The Fishing out of Venice is on fire!

We are putting our customers on huge Yellowfin Tuna as close as 20 miles out of the pass!

Several options for tuna fishing.  The humps are holding some very big yellowfin as well as blackfin and giant AJs.  On calmer days we are also finding large numbers of yellows at the floaters and drillships offshore.  This time of year live bait is hard to come by some bring plenty of chum and remember those kings make great bait.

The wahoo fishing is good at the shelf rigs and especially around the full and new moons.  I’m pulling Russell Lures, X-raps and Bombers.

Rig fishing will continue to very good for AJs, grouper and some nice cobia.

Plus the State Red Snapper season is open and there a plenty of big snapper in close.  Makes a great way to finish off the day after tuna fishing.

Don’t miss this incredible action.  Call today to book your trip!

A little bad weather came through last night. After the bad weather came through, the weather got fabulous. So that can only mean one thing for tomorrow, the fishing should be great! Wind report: there is NONE! We have plenty of live shrimp and can’t wait to see you here at Sweetwater, where we will do everything we can to help you get on the fish! Getting on them shouldn’t be too hard, the weather will be in your favor, so let’s see who the champs are out there. Come on down; we can’t wait to see everyone pulling up with full ice chest and huge smiles!
And don’t forget we are the second launch in Delacroix. We will help launch your boat, give as much advice on how to make your fishing trip the best it can possibly be, load you up with live bait and any tackle you desire, we provide our services for fish cleaning or you can use our fish cleaning tables for all the do-it-yourselfers, we can fuel you up with some of our non-ethanol gas and DO NOT FORGET to pick up a Sweetwater Shirt or Hoody. Our shirts and Hoody’s are $25 each, I would say that’s pretty cheap to represent the best marina around. We also have lodging and charters available (if you are interested, just give us a call at 504-342-2368).

CAPT. KERRY AUDIBERT-OUGHT TO BE FISHING CHARTERS, LLC.

GREAT DAY IN THE SOUND…. Had the pleasure of guiding Marty Maley, sons, Martin and William, and their friend Mike. We started out along the edges making a few stops as we were greeted by a chop bigger than we had wanted to see. Killed some time until it started to lay down. We crept out and straight to the battlefield, the further we went the calmer it got. Pulled up and soon as the baits hit the bottom it was fish ON! The bull reds went nuts for us at the first stop, caught our limit and turned loose a bunch. Moved around a few more stops looking for some heads and caught some at every stop. Only problem was there was more redfish at every stop and the heads couldn’t compete. Hit a few more spots and filled the box with heads, reds, a drum, couple trout and a lone flat fish. Headed back in around 11 am with a box slap full of meat and a bunch of tired and sore arms. Great day, great fun, and great memories with Marty and crew as usual! Ought To Be Fishing Charters located just outside of New Orleans in the most versatile and pristine estuary system on the entire Gulf Coast.
All fish were caught with 13 Fishing Green and Black Omen Rods teamed up with FINS WINDTAMER BRAID on live shrimp and hybrid flurrys under corks.
