Awesome fishing with Captain Chad,Southern access charters,He knows where the fish are and how to put them in the boat. My wife and I are an older couple and this was our 45th wedding anniversary celebration. Captain Chad was very patient, considerate and attentive to our needs as an older couple.The fishing was unbelievably awesome and we really enjoyed our time with Captain Chad. Can’t say enough good about him. I highly recommend that you go fishing with him, you’ll have big fun.
My fiance and myself went with Captain Chad and he was awesome! He showed us many different fishing techniques for all the species of fish we caught. He kept us reeling in fish all day long! We went for 3 days with him and every day was an adventure of fishing different areas for fish! He worked hard to find fish and keep us on the fish. We had a blast and he even cleaned all our fish at the end of the day! Best fishing trip of our life! Can't wait to go again with Captain Chad!
Great, knowledgeable guide, who will get you on the fish. Chad has been wonderful to fish with time over the years. We have always come home with a cooler full of fish. He’s a pleasure to be around, and is very helpful to those without a lot of fishing experience. I look forward to fishing with him again soon.
Capt Chad is one of the best , his inshore guide service is phenomenal. Very safe with boat operations and he knows his stuff . Have caught fish with him anytime of the year ! Would recommend him to anyone who wants the Venice Experience of lifetime
From the minute we arrived in the fishing area the action was hot and very heavy. First fish on actually broke the rod, but we brought it in anyway, about a 40 lb. Jack Cravelle. Of course, we released it, but what a fight. After that we hit a school of Bull Reds and the fight was on for quite a while. At the end of the day we had 10 Reds, 10 Black Drum, a dozen Sheepshead, 3 Spanish Mackerel, 3 Speckled Trout, and a Florida Pompano. Overall about 300 lbs. of fish. Chad was really great to work with and we will be back.
Weather was tough but Captain Chad moved us a couple of times and put us on lots and lots of fish. He really knows his stuff, knows the area, and helped us to be better fishermen. Very easy to get along with. We will come back to fish with him again.
Super foggy morning, didn’t stop Captain Chad. He put us on fish ASAP. Caught our limit of reds in no time an a ton of sheepshead. Excellent guide. Not only very professional but a lot of fun. This trip was on my bucket list and it was fantastic. We brought about 40 pounds of fillets ready for the grill. If fishing fun is what you seek, Cajun Unlimited with Captain Chad Rudolph is the only way to go. Mick Roney, Louisville Kentucky.
I’ve been on at least 6 trips with Capt. Chad and Southern Access Charters with friends from all over the country. Every trip has been awesome with everyone catching not only trophy fish but also numbers and in most cases a fish of a lifetime. Capt. Chad always has a great attitude and works hard to put his customers on fish. He’s very knowledgeable about the Venice area and knows the delta like the back of his hand. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Wanted to go on a Sheepshead and Redfish Charter with my wife. What an amazing 2 days of fishing. One of the best days fishing we have ever had. Captain Chad was the best and put us on the fish non-stop. Filled the boat cooler full. The most professional and friendly guide we have ever used. Going to go on a Snapper trip with him in a few months. He made our fishing trip unforgettable. If you want to go to Venice, LA you have to book Captain Chad Rudolph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again for a great trip. Gary and Linda B.
Heading down the end of May for the 3rd year in a row to fish with Chad. Chad is one of the best guides I have ever fished with. His knowledge of the waters around Venice is unparalleled and his equipment is top of the line. One thing about Chad is he will go out of his way to ensure you and your family have a experience of a lifetime. Chad started as our guide 3 years ago but is now a valued friend. When you book with southern access charters you will have a trip of a lifetime.
