About Fishing in Venice

Venice Fishing Charters

If you want to go fishing in Venice, Louisiana, it’s easy. You just follow this old, fairly accurate set of directions. First you drive to the end of the world. Then you get on a boat, and you just keep going from there. Venice, Louisiana, is literally at the end of the road. Venice is located about 60 miles south of New Orleans in southeastern Louisiana right along the Mississippi River. State Hwy. 23 literally runs out in Venice, where it hits Tidewater Road and the pavement disappears into the Louisiana Marsh. The combined population for Venice and neighboring communities Orchard) and Boothville is about 3,000 people and everyone there is tied to the fishing industry in some form or fashion. The area is a prime fishing location because anglers can access literally thousands of acres of fishable marsh, or jump aboard a larger boat and head right out into the massive Gulf of Mexico. Venice is touted as the jumping-off point for some of the finest fishing adventures you could imagine. The many charter boat and guide services available in and around Venice offer a plethora of inshore and offshore trips that will take you to the most productive waters. From gorgeous redfish to record-setting tarpon, sailfish and tuna, you're sure to find the fishing experience of your life in Venice.

Venice Inshore Fishing

You wouldn’t know it looking at a map, but the Venice area offers some excellent inshore opportunities for anglers to catch an easy limit of largemouth bass in the marshes and canals not far from the landing. The inshore opportunities mostly center around trophy bull redfish, though. This area isn’t known as the “Redfish Capital of the World” for nothing. There are also numerous schools of tasty speckled trout. In fact, a limit of all three on one trip isn’t out of the question. Reds run from 5-15 pounds as well as up to 20-30 pounds or bigger, which puts them in the bull category. The cuts and points, grass lined bayous and miles and miles of marsh provide excellent habitat for baitfish. Find the baitfish and you’ll find the gamefish. The rich supply of shrimp and crabs pile up huge numbers of fish. And you can also catch flounder, tripletail and black drum in these inland marshes and lakes. You can take advantage of this type of fishing all year long, but check with guides to make sure which months are best for the species you want, or to find out where you’ll need to go out of Venice to find them.

Venice Offshore Fishing

If you are after Tuna, there’s no better place to head out of port than in Venice. The large number of offshore oil rigs have created a man-made fishing mecca for tuna. It isn’t unusual for a fisherman to catch a 200 pound tuna here, and lots of smaller ones. You will find both Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna in these waters. Tuna often swim in schools and stay at various depths, according to where the baitfish is. There are several great techniques for catching them, including chumming or chunking, a technique that draws fish to you by throwing out chopped up baitfish to attract the fish and make them bite. Trolling with artificial lures is often popular, and using live bait is probably the most popular method of catching. The type of bait used depends on the season. In the summer, it’s often easy to see schools of tuna darting around not far under the surface. Average tuna run 50-60 pounds then. In the fall and winter, the bigger fish come in and it’s not unusual to see a 200 pounder. That’s why Venice is known by many guests as “Tuna Town”. If it isn’t tuna you are after, then just grab a copy of the Venice OffShore Fishing menu and start marking your choices. There’s snapper, black drum, sheepshead, speckled trout, amberjack, cobia, king mackerel, wahoo, mahi-mahi, grouper, shark, flounder and more.
