My Son and I had the pleasure to stay at VFL from June 7-11th.  I just wanted to share with you it was the absolute best fishing experience we have ever had.  Every aspect of this trip far exceeded our expectations.  The lodge is extremely well taken care of and had plenty to offer.  We enjoyed some games of pool and the home theatre for movies was a great way to relax after a great day of fishing. The food…..Chefs Teddy and Sarah cooked absolutely amazing meals.  From the midafternoon appetizers that were served to the 5-star dinners.  It is quite obvious that those two cook with passion and love to please.  The food was so good, we felt guilty eating it and asked to do the dishes; not surprising, our offers to help were refused with a smile and more dessert!  Miss Kim-What a pleasure to wake up to a hot breakfast and kind words.  We were wondering if your cooking team ever sleeps as it seems they are going all the time. The fishing…..This trip may have ruined me for all future fishing trips; the fishing was that good.  Captain Neal put us on great fishing all 3 days and we had a blast catching them.  Neal is a true professional and offers so much more than just putting us on the fish.  His knowledge of the area and environment were top notch.  His truck and boat were well taken care of and you can tell he takes pride in his equipment.  After a long day of fishing, my Son and I were exhausted.  Not Neal, he cleaned our fish with a smile and packaged/froze them for us to take back home with us.  You would be very hard pressed to find a better guide than Captain Neal.  He is truly a asset to the lodge and just a great guy to be around. I honestly could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay at VFL and we plan to make many yearly trips back in the future (if your team will have us..ha).  Thank you for providing such an outstanding experience for us to enjoy.  Hope to meet you in the future.

I went with a friend to a guided trip for redfish in Louisiana. They highly recommended Venice Fishing Lodge for the once in a life time experience.  The lodge is very nice and clean with everything from the rooms to the kitchen. The guides are fantastic! They have extremely great knowledge of the delta fishing area and the fishing is absolutely INCREDIBLE! Again, I highly recommend the Venice Fishing Lodge and will be back.

This was my first redfish trip and definitely not my last at Venice Fishing Lodge! Captain Billy was absolutely incredible! Everything here is definitely top notch. The food was amazing and the lodge itself felt like home! All the guides were super friendly and the camaraderie between everyone at the lodge was great! Loved hanging out, playing a few games of pool, and sharing fishing stories with all the other guests. Hands down the trip of a lifetime. Can't wait to come back and wake up to "it's breakfast time fishing time."

Great guides, awesome food, super accommodations, and fishing wasn't fishing....it was catching!  Nice bulls, nice eating fish, a super three day trip and we are already planning for next year. My two sons said "we're in... just get er done!"
