Venice, Louisiana is a true sportsman’s paradise – abundant in species, quantity and sheer size of the most sought-out game fish in the world. This mecca of sportfishing is the best in the nation and most of it is untouched.

Your Expert Guide On This Memorable Trip Is Capt. Brent Ballay
A 21-year veteran charter captain and duck hunting guide, Brent has a lifetime of experience fishing all over the Gulf of Mexico. He’s fished the Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) tournaments for eight years, the Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) for six, and too many more to mention.

I’ve grown up on the bayous of Venice, Louisiana, fishing and hunting this vast paradise my whole life. This has been my backyard for as long as I can remember. And I have the honey holes to prove it!- Captain Brent Ballay, Owner of Cast N Blast Venice

Brent competes in the Redfish Tour, Professional Lure Division, as captain of the Blue Wave boat team. And, with his brother, Brandon, has appeared on over 50 television shows, and has written, and been the subject of, hundreds of articles about hunting and fishing.

Brent uses the latest equipment and works hard to make sure that every customer leaves happy. Customers keep coming back year after year to fish and hunt with him.

About Cast N Blast Venice

We are family-owned and operated and always have been. Brent’s parents, Dave and Debbie Ballay, founded Venice Marina over 25 years ago. And the Ballay family has promoted hunting and fishing in this area ever since.

We specialize in shallow-water, inshore fishing and offshore, bluewater species in and around the Mississippi River delta. Species include: redfish, speckled trout, flounder, tuna, tarpon, tripletail, dolphin, kings, and cobia.

You’ll meet your captain at your own private dock. You won’t have to wait in line for bait, boat or fuel. Our boats stay in the water and we live on the water in Venice Marina. Our customers appreciate the convenience. Everything is ready to go.

You’ll love it here like the Ballays do. The hunting is great, incredible fishing,

I can’t explain the feeling when you are out on a flat, looking across the water and there’s a school of reds feeding - just waiting to take a boat ride on ice.

We have fished all over the country and truthfully there is no place like home. The fight is just stronger.
