VENICE, La. - With its vast network of
offshore oil rigs, extreme depths and a nutrient driven
Mississippi River, Venice, Louisiana has been called one
the most prolific fisheries in the world. At the southern
most extreme point of the lower Mississippi River Delta,
it is often compared to some of the world's most famous
fishing charter destinations such as Hawaii, the Bahamas,
and Costa Rica.
But there was a time
not too long ago when Venice was seen as just
another sleepy little port in lower Plaquemines
Parish. It was largely unheard of, except for
employees in the offshore oil and gas industry
and a handful of big-game anglers who owned fishing
camps downriver. There seemed to be little need
for a fishing charter service in Venice.
Today, the crew boats, supply ships and helicopters still come and go frequently. But Venice has seen a huge increase in the number of vessels with recreational applications.
New marinas and lodges have sprung up along State Hwy.
1, and thousands of bay boats and tournament-rigged
sportfishing vessels have found new homes here at the
mouth of the Mississippi River. This rich area is perfect
for tuna fishing charters, dolphin fishing, wahoo fishing, kite
fishing and best of all, the elusive Marlin.
After spending years in the marsh interiors and coastal
areas of southeast Louisiana, Capt. Trey Pique discovered
Venice. Already an accomplished speckled trout angler,
Pique wanted to master offshore fishing. He was soon
learning from some of the best in the country. From
the beginning, it was the diversity of this area that
impressed Pique the most.

"Whatever kind of fishing you want to do, you
can find it in here," Pique said. "From speckled trout to redfish, to snapper, tuna fish and blue marlin.
You don't have to look any further than Venice."

afternoon of dolphin or wahoo fishing, the excitement
of blue marlin fishing or the more adventurous lump
or offshore oil rig fishing, look to Voodoo Fishing Charters.
