If you are looking for a fun, relaxing Venice Louisiana fishing vacation I recommend fishing 3 days or more if you are coming in from a long distance or out of state. You may as well stay a few days to get the fishing out of your system. The best time to come fishing is during the week days because there is less traffic at the marinas and less boats on the water.If you want to stay an extra night just ask me about it and we will make arrangements.

For all-inclusive fishing and lodging we usually have bacon, toasts and eggs for breakfast before we go fishing.I also have cereals if you want something lighter. I'll have sandwiches and soft drinks for lunch on the boat. You will have a snack when you come back from fishing but don't fill up because for dinner we'll have seafood or steaks or gumbo. If you do not eat fish or any type of seafood, please let me know at time of booking so we can have something else for you.  Call me to get more information on the lodging arrangements and availability. Let me know if you CANNOT climb stairs.

  • If you want to use live bait, and if available, I can make arrangements to buy it at market price and it will be added on to your total.
  • Fish cleaning is included in the price.  NOTE: your fish will be cleaned and bagged up in Ziploc bags then kept on ice.If you would prefer to vacuum seal and freeze the fish right away, we have a vacuum sealer at your disposition that you can use to customize your bags of fish. Please, bring your own bags ( already made is easier...). One of us will show you how to use the machine.We have a deep freezer to keep your catch. Our fish cleaner will bag and freeze your fish for a tip if you prefer.
  • Legally, I can take out up to six people on a trip, but it's not practical. If there are more than 4 anglers wanting to go out, we really need to get another captain in on the trip. I know other licensed captains that you will be happy with (no jerks with broken equipment).
