Venture One - 2005 24ft Kenner - Inshore/Near Shore and State Wat6er Snapper Trips, tour trips, dolphin trips, 2hr Cruise 300.00

Our boats carry top of the line equipment and tackle and our captains have the know how to put your group on the fish.

I have been fishing in this area since the 1960’s with my dad.  He was, in my opinion, one of the best, if not the BEST inshore fisherman around. I was lucky when I was growing up that he took me fishing with him. I was fortunate that the knowledge he taught me instilled a love of fishing in my mind so that I could carry this knowledge the rest of my life. In my teens, I learned how to offshore fish from the best offshore fishermen. I was blessed to be able to combine all of this knowledge into a lifelong career that I love.

The only reason this wasn’t a five star rating is the weather. Captain Scooter did a great job of keeping us from getting wet. Pop up showers were South of us and growing in size throughout the morning. We went to several places looking for Speckled trout and caught some here and there. I think we lost more big fish than we caught, but we had a great time fishing. I definitely recommend Island Venture Charter.
