Venice LA Backwater Fishing for Bullreds and Slot Reds

The Michelle Adkins crew from Texas came down here to Venice, LA! They had a great time backwater fishing. Inshore, they caught some nice looking Bull Reds and Slot Reds!

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. (Read more about backwater fishing.)
