Gulf States Saltwater

"Home to the World's Best Saltwater Fishing in the Continental United States "

We are based in Venice, Louisiana, all the way down in southern Plaquemines Parish, nestled deep in the heart of the Mississippi River Delta. We offer a wide range of OFFSHORE FISHING PACKAGES; from 12 hour day trips to 24 hour overnight trips to the Canyon, trolling, chunking or live baiting, rig and wreck fishing or combinations of all four styles. We cater to every need of the most avid offshore fisherman and fly fisherman; Trolling the rip for billfish, wahoo, dolphin and tuna is our main dish, and we can serve it up red hot tobasco style on any one of our fast and comfortable twin diesel sport-fishing yachts, open "go fast" center consoles or cat hulls.
