It's been hard to get out this winter with all the bad weather. It seems like the winds been blowing 20+ knots for two months now. We are finally able to get out one day last week and it was worth it. The day started off with three really nice wahoo. Put the baits back out and were able to land several blackfin tuna. Decided to run a little bit further east got to the hotspot and hooked up a giant yellowfin. After two hours a lot of hard work they managed to get the fish in the boat. After a few pictures and high-fives the guys had gotten what they came for, Big fish and a good time. They picked up 4 more nice yellowfin tuna and filled the fish box. The wahoo fishing has been really good this year. It's just been hard to get out with the weather. The tuna are really starting to show up more and more but the midnight lump has just not produced this year so far. The Cobia should be moving in here soon I'm ready to start doing some sight casting for them. Last year the cobia fishing was incredible. If all goes well sounds like we may have at least a 30 day red snapper season this year can't wait to add a few to the fish box. We have two twin vee catamarans and a Sportfisher for comfort. Give us a call next time you want to plan a trip of a lifetime.

March 13, 2015 at 10:16am

The fishing has been really good off the coast of Louisiana so far this year. There has been a lot of big tuna caught off of the lump. The big wahoo have showed up. Capt. Paul and Capt. Bradley went out last week and went 8 for 10 for wahoo, the biggest being over 80 lbs. They caught most of the wahoo on Makiara pulling lures and several on the X-raps. There has been a lot of bait close in and will all of the fish showing up this early, it should be an incredible lump season. Give us a call if you are wanting to get out on the water. We have two 30ft Twin Vee Catamarans if you want to get our there fast and comfortable or a 60 foot Bertram if you want to get out there in style. We have been taking people offshore for almost 20 years now and the calendar is quickly filling up for the year. We also offer lodging and can take care of just about any needs you may have before, during or after the trip.

Few more pics from this June

June 29, 2014 at 10:42pm

The fishing out of Grand Isle has been incredible so far this summer. The tuna are biting in their usual summertime pattern. We have been doing well during the day and incredible at night. We have been catching nice wahoo and mahi mahi on a rip that has formed offshore. The mangroves and cobia have been biting well, and we are also catching a few nice groupers and porgies. Also, we now charter two 60' sport fishers that have 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Both yachts are very comfortable and clean. These are luxury sport fishing yachts. We offer a variety of fishing charters on the sport fishers and the twin vee catamaran. We still have a few open days in July and August, which were productive months last year for yellowfin tuna and grouper. Last year we caught several yellowfin over 100lbs in October, if you are looking for a giant yellowfin tuna these are the months to be down here!
We had a cancellation on the catamaran for the weekend of the Tarpon Rodeo, and it is now a available the 24, 25, and 26. We also have cabins available for rent for Tarpon Rodeo. $150/night plus a $50 cleaning fee. 4 night minimum.

We just got 2 new boats added to the Fish Commander charter fleet. We will be running 12-72 hour trips out of Bridge Side Marina in Grand Isle Louisiana. We now have a 60 foot hatteras and a 60 foot Bertram. Both have 3 bedrooms 3 baths, living room and kitchen. Come ride comfortably in style on one of our luxury yaughts.

May 15, 2014 at 1:55am

The fishing has been incredible this year. We did 2 overnight trips and filled both fish boxes and had to use the customers drink cooler to get the last few fish iced down. There was a rip 100 yards wide with lots of chicken dolphin we only spent a few minutes there it was still forming up. It should be a great year. We only have a few days left in May and June on the catamaran. I'm headed to Destin Tomorrow to pick up a 60 Hatteras that I will be chartering this summer and a 60 Bertram. Both boats will be ready to fish in a week. I will post more pictures when we get back. I will be offering 12 hour trips up to 72 hour trips. Lunch and dinner will be provided. Give us a call for a trip of a lifetime.

We fished 5 days last week and filled the box every day. The tuna fishing has been good. We found some fish in open water 1 yellowfin was almost 140lbs. The wahoo have been hit and miss. We managed to weed through all the snapper and put a few porgies, v liners and snowy grouper in the boat my favorite. The amberjack have been easy to catch once you get pass the sharks. We picked up a few cobia while catching live bait and I noticed a few other boats that landed them. April was one of our best months for tuna last year as long as the weather is good the fishing has been steady. Hope the weather calms down so we can get back out on the water. Give us a call and come on down to Grand Isle. We have lodging right across from the beach and some of the best inshore and offshore fishing in the world.

