How is the lodging situation with the Grainer family? I want to take my wife as well but don't want to be in a lodge with 20 other guys and not have a private bathroom for her. I have been twice but had mixed results with the same guide as a result am looking for another guide myself. Fishing can be awesome there if with a good guide.
We didn't lodge down in Venice right at the marina. We stayed up the road in a motel as I recall both times.
But, the Granier family, or another like the name give to you by Texan Till I Die. should be a starting point. This way, at least you have a bit of info on the guide.
My brother first used Granier with a group of businessmen, sort of like a fishing junket, so the Graniers have some corporate business, I guess, and that speaks well for them.
