About Your Trip
Head out of Venice, Louisiana to chase the big offshore fish with Captain John!
You will leave early in the morning aboard his 41' Onslow and will travel approximately 12 to 60 miles offshore out of Venice, Louisiana. Bluewater specialist Capt. John will employ several techniques like trolling live baits, skirted baits, and naked ballyhoo to ensure that you have the best trip possible.

Fuel is not included in the trip price and can cost anywhere from 1000-1500$ But otherwise, Captain John's boat comes fully loaded with all the rods, reels, bait, tackle, coolers, lounging space, etc. that you could possibly need for an outstanding day out on the water. That way all you have to bring is your Louisiana fishing license, your sunscreen, a tip for the Captain, and Captain John will take care of the rest to make sure your hooking into the big ones!

First time in the gulf at the rigs, good learning experience, a day to remember for me and my crew thanks guys
Awesome day of fishing. Was catching fish while other boats beside us were not. Great caption and crew
Captain John and Blake were awesome! They got us exactly what we hoped to catch! Highly recommend them for your offshore fishing trip!
Had a great trip and John and Blake made the trip a great time for our family. Snapper bite was on!
Clearly the pic above is a Bull Red, but the trout I prepared from some of our catch is outstanding. I went on the trip for redfish, but am very pleased with the trout catch. Our initial reservation was canceled by that captain a week before we traveled from all

Captain Jimmy did an excellent job of putting us on fish, knowing when a spot went cold/when to move on, explaining the what and why of what we did, and took excellent care of all 4 of us - from my adult kids (daughter pictured) to my 86 y.o father. It wasn’t the first in-shore trip for any of us and this was among the best experiences we’ve had. He’s personable and polite, and remembered all our names after our first meeting. He did his best to make sure we got the day we were after, and that’s super important to me. He wasn’t watching the clock for a reason to end the day like I’ve seen in reviews of other charters. I highly recommend Jimmy.
Had a great time out on the water with John and Gabe. They both are the right guys if you want to have a blast. Got us on some fightin tuna and there was not a dull moment. 10/10
Full day of offshore with Captain John and Katie these guys are awesome very knowledgeable all the equipment was top notch and they were Very easy-going I am planning on doing another charter with them
Fishing was pretty slow but Captain Jimmy worked hard for us and managed to get us a decent box. We had a great time and will definitely go with Captain Jimmy again.
We had a great trip with Capt John. He and deckhand Gabe worked hard to get us on fish and fill the icebox. They had a great attitude and were really easy going, all the while staying serious about fish. That’s a hard combo to find in a Capt sometimes.
