Yellowfin tuna is abundant in the Gulf waters just outside of Venice. In fact, this is one of the few places in the world where you can go tuna fishing during all months of the year. These fish travel in large schools, can reach weights over 100 pounds, and are often found near oil rigs and the famous Midnight Lump.
Yellowfin tuna fishing out of Venice, LA is the most productive than any other fishery. Most yellowfin tuna can be caught within a 1 hour boat ride. Some days we catch them as close as 5 miles off the coast. They can be caught casting, trolling, and live bait fishing. Most tuna roam depths of 250ft to 3,000ft, although they are mostly targeted at the surface.