The season opens this Saturday, June 1st and the weather looks great for that whole first week. We had a last minute cancellation for this Saturday! We also had a cancellation for Monday and Tuesday (June 3 & 4). We've been doing really well with the grouper and had to let go several 30lb plus red snapper already. Can't wait to get out and slam some red snapper. We also have the 16th available. The cobia and mangroves are everywhere and we've been catching some dolphin and wahoo when the rip lines form up. We did really well with yellowfin tuna last week. We now have a 42 foot Bertram available this year and we have a few openings for snapper season. Give me a call if want to get offshore!

What a great week to be on the water. We fished out of Grand Isle. Louisiana this Tuesday and Wednesday. We left both days around 6:00 a.m. out of Bridge Side Marina and headed south looking for tuna and wahoo. Our first location we stopped at was so loaded red snapper we actually hooked 2 of them while trolling. We continued south crossing into blue water about 60 miles offshore. There was some scattered grass but nothing worth fishing. We trolled for a while both days and only landed 1 nice wahoo. We started chuming and the tuna where every where under the boat. We caught tuna after tuna loosing several to sharks. We had to move several times to get away from the sharks. On the way in we stopped to try and catch amberjack. We limited out fast with the amberjack ranging from 40lbs to 80lbs. If you would like to go on a Charter Fishing Trip of a lifetime, come fish with FISH COMMANDER FISHING CHARTERS.

Tuna Fishing Louisiana

April 23, 2010 at 1:35pm

Fishing report from the midnight lump out of Grand Isle Louisiana. Rene and I ran trips Thursday, Friday,and Monday out of Bridge Side Marina. We headed to the Midnight lump in hopes of catching one last chance at some giant yellowfin tuna. We pulled up the water was very dirty and threw out the anchor. First drift it was on or so we thought. First fish was a shark but we kept after it. All in all we ended up catching several nice blackfin tuna, a limit of giant amberjack, some almaco jacks, all the king mackeral you wanted, and let go a few snapper(which there are tons of off the Louisiana coast). Rene tied about 100 hookes due to sharks, But we managed to fill 2 wheel barrows of nice fish each day. Come fish aboard the 32 foot twin vee catamaran and enjoy the confortable ride on a fishing trip of a lifetime.
Below is a video from one of our Offshore Tuna Trips from last summer.

Thanks, capt. Lance Walker

A comment titled: Re: Federal Snapper Season in response to a report titled: Federal Snapper Season

Mike I find it funny that you say the average recreational fishermen that owns a boat is going to resent me yet I'm not supposed to resent anyone who can catch them in state waters and clean them at the dock right in front of me. But The fact of the matter is I don't because I represent the recreational fishermen that cannot afford a boat that's what a lot of you don't understand. I'm not against the guys that own a boat that's great they get to enjoy the fishery we have . But there's no way every fisherman that doesn't own a boat can book a charter in 15 days . Maybe now some of you can see how unfair it really is to me as a charterboat captain and for the average fisherman that can't afford a boat. To the hunter I get it but please tell me how the average fisherman that owns a boat has helped to support me. Please show me one post from the average boat owner that talks about how unfair it is that charter boats can't fish state waters. CCA has sued the Feds because we have 40 days and they want the state to have control. Well the state has control over the state water season and I'm not allowed to fish a single day. I am supporting the average fisherman not just boat owners, how do you not see that. For those who want charter boats to be in the commercial sector that would be great I could fish 365 days a year but I'm trying to help the average recreational fisherman.
Mike please explain what you ment by this 'This is all about corruption. Don't believe all the lies you read when articles are forum post talk about things such as accountability! You are being robbed but don't expect the robber to say that! - '
Please explain who the robber is because if your talking about the Feds I've never seen them post on forums in my life so I'm assuming your talking about charter guys. Just trying to clarify.

