Note: Inshore trips are booked independently of offshore fishing charters. 

Which means if offshore is cancelled due to high seas, that will not necessarily cause your inshore trip to be called off. We rarely have to cancel inshore fishing trips due to weather conditions. 

We're one of the largest charter companies operating in South Louisiana, and we also offer inshore fishing charter trips which are organized through MGFC's partners — a vetted and trusted group, of local guides, who will help you have the best days on the water. 

Our inshore charters will fish waters of South Louisiana's Plaquemines Parish.

Captain Paul Miller and Scott McCrossen, of MGFC, will be your initial points of contact, and your captains will call you a 1-2 days in advance of your trip to discuss plans and weather conditions. 

The beauty of fishing inshore and nearshore shallow water out of Venice, LA is in the variety, and the ability to fish most days thanks to easy access on both sides of the Mississippi River. 

What to Expect

Venice is home of some of the world's best inshore fishing, and it is a destination for anglers of all skill levels.

Situated at the resourceful end of the Mississippi River Delta, and surrounded by the bountiful waters of Gulf of Mexico —  this landscape of wild marsh, and estuarine waters provides world class fishing opportunities. Get in on some sure-fire, always on, straight-out-fun times, and book an action-packed guided inshore trip with MGFC. 

Many of our customers book inshore trips on the days before or after offshore charters. There's plenty to do and see, and plenty of fish to catch from one of our custom-built bay boats.

What we Catch

Redfish, redfish, redfish! with many Bull Redfish, too.

Of course there is variety. We also target speckled trout, lane snapper, sheepshead, black drum, flounder, cobia and even sharks. And the fishing here is a year-round experience. Mild temperatures in the winter months yield many fishable days, and the ability to fish both sides of the river affords us an opportunity to provide you with charter trips no matter what the conditions (on almost every day).

Springtime is for quality of quantity, and for some of those trophy trout + the redfish are always about, too.

Summer is mostly for redfish, and the later we get in the summer months, the larger those fish become.

In the fall we see a variety of species, and that's when some of the biggest bull reds lurk about.

Winter also is excellent for redfish, and being at the southern tip of the state means we're always warmer than anywhere else on the Louisiana or Mississippi coasts.

On the Day of the Trip

Trips usually last about six hours, and we generally depart early in the mornings to take full advantage of the day. We provide you with all the tackle you'll need, everything is on the boat — just bring whatever you want to eat and drink, and we'll stow it on board for you. 

Fuel average is 30 gallons per day, and you'll pay the price at the dock. Live bait average is $80, and of course tips are greatly appreciated by our captains at the end of your trips — let 'em, and us know how they did.

Secure your inshore charter trips with a deposit, while booking online. $312 paid at the time of booking, balance + fuel, bait, and tipi is paid directly to your captain on the day of the charters (cash or charge accepted).

It's 3 passengers per boat for $1000; 4 passengers for $1200.

Fuel, live bait, and gratuity are additional. 

Market rates on fuel and bait, tips average 20% of the charter fee.

We look forward to having you fish with us at MGFC.
