Captain Cade takes pride in providing the best Venice, Louisiana inshore fishing charter experience ever. He is a competitive Bass fishermen who fell in love with the waters in Venice. With over 20 years experience I have the knowledge and know how to put my customers on fish day after day and I strive to make your fishing trip the experience of a lifetime.

I approach the guiding business just like a tournament, with intensity and determination. The only thing things that matters to me are the safety of me and my customers and the satisfaction of the services provided. I fish out of a 24-foot Skeeter Bay Boat powered by a Yamaha 250 four stroke. This combination of boat and motor provides a safe and comfortable ride to make your Venice inshore fishing charter the best ever.

Your day will start out at safe light traveling the Mighty Mississippi River and continue down a maze of canals and passes. Your day ends when you get ready or we catch our limits. I don't have a predetermined time to come in because I love what I do and will stay out as long as it takes. In other words when you pay for a day of fishing you get a FULL day fishing.

Everything you need is supplied except food, drink and live bait. If you want to bring your favorite pole or lure you are more than welcome to do so or you can choose to use one of the high-quality rod and reels provided.

We cater to women, children, and first timers, as well as the experienced fisherman. We really enjoy watching a child's first fish, or a lady hook up with a big ole Redfish. Your day will start at safelight traveling down the endless bayous and passes and end when your party wants to come in (or weather runs us off) which ever comes first. We take pride in catching fish and will stay out as long as it takes to satisfy our customers. In other words when you pay for an all day trip you get an all day trip.

If you are a Bass fisherman who thought that bass are the only sport-fish there is (as I once did) you owe it to yourself to come catch a Redfish. The best way to describe a Redfish is that it is a bass on steroids. Given an opportunity, a 6-pound Redfish would drown a 6-pound Bass. So if you want some reel-screaming action give us a call and see for your self.
