Shrimp / Trawl Boat Chasing
Out of our area there are a lot of offshore shrimp boats working. These boats attract the fish to them because of the by-catch thrown back into the water. Pretty much anytime of the year these boats attract fish. We chunk , troll and sight cast around them while they work. In August of 2005, ‘Cajun Venture’ boated the 2nd largest gulf record yellowfin tuna chunking these boats. Typically the months of Sept- Nov are the best for world class yellowfin tuna but even April – August you can expect to catch tuna, dolphin, wahoo, mackerel, sharks, cobia and bonita. The action literally can be so fast you are walking on fish at the bottom of your boat because you can’t get them in the fishbox fast enough! A lot of time coming in or going out on Overnight Trips, Regular Offshore Trips or Extended Bluewater trips we make sure to check these boats.
