Yellowfin tuna

Yellowfin tuna can be targeted year-round out of Venice Louisiana. Different times of the year offer different opportunities for bigger fish, and different tactics to catch them. Generally most of the fish over 150 pounds are caught in the winter months October through February but this is also the lease predictable of the weather. March through September is also very good for yellowfin tuna fishing and offers a more stable weather pattern. The summer fish are generally more of a school in size 40 to 60 pounds although it is not uncommon to get a fish well over 100 pounds on any given day.
Yellow fin are targeted several ways, live baiting is probably the most productive although live bait is not always available. They also respond well to chunking and chumming.
