Located in the southernmost part of Louisiana, Sportsmans Lodge offers a blend of great accommodations, memorable southern & Cajun cuisine, and true hospitality while partnering with some of the best fly fishing-focused guides in Louisiana. The Sportsmans Lodge is located in Venice, Louisiana in the Venice Marina. Your guide will literally come and pick you up at your doorstep! Venice is about a 2-hour drive south of New Orleans and is located on the edge of the Mississippi River Delta which is appropriately called the “Fishing Capitol of the World.” Venice is surrounded by vast marshes and is close to several barrier islands offering some of the best coastal fishing anywhere in the gulf. In addition to inshore fishing, Venice is the place to go for going offshore to target species such as – tuna, dolphinfish, tripletail, cobia, snapper, wahoo, more jacks, and even marlin!

Upstairs are 8 individual bedrooms with a variety of bedding arrangements with private and semi-private bathrooms. The entire lodge is serviced by a central air conditioning system.

Food and Beverages
Anybody who has visited the deep south knows that good food is part of the draw and experience. Your stay at the Sportsmans Lodge will be no exception. Southern and Cajun cuisine will be on the menu every day. Food and beverages are all-inclusive with your package. Packages will include a hot breakfast before your guide trip, lunch along with snacks, soft drinks, and water on the guide boat, and then appetizers and dinner back at the lodge.
