Fishing Tips

The nutrient-driven Mississippi River helps create one of the most exciting fisheries in the entire world.  With all of the oil rigs and deep water located just miles offshore, anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish on a regular basis.  Redfish get a lot of attention here as you can catch them by the dozens and maybe even hundreds if you hit it right.  Trout are also here in good numbers inshore and you can go offshore and fish for so many different species of fish.  The fishing is truly unbelievable compared to most other destinations.  To learn more about this area, visit our Venice, LA fishing tips page.
