Default Venice offshore

Headed down river today to find calm seas and pretty water, freakin Mississippi river is GREEN!!! First off those running SW pass be careful there is a log sticking in the bottom with only 8-12" exposed about 1/2 way between Joseph's bayou n the end of the pass, it would ruin your day to hit this monster . Started the day in about 100' of water catching mangroves and ended up in 250-275' of water catching red snapper, mangroves, a few cobia just shy of the legal size, saw some donkey AJ's come up when we were chumming but didn't catchem. Boat next to us at last rig was catching some big blackfin tuna , we hooked up twice but didn't get em to the boat . We are really getting into this Offshore fishing and learning more and more as we go . It's a nice change from trout fishing but I am still partial to watching a trout get stupid with a TW bait!! Maybe I need to catch some tuna on TW!!!!!

Sounds like you made the run all the way down the river. There are a lot of passes you can run that will save you a lot of time and fuel. Looks like you went to the west from southwest pass or are those the domino rigs to the South . If you are not too familiar with these waters I will be more than happy to help you learn.

Nice catch and pictures.

143 in a bay boat is asking for trouble. Although many have and will do it there is SOooooo much that can happen and 20 miles offshore is not a place to start yelling for help. You pushed the envelope on that trip. What you caught you could have done closer and may have even put better fish in the boat. Your trolling motor would not even get you to the platform in the courant if something went wrong. I hope you had a working VHF on the boat.

I offer to share knowledge because I do not wish to see people getting into trouble thinking they can just get on the water and go fishing.. I spent 37 years as a FF and 12 of those years involved the fire rescue boat. People are my business not bodies.

I came down here in 2004 with a 100 ton masters and fished waters off Montauk but I got hold of Captain John on the Cougar and Captain Eddie Burger to deckhand so I could learn the waters and how things are done down here. 2012 and 70 years old and I am still learning.

Stay Safe!
