We at The Venice Palms had a large corporate group come stay with us last week. We sent them fishing both inshore and offshore fishing. There first day out, we sent a group of 5 men fishing with Captain Josh on his 26' Glacier Bay. The tuna bite was not on that morning so they decided to go fish the rigs. Captain Josh took them to one of his favorite rigs, which sits in about 600 feet of water. Using live mullet for bait and 250lb. Power Pro Braided line, Brian O'Haire, who never caught a fish before this trip, hooked, fought, and landed an enormous amberjack. Captain Josh knew this amberjack was a contender for a state record. When they got back to the dock, this fine amberjack tipped the scales at 128 pounds, making it the second largest amberjack caught in the State of Louisiana, right below a 130 pounder. Brian, from Denver, Colorado, was thrilled! We told him that he can now confidently say that he is a fishermen. We also told him he has something else to add to his resume - # 2 State of Louisiana Record Amberjack! If you like action and fighting big fish, Venice is the fishing destination for you.
