Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report
Venice Louisiana Fishing report.
November 29, 2016.
The big Redfish fishing around the Venice area has been as good as it has been all year the last three weeks or so. We have had to move around to different areas to fish due to the changing wind direction, but the 15 to 36 lb. Redfish have been in different locations for us to find. For once, I have been off for the week of Thanksgiving, so I have not fished for a week, and enjoyed the time off the water to do chores mostly. I was supposed to be out today, tomorrow and the next day with some clients from south Florida, but the forecast called for really severe weather so we decided to postpone the three day fishing trip until January. So far, that was a bad move, because today is fishable. Tomorrow is supposed to be real nasty. Maybe the fish are not biting today. Who knows. About half the time when I cancel due to weather it's the wrong decision, so I try to stick to the schedule.
December was supposed to be less charters for me, but that has changed. I have gotten calls from folks wanting to go fishing. That is good, because November and December are probably my favorite months to fish. Not that the Bull Redfishing is any better, but a cooler time to fish. The Mississippi River is usually low this time of year, so the water is generally clearer and we can see the non hooked Redfish swim up to the boat in schools. The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is around 2.5 ft., so that is what we would expect this time of year. When it comes to fishing, I always expect the unexpected. We never know how the course of a day will go. We hope it is fun, safe, and successful. The Winter fishing can be really good in this area, so if you want in on it just contact us. Have a good one.
