If you’re visiting Venice, Louisiana, going fishing should be at the top of your list. Delicious inshore species and coveted pelagics make this one of the most productive fisheries in the US. Step aboard one of the many Venice, LA, fishing charters on offer and try your luck in this tiny Louisiana town!

Offshore anglers who come to Venice usually have one thing in mind – massive Tuna. It boasts a year-round population of Yellowfin Tuna, which is seasonally joined by Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and White and Blue Marlin. These fish thrive here in large part due to to the offshore oil rigs and deep canyons.

Fast-paced action is a trait of inshore fishing in Venice, too. You can battle big Bull Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Tripletail, and Black Drum. Head to the inshore rigs and more tasty table fare awaits. Gag and Scamp Grouper, as well as Red Snapper, can be caught here.

If you came to catch Tuna, extended full day or overnight trips are the ones for you. You’ll need to travel between 30–100 miles to get to productive grounds, after all! For you inshore anglers, a half day trip lets you go home with a few fish, while a full day trip can see you really stock the freezer.

Venice is a tiny community, so finding a fishing charter shouldn’t be too difficult. You’ll find boat ramps dotted all along the Mississippi, whereas Venice Marina, located on the southernmost edges of town, is your best bet for sourcing a sportfishing vessel.

Rules & Regulations

All anglers over the age of 16 are responsible for purchasing a fishing license. If you’re fishing south of the “‘saltwater line,” you’ll need a Saltwater Fishing License, alongside a Louisiana Fishing License. If you plan on targeting certain pelagic species, make sure your captain covers Offshore Landing Permits for everyone on board, otherwise you’ll need to get your own.

January

Winter is no excuse not to get out on the water in Venice, Louisiana. This can be the best month of the year to catch a huge Yellowfin Tuna or Wahoo. Multiple hookups are not out of the ordinary!

February

Wahoo, Blackfin, and trophy Yellowfin Tuna are biting. Conditions may be windy, but clear waters bring fish closer to shore. Inshore, explore the marshes for Redfish, or look for Sheepshead around the rigs just off the coast.

March

Seek out Tripletail in shallow waters. What's more, Speckled Trout start to spawn. Rains can dump muddy water from the Mississippi into the Gulf, pushing pelagics further offshore.

April

This is the best time of year to land one of Louisiana's hottest species – Swordfish. These delicious deep water-dwelling Billfish can be targeted with electric reels to save a laborious fight. 

May

Summer fishing begins in May in Venice, LA. This is prime time for offshore fishing, with deep sea favorites such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Marlin coming into play on the warm loop current from the Southern Gulf.

June

Don't miss the Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic if you want to qualify for the Offshore World Championship and the InTheBite Captain of the Year Cup. Even if you're not after a prize, charter a boat and go after a Marlin.

July

Everything is in season. Gag Grouper opens again, Wahoo is back in force, as are Blue and White Marlin, Mahi, and Sailfish. The Faux Pas Lodge Rodeo competition can't be missed.

August

Some of the offshore species have moved on, but now is coming into peak time to fish for White Marlin, which will start schooling up towards the end of the month. Look for huge Redfish inshore.

September

This is a great time of year to go after Cobia, which can be caught around the rigs in shallow water. Weighing in anything from 15 to 60 pounds, this is one of the most exciting fish to catch nearshore. 

October

Inshore and nearshore fishing is really exciting at this time of year. It's one of the best times to explore Venice's shallow waters for Flounder, Speckled Trout, and huge schooling Redfish.

November

This is one of the best times to catch Wahoo in Venice and Yellowfin Tuna is more plentiful than ever. Meanwhile, inshore fishing remains good, with Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, and Black Drum all biting well.

December

It's still warm in Venice, LA, so get out on the water! Redfish is as good as ever inshore, joined by Sheepshead, Drum, and Trout. Earn some real bragging rights by landing Yellowfin Tuna.

Bring some aspirin, because if you get onto big yellowfin tuna your whole body's going to be sore from the fight.

Started early 6:00AM, 24’ boat, worked the brackish water and into the gulf. Worked red fish hard, couldn’t find any. Capt. Brian committed we were not going in until all of us hit our limit. Stated if we have to go back out in the evening we would. Morning was slow with the high tide, finally hit a pocket and on the boat made their limit. Great time.

We started our journey at 6 in the morning sharp. It was an was trip though I’ve been deep sea fishing before myself and the other guys learned a lot from captain Troy. I do not recommend fishing on the full moon, we didn’t catch a lot but how ever Captain Troy extend our trip trying to get some fish in. It’s called fishing for a reason. I highly recommend Captain Troy he is an awesome guy.

We where not sure we could do 6 hours and Jay let us gauge that. I was ok paying full day price just not staying there if we ran out of energy . He was understanding and did a great job of dressing the fish out. We are over 60 and have taken lots of fishing trips, however we both agreed this was one of the best. Thank you Jay for an outstanding day!

Jay was awesome. He kept us on fish throughout the day, even when every other boat out was struggling to find any fish. The whole trip was more looking fishing with one of our buddies in his boat vs a guide. We are already making plans for the next trip to see Jay

We unfortunately had to cancel our trip last minute due to a heavy north cold front that brought 30+mph winds the day before. We are looking forward to rescheduling in early February. I am sure the trip will be awesome, I don't think you could find a better equipped boat.

The weather was not the most cooperative the day we went fishing. However, Captain Jay made the best effort for us and we eventually found a great fishing spot out of the weather. My boys and I caught a nice haul of fish and we had the best time. Captain Jay was great with my boys and was full of knowledge and told some great stories! I would recommend his charter to anyone. Thanks again Captain Jay!
