Venice and Hopedale Fishing
Venice LA is the sport fishing capitol of the world for both inshore and offshore fishing. Well known for its world class speckled trout and redfish fishery, it not only has large numbers of both, but it also boasts many trophy sized speckled trout and bull redfish.
You can sight fish for slot sized redfish and monster jackfish in the shallow marsh ponds or go out to the oyster reefs and catch world class speckled trout and redfish on top-waters. All fishing is done from the boat either drift fishing or sight fishing in marsh ponds, over oyster reefs, or on the beach front.
The best months are from March until December for numbers of trout and redfish. The biggest factor in fishing these two areas will be the influx of freshwater from the Mississippi River. The less freshwater means the bite is on fire!!!! Hopedale and Breton Sound Area is a great place to catch large numbers of speckled trout and sight fish for redfish in the marsh or duck ponds. The marsh ponds for sight fishing redfish turn on in May until September. This area consists of large open bays with large oyster reefs throughout all of the bays and lakes. This is a great place for light tackle sight fishing or fly fishing.

Fish Calcasieu “Big Lake”
We fish the entire Calcasieu (Big Lake) estuary from the Calcasieu River, the Calcasieu Ship Channel, and the beach of the Gulf of Mexico. This lake is known for its world class size speckled and massive amounts of redfish. Calcasieu Lake is nationally known for its world class trophy sized speckled trout and redfish paradise.
This estuary is best from February through May for Trophy Speckled Trout. The best months for numbers of speckled trout and redfish are the months of June through the end of October are best. This area is mainly fished from the boat by drift fishing oyster reefs, slicks, mud boils, and working birds. Wade fishing is available, but this is for the true hardcore angler!!!!

Catch & Release
Yes the limits are more liberal in Louisiana, but we do not allow our guides to keep their limits of fish. If you do not want the guide to fish or put fish in the boat just let us know. We emphasize catch all you want and keep only what you need to eat. Catch and release is the standard policy on guides fishing. You decide if you want the guide to fish and if you want them to contribute to box. We are looking out for the future of the great fishery and making sure that our children and our grandchildren can tell stories of catching a hundred speckled trout a day and fifty redfish a day.
