The inshore fishing in the Venice area is good for a variety of different fish. Some of the popular fish to catch inshore are snook, redfish, sea trout and tarpon. Snook probably get the most attention here among anglers that are fishing inshore, however, there are so many more fish that you can catch here. Some of the other fish that you may catch inshore are sheepshead, ladyfish, pompano and jack crevalle. The tides play a huge role in whether or not you will catch fish inshore. Moving water is key for most species of fish and the slack tide usually provides the worst fishing conditions for most fish.
