Grand Isle Tuna Fishing Report
<p>Another great weekend of GREEN WATER fishing. We headed out Friday night on an over fishing trip in hope of finding blue water. We went 120 miles out and still no blue water. I did talk to one of the supply boats heading in from way offshore and he told me it was close and pushing north. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon and the summertime fishing along the rips will be in close.
We arrived at the platform around 7:00p.m. I was still letting the first bait out and fish on. We put yellowfin tuna in the box�until midnight one after another. We ended up with 13 yellowfin several blacfin and a limit of 10lb Red Snapper we picked�up on the way out. Grand Isle Charter fishing has been incredible this year.
�We have been catching one or two yellowfin tuna over 100lbs on almost every over night trip. Our group for the tarpon rodeo July 22nd through the 26th could not find a place to stay so the twin vee is open. We have had at least 1 fish place in the top 3�every year for the past eleven years.
We will be fishing out of bridge side marina in grand isle Louisiana. Don't miss out on a trip of a lifetime. The pictures are from an overnight trip�this past�weekend.

Bio: Born and raised in Louisiana fishing has been our passion since we were kids. I have fished all over the world, but nothing compares to the fishing in South Louisiana. I have fished the entire coast, but Port Fourchon is where I call home. You won't find a lot of fisherman around with all the oil company's in Port Fourchon, but less than 30 minutes away is Grand Isle, Louisiana. The island has all the restaurants, lodging and entertainment you will need. There are many thing to do in Grand Isle for the whole family, including surf fishing, pier fishing, a beach for the kids, and much more. We can run east to fish the beautiful rips that the Mississippi river forms for Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, and Wahoo, or travel to the ever so popular midnight lump just an hour and a half from the dock. The midnight lump is where 150lb. tuna are caught daily from mid December to late March. By running South after passing through the Ship shoal area, you can find any species you want. The green canyon are also one of our favorite spots being over 80 miles offshore and two to five thousand feet of water. At some of the offshore platforms, you will find more tuna than you care to real in, with Bull Dolphin, Wahoo, and Marlin as a bonus. Out there you will be in paradise all by yourself. Now if a trophy Red Snapper, Lemon Fish, or Grouper is what you are after, I will probably take you west to the structures in the South Timbalier block. No matter what direction we head, you have the chance to catch any species you desire. Just let us know what you are after and we should be able to find them. Fishing season is excellent year around, but some species are really abundant at certain times while they are spawning. The only season that closes is Red Snapper from Septrmber 1 thru March 31.
