Venice Louisiana Redfish fishing report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Redfish fishing Report.
September 2, 2019.
The big "BULL" Redfish bite has been awesome here in the Venice, Louisiana area. We have been fishing around the mouth of different passes and the outside bays for the over sized Redfish. A big soft plastic under a popping cork finds the Bull Redfish and then we can start throwing top water plugs for them. The more experienced anglers throw top waters without hooks, because it's the blowup on the lure that is exciting more so than boating the fish. Safer for me too. I have been out on the water about 90% of the time since April or March, and its time for a voluntary slowdown now that September has arrived. The big "BULL" Redfish seem to go offshore for three weeks or so this month and are difficult to locate, so I try not to book trips targeting the big Reds. I am tired. The slot Redfish fishing is good in September, especially since the Mississippi River stage has dropped considerably. We have started fishing in the passes of the river for keeper size fish. We will start targeting the oversized fish again late this month, and expect October through the first of the year to be really good fishing for any inshore fishing. The biggest and heaviest Redfish on average seem to always be around during the Wintertime months. We had a great January and February this year. The conditions are tougher in the Winter months, so we have to be tougher and deal with the cold, moisture, wind, and fog.
Great year for us. We have had many guests at our lodges fishing multiple boats. We really appreciate the great fishing captains that help us, and our great customers.
Please, don't forget to like our reports on Facebook and share them too! We appreciate you!
