Default Venice Tomorrow

Sparkles, Reaper33, dpatterson1976, panhandlehunter and I will be heading east tomorrow to chase fat yellowfin tuna in Venice. Reports have been heating up in the recent weeks with several over 200#'s being caught. Weather forecast is looking great with highs in the mid 80's, light winds and sunny. The marine forecast isn't terrible either with less than 3's predicted for Saturday and 2-4's for Sunday.

Here's a few teaser pics from recent reports.

One day I'd like to pull in one of those hunks of meat. That's got to be a battle!

I was down there last weekend. Only got 1 yellowfin. Lots of black fin and amberjack, as well as bonita for sharkathon. At least the yellow was guesstimate at 120# or so. Good luck, hope you smash on them.
