I haven't fished in Venice in several years. I have always fished down there with a guide. I recently purchased my first boat and headed out next week. I cant say that I remember anywhere to go. Any helpful information will be appreciated and put to good use. TIA
check with a marina down their and see if the river is green yet at the jump ( Venice at the river) A few years back in late November we waxed the big mules along the rocks on the west side of the river from the jump to a few miles down using a trolling motor and Matrix shrimp creole and other swim baits. Troll 50-80 feet from the rocks. Throw it up against the rocks and let it almost hit the bottom. 6 of us ( in two boats) caught 150 mule trout (3-4 pounds) three days in a row. The fish bit all day long, and it was one after the other - best ever for me.

Also try the first spillway on the right about 3 miles from the jump.

Depending on the size of your rig, Breton Island should still be holding trout- fish the inside area against the old oil rig- you can see it on Google Earth- it is the circle looking area on the north east side - but on the inside.
