Venice Louisiana Fishing Report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report.
January 20, 2018

We have had some solid days fishing for the big Redfish here in the Venice area this January, but we have had to postpone some trips due to super bad weather we have had. Half the time so far this year we have had freezing temperatures with very windy conditions. Getting a "BULL" Redfish to hit during one of these fronts would unlikely happen, and it would be really uncomfortable for us anglers. It has been much colder this year than average. When we have gone out fishing we have had 10 to 25 fish boated, and I spoke with one of my guide friends this morning and he told me he went out yesterday to an area we have been fishing and they had boated 41 big Reds. 41 oversized Redfish is a really good day for this time of year. The Reds were feeding a couple days after a huge weather event. I expect today and tomorrow would be good days as well, but I am not booked and I have chores to do, otherwise I would take my flats boat out for a ride and target some small fish.
To sum it up, so far this year my clients from California, Georgia, and North Dakota only got two days of fishing in, instead of three, but had a good time fishing for big fish and enjoyed staying with us at the lodges. Another group from California was supposed to fish with me the first week of January, but I called them ahead of time to tell them the conditions were so bad that they should not come, so they rescheduled for April. We don't have as much on the books this time of year, so we have more down time for maintenance.
