I arrowed this 240 pound, 16 point on Oct 28, 2012 on private land near Baton Rouge. We greenscored the buck at 169.
These are a few pics from the last week.. We still have boats available for June and July. Thanks
I was lucky enough today to fish with Rick Brooks, Troy, and John from BR. These guys are great and really make a day at work like a vacation! We got on the big trout early and filled the big Skeeter fish box to the brim! 3-5 pound trout. On the way in we hit a redfish hole that I haven't tried in 10 years and scored big time!!! 15 casts, 15 redfish in the box! A great day with some great guys. It was pretty rough today but the big Skeeter handles rough water great. I've had a few folks that have fished in some Gravois type (wannabe a Gravois) boats recently and they say that the big skeeters and Rangers are head and shoulders better in rough water. They can't believe how dry and smooth these big fiberglass boats ride. And our live shrimp will live twice as long as a wannabe Gravois. Just saying. Lol
We have 5 boats available so call and come experience the finest fishing in the WORLD! Venice, LA
VENICE CHARTERS REPORT-I was lucky enough to take out David Gary and his buddies from Southern Marsh on Monday. These guys have a great line of fishing clothes and a barracuda wire sunglass strap thats really unique! southernmarsh.com. We started out looking for redfish and the first stop was the ticket! The guys fished spinnerbaits and H&H soft plastic next to the rouseau canes for some serious action..In less than an hour, we had our limit of pretty reds and went looking for speck trout.. We found a few nice trout and finished the day with some Bass action! Venice grand slam, bass, redfish, and speckled trout all in the same day!!Give us a call @ 225-268-8420 or go to my site www.venicecharters.com to book your spring VENICE CHARTER!
I took out Toby and his 10 yr old son, Isaiah. We got on the trout early on live shrimp and they caught their limit at the first stop. 8:30 am. On to the redfish hole. Easy limit there, quick. Isaiah caught some really nice trout and the biggest red of the day! He had a ball, but was ccomplaing that his arm hurt from reelin in all those redfish.LOL. We also had two big doormat flounder............We are pretty limited in the area we can fish right now from the oil spill closures. But the calm winds and great conditions are giving us a break and THE FISH ARE HUNGRY.....www.venicecharters.com....PH-225-268-8420
My customers this morning said, 'We really like speckled trout. Don't really care about reds'. Music to Capt. Brent's ears. I pointed the big Skeeter up river and popped out near Ostrica. It didn't take very long to get back on the trout. I had a pretty box a few days ago off this reef, and they were there, BIG TIME. They limited there on Blue moon with Chartreuse tail Deadley Dudleys under Bomber Corks.. Nice trout in the 16-19 inch range.A couple of Lagniappe Juice enticed REDFISH, and a cold Kentwood, and we headed in.....Back at the Lodge now eating Capt. Larry's famous pork chops and fried cornbread!!!WE ARE STILL FISHING HERE AT VENICE CHARTERS. Call 225-268-8420 for openings.WWW.VENICECHARTERS.com
Smashed the reds yesterday with my trio from Atlanta. Kevin, Curt, and Taylor were catching from the moment the power pole hit the bottom. Boxed limit then caught and released a bunch. Probably caught 40-50 pretty and they headed back to ATL with sore arms and an ice chest full to the top with redfish filets. And a big flounder thrown in for Lagniappe. Jigs under rattle corks were best, but we caught some on spinnerbaits too. Booking up fast for the VENICE spring bite. Call 225-268-8420 or www.venicecharters.com. Captain Brent Roy
The weekend was pretty good to us in Venice. Friday was pretty tough, but a friend still limited out on nice redfish. I didnt get on the fish. But we really waxed them on Sunday. Fishing along the canes with Rattle corks and Deadley Dudley Terror tails with a little squirt of Lagniappe Juice saltwater attractant, my customers landed a nice limit of 15 redfish. The surprise of the day was, we also caught a dozen REALLY nice Speckled Trout, from 2lb -4.5lb. A great day on the water. Check us out at www.venicechartrers.com....Capt. Brent Roy-225-268-8420
I had the pleasure of fishing with four great men from all over the country. These guys are in S LA as volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. They are building houses for the needy. Well, they wanted to catch a few redfish while they are here. I figured we might be able to catch a limit but I didn't expect to catch 50! We caught 4 limits easily at my first stop on rattle corks and shrimp. Left there when they slowed down. Well, spot two was absolutely infested with 25-40 inch reds. Every cast. The guys caught and released thirty or so more and we left em biting. Fun day at the office. If you are feeling the blues since hunting season is over and need an outdoor fix, give us a call. www.venicecharters.com or call 225-268-8420... Three or four guys fish for only $200 each!
The redfish continue to be hot in Venice. Limits are easy and Capt. Larry reported a limit in only 20 minutes the other day. With the river influence still muddy, look for pockets of "cleaner" water. You may never find green water, but cleaner muddy water is all it takes sometimes. Often, the green water is just a foot or so under the murk. Chrt plastic tipped with shrimp has been the top producer, as usual. Duck reports are spotty. I talked to a friend that killed 20 one day and 2 the next, same spot. I think the high river and abundance of floodd crops up north really hurt us. Even the places I hunt in Arkansas have been poor this year. The birds are just scattered out.....We have two camps for rent for your next trip to Venice. If youre looking for more than a hotel or a FEMA trailer, check us out. Also have a couple of boat sheds for lease. Happy Holidays and hope you all have a great New Year!...Captain Brent Roy....www.venicecharters.com...225-268-8420 for rental info or charter info...

Had my good friend and client Mr Boone again today from HBURG. Chased the teal yest pm with no luck. Told them I'd make up for it with a limit of trout this morning. Started with a bang with 11 BIG specks hitting the ice quick, like 11 casts. Then, a LARGE bullshark ate a 4 pound speck boatside...Trout and bullsharks apparently don't coincide. That shut the bite OFF. But with a little persistence and a ton of patience we figured out that the trout had gone deeper. Once we found em, that was it. Caught the rest of a 3 man limit on H&H plastics and Deadley Dudley terror tails....of really big specks for this time of yr. Topped it off with a 3 man limit of Teal this afternoon and had a ball working my new dog Dixie. She has picked up over 60 teal so far for Venice Charters.

VENICE CHARTERS UNLIMITED, LLC- Captain Larry Averitt and I had Marty Mangrum and his group yesterday. We started off in an area where we have been catching some big trout. The stiff SE winds had stirred that area up, though, and we ended up going to the east and fishing the canes. We got on a great bite with a little assistance from our friend Jimmy Boyce and put 100 trout in the boats quick. The big trout we caught Wednesday are still there, just need calm conditions to catch them. All fish yesterday were on live shrimp or Chrt plastics under a rattle cork..Both boats had a few redfish mixed in..

Had a great group of guys out this week from the Baton Rouge area. All four boats caught redfish and a few black drum and trout. Saturday, we had Jason Mcmurray and some friends down for a Bachelor party and the 4 guys caught over 140 redfish that morning. I scouted a little while yesterday afternoon and found the trout. They are getting close to really busting loose. Couldnt get a bite under a cork, all bites on purple/chrt paddle tails cranked on 1/4 oz heads. Today will probably be a redfish event with wind forcast to be 15-20 SE. But it's not blowing too bad right now down here. 5 kt SSE.
