Our fishing trip with Southern Access Charters surpassed all of our expectations. Captain Chad Rudolph was great! We asked him to try to put us on some bull reds. Well, we definitely got what we asked for! We kept our limit and had to throw close to 20 of them back! Super experience!

Awesome boys trip with Captain Chad. Me and my boys caught fish all day and made some great memories together. Captain Chad made everything easy and was great to fish with. Can’t wait to do it again.

The best trip I’ve ever had fishing in Venice,LA. I’ve fished there 4 times prior to our two day trip with Southern Access. Captain Chad did not rest in his efforts to fill our coolers up and we did!!! Southern Access Charters is the real deal!!

I have fished with Captain Chad for four years now and he never ceases to amaze me. We have been in all conditions from storms to calm, hot to cold, rain, wind you name it and Chad always seems to know the little spot that we can find fish. I have never had to worry about who I bring with me as Chad is always family friendly. By far he is the best guide in Venice. It is an honor to know him and look forward to my next outing with him. This last outing I had with him, we caught and threw back over 50 bull reds and large black drums. I am surprised the net held together as we used it to bring in 2 bull reds at a time. Thanks Chad

Captain Chad is hands down the best to get you on fish. Every time we fish with Captain Chad he makes sure we’re not only catching fish, but we’re also having fun doing it. He knows the feeding and migration habits of the fish and works hard to send you home with a nice mix of species. Our freezer is stocked and memories were made.

What an incredible fishing experience that exceeded our expectations. The variety of catches, including snapper, shark, black drum, redfish, speckled trout, and sheepshead, made it an unforgettable trip. Chad is a very knowledgeable guide and ensured we targeted the right spots, resulting in a successful and enjoyable outing. The weather initially was not cooperating but Chad went out if his way to make sure we had a successful trip! Will definitely be rebooking.

Captain Chad is the best fishing guide in Venice. He is a very hardworking guide and will do everything he can to put you on the fish. He is very knowledgeable about the area so even when conditions are not the best he is still able to produce a great box of fish. He is great with everyone and a pleasure to be around. I have used Captain Chad numerous times and he never disappoints. If you are going to Venice and want to catch a lot of fish book with Captain Chad.

Chad put us on over 200 redfish in 3 days, plus plenty of sheepshead and black drum. I didn’t count, but something like 10-12 redfish over 40 inches, and probably 2-3 dozen more over 30 inches. But for someone that fishes weekly, what I look for most in a good guide experience is how hard they work. Catching fish was awesome, but most impressive to me was how hard Chad worked the entire day to make our experience as memorable as possible. Call this guy and set up a trip with him…now!

Captain Chad is the real deal! I have honestly been to a great many places to fish with alot of good captains but Chad has everyone beat hands down. A great captain but an even better man, father and husband. If you wanna great trip he is the man. Give my friend a call and I promise you won't be disappointed.
