Venice Louisiana Redfish Report

Capt. Shawn Lanier
April 28, 2020
Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

Venice Louisiana Redfish Fishing Report.
April 28, 2020.
This last weekend We had Troy, Randy, and Bill fishing with us from the great city of Memphis in the great state of Tennessee. They traveled South through the great state of Mississippi before entering the great state of Louisiana. Finally, their delightful voyage ended in the great parish of Plaquemines, where they wanted to participate in fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout. For some reason they wanted me, Capt. Shawn Lanier, to be their host. Troy was down last month with me. He and Randy come fishing with me every year. This time they brought along Bill. Now, Bill is a fine man with long black hair who smokes and prefers Coors light for his beverage. Troy prefers smoking Camels and likes Miller light. Randy does not smoke, but he does put away Bud light efficiently. None of these fine gentleman crush their beer cans before putting them in my designated trash can on the boat, which is one of my live wells that I never have used for bait. I am relieved that they don't crush their beer cans, because I really don't like the sound of them being crushed. The sound of a beer can being crushed reminds me of an animal being hit by a vehicle on the highway and dragging up under the vehicle and tearing up the exhaust pipe, and finally rolling off the road into the ditch. These three fine souls from Memphis are my kind of guys.
After launching my trusty bayboat, with the help of my skillful rope holding crew, we commenced to get underway down the muddy Mississippi River to zero in on a likely fishing spot. We found a spot to fish shortly after and proceeded to catch Speckled Trout and Redfish. Mostly trout. The most exciting catch was Bill's 21 lb. Bull Redfish. Bill's first Bull Redfish. Anyway, they had a good time and so did I. I can't wait until they come back.
Business has been slow for April due to the Covid19 virus. May going to be slow as well. Fortunately, not many clients have canceled trips for these months, instead they have postponed until later in the year. I do think fishing is one of the safer activities people could participate in during this time. We have to get out of the house sometime and practice safe behavior. Keep a safe distance from others, watch what you touch, wash your hands a lot. This virus is not going away anytime soon. You may as well book you a fishing trip if you had wanted to to begin with. You more likely to catch it at the grocery store or touching cash. Be careful out there. Have a good one. Adios, Amigos.
