Venice, Louisiana backwater fishing offers some of the most incredible Red Fish, Speckled Trout and Flounder fishing there is.
Backwater fishing in Venice, LA, takes us fishing the flats, bayous, ponds, and through the numerous types of vegetation that surrounds our Delta. To fish these types of areas we take our bay boats that have very shallow drafts to get into areas that hold fish. Most fish are caught fishing with artificial or natural bait under a cork. The most abundant species of backwater fish are Red Fish. They are very aggressive and make any anglers day.
The delta and coast line which is mostly Roseau Cane and Marsh surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, is home to an enormous population of Red Fish(drum).
They come in all sizes depending on the area you fish, from Bull Reds 15lbs. plus all the way down to the smaller 16-20 inch reds which are excellent table fare. Not only are they great eating but they put up a fight that most anglers will not soon forget. In the same areas we also catch Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Drum fish. Every once in a while the occasional green trout shows up as well. All months are excellent to fish inshore. The inlets, bays, and ponds that we fish are usually always calm and are protected from windy days most of the time, so your day on the water is very comfortable.
We can accommodate groups up to 4 anglers per boat, but 3 or less is ideal.
The day of fishing is usually about 8 hours, either casting artificial or natural bait under a cork or weight.
We fish from either a 24ft. Yellowfin Bay Boat or 25′ Black Jack Bay Boats that are perfect to fish our area.
You must provide your own food and drinks for the day.
We can accommodate large groups (30+ anglers).
Everyone 16 and older will need a La. Saltwater fishing license or a $10.00 charter pass (good for 3 days).
