Venice Louisiana fishing Report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana fishing report.
September 4, 2018
We have been really busy here at the Fish On Venice Lodge for the last month. Really, we have been busy since March. We postponed the fishing trips for the next few days due to hurricane-tropical storm Gordon. I am treating it as a vacation. I need a few days to get off my feet some. I have had very few days off. I am thankful to be busy, but we need a break here and there.
The fishing has been good. As usual, we have been targeting the Redfish, especially the big "BULL" Redfish, but also the slot Redfish. We have caught a few Tripletail as well. We have had to dodge some popup thunderstorms, but the cloud cover has made it comfortable to fish. It has been cooler here than inland. The Mississippi River stage has been low, so the slot Redfish have been biting in the river passes. The oversized Reds have been off the outside bays and beaches as usual. As long as we don't have more tropical disturbances I would guess that the fishing will be consistant. I would not say the fishing has been great, just good. We have to find the fish every day. The sooner we find the fish the better.
I sure am glad we are getting the west side of this storm.
Stay safe.

Target Species:

bull red, redfish
