Fishing Charters

Captain Boola’s Reel Tite Fishing Guide Service specializes in fishing charters in the bays, bayous, and marshes of Venice, Louisiana.

On a normal fishing trip we leave the dock at safe light traveling the delta where you see plenty of wildlife and wetlands on the way to the fishing hole. Once we arrive at the fishing hole we will target speckled trout, which with the right conditions, it is common to catch 75-100+ trout with the limit being 25 per angler. Then Captain Boola, Venice Louisiana Fishingbeing satisfied with our catch of trout we would continue to catch red fish, which with the right conditions, it is common to catch 20-50+ reds with the limit being 5 per angler.

Whether you just want to catch trout or red fish, we will do our very best to accommodate you. Once you are satisfied with your day of fishing we will then head back to the marina where Venice Marina offers fish cleaning, vacuum sealing and shipping for your catch.

I personally guarantee you will have a great time!
