Venice Inshore Action
Arrive at the marina, get settled into your accommodations – either the houseboat you’ve rented or your hotel room. Head on over to Crawgators or Cypress Grill for a cold one and some fresh Louisiana seafood, then it’s time to get some shut eye. Your alarm clock signals the start of day. Grab a coffee, slap on some sunblock and get picked up by the boat at your house boat! Just jump on and head out. Staying at the hotel? Just walk over to the dock in the morning and off we go. The run to the fishing grounds starts with a 20 mile run down river. Listen to the quad suzuki purr in harmony as the smooth 42’ Razorhead hits cruising speed. Enjoy the ride from a bean bag chair. Stop to get bait. Get to the fishing grounds. Now it’s time to fish. Lines in, anxiously anticipating the first strike…then it happens, the clicker sounds….vrr, vrrr, vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Engage the reel and hang on as the circle fish finds its home in the corner of a yellowfin tuna’s mouth. Rod loads, drag peels off on the first massive run. You pump and wind, pump and wind to recover line. Then the tuna takes off for a second run. Pump and wind, pump and wind and finally you hear the mate shout ‘we’ve got color’. You look down and see the profile of a beautiful tuna, sicles and all, slowly coming up in a wide spiral. Finally the fish breaks the surface and the mate delivers a perfect gaff shot – fish caught. You’re overcome with happiness, satisfaction, relief, excitement all at once. The picture captures the moment for you to reflect on for years to come. Then, you do it again. Crack a cold one, have a sandwich and watch your buddy experience what you just went through yourself. After the tuna action, you decide to mix things up. It’s bonus fish time; switch your target and set your sights on swordfish, grouper, snapper, mahi, or wahoo. At the end of the day of catching, you’re back on plane and heading to the marina in the bean bag. Tired but accomplished. The crew cleans your catch so you can pack your coolers full of gorgeous tuna for the trip home. Don’t forget to save a piece for dinner! After a shower and change of clothes, bring a piece over to the restaurant and they’ll prepare it for you. It doesn’t get much fresher than that. Enjoy a meal, a beverage, but not too many, because you booked a second day. Tomorrow, you experience Venice tuna fishing the way it’s meant to be all over again! You haven’t been to Tuna Town unless you’ve fished with Josh. Lock it in! You won't regret it! Read More

Morning Shallow Water Assault
Head out with Captain Bryan for an incredible inshore experience in Venice Louisiana!

Once arriving at the first “honey hole”, you will troll or drift along while casting to grass-covered areas or over one of the many oyster reefs in the marshes. These waters are so bountiful with rod bending redfish and tail walking speckled trout. The Louisiana fishing trip action is unbelievable. Venice, Louisiana is the undisputed “Redfish Capital of the World”. You will never go redfish fishing anywhere else and be able to catch more 20-30+ pound redfish, and that is a fact. Captain Bryan will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water! So all you need to bring is your Louisiana fishing license, your favorite snacks and drinks, and let Captain Bryan get you hooked into the fish! Read More

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Darrel was a wonderful captain he made the entire 2 days awesome
Johnny F. with Daryl C. of Grand Isle, Louisiana
Mr. Daryl is the first charter I've ever taken, and I would not hesitate to book him again. From the first minute you meet him, he's cutting up with jokes and makes you feel like you've known him for a long time. He quickly put us into a steady supply of HUGE trout. Not a single one had to be thrown back. Can't wait to do this again.
