When is the best time of year to go to Venice for reds?

Pretty much all year round they catch them. Probably April thru late October are the busiest. Get trout too. We go every year from Memorial Day on for a week. We want to catch trout. They are always catching reds then. Once you get on them it’s fairly boring catching the same size fish cast after cast. Usually on a popping cork. You can also catch a bunch of over sized ones. If you want a real fight hook a Jack.

Venice is a great place to go. Anyone who fishes needs to go there at least once.

Rent a house boat at Venice Marina. Sit on the deck at the bar. Drink a cold one and watch the offshore and inshore catch come in.

I don’t have any recommendations for inshore. We always take our own boats inshore. Venice Marina has a pretty good list in their website. It’s not typically hard for them to catch redfish. It’s so vast someone just coming there not knowing how and where to fish might have a issue catching them. Guides like them because they are pretty steady plus most that go inshore there seem to want reds not trout. Find a guide that will catch both and stay out a while. Some come in after a limit. They will be back to the dock before 10am. It’s pretty high cost there compared to other inshore locations. $850 a day is pretty common. They burn a little gas depending on where the fish are.

If you post on the Venice Marina Facebook you will get a bunch of recommendations. Probably more than you want…..lol.

VRBO for house boat rental.
