Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
October 13 2016.

I took Gary Myers, his son, Doug and their friend Bruce out today for some "BULL" Redfish fishing down river from Venice. Gary has come down the last few years with his friends fishing with me for three days at a time and staying here at the lodge. We did pretty good today boating 31 BULL Redfish and four slot Reds. Doug and Bruce were tied with the biggest Redfish at 24 pounds until Gary boated a 34 pounder. 34 pounds is a big Red. Gary's biggest ever. Today was Bruce's and Doug's first day of Redfishing ever. They had to work for the fish because it was windy and almost rough in the protected area we were at. The Redfish liked the gold spinnerbaits we had . We have two more days to fish with these guys from Missouri, and we hope it goes well.
The Redfish fishing in general has been more difficult lately, and down for the year for sure. I don't really know why this year has been tougher fishing. It's been a weird year weather wise. The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is just below five feet and it just does not want to fall and clear up. We are used to a clear Mississippi River this time of year, so I hope it does fall the next couple weeks. We have a lot of days booked through December and I am confident the fishing will improve a great deal. Check out the pictures taken today.
