Venice Louisiana Fishing Report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
November 12, 2017

A week ago today we set a record for this year with 81 "BULL" Redfish caught on my boat with three anglers fishing. These fish ranged from 16 to 26 lbs. These guys from Alabama even took some breaks in between fish to get a breather. Previously for this year, back in February, the record was 70 big Redfish with three anglers on the boat. The big roaming Reds have been active. It helped that we had a week of really calm weather to target the fish on the coastline. The Sharks were not hassling us either. For the last couple of days the wind has really picked up, so we are limited on where we can fish, but we caught 18 big Reds yesterday ranging from 16 to 22 lbs. Today the wind is blowing 25 to 30 mph and I am glad I have the day off. We have not had many days off the last couple of months and we are booked almost every day fishing multiple boats until December. Business slows the second half of December due to the holidays, but the fishing is usually good. I think November and December are my favorite months to fish, because of the cooler temperatures and the season change. Once April rolls around I start wishing Summer will come.
Anyway, we can't have perfect weather every day, so we make the best of what mother nature gives us. That is what it is all about with everything else.
