I have been fishing many places in my life – all over the country. When it comes to sheer greatness, I would probably pick Venice Louisiana as my number one pick. It is just so vast. You can fish for trout, flounder, tuna, jackfish, shark, snapper, bass, ling, and of course redfish. Venice calls itself the capital of red fishing, and I would have to agree. You can catch bull reds until literally, you cannot lift the rod. And then go fish near shoreline cover and catch a bunch of keepers for dinner. We stay at Venice Fishing Lodge, and if you’ve never been there, you have to try it – great atmosphere, great food and great guides. All in all, if you have three days to fish anywhere in the country Venice would be a good place to try!
