    Venice 6-2-14 & 6-3-14

    Had a great time in Venice earlier this week. The fishing wasn't as good as it should have been, but still fun none the less. They have had a ton of rain and it rained on us both days we fished. We stayed at Venice Fishing Lodge (Venice Fishing Lodge) and I highly recommend it. Billy Nicholas is the owner and he runs a pretty bad ass operation. Billy was actually my guide for both days and I cant say enough about him. We were on the water at about 6 am and didn't get off until after 4 pm the first day and stayed past 5 pm the second day. To me there is nothing better than a guide that treats it like a day on the water with his buddies instead of a job and that is just what Billy does.

    There were 6 of us total and the first day we all bay fished and the second day 2 of us bay fished and the rest went offshore. Limit is 5 per person on reds. We only used artificial when bay fishing. First day: one boat had 13 and second boat had 15. Second day I think we caught something like 10 (with a 40"er) and the offshore boat brought in 2 tuna. Like I said the fishing wasn't great, but I sure would like to go back when the fishing is on.
