Venice Louisiana Fishing Report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Fishing Report
March 04 2018.

February was a slow month for us here at the Fish On Venice Lodge. February usually is slow, but 12 to 15 days on the water is usually the norm. I guess we need to put out the word to the folks up North that the fishing is fair to good 60% to 70% of the time. Catching fish down here would be a lot more fun than hanging around the house in the frozen snow. March and April are busier than usual for us.
Captain Pete and myself just had a couple groups of anglers coming from Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, and North Carolina. They were all friends that decided to get reunited here for a get together. All three of Pete's days were productive good days. Two of three days for my boat went good. We concentrated on the big "BULL" Redfish all three days and caught some really nice fish. We had two that went over 30 lbs. Many were over 25 lbs. and a bunch from 12lbs. to 25 lbs. We also boated a 34lb. freshwater Catfish on our standard Redfish rig, a plastic under a popping cork. We caught most of our fish in murky water instead of the clearer water. Good thing that was the case, because the Mississippi River stage has really jumped up early this year, so we are mostly forced to fish muddy water. The fish don't leave because the river gets high. Our biggest challenge is to fish where the effects of the wind are not blowing us around, so we change locations mucho. Check out our pictures of some nice Redfish. Until next time!
Tell your friends up North about us here down south, we are open even in January, February and March! No frozen lakes here…. 
