Oil Rigs Fishing in Venice, Louisiana

On a Charter Fishing Trip with Captain Brett Ryan

Locals know it, and fishermen travel from all over the world to fish the many oil rigs located just off the coast of Venice, Louisiana. Off the coast of Louisiana, there are over 3,700 rigs, and each one is a great place for a day of fishing in the gulf, as these rigs attract a variety of fish species.

There are many breeds of fish that are attracted to these structures, including:

  • Red Snapper
  • Mangrove Snapper
  • Lane or Beeline Snapper
  • Grouper
  • Amberjack
  • Cobia
  • Wahoo
  • Kingfish
  • And many others

The oil rigs act as giant manmade reefs out many miles off the Louisiana coast, and create a great habitat for small baitfish. This in turn attracts larger species of fish – the tasty ones that we are after! The rigs in shallower waters may sometimes produce a quick limit, while other times it may be better to target rigs in deeper waters, over fifty miles of the coast, when looking for larger fish.
