Default Venice captains.

Anyone have thoughts on champion charters or safari blue for tuna?

I am not familiar with Champion but you will have a good time with Safari Blue. Mikee is a hoot and knows how to catch fish. my personal preference is triple tail. There are not any charters down there that are sub par....

My personal preference is Eddie Burger. Never had a bad trip with him.

Osprey Charters and Southern Catch are the real deal and some of the most versatile and experienced. Look for guys that can do more than tuna fish in case they're not hungry that day. A sword or marlin or boatload of mahis can really turn a tuna strikeout into a great day.

If Mikee is open go if you can . All mentioned are the best in the business and the bite has been the best I have seen in a long time.

Just went with Pelican Charters. Caught a 178.5 lb YFT and some blackfin. New 41 Onslow Bay rides good with Seakeeper.

We had 2 of our crew get seasick right off the bat but they were able to rally and catch some fish. I credit the Seakeeper for keeping the roll down to help them recover.

Capt John Duplass knows his stuff and we had a ball.

I've fished with Champion before and they work hard and are fun to fish with.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Still deciding from a few hard choices to make. seems like it’s hard to go wrong with the people mentioned.

Thats a SOLID list. I have a place in Venice so Im there quite a bit. The guys on that list are top notch. I would also add Justin Fayard. There are others that are good as well.