This is a quote from a comment posted earlier. 'It is wrong for the recreational fishing season to be different for me than for any other recreational fisherman in Federal waters. Do you see the absurdity in the fact that I would be allowed to keep red snapper on your boat but not on my own boat? -'
Yes I Do and for around 150 days you can catch red snapper in the state waters out of your boat and I can't. I have been personally told by the wildlife and fisheries I will be written a ticket. For 25 days out of the federal season I can catch snapper and you can't. Do the math who's getting screwed. Charter Boats!
Now since a person fishing on a charter spends an average of $400 a year fishing with me, then a person who owns a boat spends thousands of dollars to have a boat each year, which one of these would you say was the average joe?

A comment titled: Re: Federal Snapper Season in response to a report titled: Federal Snapper Season

I do understand your frustrations but the fact of the matter is charter boat captains make up a very small percentage of the snapper caught. So even if we didn't get to fish 45 days the recreation fisherman would not get but 2 or 3 at the most more days to fish. If the state wouldn't have opened there season we could all fish the federal waters more days. So don't be pissed at the charter guys for being able to take people out that go once a year and would also like to keep 2 snapper. I've never heard 1 recreational fisherman that owns a boat complain that the charter guys can't fish snapper in state waters. That's because it didn't affect them. So instead of being upset about us being able to allow more people to enjoy our great fishery. Show up and the council meetings be more involve with what's happening. Anyone can go and voice there opinion . I'll be there if I'm not on the water. I wasn't trying to call anyone out. It just suck knowing everyone is doing everything they can to take away my way of life and all I want to do is let people enjoy the outdoors.

A comment titled: Re: Federal Snapper Season in response to a report titled: Federal Snapper Season

Wolf man jack. The only thing that you were right about is that the snapper do belong to the citizens of the United States and so what you're telling me is that if you own your Own boat you should be able to catch red snapper. but if you don't own your own boat then you shouldn't be allowed to ever catch a red snapper unless you book a charter the first 15 days of June. You're just flat out a selfish person. I'm not allowed to catch any I'm trying to let the rest of the citizens of United States be able to catch them once a year. Once again I don't get to catch them the citizens of the United States that the snapper belong to as you said get to catch them when they're on the trip with us. So I'd say it's unfair for me and the American people who only gets to catch them maybe one day when you get to catch them 15. Not to mention you can catch them in state waters over 100 days a year and the average person that cannot afford a boat does not get to catch them so you do not have to pay anyone anything ever to catch red snapper you're also allowed a four person limit after the federal season. It's not just about you since you own a boat it's about the American citizens which they will not be able to catch red snapper unless a Charterboat takes them. The fact that it makes you sick that other people get to enjoy snapper fishing who don't own a boat is pretty sad.

A comment titled: Re: Federal Snapper Season in response to a report titled: Federal Snapper Season

Actually You only have to have a federal reef permit to fish federal waters not state waters charterboat captain's are not allowed to fish state waters all year long unless they are not on a charter. Then even if you do get stoped by federal game warden you can still get a ticket so legally a charterboat captain cannot fish the state waters if he has a federal permit on his vessel but I've been told if you're not on a charter they will not ticket you. You do have to purchase the federal permit from someone else Who already has it they will not issue any new ones. Mike being a field reporter I would think you would be a little more educated about how you speak I've been a charterboat captain for 20 years now I've not been given anything over the last 20 years everything that I could catch is been taken from me nothing has been given to me. This is the first time in several years that I can fish for snapper more than 10 days a year you as a recreational fishermen can fish for them over 180 days so who's been given what. I'm not saying that the regulations are right but people like you and the CCA who are against charterboat guys having 45 days so that they can make a living is just wrong. So next time you want to say that something was given to me come try doing what I do for 20 years and then when you show back up at the dock after you let go snapper all day and watch recreational fishermen clean them in front of your face and customers ask why we can't keep them think about what you say before you speak. In fact The first gentleman is right I do this for a living a way of life and I'm not allowed to keep one snapper the entire year so tell me what I was given once again.If you either own your own boat or have friends that bring you is it okay for you to catch red snapper 15 days federal waters and Over 100 days state waters with a lot of those days being a 4 fish limit. But it's not okay for the average person who charters a boat maybe once a year not to be able to keep 2 red snapper each and I'm not allowed any even though it's my way of life. Don't be so selfish. You are GIVEN a state water season I was not. I took serious offense to what you said and it makes me wonder why I spend money to advertise on this site when the people who run it could care less about charter boat captains that helped build it.
