Yellowfin Tuna are one of the most coveted game fish in the world. Good thing Venice, Louisiana has an EPIC tuna bite when fishing there in March! I teamed up with Cami & Jen for our last day of fishing with Tripletail Charters and yep, you guessed it: we were on the hunt for MASSIVE Yellowfin Tuna. Bummer we couldn’t get the kayak on the plane and fight one of these monsters right on the water, but the pilot said no way! 😆❌
A big thanks to Capt. Blake and first mate Heidi for not only a successful day catching Yellowfin, but a great trip overall! We caught so many Blackfin Tuna as well and really enjoyed our time there. Y’all just wait, my uncle Austin is too dang funny and had us cracking up the whole trip! He’s right though, catching a 200lb YFT can be equated to, “dragging a wet couch off the bottom.” Incredible endurance, long runs, and just a tough fight overall, I highly recommend you set up a trip in Venice during February or March when the lump is on fire!! 🔥
Drop a like and comment if you can and stay tuned for part II of this video where we turn one of the Yellowfin Tuna into dinner back home in Alabama! MMMM the sushi was just phenomenal.
