Venice Louisiana Redfish fishing report

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Redfish Fishing Report.
February 22 2020.

This February has been some pretty decent fishing for us for the big Redfish around the Venice Louisiana area. We have had some days where we boated over thirty of the big fish, and some days we only boated a dozen, but no really bad days. We have caught our fish on popping cork rigs and some oversized spinner baits that I get from some dick move guy up in Missouri. Yesterday would most likely been a bad day. The wind blew to gale force. Glad I was not out there on the water.
The Mississippi River stage is at 15.3 feet and is supposed to be at 16.5 feet within a week. No big surprise about that. The last few years the Mississippi River has been higher than average. No big deal as far as the fishing goes. The high river pushes the fish to the outside bays and beaches where I fish most of the time anyway.
The fog has been a real problem when we get a southerly wind off the gulf, making my job more difficult. The fish don't mind the fog, so we navigate slowly down the river looking at our radar screens. Nothing new for this time of year.
So, everything is kind of normal here in Venice this Winter. It doesn't suck. The fishing is pretty good most days. Come on down. Book a fishing trip. Life is good. Take a look at some of the pictures I took of some folks holding some nice fish. Make my day.
