trip description for Intense Offshore Action in Boothville-Venice

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

trip description for Overnight Offshore Special Trip 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! This is an overnight trip, so depending on when you choose to get off the dock, you'll be fishing most of one day and part of the next. This is an ideal opportunity to catch fish, as you'll get to go further and try you hand during a wider variety of times and conditions. 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 Overnight Trip - 35' Contender in Boothville-Venice

On this epic trip, you'll run out up to 180 miles offshore with Captain Donnie to chase down some of the hardest-fighting and finest-tasting fish the ocean has to offer. These overnight trips are great for targeting big-time Yellowfin Tuna out on the Midnight Knob, located roughly ~170 miles offshore. In addition, you'll be able to go after Swordfish, Sailfish, Marlin, and more! If you're an offshore angler looking to knock some species off your bucket list, there's no better way to do it. In order to fish as efficiently as possible, you'll switch up techniques in order to capitalize on the fishes' feeding patterns. For example, because Tuna spend most of their time feeding on squid down at great depths, and only rise to the surface in the early hours of the morning, you'll only troll for Tuna at that time, then switch back to drifting for Swordfish, chasing Sailfish, or targeting other species. Captain Donnie leaves it all out there when you choose to fish with him. He will work tirelessly to make sure you get the best opportunities at the fish you're trying to catch. His 35' Contender is equipped with all the best rods and reels (as well as electric reels for deep dropping), plus all the tackle you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water! The fish are biting—get out there and start fishing! Read More

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! Like most types of fishing though, weather patterns and fish habits can be unpredictable, not to mention Tuna notoriously spend most of their time at unreachable depths. For the best chances at giant Yellowfin Tuna look to book your trip in the Fall or Winter months and definitely book an overnight trip. 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! Captain David is committed to making sure his customers have a great experience out on the water. He will work his tail off to get you onto the fish! His brand new 40' Sea Hunter is the perfect fishing vessel for these waters equipped with all the latest gear, gadgets, quality fishing tackle, and a comfortable head! Read More

Come join Captain John for the fly fishing adventure of a lifetime! On this full-day trip, Captain John will be your host as you fish and explore the Mississippi River delta, south of New Orleans. The focus is Redfish, specifically giant "bull" Redfish. Nothing compares to the thrill of watching 30 pound Red crawling, backing, and tailing on super clear, skinny water flats of the Mississippi River delta! You'll also have the opportunity to target oversized Black Drum and Sheepshead. Most days, these fish will readily eat just about any fly cast in front of them. That’s not to say these fish are easy, though. It takes quick accurate casts to get the fly in front of the fish. Whether this is your first trip or you’re a seasoned veteran to these waters, Captain John will take you hotspots and show you tips you won't soon forget! You'll be fishing aboard a 24' Yellowfin bay boat that can hold up to 2 guests. Powered by a 300 HP Mercury Verado engine, this vessel will bounce you around the Louisiana flats with ease! She comes complete with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well and snorkeling equipment. Captain John will provide all rods, reels, tackle and flies. All you need to bring is a Louisiana fishing license. We also recommend bringing polarized glasses (possibly the most important piece of equipment besides the flyrod), sunscreen, a camera and appropriate clothing for the conditions. Goretex jackets and bibs are appropriate for all seasons. If you want to bring your own rod, Captain John recommends 8, 9, & 10wt fly rods with weight forward floating line and your favorite flies. Book your trip today and get ready to catch some massive Redfish! Read More

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.

These waters are so bountiful with rod bending redfish and tail walking speckled trout that it is not uncommon to catch 50+ fish each day. 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 Jay 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 Jay get you hooked into the fish! Read More

What is mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice all about?

In Boothville-Venice, mahi mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, are prized game fish sought after by anglers for their vibrant colors, acrobatic displays, and delicious flesh. These pelagic predators inhabit the warm offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico, often congregating around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures such as oil rigs and buoys. Mahi mahi are known for their striking green and gold hues, making them easily recognizable and a coveted target for anglers seeking exhilarating battles and rewarding catches.

Anglers targeting mahi mahi in Boothville-Venice often employ trolling techniques with a spread of rigged baits or lures, covering large areas of water while searching for schools of feeding fish. Common trolling baits include brightly colored skirted lures, squid imitations, and rigged ballyhoo, presented at varying depths to entice strikes from mahi mahi patrolling the surface and depths. Additionally, anglers may use live bait such as small fish or squid, deployed on weighted lines or under floats, to target mahi mahi actively feeding near the surface or around floating debris.

Mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice offers anglers the chance to experience thrilling battles and memorable catches, as these powerful predators are known for their aggressive strikes and aerial acrobatics. Once hooked, mahi mahi are known to put up spirited fights, making blistering runs and dazzling leaps out of the water in an effort to shake the hook. Anglers targeting mahi mahi can expect to encounter fish of various sizes, ranging from school-sized individuals to trophy-sized specimens exceeding 50 pounds or more. Overall, mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice provides anglers with an exciting and rewarding offshore experience in the Gulf of Mexico.

