We had a great trip to Venice and enjoyed limits of quality snapper. The current was strong, so make sure you are a good distance up current from the rigs and bring plenty of weight.
As we were unloading the boat we (stupidly) set down the Lowrance HDS-12 for a second and it was picked up by someone. If you see anyone trying to sell one, please let me know. The houseboat owners and the other guest around us could not believe it and wanted to help, but there was a white, highly tattooed gentlemen in a grey Toyota pickup that was in the area but got out as fast as he could. We were staying in the Venice Marina cabins on the south side of the marina.
