winter redfishing in Venice louisiana

Venice - Saltwater Fishing Report

February 21, 2015 report.

The big "BULL" Redfish cooperated with us last week in a big way. I took Jim, Eddie, and Mark from East Tennessee out fishing for three days last week. We caught 25 to 35 big Redfish each day with two largest at 30 lbs. and the smallest at 14 lbs. Most of our Redfish were between 19lbs. to 26lbs. The fishing up where they live has been crummy this Winter, so they wanted action and they got it. We tried for some smaller Reds and struck out on them, but we kept some fish under 20lbs. each day for them to take home for the grill. They ended up having a good bit of fish to take home. We released a bunch of fish during that three days (about 90). I had not been out on the water for several weeks prior to last week, so I am glad the weather was fairly good and I remembered how to fish artificial lures. These guys are coming back in June.
The Mississippi River stage in New Orleans is at 3.2 feet today, and it is supposed to drop to 2.5 feet five days from now, but with all the rain to the North of us I think that it will change and start rising some. No big deal, because Spring is around the corner and the Mississippi is going to rise like it does every year. We are along for the ride, and we just need to look at what mother nature gives us on a daily basis and do our best to find fish that are biting.
We still have some openings for March and April if anyone wants to come down and go after these fish with us. Just give us a call. Stay warm and dry.
