Venice is known for Yellowfin Tuna but you have to get in on our epic Swordfish action! Now is the time!

Right now, the Venice Swordfish bite has been amazing and we’re making a bid for the title of “Home of the Swordfish.” Here at Osprey Charters, we’re putting our clients on multiple Swordfish (like the one below) on nearly every trip!

We’re finding Swordfish about 25 miles offshore and we’re getting our clients to the bite quickly and comfortably aboard the Osprey Charters’ custom Yellowfin center console!


That being said, we’re still in the midst of fantastic Yellowfin Tuna action with our clients catching Yellowfins in the 30-50 pound class with other larger Yellowfins mixed in.


Now that we’re in May with June around the corner, it’s time to start targeting Blue Marlin as the Gulf Stream is known to push closer in to the Venice fishing grounds. We at Osprey Charters have the uncanny ability to raise Blue Marlin and deliver a “bucket list” experience for our anglers.

What’s even better is that we can also target the pelagics that the Blue Marlin love to eat: Tunas and Mahi Mahi! Our “bycatch” like the Mahi Mahi below are considered lifetime catches anywhere else!

Our May calendar is filling up quickly and our June bookings are picking up. NOW is the time to lock in your date to fish with us for the catch – and catches – of a lifetime. Let’s get out there!

Tight Lines,
Captain James
