yellow fin around sun rise. We broke off several more and decided to head back in. We found the rip with in 10 miles of the jetties and started trolling. We picked up a small yellow fin and lots of black fin and a few small dolphin.
Had an Afternoon Jetty trip today. Found a nice school of Reds that were hitting as soon as the bait touched the bottom. Landed 5 before a storm ran us back to the dock.
Went out for a quick trip last night to the jetties with my friend Rican. We left the dock at 6:30pm and got back at 9:30. We landed 4 bull Reds and a black drum. The 2 large Reds were over 30 lbs. We also had a few big ones that got away. Over all it was some steady action and a fun trip.
My Friend Nick and I went to the jetties for a quick late evening trip and landed solid Reds and Black Drum
