Most of us love vacations, even if it’s just a weekend getaway. They are relaxing and offer us a chance to replenish our souls. However, most of us have been on a trip that we weren’t quite prepared for, such as going on a mountain hike and it began to snow, or heading to the beach and it began to rain. Even though we probably still enjoyed ourselves, it most definitely put a damper on the situation. If you have children who get cold more easily than adults, however, it could be all they remember.

Louisiana Bluewater Charter Company offers the best guided fishing trips in Venice, LA. We have years of experience fishing these waters for trophy fish, from swordfish and yellowfin tuna to blue marlins and sailfish. No matter what you are fishing for, we can help. Our expert fishing guides will help you every step of the way, knowing the waters like the back of their hands. Below, you’ll find our suggestions to ensure your charter trip is about the fish and not the water! Contact us with any questions you may have, and we’ll see you on our next Louisiana fishing charter today!
