Redfish are the most abundant species of fish in the Venice, La. area.
This area is considered the Redfish capital of the world because of the variety and abundance ranging from the smaller 16″ Rat Reds up to 45″ plus Bull Reds. There is nowhere better for Red fishing.
The Mississippi River has built the perfect ecosystem for Red fish to thrive.
Roseau cane, grass filled ponds, and the interior marshes of the Mississippi Delta hold an abundance of different species of fish, crabs, and shrimp, which are the staple food source for Redfish. When you turn on your favorite fishing show on any channel, it is very likely that if you see anyone Red fishing, they are in the Venice area. Tournament anglers love to fish this area because they know it will be a day filled with catching fish.
We mainly fish for them using shrimp under a cork, but we can catch them in a variety of ways such as sight casting, top water plugs, live bait, plastics, and spoons. Spinning rods are the preferred reel, matched with 7′ 10-17lb. Rods. We do have bait casters available upon request.
