BACKWATER FISHING IN VENICE, LA

Backwater fishing in Venice, LA offers some of the most incredible Redfish, Speckled Trout and Flounder fishing around.

Backwater fishing in Venice, LA, provides you with the opportunity to fish the flats, bayous, ponds, and through the numerous types of vegetation that surround our Delta. To fish these types of areas, we take our bay boats that have very shallow drafts to get into the needed areas. Most fish are caught fishing with artificial or natural bait. The most abundant species of backwater fish are the Red Fish.  They are very aggressive and help make the fishing experience a lasting one.

The Delta and Coast lines, which are mostly Roseau Cane and Marsh surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, are home to an enormous population of Red Fish (drum).

They come in all sizes depending on the area you fish, from Bull Reds which weigh in around 15 pounds all the way down to the smaller 16-20 inch reds which are excellent table fare. Not only are they great eating but they put up a fight that most will truly enjoy. In these same fishing locations, you will also find Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Drum Fish. Every once in a while, the occasional Green Trout shows up as well. All months are excellent for inshore fishing in Venice,LA. The inlets, bays, and ponds that we fish are usually always calm, and they are protected from windy days which often times ensures a comfortable day on the water.
