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. Venice, LA is a place like no other! We catch Redfish year-round, and are second to none with respect to our fishing action… including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and more! Currently, our limits are 5 Redfish (16″-27″) & 25 Trout (12″ and up) per angler.

Whether you just want to catch and release or just want to fill the cooler, 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!

My Fishing Gear:

We will fish out of a new MAJEK 25+ Xtreme bay boat, powered by a 300 four stroke Yamaha.

The Majek Xtreme is a sleek, low sided, fast tournament style bay boat. It’s one of the shallowest drafting V-hull boats on the market today.

The versatility of the Majek Xtreme is one of its most unique characteristics. It’s perfect for fishing and skiing in fresh water lakes but it’s also great for running in shallower salt water bays.

“The Majek 25 is by far the BEST bay-boat I’ve ever owned or fished from!”

It is equipped with a 112 MinnKota iPilot trolling motor so we can quietly approach schools of Redfish.

Additional equipment:

Lowerance GPS; Dual 8′ blade Powerpole hydraulic anchors make this boat perfect for the fishing here in Venice.

I provide the following:

  • Professional LOCAL and Licensed Captain
  • Top Quality Fishing Rods and Reels
  • All Fishing Tackle
  • Dead bait if needed
  • Ice and Ice chest to store drinks and fish on the boat
  • Fuel
* Venice Marina offers fish cleaning, vacuum sealing, and shipping.

You Must Have:

A valid Louisiana fishing license (non-residents need a ***Charter Passenger License (3 day) fishing license) that you may obtain online before your trip at An authorization number for immediate use will be provided and licenses can also be printed out.

Things I recommend you bring:

  • Rain Suits and/or Light Jacket
  • Sunglasses (polarized will help enhance your sight casting)
  • Sunblock
  • Hat
  • Food and drinks (beer is ok if you choose to bring it along)
  • Ice chest (To transport your cleaned fish back home)
