Venice is a year round fishery that allows the angler the opportunity to catch trophy speckled trout, sight cast for redfish in the marsh ponds, the opportunity to catch bull reds on light tackle, flounder, and tarpon. Our diverse fish species are what bring fishermen from all over the world right to our backdoor.
Our eight captains have over 100 years combined experience fishing the Mississippi River Delta waters; they know the fish, the waters, the seasons, and they are some of the friendliest, most personable guys you'll ever meet.
As one long-time customer wrote,
"As the sun starts to peek over the marsh you'll ride to the water with an experienced guide that doesn't need waypoints and routes to navigate the vast expanse of fishable water. Once the boat is launched you'll make a final idle out of the harbor and it's a sight that even the most modern cameras can't fully capture. The next eight hours are what the trip is really all about.
The fishing is hard to summarize. Let's just say you'll experience the most fertile expanse of inshore water on the globe. And it'll be done with a guide that doesn't act like he knows it all, but probably does. The style and locations you'll fish will vary based on the time of year, river level, weather, tides, and many other factors....which is why you choose Venice Fishing Lodge in the first place.
As the fishing day winds to a close, the boat will be loaded, fish cleaned (if preferred), and it's finally time to relax and reflect on the day. That's easy done as you'll return to a kitchen full of appetizers and cool drink, and meal you won't soon forget. After a shower and more stories, it'll be time to repeat the process. A process that often times isn't repeated as much as you'd like..."
Our inshore fishing trips are included in our all-inclusive packages.
