Red fishing in Venice Louisiana

Shawn Lanier - 09/17/2015

September 16, 2015 report.


The big “BULL” Redfishing continues to be outstanding here in the waters around Venice, Louisiana. The action has been so good that the big Reds are fighting over our lures and tearing up the tackle. It is a lot of extra work on me, but that is ok, I am prepared. The Mississippi River stage has dropped to under three feet in New Orleans, so the water has cleared up considerably, which means you can see the Redfish trailing the hooked one. It has been exciting fishing.

On my latest trip I had Kyle from Destin, Florida and his friend, Keith from Texas, along with his son, Cole. We boated 66 Redfish weighing 15 to 29 lbs. Most were over 20 lbs. They said it was unreal how many big Redfish we had here around the passes off the Mississippi River. Keith said it was his best trip ever as far as hunting or fishing.

If the winds don’t pick up we should have an easy time finding these schools of big Redfish. Even with windy conditions we should do well. Give me a call to book your Fall or Winter fishing trip.
