Tuna fishing Louisiana

Fish Commander Guide Service   Hunting season is over and it’s time to get back on the water. I spent the last few months hunting all over the country, including Alaska with my buddy Clark Dixon. We have been filming for a new show that we are part of called “The Syndicate” which will air on the Sportsman Channel this fall. We were able to take some incredible animals including a giant grizzly bear, wolf, caribou, and some giant rainbow trout. Alaska was the most incredible experience I have ever had. I was also lucky enough to take 3 whitetails over 140 with a bow and 1 over 160 with a gun. It was an incredible year and I will never forget it!

I made my first Charter fishing trip out to the Midnight Lump yesterday. We left out of Bridgeside Marina in Grand Isle at 5:30am and we arrived at the Lump around 7:00. It is right at 42 miles from the marina to the Lump. We chummed most of the day. There were only a few times during the day the fish came up in our chum slick. 3 out of the 4 times we hooked yellow fin tuna, 1 weighing around 140 pounds. We fought the fish for over 2 hours. He fought like he weighed well over 200. We also got a few black fin and a couple of amberjack. I tried dropping down deep a few times and all we caught were red snapper and a giant shark. The big yellowfin tuna are at the lump right now. We headed back out of Bridge side marina again early Saturday morning. I pulled up to lump and we started chumming. Chad started drifting the lines and it was on. We caught fish on every drift. The midnight lump is an incredible fishery. At one time we had a yellowfin tuna, an amberjack, and a wahoo all on at once. Several drifts we hooked up 3 different fish at one time. I found the 60lb pink line worked best for a leader. We ended up with 5 yellowfin tuna, a bunch of blackfin tuna, a limit plus a few catch and release amber jack, wahoo, dorado, and a few others. It's great to be back on the water. Seems like the chances of catching a big fish are better during the week. There was a 237 pound yellow fin tuna brought back to the dock earlier this week that was caught at the lump. What an incredible fish! That was only a few pounds away from the state record. Call us today for Deep Sea Fishing Guided Charters in Grand Isle, Louisiana, I can still fish most of the areas that I used to fish out of Venice And, I can still have the option to fish the Green Canyon , which is an incredible fishery.
