I've traveled all over the globe and my favorite fishing and diving place for the last 20 years has been Venice. I don't know any other place that you can fish and consistently catch fish like in the Mississippi Delta area.
Here you can fish year round, a great place to shoot ducks, geese, rabbits, wild hogs and even deer. You can fish for bass, red fish, speckled trout, tuna, marlin, dolphin and you never know what you might see on your way out. It's common to see Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Mola Mola, Turtles and Sperm Whales.
Property was kept very clean. Everything was as pictured on the site. Beautiful wood with all stainless appliances. Beer wine coolers. Six man bar. Washer dryer. Industrial ice machine and freezer with fish cleaning station. And you can't be the location being right in the marina! Can't wait to be back fishing in Venice! We will definitely be using this houseboat again. Better than some time share places I've stayed! Thanks for hosting us!!
This house is a great choice for fishing out of Venice. The property is convenient and full of wonderful amenities. The cleaning station and ice machine were the deciding factors for us, but we were very pleased with the living arrangements. Spacious and well-maintained, this is perfect for the yearly fishing trip!
Pictures are a very accurate depiction of the facilities. Very clean, well maintained, well appointed houseboat. There were seven of us and we never felt crowded. Three recliners were fantastic! Ice machine was a huge bonus for fishing. Had everything you needed for a perfect stay! Very highly recommend this houseboat!
If you like your saltwater rimmed by white sand beaches, palm trees, and tiki bars, this is not the place for you. However, if you live to hunt and fish, and yearn to do it 24/7/365, then this tiny community at the mouth of the Mississippi River beckons.
Despite its infamy as the epicenter of both Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Venice remains arguably the greatest place in North America to fish and hunt waterfowl.
In 2011, Bassmaster Classic competitors ran down the Mississippi from New Orleans to Venice—more than two hours by boat—to fill their livewells with largemouths. However, it’s world-class redfish and speckled trout fishing that draw the recreational fishermen. You will catch fish here every day that you hit the water, and you can’t say that about very many other places in the country.
If you get bored in the marshes, big-game fishing opportunities—from marlin to tuna, sailfish to swords—are plentiful around the offshore gas and oil rigs.
September marks the beginning of teal season in this waterfowler’s paradise, with more than 14 percent of the country’s wetlands located in this region of southern Louisiana.
