First off, I never leave a review for a charter/ guide based of how many fish we catch, they're a wild animal you can not control. However, I base my experience off of communication with the charter, quality of boat/ equipment, but mainly off how hard the guide works to get you on fish. One thing I did not know that I wish I did, is that Home Run subs out some of their trips to part time guides. You may not be fishing with a full time fishing guide. Considering Home Run Charters is one of the higher priced inshore charters in Venice, I expected better quality tackle and a nicer boat than what we used/ fished out of. We started out targeting bull reds but with the wind, it wasn't happening. By about 10:30AM our guide moved us back into the marsh, but unfortunately I feel like he kind of gave up on the day at that point. We spent the rest of the day fishing canals close to the marina. He brought us back to the dock around 1:30PM. (I was always under the impression a "full day trip was" 8 hours, we started at 7:30AM) We ended with a couple rat reds, a flounder, and a bunch of hardheads. I do want to mention though, that our guide was super friendly and very nice to spend the day with! Having been to Venice before, this charter did not meet my expectations. There are a lot of great hardworking guides down here, do a little more research before booking your trip! (To be clear, my review is only for Home Run's inshore fishing charters only)

We have fished so many places and as in fishing there are good days and bad days. The day with Home Run Fishing Charters was one of the best fishing trips we've ever had no question. We caught several fish black fin tuna and yellow fin tuna. Our guides were awesome very energetic and eager to go to no ends to get a tuna. Thank you guys so much for such a great and memorable trip.

Myself and 5 other family members fished with Captain John and mate Anthony on October 5, 2019. I can't say enough good things about them! Our boat was the 42' Conch and it was awesome! The captain had us on fish within 10 minutes of getting to the first rig we fished. We limited out on yellow fin within two hours. After limiting, we deep dropped for swordfish and caught a 151 pounder and lost another one. Besides the fishing, the Lodge is also amazing, it is clean, comfortable and has everything you could want/need in a lodge setting. We highly recommend Home Run charters and will definitely fish with them again soon!

Booked a 12 hour charter 7/21. They brought us back after 9 hours 45 mins. For no reason. Was told all tuna wahoo mahi and swords were 80 miles out. The other charter beside them. Came back with tuna sword and mahi. As did 2 other boats that came back after a 10 hour charter. I asked them how far they went out. Was told 30 miles. We went 27 miles out. Came back with red and mangrove snapper. None of us even touched a rod till almost noon. Captain either lied or didn’t know what he was doing. We didn’t go to Venice to catch snapper. Also. The food was horrible. It was all microwaved. The lunch sandwich had 1 piece of deli meat. The eggs were dry. Microwaved potatoes. There was so much potential with this trip to Venice. But HRC failed miserably. Use another fishing charter. Anyone but home run charters. They don’t care. Just about the $$$$. We spent $4300. And came away with bad memories and fish I can catch 2 miles out. Anywhere. Not the tuna mahi or swordfish that we were so looking forward to catching. And yes. There were lots of other charters catching them. Also. Their other boat. Came back in. Same time as us. Same catch. Paid for 12 hours. Got less than 10.

We had recent trips scheduled for 1 day off shore fishing for tuna and second day 1/2 day for inshore for reds etc. Unfortunately the first day for tuna was cancelled(with plenty of notice) due to incoming weather. Homerun charters was very accomodating as to what we wanted to do (ie cancel rest of trip with refund or reschedule for another time). Being we had traveled from Pennsylvania and were already in the New Orleans area enjoying family time for the Thanksgiving Day Holiday, we opted to fish for a full day inshore and cancel the offshore part of our trip. Our guide, Ethan, was excellent in his knowledge of the waters in that area and went above and beyond in a very appealing and professional manner to make our day successful and enjoyable. Multiple locations were visited to locate sizable fish and the high point of the day was fishing in close proximity to the exact location of where the Mississippi River actually meets the Gulf of Mexico. Seeing the Tankers and container ships entering the River nearby, along with several dolphins close to our boat, was nice to view while catching multiple species of fish. I think that Ethan may have shown some partiality to my wife as I'm pretty sure he had a hand in her catching the "Big" fish of the trip , a 25 pound black drum. Housing facilities were very nice and clean and right next to where boat was located. We had a meal plan for one day and all food was excellent and plentiful with a good variety of items.
