Head out with Captain Jay for an incredible inshore experience in Venice Louisiana!...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.
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 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!
Captain Jay has been working as a guide for over 10 years, building his knowledge of the local hotspots and fish behavior in Louisiana. His competitive fishing resume includes several Texas and Louisiana saltwater tournaments and even several bowfishing tournaments. He'll be sure to get you on some fish in no time!...Read More
Captain Jay started out using his fishing expertise to guide anglers only on the weekends, but he loved it so much he turned it into a full time job. He'll help you go after whatever species you want to catch, and you'll get great results chasing after Redfish, his favorite species!

First thing is Jay is one hell of a great person to be with. It was like fishing with my brother, lots of back & forth, good natured kidding, really enjoyed being with him & hope I didn’t talk his ears off. He worked very hard to get my limit ...Read More of speckled trout. Would have been easier but we had to go thru a TON of too small throw backs & gafftopsail catfish (dangerous toxic slime on their fins). I finally gave up & let him take us in out of the ridiculous heat. We did luck out & catch this 22 lb. redfish. We doubled up but mine finally cut thru the line with his tiny sharp bottom teeth but Jay immediately handed me his rod to bring that one in for quick pics then revival in the water & away it went. Again there are no guarantees in fishing but he will ALWAYS work his butt off for you! If I get back down there I guarantee I will book with him again.

I booked this trip with Captain Jay because my ten year old daughter wanted to go fishing for her birthday. She had never been fishing in the Gulf before. I also took my dad who is 85 and he had always wanted to go to but had never been. ...Read More Captain Jay was awesome! He knows the fish, the waters, his equipment and how to handle his boat. Best of all he is an amazing guy. He helped all of us catch fish. He was very patient with us. The very first time I casted I caught a big red fish! My daughter caught a red fish that was 31inches long! Seeing the smiles on my daughter’s and dad’s faces made fishing with Captain Jay the best fishing trip in my life.

Under very challenging conditions Captain Jay never gave up on finding the fish for my 14 and 11 year old sons and me and provided a very fun day in the process. Overall it was a slow day of catching fish due to the high water and windy conditions, but ...Read More we caught enough along the way to keep us motivated. We finally hit a jackpot at the very end of the day with very little time left on the trip. Captain Jay kept us out longer to make sure we got all the fishing we could out of that spot. He did everything possible to put us on fish, even a bumpy and wet ride to a spot further out - undoubtedly my 11 year old’s favorite part of the day (other than catching the fish of course). Along the way, Captain Jay had a great attitude, a fun personality, and is great with kids. I would highly recommend Captain Jay and book with him again myself.
