Be advised: Fuel is included in the price of this trip! Head out deep with Captain David to chase down some of the hardest fighting and finest-tasting fish the ocean has to offer. The Tuna fishing in Venice can be good year-round!

Though Tuna can be caught anywhere from 5 to 200 miles offshore, the overnight trip is highly recommended if you really want the best shot at some big Yellowfin. Billfishing is also good offshore of Venice, LA. You can target Marlin, Sailfish, and even happen to hook into a Swordfish!

Grand Isle Fishing Overview

Grand Isle fishing charters offer a diverse range of fishing opportunities year-round. Located on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, Grand Isle is surrounded by the Mississippi River Delta, providing access to inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing. The area is known for its variety of fish species, including Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Amberjack, Cobia, and Snappers.

Extended full-day or overnight trips are recommended for those targeting Yellowfin Tuna or other pelagic species, while half-day trips offer great inshore and nearshore fishing opportunities. Grand Isle offers a variety of vessels for fishing, from inshore skiffs to large sportfishing vessels, departing from either the Gulf side or the Mississippi River Delta side.

Anglers over the age of 16 fishing aboard a licensed charter captain's vessel must purchase a Saltwater License in addition to their basic Louisiana Fishing License, as they will be fishing beyond Louisiana's "saltwater line."

Inshore Fishing in Grand Isle

With the amount of shallow water available to anglers near Grand Isle, we'll be surprised if you don't catch some quality inshore fish. If you’re lucky, the inshore grand slam (Speckled trout, Redfish, Flounder) can be accomplished in Grand Isle with just a half-day charter.

The peak of speckled trout fishing happens from spring into summer. Overlapping with trout, redfish and flounder start to heat up from summer into fall.

During the warmer months, bait fills the area which means these fish are constantly feeding.

Even in the winter you won't find much down-time because the sheepshead will be in large schools around hard structure.

With so many peak fishing seasons, it’s always the perfect time to take an inshore fishing trip in Grand Isle.

Deep Sea Fishing in Grand Isle: The Tuna Capital of the Gulf

Known most commonly for hitting the offshore rigs for snapper and tuna, Grand Isle offers top notch deep sea fishing and has plenty of offshore species for anglers to target throughout the year. You can drop bait to the depths and catch various snapper and grouper species, or go trolling for wahoo, kingfish, and tripletail.

Year round, the tuna bite is fantastic. Blackfin and yellowfin tuna know how to bring a fight and pack a ton of flavor.

If it’s the middle of the summer, you will want to head out and target red snapper before the quota is filled. The peak bite for mahi-mahi also fires up in the summer, and with unusual looks and delicious meat, this is an amazing fish to catch.

During the winter months, wahoo over 70 lbs are not uncommon during their big run that occurs during this time.

Regardless of the time of year, the offshore action in Grand Isle is almost guaranteed.
