    Any interest in fishing Venice for top water tuna and wahoo during the holidays as weather may permit?

    I am heading there Dec 12-13. Also fishing with Captain Eddie. Planning to bring Halco 130’s Tuna Hunter junior poppers and some knife jigs. Any other recommendations? I have only fished Venice once before and it was all bait action...

    If not, H4L jigs has the same jig for substantially less.
    some other good ones as well

    Top water tuna in water that is dirty on top. Smaller baits that mimic pogies trapped in schools. Wahoo and jacks on troll around rigs. Very little jigging action due to better odds on the first two. If Eddie suggests you use one of his lures, listen.

    Neil, Charles and I are heading there with one of my YouTube subscribers George and his son! Hopefully we do as good as our last trip together (they are with the fish in my Avatar)!

    spoke to Eddie, he will rig me up with a Halco 190 with wire to cast with my Titan if we hook up a wahoo, and I will keep a tuna hunter junior on my Carpenter and a Williamson Benthos jig rigged on my Synit for popping and jigging. Will try the Ocea Jigger 4000 Valley Hill combo for chunk or bait! Will do a tackle box video and some videos during the trip!

    We are driving there from Dallas. Looking forward to being at the dock 5:45 on Saturday!

    Trip is booked. Staying on a houseboat at Venice Marina. Still got a slot available. Arriving 25 Dec. Hoping to fish the 26th. If not looking for the 27th. If the winds blow us out offshore we may try for an inshore or two. Going to travel no matter and enjoy fish camp with a few shrimps on the side to travel home. Joins us..

    This trip is on a bucket list with my brother and I for wahoo/YFT. Tricep surgery pushed it back a year or two, so maybe 2022 I'll make it there.

    Do the physical therapy and then build some strength back in the one arm and up in the other and plan a trip for 2021. I have the pleasure of fishing with my young adult boys. Go and make the memories...

    Ammar,
    We are heading to Venice tomorrow. We are 4 fishermen and a lady angler so we have room for one. We will be staying Dec 25 and 26th in a one bedroom houseboat that is located in the marina we are fishing from.Meal plan is already in motion. We will be fishing Dec 26 and 27th. Returning to the marina at night so limits are daily. Captain Eddie has a Contender 39 ST. Nice boat with lots or room and goes fast. We will probably see the sun rise and set from the boat both days. Look at you private messages for the amount.
