I am planning on fishing in October, offshore for palagics, tuna, wahoo, dolphin, kings, etc..
I know Venice is stellar for targeting these animals, but offers little for the non-fisherman (wives, girlfriends, etc.). Also, on blow days it offers little in entertainment and restaurants. I am not interested in fishing for Reds and trout.
With that said, can I have equal success fishing out of Grand Isle offshore?
The Mississippi offers protection on the route south to the rigs and shrimp boats. How far would I have to travel to get to productive rigs and water from Grand Isle in October?
Please feel free to offer comments on bait, fuel, lodging, food, etc...
I'll be fishing in the Gulf, out of Venice starting in October and finishing in Port St. Joe in April.
I'd like to use the services of Hilton's, Rip Chart, or Roffer's.
I'd like your opinions of which is the most beneficial for finding Rigs, rip currents, temperature breaks, etc....
I should note my phone is an android.
Thanks for your help!
We have four guys in Venice looking to go fishing Friday, 4/29.
Our boat and trailer had mechanical issues on the way down from Michigan. They won't be there until Saturday. So, we can only afford to cover expenses.
