Captain Boola and Captain Rock.
The Venice area has the best inshore fishing anywhere in the US. 100 reds a day is common. Trout are off the chain also.
Captain Eddie owns fish Venice charters and he is the best down there. The inshore fishing down there is best in the country. Not only can you keep keep 5 and 15 trout per person you can expect to catch that plus more. There are a couple guides that offer red snapper options onto your inshore trip for a reasonable cost in the summer. You can literally catch 10-15 pound snapper 2 miles out the out of their river in a bay boat! My personally favorite is smashing a limit of ducks in the morning followed By trout and reds in the evening durnjnb December and January!!!!
