Venice La. fishing questions
I will be in Venice fishing next month for reds, my first time fishing there. I have been red fishing out of Jean Lafitte before and done fair amount of fishing for reds before, so techniques and lures I'm comfortable with.
Can anyone give me some general info on the Venice area such as extremes of tide change, how close I gotta watch the tide periods to not end up on a mud flat for 12 hours?
Does the area have productive canals off the main channel that are worth fishing, or should I concentrate on the larger bays and bodies of water?
Are the channels well marked and deep enough to run without tearing off a lower unit?
Anyone know any specific areas to try or to avoid?
I will not be using a guide this trip and rely on whatever published maps I can find to navigate. Fishing equipment is a 20' bay boat with 150 that draws about 16"-18" .
Any general experiences and info on what to do/not to do would be appreciated.
