    Just heading back from our yearly Venice trip w/ full coolers. We did 2 days offshore and 1 inshore. We boated 6 yellowfin biggest 142#, close to 40 blackfin, a nice wahoo, over 100 reds and some other misc. I've got some awesome Captains down there, if anyone wants some info, just pm me IMG_0134.jpg IMG_0026.jpg IMG_0013.jpg

    Trapper and I and some others did it last year and it is some of the wildest fishing going. Well worth the trip and reasonable as big game fishing goes. 4-500 a day apiece plus a ten dollar license and place to stay. If he has a good skipper with openings it is a great trip and worth doing at least once.

    Y'all did good! I'll bet pulling in all those tuna wore your butts out! Please PM me your Captain's contact information, I'd like to take my sons on a trip like that.

    I'll just post the info here instead of replying to all the pm's. We have gone out w/ Capt Donnie Jackson, Tails Up Offshore Charters a couple of times and always crushed it. He is an owner/operator and will work his but off to get you on the fish. His # and website are (504) 313-8339. http://tailsupoffshore.com/contact/. Winter is when the big yellowfin and wahoo are in but weather is hit or miss. We usually go out 45 miles to a dome and freeline. Once the waters warm up, you have to go farther out but catch everything from marlin to mahi mahi but the tuna are generally smaller. Offshore will generally run around $2200 for the day but with 6 guys it will come out at $400-500 per depending on fuel.
    We go after reds inshore w/ Capt James Taylor. His # and website is +1 (225) 229-4330 http://www.taylorsguideservice.com/. Jt also guides ducks on the lower miss. Those bull reds put up a hella of a fight. He runs $250 per person and everything is included on that. We stay at yellow cotton bayside but there are a few lodging options out there. If you give them a shout, let em know Scott sent you and they will hook it up!

    That was a fine trip. I've been down for inshore also and just crushed the trout and reds. I would suggest having an option to fish inshore if you can't get offshore due to weather.

    My Brother inlaw is a charter captain out of Lafitte La. The red fish fishing alone is worth the trip down there. This past winter the fishing never slowed down in the bayou..
