Giant Red Snapper - Mangrove - Grouper Fishing Report

July 3rd, 2012 No comments

The Gulf Cost weather looks great for the next week I can't wait to enjoy the calm seas. We have had an incredible fishing season so far. We are averaging limits of red snapper in the 15 plus pound range and had 7 red snapper over 30lbs and one over 40lbs so far this year. The yellowfin tuna have showed up on almost all the offshore floating platforms. The rip lines have started forming up. Bradley and woody ran the boat this weekend and caught a boat full of yellowfin tuna along with some wahoo and dolphin on the way in  a grass line. We've been catching a few cobia and doing really well on the mangrove snapper fishing. There are so many snapper in the gulf it has been hard to target grouper but we've been managing to put a few in the boat. This has been an incredible year so far. The over night charter trips have been very productive. Come try an offshore charter fishing trip out of Grand Isle. Louisiana's best kept secret.

For anyone that enjoys the outdoors. Check out the sportsman channel today at 3:30 pm. We filmed and episode of "the Syndicate Hunting Show" with Clark Dixon and Chad Belding at our deer lease in Kansas. It's a really good show. We also filmed our hunt in Alaska it comes on later in the season.

Thanks,

Tuna Fishing - Grand isle Louisiana - May 09

July 30th, 2010 No comments

The offshore fishing was incredible this week.  We headed out Thursday with a 3 man crew of Kevin Bloom and friends. On the way offshore we stopped to try a little cobia fishing. It worked out great. We went 2 for 3 on cobia(lemon fish), caught our live bait and decided to head offshore for some yellow fin tuna fishing. We made the long run out to one of my favorite yellowfin tuna fishing spots and it was on. We were hooked up to yelllowfin tuna for almost 3 hours straight.

We had our limit of yellow fin tuna, which was 9 fish weighing between 40 and 60lbs. We decided to head in and try our luck at some amberjack. We made a quick stop picked up a quick limit of amberjack weighing 30 to 40lbs. Kevin told me he had never caught a wahoo and would love to catch just one. So I put the baits out and on the first pass we were hooked up. One nice 30lb wahoo and we were back on the move headed north. We decided to make one last stop where we had seen the cobia earlier and picke up one last fish. We were headed in, worn out with an ice chest full of fish and plenty of smiles from the trip.

Saturday we had Justin and his crew from Lafayette ready to go chase some yellowfin tuna. We stopped on the way out and caught a limit of amberjack, caught some live bait and headed south to one of our favorite yellow fin tuna fishing spots.  The first hour was a little slow, but after that it was fish on for the next four hours. We ended up with 12 yellow fin tuna and decided to head back north for some cobia and wahoo fishing.  We had a couple of knock downs, but never landed a wahoo.  We stopped and picked up some cobia, lost one over 60lbs at the boat and saw several others that wouldn't bite.  With the ice chest full and everyone worn out we decided to head back to the dock.  It was a great weekend of fishing with plenty of ice chests full.

Everyone was full of smiles and had plenty of great stories to tell back at the dock. I had a last minute cancellation for this weekend coming up, which is Memorial weekend and the boat is available for anyone who wants to fish the Oilmen's tournament out of Cocodrie, La.  Don't miss out on a fishing trip of a lifetime! I will post more fishing reports as soon as I get back in from fishing.

What a great week to be on the water. We fished out of Grand Isle. Louisiana this Tuesday and Wednesday. We left both days around 6:00 a.m. out of Bridge Side Marina and headed south looking for tuna and wahoo. Our first location we stopped at was so loaded red snapper we actually hooked 2 of them while trolling. We continued south crossing into blue water about 60 miles offshore. There was some scattered grass but nothing worth fishing. We trolled for a while both days and only landed 1 nice wahoo. We started chuming and the tuna where every where under the boat. We caught tuna after tuna loosing several to sharks. We had to move several times to get away from the sharks. On the way in we stopped to try and catch amberjack. We limited out fast with the amberjack ranging from 40lbs to 80lbs. If you would like to go on a Tuna Fishing Charter of a lifetime, come fish with FISH COMMANDER FISHING CHARTERS.

Went way out of southwest pass for the 4th of July, weather was great and the fishing was also. Brought a friend of mine Matt on leave from the marines out to catch some Tuna, along with Britt, HB, and Robby. We ended up with 7 yellow fin 1 over 100lbs, and 16 blackfin. The rip was not really formed up that good. Trolled for marlin had 1 nice one jump in the baits over 10 times. Hope some one else catches him. Good luck.
