Big Fish Small Numbers

It is that time of year when the winds blow, the water starts getting stained, and the big fish start heading out.  We have had very few good weather days this month but here is one.  We had limited shots on big fish but we were still able to make some eat.

Recent Biloxi Marsh Action


Here are some pics from last two weeks. We had good, bad, and ugly weather.  We did what we could to make the most out of the bad and ugly and it turned out to be pretty good.  You gotta love topwater no matter what size the fish are.


Capt Aaron Gelfand

Captain Aaron Gelfand was born and raised in Louisiana where he grew up fishing the local waters from the time he could stand on his own two feet. Aaron possesses an extreme passion for wetland conservation efforts, and his knowledge of the wetlands of Louisiana and the local ecosystem is extensive.  A fishing experience with Captain Aaron not only allows you the opportunity to catch the trophy fish of a lifetime, but also the chance to learn about the most delicate, precious and diverse resources in Louisiana.  Aaron is also the weighmaster of the oldest bass fishing rodeo in the nation, and he is a competitive fisherman who has placed in and even won multiple tournaments.  A fishing trip with Captain Aaron is completely turn-key and all inclusive…all you need to do is show up! Once you step onboard his boat, it won’t take long for you to realize that you are about to embark on the fishing adventure of a lifetime!

Capt Michael Pittman


Michael has nearly five years of fishing experience out of Venice serving in all capacities from deck hand to Captain for Fish Venice Charters, a position he assumed in April 2012.  Since then, he has led hundreds of charters, along the way setting records for the third largest Yellow Fin Tuna in the Gulf of Mexico and the largest Snowy Grouper on record in the state of Louisiana.  He is licensed by the US Coast Guard and certified OUPV 6-pack.  Born and raised in and around southern Louisiana, Michael has quickly established his position as one of Venice’s most successful fishing captains.

Keeping it Interesting

We had to make the most of this windy partly cloudy day.  When the sun popped out we looked for redfish and when the clouds blocked the sun we blind casted for trout.  We were successful at both but would of rather spot fished all day.  Still a pretty entertaining day though.

Mike is Back for Seconds

After coming in during early December and just spanking them, Mike literally couldn’t wait to come back. Day one was bad weather, we had some shots but not many. Day 2 was a totally different story. Within about 2 minutes of turning the engine off we spot a big fish laid up on a bar. Mike made one cast short then the second perfect. Made the day in about a total of 20 min. But the rest of the day was also good, after the 20 lber we actually got into big schools of fish 10-12 range. Day 3 weather was horrible! 30 mph wind and zero sun. Luckily for us I figured the trout bite would be on with the warm water and it certainly was. We spent the whole nasty day catching little 2-3 lb trout on topwater. That is what I call making lemonade.
