We LOVE chasing redfish in the Venice marsh. But on the right day, you can also catch snapper, cobia, tripletail, sheepshead & much more!
You can upgrade your trip for just $200 more to cover the additional tackle, prep & time on the water.
Tripletail are unbelievable to eat and a nice addition to any inshore trip. We may find them swimming around platforms or floating debris in the water.
Red snapper are arguably Venice's tastiest catch. Growing up to 20 lbs, they'll give you all the fight you want!
We catch snapper when permitted within season using heavier tackle near rigs and sunken wrecks.
Sometimes called a “lemon fish”, large cobia are plentiful around the nearshore coastal areas and rigs of Venice at certain times of the year. These fish taste amazing on the grill and put up an incredible fight due to their size. If you’d like to target Cobia please contact us to discuss this ahead of time.
Sheepshead are another local favorite among anglers, with many comparing its taste to that of speckled trout. Sheepshead love a dead shrimp, and are common along the Louisiana coast and often make their way into our boxes on both trout and redfish charters.
Local anglers will trade you a flounder for a redfish almost anytime. It’s flaky white meat is delicious when baked and they’re fun to catch. Flounder helps round out our fishing box many days and are plentiful throughout the same spots where we target redfish and trout.
The black drum is the close cousin the redfish and can weigh up to 50lbs. They are extremely common on redfishing trips as black drum and redfish frequent the same areas and have the same feeding patterns. Black drum put up a great fight and the meat tastes great as well.
While we do not specifically target sharks, nor do we keep them if caught, the reality is that sharks are everywhere throughout the Venice marshes and coast. Most sharks caught on trout and redfishing trips tend to be smaller sharks (in the 5-15 pound range), but they do make for a fun fight and great picture opportunity before we release them.
However, we have hooked and fought sharks well over the 240lb. range
