Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
July 14, 2017

The fishing has been good around the Venice area for the last few weeks. The weather has been relatively stable, so we have been able to move around to different areas to hunt the fish. Most days the slot Redfish have been biting once you find out which patch of canes they like for the day, and Specs are being caught at the platforms with live Shrimp under a sliding cork. We have had some 40 plus Bull Redfish days, but some days they are spread thin, and we have to work hard to boat 8 or 10 of them. The big Redfish have been inconsistent, but I think the falling Mississippi River will help get them in thick close to shore. The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is at 8.4 feet and will start falling even more next week. I have a lot of clients coming in for the rest of the month ( all Summer really ) that specifically want the biggest Redfish they can hook into, so the big boys need to start showing up whenever I want them to. The Sharks need to go offshore and leave us alone. Anyway, my guys and I have been super busy and as far as I know everyone has been having a really good time. The cloud cover has been keeping us from burning up. Later in the afternoons is when it has been getting hot after we are already in cleaning fish. I say the fish need to be active all the time. It's good for business.
