trip description for Louisiana Offshore Adventure in Boothville-Venice

If you've ever wanted to go after the biggest, baddest gamefish that the Gulf of Mexico has to offer, then this trip is your ticket. There is no better opportunity to take a crack at all of the best-known offshore species, including Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. These lightning-fast pelagic predators are world-famous for a reason—they fight harder and fight longer than almost all other species, and should be on any self-respecting saltwater angler's lifetime bucket list. Captains John and Martha are true offshore specialists, and they know better than anyone how to put you on trophy fish and help you land them. If you don't believe us, just take a look at their pictures, and see for yourself the giants they're catching! On this trip, you'll primarily be trolling a variety of baits and lures, looking to attract fast-moving fish such as Wahoo, Tuna, and Marlin. There are also opportunities for bottomfishing as well, if you're interested in catching delicious eating fish such as Tilefish and Red Snapper, or photo-worthy prizewinners such as Red Grouper and Amberjack. You'll be chasing these fish aboard a 40' Invincible catamaran—an ideal vessel for comfort, performance, and speed! In the words of the boat manufacturer, "Sea-keeping ability is our objective with the 40’. We created a boat that would tear through seas from any direction, while still being able to maneuver turns at high speeds. It was designed to go far in less than optimal running conditions." She's powered by four 300 HP engines, so you'll be on the fish in a hurry! Your Captain will come prepared with everything you need for a great day, including top-of-the-line rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Most importantly, John and Martha are genuine expert in their home waters and will do everything they can to get you hooked up on a personal best! Bring along proper clothing, sunscreen, and a pair of polarized sunglasses to maximize your time on the water. Read More

trip description for Venice Tripletail Trip in Boothville-Venice

Join us down by the waters in Venice, Louisiana where you can fish at one of the best Tripletail fisheries you can find! If you're looking for some sight casting and a fish that gives you a wild fight, look no further than a Tripletail adventure. Tripletail are pretty crazy looking fish with their prehistoric, dinosaur-like features: razor-sharp gill plates, sharp fins, and you guessed it, 3 tails. There's some debate on their beauty. Some admire them while others are might double-take at the first sight of them. But one thing is undeniable: their wonderful taste. Captain Jacob usually finds these sneaky little guys floating motionless by nearshore structure until a potential prey wanders by and then they strike on their opportunity. Expect them to feed on fish and crabs, including gulf menhaden, Atlantic bumper, glass minnows, swimming red crabs, anchovies, shrimp, and squid. Thus, Captain Jacob will rig up some live bait (occasionally artificials as well) and sight fish these bad boys. Captain Jacob will help you through every step of this process to guarantee that your experience is memorable and successful! With your fully licensed and insured guide, our number one goal is to keep you safe! Be ready to bring drinks, food, sunglasses, sunscreen and a great attitude for a day that you'll remember years down the line. Other than that, Captain Jacob will take care of the rest. Read More

trip description for Bayous and Backwaters - 24’ Triton in Boothville-Venice

Head out with Captain Bryan for an incredible inshore experience in Venice Louisiana! On a typical day, you will leave the dock at “safe light” and will find yourself running through a maze of bayous, bays, and marshes on your way to one of the many Louisiana fishing locations in the area. 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

trip description for Nearshore Fly Fishing Adventure in Boothville-Venice

The combination of a seemingly unlimited supply of hungry fish and miles and miles of shallow water, make coastal SE Louisiana one of the best kept secrets in the fly fishing world. If you haven’t heard about Louisiana Fly Fishing, it’s probably because a lot of people don’t want you to know about it so that they can have it all to themselves. As with any fly fishing trip, we don’t normally catch as many fish as we would on conventional tackle; however, multiple hook-ups are almost a certainty on every Louisiana guided fishing trip. On a good day you can expect to catch 5-10 fish per angler, on an exceptional day the numbers can reach 20+ fish per angler or more. There are also plenty of black drum and sheepshead, both of which will readily take a fly. Trust me, this truly is a place that fly fishermen fall in love with. Read More

Whether sight casting along the marshy shorelines or exploring the winding bayous, Venice provides an ideal habitat for these prized gamefish. Anglers can test their skills against both bull reds and slot reds, creating an exciting and varied inshore fishing experience.

These voracious predators inhabit the estuaries and shallows, offering anglers the chance to reel in a bounty of these tasty and beautiful fish. As the seasons shift, the patterns for targeting speckled trout may change, providing a dynamic challenge for anglers throughout the year. The thrill of feeling a trout strike and the anticipation of a successful catch make speckled trout fishing a favorite pastime for those exploring the waters around Venice.

Beyond redfish and speckled trout, Venice's diverse ecosystem presents opportunities to target other species such as flounder, sheepshead, and black drum. Each brings its own unique characteristics and challenges, adding variety to the inshore fishing experience. Whether casting near the structures of the Mississippi River Delta or navigating the intricate bayous, anglers in Venice, Louisiana, can expect a rewarding mix of catches that contribute to the area's well-deserved reputation as a premier fishing destination.

