Just got back from Venice. Fished on Super Strike Charters, Damon McNight. Caught 2 Yellowfin (100lb, 80lb) as well as 2 Kings and one shark on day one. Also broke off a 200 Plus pound Yellowfin at the boat after a 62 minute fight. Day 2 we got blown out for offshore. We fished inshore for Redfish and landed 19 keepers with 10 throwbacks. Captain Chris (http://www.riversendoutfitters.com/About.html) is a great inshore guide. We stayed at his house and were treated well. My recommendation is Damon offshore and Chris inshore. Good luck.

We are going in April - I will let you know.
That's probably when we're going. Two of us will drive to Jacksonville and pick up a buddy and then head to Venice. I do know the guides for in shore are around $650.00 for three and the oil rig trip is over $1250.00 for up to 4.

Great boat, good lodge with a private room for $50/night. I have fished with him on two trips and will go back in the Fall.

I would caution that the Fall is usually a better time than dealing with Spring flooding.
