Fishing with Capt. Paul Miller

He is known for his congenial personality, and the cheerful attention he gives each customer. "Fishing is supposed to be fun, and I make sure we take care of that part first, every day" says Paul. Want to talk with him leading up to your trip? Call Paul at 228-219-7809, and note: All our captains call customers 2-3 days before each trip.

Fishing charters for anglers of any age — from beginners to experts are always welcome.

Book with Paul, and ask MGFC to accommodate your group. We can offer up to eight (8) additional boats, each day, year round … just let us know in advance, or by email when you place your order. 

A native Mississippi — born in Ocean Springs — Paul grew up fishing offshore, and in southern estuaries at a young age. His earliest memory is a family trip made to Dauphin Island where he caught his first fish and says it was an absolute joy. 

He began tournament fishing at 18, mostly offshore, and did well, but never lost a love for near shore fishing, and inshore salt marshes. He says "the biggest gratification in fishing (aside form the natural beauty of it all), is the simple fact that we get to bring home dinner, we eat what we catch." 

Paul says his dad, a costal environmental engineer, is the one he credits with giving him a great love for the great outdoors. "He took me with him on dive trips at a very young age, where we would check on the coastal reef program across Mississippi, I guess it's always been with me. I'm glad it has stayed with me." 

Other than fishing, Paul is an avid snorkeler and diver, and he enjoys nature in all forms — whether that's hiking in the Himalaya, snorkeling off the coast of Bali, or guiding fishing trips at the foot of the Mississippi River Delta — Captain Paul remains in awe, with gratitude for the world around us.

Venice, Louisiana offers some of the finest inshore fishing in the world. 

Capt. Paul targets Redfish, triple tail, trout, and snapper. This is a year round fishery. Conditions are almost always ideal. Says Paul, "offshore may be blowing, and boats can't go out, but we can take csutomers inshore more than ninety percent of the time." Fall months are particulary great, winter months can be rewarding, and everyone knows about the productive fishery down here in spring and summer.

When asked why you should choose a trip with Captain Paul, he says: "I promise 100% to provide you with a can do attitude, and cheerful outlook on each and every day. We're going out to catch fish, but first we're going out to make friends and have fun … if I take care of that first part, we'll make the second one happen because good mates make for good fish trips, and that helps us put them in the boat."

He’s always happy to share his experience and guidance. Book Capt. Paul online. Arrange a trip for up to four people on his 24-foot Blue Wave. Powered by a Suzuki outboard 300, equipped with the latest in Simrad electronics, and outfitted with the best Stratus reels and Tsunami rods — Paul offers guided trips for up to six hours in one of the most productive and naturally beautiful sport fisheries in North America.

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.
