Deep Sea & Offshore Fishing Charters in Venice, Florida

Deep sea or offshore fishing in Venice offers exciting action, catching Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, Sailfish and more! These are just a few options available to you on a light tackle guided fishing charter.

Our deep sea private fishing charters include bottom fishing for Red Grouper most of the year and from June  to December, we catch Gag Grouper. Red Snapper are caught from June to August. Hogfish, Lane Snapper and Gray Snapper or “grunts” are caught year round and are some of the best eating fish we have. Several other species of fish are caught bottom fishing and it not uncommon to catch 10-15 different types of fish in the same day.

What to Expect on Venice Offshore Fishing Charters

When we aren’t bottom fishing, we do what is called Trolling. When trolling, the boat never stops moving as we drag both artificial and live bait in an effort to catch Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, Tuna and occasionally a Sailfish. There is always lots of action and all these fish are great eating.

Near the beach, we fish for Tarpon or the ” Silver King”. This fish is highly prized by many fishermen, the waters are a prime Tarpon area from May to November along the beaches. The Venice area is not as well known as other areas but many of us feel it is the best with lots of fish and few anglers.

On all our fishing charters, all skill levels are welcome. We love having beginners of all ages and do our best to teach everyone the proper techniques to help them catch fish.

When we get back to the dock, we fillet your catch and can recommend some local restaurants that will cook your catch in a variety of ways, for a great price so be sure to ask us about it !
