About the Captain

From a young age I always wanted to be a charter captain, although I ended up chasing my dream of riding motorcycles. As that career was winding down I turned all my focus on fishing. Moved from Florida to Louisiana and the rest is history. I am now pursuing salt water fish with the same determination and drive to be the best.

It was my Doughters 50th birthday present and he ruined it by being crude and disrespectful e.g. We were on the rear deck he just turned his back and urinated with us standing right there.  He kept her nurveous all day by yelling and screaming at me, at one point I told him don’t yell at me any more. Later in the afternoon I took her rod to give her a rest, I said this feels like a small one he yelled from the front of the boat you don’t know nothing I guess you even know it’s name, whitch was totally uncalled for.                                  When I spoke to him on the phone before the trip, I ask how does this work. He said it’s me and two deck hands, we furnish water and gatorade, he had 4 waters and 2 gatorades for the day with no deck Hands.  The point here is I paid full price for the trip whitch he said included two deck hands, the trip cost the same for two people as six.                        When we returned to the dock my wife ask in a very low tone how did it go, I shrugged and said we cought fish. She said that when she asked about deck hands that morning he was very short stating he didn’t them with just two. The point is you pay for fun of the trip so I would never recommend louisiana tuna charter at all.
I have taken many charters and cought large fish, largest being 100lb lemon fish so we were not novice fisherman.

Captain Jeff did his best to give us the best trip possible but unfortunately our trip was besieged by motor problems from the beginning of the trip Captain Jeff was able to get a hold of another charter captain eventually despite this our trip was delayed about 3 hours unfortunately cause we missed some prime tuna catching time. The new charter captain did help us put some meat in the box just not the prime yellowfin tuna we were hoping and the whole trip was dampened by the early technical difficulties. But things happen

My name is Kosta and I had definitely with no question the most unforgettable fishing experience of my life. Capt Jeff Schneider was the most determined , professional , and experienced fishing charter out of the world famous Venice Marina I have ever been on. We successfully slammed Yellowfin Tuna in a variety of ways. Jeff was extremely focused on making action happen by using many different tactics. We also targeted and engaged in multiple Marlin strikes and successfully caught White Marlin. Red Snappers were of trophy grade and Mahi Mahi were not hard for Jeff to find. I was amazed at his experience and ability . He maximized success and wasted no time getting the job done. I would never think twice about booking anyone else out of Venice Marina. I plan to fish with him every time I am fishing out of Venice Marina. Fish with a real pro and see for yourself. I bet you anything it will be a fishing trip to remember with life long memories.