What are the most popular months to fish for mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice?

In Boothville-Venice, mahi mahi fishing seasons are influenced by various factors including water temperature, bait availability, and migratory patterns of these pelagic predators. Generally, mahi mahi can be targeted year-round in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico, providing anglers with ample opportunities to pursue these prized game fish. However, certain times of the year may offer more favorable conditions or higher catch rates for anglers specifically targeting mahi mahi.

Spring and summer are typically considered prime seasons for mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice. During these warmer months, as water temperatures rise and baitfish become more abundant, mahi mahi become more active and migrate closer to the surface in search of food. Anglers targeting mahi mahi during these peak seasons often encounter schools of fish congregating around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures such as oil rigs and buoys, providing exciting opportunities for trolling and casting.

While spring and summer are considered peak seasons for mahi mahi fishing in Boothville-Venice, these fish can still be targeted with varying success throughout the year. During the cooler months of fall and winter, mahi mahi may migrate offshore or to deeper waters, requiring anglers to adjust their fishing techniques accordingly. Additionally, factors such as weather patterns, water currents, and the presence of baitfish can influence mahi mahi behavior and catch rates throughout the year. Overall, whether fishing during peak seasons or exploring opportunities year-round, anglers in Boothville-Venice can enjoy the thrill and excitement of targeting mahi mahi in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

What techniques are popular for catching mahi mahi in Boothville-Venice?

In Boothville-Venice, anglers employ a variety of effective techniques to target mahi mahi, leveraging their knowledge of the species' behavior and habitats in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. One popular technique is trolling, where anglers cruise along at a moderate speed while dragging a spread of rigged baits or lures behind their boat. Common trolling baits for mahi mahi include brightly colored skirted lures, squid imitations, and rigged ballyhoo, presented at varying depths to entice strikes from fish cruising near the surface or below.

Another productive technique for targeting mahi mahi in Boothville-Venice is casting and retrieving with light tackle. Anglers may spot schools of mahi mahi feeding near floating debris, weed lines, or offshore structures and cast small jigs, soft plastic lures, or live baitfish into the vicinity. Retrieving the lure with erratic movements mimicking injured baitfish can trigger aggressive strikes from mahi mahi, providing anglers with thrilling battles and rewarding catches. This technique allows anglers to cover a smaller area and target specific fish actively feeding near the surface.

Chumming is also a commonly used technique by anglers targeting mahi mahi in Boothville-Venice, particularly when fishing around floating debris or offshore structures. Anglers deploy a mixture of chopped baitfish, fish oil, and other attractants into the water to create a chum slick, attracting mahi mahi to the area and stimulating their feeding behavior. Once mahi mahi are drawn in close to the boat, anglers can present baits or lures directly into the chum slick, enticing strikes from hungry fish. Chumming can be an effective way to attract and catch mahi mahi in offshore waters, providing anglers with exciting opportunities for action-packed fishing experiences.

What other species are popular in Boothville-Venice?

Beyond mahi mahi, Boothville-Venice offers anglers a diverse array of species to target, ensuring an exciting and varied fishing experience in the Gulf of Mexico. One notable species is the yellowfin tuna, prized for its speed, strength, and delicious flesh. Yellowfin tuna inhabit the offshore waters around underwater structures such as oil rigs, seamounts, and weed lines, where they feed on baitfish and squid. Anglers targeting yellowfin tuna in Boothville-Venice often employ trolling techniques with a spread of rigged baits or lures, presenting their offerings at varying depths to entice strikes from these powerful and fast-swimming predators.

Another sought-after species in Boothville-Venice is the wahoo, known for its lightning-fast strikes and high-speed runs. Wahoo can be found patrolling the offshore waters around underwater structures such as oil rigs, wrecks, and seamounts, where they prey on smaller fish and squid. Anglers targeting wahoo often use high-speed trolling techniques with large diving plugs or skirted lures, presenting their baits at varying depths to entice strikes from these powerful predators. Wahoo fishing in Boothville-Venice offers anglers adrenaline-pumping action and the chance to reel in trophy-sized specimens.

In addition to yellowfin tuna and wahoo, Boothville-Venice provides opportunities to target a variety of other species, including mahi-mahi, billfish, amberjack, snapper, grouper, and tilefish, among others. Mahi-mahi, with their vibrant colors and acrobatic leaps, can be found around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures, providing anglers with exciting battles and delicious table fare. Billfish species such as blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish inhabit the offshore waters, offering anglers thrilling battles and memorable fishing experiences. Whether targeting yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi, billfish, or any of the other diverse species in Boothville-Venice, anglers are sure to find plenty of excitement and adventure on the water.

    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.
