FISH CLEANING INSHORE: The easiest way to handle fishing cleaning is for you and/or your guide to drop them off at the Venice Marina fishing cleaning station and fill out the required info and make sure you get a copy of the gold ticket. This way you can pay and pick up your fish. If you need the fish cleaning cost added to your final bill, please let Dana or Chris know and we will take care of it.
