Welcome to Cajun Country down in Venice, Louisiana. We are serious about our fishing and hunting down here and we strive to make your trip with us a fun and productive one!
The waters of the Gulf of Mexico off of Venice, Louisiana are some of the finest fishing grounds in the country. The oil rig platforms offer structure for a wide variety of fish. Snapper, grouper, redfish and amberjack are just some of the species that are around these offshore oil rigs. Just along the Louisiana coast there are more than 3,000 oil rigs.
Louisiana tuna fishing provides action in our offshore waters year-round. Tuna fishing offers a very exciting and fast paced pursuit of these fast swimming fish. They are constantly on the move and can be seen in schools busting the surface of the water. Our yellowfin tuna average around 50-pounds with some smaller and on occasion a really large fish well over 100-pounds!
Tuna fishing involves using chum, live bait and sometimes we even fly a kite. In the midst of tuna fishing we also come across wahoo, mahi-mahi, marlin and sailfish. A day out offshore can be very exciting and bring lots of great fishing.
During the winter months we can travel about 50 miles to the Midnight Lump for some tuna action. This area the water depth comes up shallower and there is a large population of bait. When there’s bait, there’s someone eating the bait. The bag limit per person is 3 tuna per day.
I’m a local captain and was born and raised in the area and I have fished the waters of the Mississippi Delta all my life. Just a 90-minute drive from the city of New Orleans it is a whole new world south of the city.Read More
