Where to Stay in Venice, LA

We had the opportunity to go to Venice, LA to do some filming this year.  I made some calls and talked to many people who knew the area and had fished it for Bass, Redfish and Offshore species.  One name kept coming up, Anthony Randazzo.  I gave Anthony a call and I was certainly not dissapointed.  Anthony knows more about the Venice, LA fishing than anyone I could have hoped for.  He was generous with the fishing info and also was a guest star on Sweetwater. 

Paradise PLUS Guide Service is a sure bet for outdoor enthusiasts, from novice to expert, seeking fun filled coastal Louisiana fishing and hunting charters. Within one hour of downtown New Orleans awaits the very best of Louisiana's saltwater marshes, bayous and bays for a fishing adventure sure to satisfy.

What makes Paradise PLUS Lodge unique, is that it offers superb fishing year round. Nutrient rich estuaries bordering the Mississippi Delta are what feeds the variety of game fishes that can be found in great numbers throughout the area. 


Redfish can be caught literally every month of the year, while speckled trout are most common from March thru December. Trophy speckled trout are common in March, April, May, September, October and November. Bull Reds (those ranging from 12 to 35 pounds, and occasionally larger) are most common from February thru November, but can be encountered just about any month of the year. You'll stalk redfish and speckled trout in pristine shallow flats covered with marsh grass, near oyster reefs, along cane lined shores, on the sandy coastal beaches, next to granite boulder jetties, and around the many near shore oil and gas platforms.

If you are considering a trip to Venice, LA to experience some of this amazing fishing, definitely give Anthony a call.
