Venice Fishing Charters

Venice Fishing Charters

Since 2001, Southern Way Charters has been offering the best outdoor experiences in the Gulf South. Starting as a Chandeleur Islands charter operation, we now offer a wide range of outdoor adventures including light tackle fishing charters inshore and near shore fishing trips, offshore fishing, fly fishing trips and waterfowl hunting. From our home port in Gulfport, Mississippi we have expanded to Venice and Hopedale, Louisiana and to our remote dock location in the world famous Louisiana Biloxi Marsh offering luxurious accommodations, cuisine and Southern hospitality in all these locations.

Our Gulfport location, in the recently built and modern Bert Jones Yacht Harbor, is the home port of the 72’ Southern Way and 54’ Southern Cross. These well maintained and comfortable vessels take our clients to the Chandeleur Islands, a group of barrier islands off Mississippi/ Louisiana coast. The “Islands” provide some of the best light tackle fishing and fly fishing options for redfish and speckled trout (tarpon frequent the area also in July and August). Our vessels serve as motherships, providing comfortable quarters, delicious southern style meals and experienced captains and crews to provide for a safe and successful adventure. The Southern Cross also runs half day, full day and overnite Chandeleur Islands fishing trips. We also provide overnight bottom fishing charters and trolling fishing trips for spanish & king mackerel, cobia, redfish and blacktip shark around the Mississippi barrier islands during this period. In the winter months, after the end of the Chandeleur season, our vessels move to a remote location in the Louisiana Biloxi Marsh and provide accommodations for our Louisiana fly fishing trips, Louisiana light tackle fishing and waterfowl hunting trips.

We have recently added the SWC Sportsmans Lodge (formerly known as the Venice Sportsmans Lodge) to our fleet. The SWC Sportsmans Lodge is a 110 foot luxury barge with over 5,000 square feet of accommodations. The SWC Sportsmans Lodge is located in Venice, Louisiana in the spring, summer and early fall months. We run the most productive Venice fishing charters around! Venice is a world class fishing mecca offering the best in offshore fishing trip opportunities. We also provide Venice light tackle inshore fishing and Venice near shore charter fishing opportunities. All of this is delivered with a level of comfort and luxury usually found only in luxury hotels. In the late fall and winter months the SWC Sportsmans Lodge is moved to Hopedale, Louisiana near the 210,000 acre Biloxi Marsh where the emphasis changes to Hopedale fly fishing trips for trophy redfish.

At Southern Way Charters our goal is to offer the finest outdoor experience by providing the best equipment, professional and experienced crews and captains and the best accommodations and cuisine in the Gulf South. Owned and managed by outdoorsmen, we focus on personalized service to the discriminating sportsman. That’s what sets us apart from others and is the key to our success.
