Venice Louisiana Fishing Report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana fishing report.
July 6, 2016

Finally, The Bull Redfish fishing has turned on to our normal standards here around the Venice area. Finally, we are boating 40 to 50 big Reds per trip without being surprised about it. The only thing I can complain about now is when the sharks move in on us and the weather. Usually, the high Mississippi River in the Spring does not bother my fishing, but this year the river was high all Winter and that pushed my Bull Redfish offshore. The Mississippi River stayed up around 11 to 12 feet for much longer than usual and the big Redfish got tired of it and went offshore where they are difficult to target. Now, the river has dropped to around five feet in New Orleans and continues to drop, so the big Reds have moved back to the coast line where I hang out. Fishing has been so tough I was going after Speckled Trout with live Shrimp and having success at it north of here. Boy, glad I don't have to fall back on that anymore. Most of the people I take out want something to pull on the line. They want to be sportsman and fake out the fish with a lure. You have to do what you have to do, but live bait is for commercial type fisherman. I sure am glad my job has gotten "funner" and easier due to the Redfish behaving right.
