About Your Guide

If you're looking for an inshore Venice fishing charter done right, look no further than Captain Chad. Born and raised into a local Venice fishing family, Captain Chad's been fishing his home waters as long as he can remember. He keeps his finger on the fishery's pulse, and always has a hunch on where to chase down Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and more.

Captain Chad fishes live shrimp and croaker under popping corks for trophy Speckled Trout and Bull Redfish, and throws Carolina rigs for Red Snapper under nearshore rigs.

Captain Chad hosts trips aboard his 24ft Bay Boat with 250HP Suzuki engine, complete with a head (restroom) aboard for the group's comfort, a fish finder, and GPS. Captain Chad also provides a cooler for your drinks and catch.

All safety equipment is registered and certified by the United States Coast Guard, including life jackets and a First-Aid Kit.

Captain Chad and Cajun Unlimited provides everything you need for a day of fishing: including gear and tackle. You will need to bring a Louisiana state fishing license; available online or at local stores. Dead bait is included in cost of trip; live bait is available at additional cost.

Be sure to wear weather appropriate clothes (rain jacket, light jacket), hat and sunscreen, and polarized sunglasses as we sight fish for Bull Redfish. A ziplock bag to store your personal items is also recommended.

All the Captains of Cajun Unlimited have grown up fishing and hunting the Bayous of the Mississippi River Delta.

We have booked with Chad for many years and have had successful fishing trips with him. He makes every trip worth it and we always have lots of fun and catch lots of fish. Can't wait to go again and spend time with him. It is worth it for you to book with Chad...

Captain Chad is incredibly polite and very great company to be around, but more importantly, he knows how to put you on a lot of fish! All of the equipment was high quality and very clean. By far the best charter I’ve ever been on. I’m definitely gonna have to go back out with them!
