Our lodge is planted where the vast deltas of the Mississippi River blend with the salty waters of the Gulf of Mexico making Venice one of the best fisheries in the entire world. Venice is located on the final leg of the Mississippi River, virtually at the end of Hwy 23.

That’s right where the road ends and meets the waters that’s where we are which in turn because the Mississippi River dumps a tremendous amount of water and nutrition into the Delta area of Venice, creating one of the most prolific areas to fish in the world, with many species available.

That being said Venice without a doubt is the number one destination for trophy size Reds along with “slot” reds that are the smaller size reds and this is what Capt. Mike, his sons and his other captains specialize in. Year round action, that’s right YEAR ROUND Redfish are abundant in the marsh areas of Venice.
