"Captain Chris did a phenomenal job of putting us on the fish. On a 20 mile per hour wind day after a cold front. We could not have asked for a better time and combined with Dana, these folks run a top notch biz. We look forward to fishing again with them next year."

– Scott F.

"Captain Chris is the man. He knows the area like no one other and always makes sure you have a great time. Cant wish to fish with him again (not to mention his cooking!)."

Captain Kyle Gray

Captain Kyle Gray

I’m a local captain and I was born and raised in the area.  I have fished the waters of the Mississippi Delta all my life. Just a 90-minute drive from the city of New Orleans and it's a whole new world south of the city. Venice, Louisiana is literally at the end of Highway 23 and boasts some of the best offshore fishing for yellowfin tuna, marlin, sailfish, wahoo and snapper.

I have been fishing in Venice as both a mate and captain since 2009. I have fished these waters all my life and have extensive knowledge of the area and the fishery.


Captain Kyle is the man! I've fished with a lot of guides and this guy knows his stuff. He keeps his boat and gear in great shape and he knows fishing! He works hard and if anyone can find the fish he can!
