venice Louisiana fishing report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
July 29, 2017.

The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans has dropped to about 5.5 feet and the water flow has slowed and the water is clearing up. A low river will help us locate fish easier and give the fish a better attitude.
Over the past couple of weeks we have had many clients at the lodge and the fishing has been good, except for a couple days. The big "BULL" Redfish are around the coastline and are easier to locate using artificial lures. We have accidentally been catching some Speckled Trout as well. We throw the trout in the box, but our primary target is the big Reds. 85% of our clients want the big Reds because they cannot catch them back at home. They can catch the walleye and crappie and other good eating fish that don't fight.
We have been running two to four boats a day taking folks out from all over the U.S. Kentucky, Texas, Missouri, Illinois , North Louisiana, Alabama, over the last couple of weeks. Nine of the Kentucky guys are coming again next month. Leila gets pissed when I run four boats because it works her hard. Good thing I have good help.
Anyway, the fishing is good and everyone has been having a good time. Hope the air conditioner doesn't break down.
