Head out of Venice, Louisiana to chase the big offshore fish with Captain John!...Read More
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. You can expect to catch some Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, and maybe even some Tuna!
Fuel is not included in the trip price and can cost anywhere from 800-1200$ 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!
If you're looking for a knowledgable local guide, Captain John is the one for you! He was born and raised in Venice and grew up fishing the bayous and coastal waters. Living his dream running a fishing charter company, he loves getting to meet new people and making their day with an exciting catch!...Read More
Whether you want to target some exciting inshore species in his 24' Gravois center console or chase after big game offshore fish aboard a hefty 41' Onslow Bay center console, Captain John and his crew have you covered.

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 ...Read More over the country for this trip (Indiana, Ohio, Texas, and Louisiana) so we were glad not only to replace that trip, but fortunate to have Pelican as the replacement. 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 (Shaw?) and Pelican.

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. ...Read More Equipment was also top notch. Keep up the great work guys.