What species are most popular to catch in Venice?

Venice, Louisiana, stands out as a mecca for anglers due to its incredibly diverse array of fish species inhabiting its waters. One of the most coveted catches is the redfish, a robust and hard-fighting species that populates the intricate network of marshes and estuaries. Whether you're pursuing bull reds or slot reds, the challenge of hooking into these formidable fish against the backdrop of the Mississippi River Delta's unique ecosystem makes for an unforgettable angling experience.

Speckled trout, with their distinctive markings and reputation for putting up a spirited fight, are another prized species found in abundance around Venice.

Navigating the bayous and flats in pursuit of speckled trout provides a dynamic and engaging fishing experience, with each catch adding to the thrill of the adventure.

Whether casting near the submerged structures of the Mississippi River Delta or exploring the winding bayous, Venice offers a rich tapestry of fishing opportunities, ensuring that anglers of all preferences and skill levels can find their ideal catch in this angler's paradise.

What are the fishing seasons in Venice?

Fishing seasons in Venice, Louisiana, are characterized by a dynamic rhythm dictated by the changing patterns of the Mississippi River Delta's ecosystem. Spring signals the start of heightened activity as the waters warm, drawing in a diverse range of species. This season is particularly fruitful for targeting redfish and speckled trout as they become more active in the estuaries and marshes. Anglers revel in the abundance of life as they navigate the winding bayous, experiencing the thrill of the chase against the backdrop of emerging greenery.

As summer takes hold, Venice continues to offer prime fishing conditions. The warmer temperatures bring an increase in baitfish, attracting larger predatory species to the shallows.

What techniques are popular for fishing in Venice?

In Venice, Louisiana, mastering a variety of fishing techniques is crucial for success in the diverse and dynamic waters of the Mississippi River Delta. Anglers often employ sight fishing when targeting redfish, a technique that involves visually spotting the fish in the shallows and making precise casts. The intricate network of marshes and estuaries provides ample opportunities for this visually engaging approach, requiring keen observation and quick reflexes to capitalize on the moment when a redfish is in range.

Topwater fishing is a popular and thrilling technique used by anglers in Venice, especially when pursuing speckled trout. The explosive strikes and surface action make topwater lures enticing for these aggressive predators. As the lure dances across the water's surface, anglers experience heart-pounding moments as speckled trout breach to attack, creating an exhilarating and memorable fishing experience. This technique is particularly effective during the warmer months when trout are more active near the surface.

In addition to these techniques, Venice, Louisiana, offers opportunities for anglers to hone their skills in bottom fishing, particularly when pursuing species like flounder and sheepshead. Dropping baited rigs near submerged structures, oyster beds, or channel edges can yield success for those seeking a different angling challenge.

    Went out with Captain Davide on June 5,2023. His in depth knowledge of the waters ( fishing he area since he was 9y.o.) really made the difference. We were on fish almost all day. He knew how to target each species and the best place to get them. He organized the day to target species that would keep us reeling fish in. Combination of American reds (15), Tuna(6), and variety of other species . Not to mention the wahoo that broke me off ( Damn near the biggest I ever saw). Ended with a day of heat exhaustion for me, 2 hours of fish cleaning for David, and buying 3 extra coolers for the haul home. Be careful...... There is alot of mean mugging at the cleaning station. Most everyone else got skunked that day. Thanks Capt. David Dr, James Hill Ft. Lauderdale Fl.

    Captain Jacob gets 5 BIG stars from my son Tyler and I. We had a fantastic trip with him yesterday. I cannot imagine there is a better fishing guide in the area . He had us on huge donkey red snappers in no time and he took us to many other locations for other species, since we had limited out on red snapper in the first 2 hours of fishing. His boat was immaculate. As a marine surveyor I look at these things as the safety of my son and myself is very important. Captain Jacob has a great sense of humor and makes sure his guests have a great time. Definitely choose him for your trio.

    William T. with Jacob M. of Boothville-Venice, Louisiana

  • ★★★★★
    Captain David was very good and interesting to talk with. Our first day out his deck hand had misunderstood our fishing days and was unable to go so David had to do the trip himself. He did his very best but unfortunately we didn't catch anything and helped him as much as possible. The second day he had two deckhands and it went so much more smoothly and they were very informative and very knowledgeable. They tried their best to put us on fish but it didn't work to our favor. We caught one swordfish. It was a very expressive trip for one fish but I understand that happens. I would definitely use captain David again and hope to try it again next year

    John R. with David M. of Boothville-Venice, Louisiana

    Best day ever with this guide. It’s was cold out and we were able to find the fish we were looking for thank to him. Can’t wait to go back!! I’ll definitely use this guide again.

    Excellent trip with Captain Donnie! An experience every sportsman needs. Tails Up/Sea Cruiser will be my only go to when fishing out of Venice. Donnie is a true professional and will make sure you get on the fish no matter what it takes. His new Contender is a battle wagon and he and his crew are second to none.
