Fishing the rigs -- think Horizon Explorer

Father's Day Fishing

By Andy Dolich

Ugly ties, boring brunches, sweaters which Ray Ratto would, I'll go with a fishing trip to Venice. Not the Pacific Ocean in SoCal or the canals in Italy but the sportsman's paradise of Venice, Louisiana.

" The Gateway to the Gulf" is at the southern tip of the state a 90-minute drive from New Orleans. I've been lucky enough to have experienced world class fishing for giant yellowfin tuna, blue marlin, swordfish and many other fighting finny creatures the past several years.
Countless oil rigs span the horizon offering deep water structure and hold trophy fish year- round. These rigs provide a biosphere for migratory monsters which take refuge during their swims across the ocean.

Our array of rods
This past weekend a group of my Memphis Grizzlies buddies hooked into yellowfin tuna, red snapper, shark, bonito and redfish with a day of inshore fishing. Our captain, the perfectly named Hunter Caballero of Paradise Outfitters, is one of the best in the business. His 42-foot Renaissance Prowler is a pure fishing machine which flies through the water.
