My dad and I were planning a fishing trip for this summer and we were between Alaska and Venice, LA. We decided on Alaska, but Venice is still on my list. Maybe we'll do Venice next year.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

pm me if and when you decide to come out this way to Venice...Let me know what you want to fish for and I can recommend some good reputable guides...Good luck in Alaska!! :thumbsup:

If I took pictures of what comes in at the dock next time I'm down there it would make a lot of people sick....with envy!! :thumbsup:

I've seen some awesome trips come in...22 black fin tuna, 7 yellow fin tuna-biggest 158lbs., 5 wahoo, 9 kings, 42 Red Snapper, 7 Amberjacks, 19 bull dolphin,....an ice chest of chicken dolphin and I forget what else-maybe some mangroves 10-13 lbs and a few grouper thrown in..... :bow: And If I remember right-they boated two sailfish on that trip also.....
THAT was an awesome trip!!!
The fish cleaning guy Mack "The Knife" ....I saw him make $1400 from just cleaning Speckled Trout at $0.25 a fish!!!! :eek: He was cleaning fish till well into the night!!
That was about 7 yrs ago, was a good year for trout, after the gill net bans took effect-really helped the fisheries!!! :thumbsup:

A lot of people fish their whole lives for speckled trout and never catch one 6 lbs....we got 'em in spades down in Venice, La. It's so remote-Lots of big fish....big lake (Lake Calcasieu )out by Lake Charles, La. has some big ones too. But I don't fish there much....

Dad brought one to the boat that day in May of this year when we caught all those big ones that was pushing 8-8.5 lbs. we just watched him swim away....the fish jumped right at the boat and threw the hook. :no:
Biggest speck I've seen yet up close-that fish was pushing 28-29 inches long!!!! Wish we'd a got that one in the boat-It was the maiden voyage for Dad's new boat.....that a been sweet to have landed that fish. :thumbsup:

That sounds like a great trip. Fishing is great on the Island right now. Just finished the Grand Isle Red Fish Rodeo for Labor Day Weekend. There was a 53 pounder brought in which was caught near Empire.

Way to go Clemaire..I like how you put it on the flounder!! We will be heading down to venice soon for a cast and blast on some teal and hopefully we will hit the flat fish right too!! got a spot were we wear them out. I lost one last year pushing 7 lbs. :eek: threw the bait at the surface about 10 ft. from da boat!!! :mad:
Swampbilly-you'll just have to book a trip down here one day with a guide....It will be well worth it I promise!! :thumbsup:

Allnighter-clemaire is in western La. were the limit is 15...everywhere else in the state it's 25 trout at least 12" long...no limit on big fish.
