Heading out of Venice, Louisiana, home to some of the best offshore fishing in the South, this charter is helmed by local captain John Duplass. A seasoned offshore angler, Capt. John loves to show novices and seasoned pro’s what fishing in Louisiana is all about.

You’ll spend the day aboard his 2019 41’ Onslow center console, perfect for 6 anglers who want to fish at the same time. She’s powered by a whopping 4 400 HP Mercury engines that’ll see you zipping to all the best spots in no time.
