Default Venice La. Fishing Trip

Planning a June '09 five day trip to Venice for 4 guys and would appreciate advice and suggestions. We have fished previously from Port Eads when it was in business but are now considering Venice Marina or immediate vicinity for a home base. We are experienced in offshoretrolling for dolphin, wahoo, and billfish and will be taking a 22' McKee Craft rigged for offshore fishing. We have never fished the rigs for YFT and want to focus on these fish for a couple of days. Probably charter one day to learn the ropes and then use our boat.

In addition, plan on doing some inshore redfish/trout, etc. fishing for several days. Again, probably charter one day, or have a guide come on our boat, and then fish our boat inshore for a couple of days.

I am looking for some experienced advice on Venice as follows:

1. Lodging and wet slip. I have found a number of houseboats available in Venice where you can moor your boat to the houseboat. Rates look to be about $ 200 night. Are there better options that we should consider??

2. Charter boat and Capt. for a day of offshore rig fishing for yellowfin tuna, etc. Recommendations?

3. Inshore guide. Recommendations for a guide on our boat ,or, alternatively, do we really need an inshore guide. Local info. and advice might be enough??

4. Food in Venice. I know Venice Marina has a restaurant but??? How about breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Better to do our own sandwiches or other options??

Any other advice or recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Reel Peace charters for offshore fishing and one of the guys from Cajun adventures for inshore, not sure if they will go on your boat though. If you want to stay right there a houseboat is a good idea. Cajun fishing adventures is really nice but its 15 minutes or so up the road. They cook all your meals for you

I work on a crew boat in Venice. There is not a whole lot down this way as far as stores and such. I see that big Sea Vee with trips running around pretty often!



If you guys come down and just happen to have more fish than you know what to do with. I am sure there is a very hungry crew that would be very greatful oke.



Good news is they finally put up some markers in South Pass!
