Visit Venice, Louisiana for the Ultimate Offshore Louisiana Charter Fishing Trip

If you want to experience the fishing trip of a lifetime, you cannot go wrong by choosing to start your journey just off the coast of Venice, Louisiana, as we do every day. While the Gulf of Mexico is home to some of the most diverse and abundant varieties of sport fish, many of the best locations for fishing are close to the Louisiana coast. That’s why fishermen of every kind, from TV celebrities to seasoned anglers to Tuna Virgins, come to Venice to fish from all over the world.

The Unique Fishing Opportunities Only Available Here

It is no coincidence that so many varieties of fish can be found near Venice, Louisiana where the Mississippi River deposits cold, nutrient-rich water into the warmer waters of the gulf. This combination of water, nutrients and the steep continental shelf makes for fishing unlike just about anywhere else in the world.

There are several landmarks that attract many of the most coveted types of fish:

The Midnight Lump

Approximately 20 miles off the coast of Louisiana is what locals call The Midnight Lump, famous for producing giant yellow fin tuna (200+ pounds). The “lump” is actually a salt dome that creates a shallow area of water where you will find some of the most exciting fishing opportunities available during the winter months.

Continental Shelf

The continental shelf, which runs throughout a significant portion of the gulf just off Louisiana’s coast, attracts some of the largest game fish including massive yellow fin tuna and billfish. Along the deep waters of the shelf, floating rigs provide habitat for bait – which in turn, of course, attracts the big fish!

Rip Fishing

The warm waters of the gulf often collide to form what fisherman call “The Rip”, a place where two water currents meet. When fishing along the rip, we often find miles of floating cover provided by sargassum and underneath which small fish run to hide. Rip fishing trips often produce mahi-mahi, bull dolphin, wahoo and billfish.

Rig Fishing

The Louisiana coast attracts anglers that are interested in near shore rig fishing. There are over 3,700 oilrigs located off the coast of Louisiana, and they all attract numerous varieties of fish, depending on the depth of each rig. Rig fishing trips generally target red snapper, but when snapper season is closed we also target cobia, amberjack and grouper at the rigs.

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!
