Venice Louisiana Fishing report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
June 15 2016

Since the beginning of June the weather in south Louisiana has gotten more stable, which has let us fisherman fish more areas due to calmer seas. Calm seas really help out because the fish are not everywhere and they don't always bite if they are there. Pop up thunder storms are typical this time of year and we have had our share of them. We have had some good days with the "BULL" Redfish action, but in general the fishing is still slower than what we are used to. I believe the fishing is slower this year because the Mississippi River has been high since December. Usually, the river is low in the Winter and does not rise till April or May. I think the majority of the big Redfish are offshore in the saltier water, because they got tired of the fresh water. Normally, I don't care what the river stage is and I don't think the Reds do, but the Mississippi has been abnormally high for too long. At least, that is what I think. Fortunately, we have had some nice fish boated. I am glad most of my clients fish multiple days just in case we do have a real tough day. Over half of our clients have fished with us before, so they know what it is like to catch 40 plus Redfish that average over 20 lbs. I wish I could make it happen everyday. The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is below 10 feet and is falling hard. I think this is going to help us out in a big way this year. I think the fishing is going to get much more consistant. More fish caught is better for business.
Call me, plenty of space left for November and Decemberů
