Foggy days and redfishing in Venice Louisiana

Capt. Shawn Lanier
April 3, 2015
Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

April 3, 2015 Report.

The fishing here in Venice has been more difficult for the last week and a half for me anyway, but we have still caught some really nice fish. The Redfish bite has been off somewhat. The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is currently cresting at 14.2 feet and will stay at that stage for the next 5 days and then start falling. The whole Mississippi River is falling according to all the stations north of here. I am sure the fish bite will get better here shortly. We have just had to work hard for our fish, and that can happen any time of year. The fog continues to be around in the mornings, and then the warm days burn it off. I am glad I have radar for that fog.
Although the fishing has not been at its best for the last week, everyone has caught some nice Redfish and has had a good time, so if you are thinking about coming down you may as well come, because it is fixing to get better. The fish are just in a transition with all the warm weather and high river and whatever else we don't know about and understand. I wish I could be a fish for a couple of days to get educated. Like a killer whale. Anyway, wish I could say the fish were jumping in the boat, but we have had to move around and work for them. I don't just report the good news.
It' s fair and balanced news, like Fox.
