Louisiana Offshore Fishing Charters

Catching Red Snapper to Blue Marlin, Tuna to Wahoo – And Everything in Between

The Gulf of Mexico is home to many different varieties of large sport fish, and few places offer better access to nearby rig fishing or offshore fishing adventures than Venice, Louisiana.

Whether you are interested in targeting one specific type of fish, or just want to have an action-packed day of fishing, we have the equipment and expertise necessary to ensure a great day on the water.

A few of the popular varieties of fish that we often target off the Louisiana coast include:


Tuna, yellowfin tuna in particular, are abundant in the Gulf waters just outside of Venice. In fact, this is one of the few places in the world where you can go tuna fishing any time of the year. These fish travel in large schools, can reach weights over 100 pounds, and are often found near oil rigs and the famous Midnight Lump.

Red Snapper

These bright-red fish can be found near the oil rigs and sunken debris that is abundant off Louisiana’s Gulf Coast. We typically bottom fish in less than a few hundred feet of water for snapper, or sometimes use chumming to bring these highly coveted, and delicious, fish to the surface for you. Catching other reef-dwelling fish such as mangrove snapper, cobia and even grouper is common on our trips as well.


What looks like a missile, runs like a cheetah and tastes great on the grill? If you’ve never caught a wahoo before, you don’t know what you’re missing. Wahoo put up a great fight and provide tasty, white, flaky, and mouthwatering meat. These extremely fast fish travel alone and are very difficult to catch, but we are eager to take you to the oil rig platforms where our anglers have the most success.


A white marlin is considered a great sport fish for many anglers. But the massive billfish, such as blue marlin, are one of the most coveted forms of big game fish. These extremely powerful fish can reach lengths over 100 inches and can weigh well over 1,000 pounds. Captain Brett will take you to the deep-water locations off the Louisiana coast where you will have the opportunity to chase several species of billfish including white marlin, blue marlin, sailfish and swordfish.


Mahi-mahi, also often referred to as dolphin (not Flipper), are the ideal fish for both experienced fishermen and people on their very first fishing trip. These fish are fast, deliver a great fight, travel in abundant schools and are attracted to many types of bait. Fishing for mahi-mahi is always entertaining and generally very rewarding.

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!!

Summertime in this here in the fishing is off to a great start! Here is the report from my Lodge.

Summertime is here!!!! Had an amazing Memorial weekend with the Fairbanks group. These guys have been fishing Memorial weekend with me for eight years now. And we always have a blast! Not forgetting the other trips they take here during the year as well!!
With tropical storm Alberto bearing down on us for the weekend we made the decision to take a quick Friday afternoon trip and not run offshore on Sunday. Friday afternoon we made a quick limit of mangrove snapper and headed back to the lodge for dinner. On Saturday we ran off shore in search of tuna. In the morning we added a couple of black fin tuna to the box then made a short stop to catch our limit of Amberjack. We then headed to pull trolling baits on the rip line. We ended up catching 114 pounds of what was left of probably a 150 pound yellowfin tuna that the sharks decided to take a few bites out of. Calling it a day after some great fishing we headed back to The Waypoint for a crawfish boil that evening. By this time tropical storm Alberto was making his presence known in Destin and far away from us. Even though it was too rough to go offshore on Sunday Captain Rok of Venice Guide Service Took the guys out inshore fishing for redfish. And they had a blast quickly catching their limits between two boats by 11 AM.

We hope everyone had as wonderful of a memorial day weekend as we did here in Venice. The summer is just starting and we have a few months left of some excellent fishing give us a call to get in on the action!
