Offshore in October

Reply
 
I have a trip set up out of Venice Louisiana for mid Oct. Just checking to see if any one out there can tell me what I should expect my fishing trip to be like? This group I am in are all solid inshore fishermen but don't get offshore to often. This is only my second trip out of Venice and I don't know what to expect since the nearly extinct red snapper are off the table. Thanks for your advice!

Are you going with a charter?

Yellowfin Tuna are on fire close in at this time of year

There is no better time to be in Venice. Tuna and other pelagic species are at its best in Oct. and the inshore bite (redfish, trout) is perfect if the river falls some. It has been on the rise and dirty as we speak. I would bring ice chests for fillets.
