Fishing in Venice
Supported by an elaborate network of bluewater oil rigs, notorious seamounts and the profuse ecosystem of the Mississippi River, the game fish of Venice have been granted every possible opportunity to thrive. For the inshore aficionado, the area’s vast estuary system comes replete with an annual supply of shrimp, menhaden, crabs and a variety of other baitfish, tenaciously alluring many of Lousiana’s favorite shallow water quarry. The passes, channels and ponds of the Mississippi Delta are infested with Redfish and Speckled Seatrout all year long, with strong seasonal showings of the likes of Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder, Tripletail and more. On the other hand, a massive grid of over 4000 oil rigs lurking offshore provide an ideal backdrop for a wide range of bottom huggers, including Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia and Triggerfish. And for the ultimate in big game fishing, the famous Midnight Lump awaits in the Gulf waterways. Renowned for its sportfishing potential, the Lump is an underwater salt mountain where endless schools of baitfish and pelagics alike reside, some of the usual suspects including the Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Amberjack, Tuna, Marlin and more!

What People Are Saying About Venice
"2- full day trips with Captain Scott Pelas."
Call Captain Scott Pelas to book a professional fishing trip. Bring plenty of drinks and snacks. Have a good time.
"Day trip March 1 with Captain Gray Long"
Bring plenty of coolers,there are not a lot of amenities so bring everything you can think of including sunscreen drinks snacks, not a friendly place for women and children unless they are fishing only, the coolers are for the fish,I had to buy 3 coolers for my fish I brought 2 with me
"Full day and then some"
Book with capt. Jeff Downs. 2 days are better than one. Have tbe Marina cook some of your catch when you get back. Buy your lunch for the next day 30+ miles before you get to Venice. Do not expect luxurious accomodations. This place is about your day on the water, awsome guides and fishing, and memories to last a lifetime.
