My husband and I will be spending a week in NO arriving on the evening of Sept 11, 2010. We would like to do some fishing. We would both like to do an offshore fishing trip - maybe out of Venice (which is 2 hours from NO) for tuna. My husband would like a fly fishing trip for reds (which is about 45 minutes from NO). Anyone interested in splitting costs? Paradise Outfitters out of Venice is supposed to be great but they cost $1200 plus fuel for up to 6 fisherpeople. Way too expensive for 2 of us but with 2 other couples - not too bad. Fly fishing for reds about $450 for two people - I do not fly fish so is anyone interested in going with my hubby for the day. Hope to get some responses as we are avid and seriuos fisherpeople. Thanks.
