Venice Louisiana Fishing Guide and lodge red fishing trips.
Venice Louisiana Fishing Trips Red fishing and Trout
Come Fish Venice, Louisiana, located about 90 minutes South-East of New Orleans near the mouth of the Mississippi River. The Venice area is one of the BEST spots in the world for light tackle saltwater fishing for hard fighting Redfish and tasty Speckled Trout, as well as many other species of gamefish!
The saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico meeting the freshwater of the mighty Mississippi River produces one of the best fisheries in the world. Louisiana has one of the most liberal creel limits on gamefish in the U.S.
The limit on Redfish is 5 per person and the limit on Speckled Trout is 25 per person. More times than not, your ice chest will be full of fish by the end of your Venice fishing trip.

Outside, there are two large covered porches for barbecues or just hanging out. Also, there are three seperate bathrooms. The lodge is elevated 20" above the ground, so in case someone has problems getting up stairs there are some quarters at floor level that they can use. Capt.
