Captain Chad is a very knowledgeable guide who is born and raised in Venice who works very hard to get his clients on the fish. If you want to leave Venice Louisiana with and ice chest full of fish captain Chad Owner of southern access charters is the guide that will do his best to make it happen. The only charter I will use when I visit Venice

Can’t say enough good about him. I highly recommend that you go fishing with him, you’ll have big fun.

Awesome!!! We have fished with Captain Chad on two separate occasions and have had a blast. He put us on the fish both times. We actually limited out on reds last October in less than 45 minutes. We had to miss our planned trip this past March. We are looking forward to October!! Love this guy and would definitely recommend. You won't be disappointed.

Great time fishing with captain Chad with my family. With a tropical storm just passing through and a 20mph north wind in the middle of June, we should have been skunked; but captain Chad worked hard to put on fish. We went home with an ice chest full of fillets. Having grown-up in Buras, he knows the Venice waters better than anybody. Chad's a great guy and a fantastic captain.

Best fishing guide in Venice!
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!

Have fished with Chad multiple times over the past few years and would highly recommend his guide services.
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.

captain Chad is an expert! best fishing trip of my life!!! Chad has a vast knowledge of how each species of fish reacts to water Temps and weather systems. if he can't put you on fish no one can. one thing that really stood out to me about Chad is how much he loves fishing....it’s not just about the money to him and he lets you fish like you want to fish.

Captain Chad was awesome! One of the most outgoing guides I have fished with in my entire life (and I’ve fished with a lot). He kept us entertained and on the fish all day long! We stayed moving so he could keep us on the fish. We drove all …More

Captain Chad does and will go above and beyond to make your experience an awesome one. He is on time and has a great since of humor. This was my first trip but I promise many more to come. Thank you Chad for your patience and humor. I highly recommend Southern Access Charters if you want to catch lots of fish and keep tight lines!

One absolutely great trip!!!
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.

Great day with Captain Chad Rudolph at Southern Access Charters
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.

All daytrip with Captain Chad Rudolph
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.

We have taken several trips with Captain Chad under varying conditions. He always seems to know how to put us on fish. We slayed 'em - lots of fish to take home. Great day on the water.

Had a great time with captain Chad. We faced some very heavy rain but were able to dodge most storms and fish through the ones we couldn't avoid. We were able to fill the cooler full of fish despite the less than ideal conditions. Thanks captain Chad for your hard work!!

Top Venice guide!
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.

Southern Access Charters Review Gary and Linda B.
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.

Best of the best
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.

We fished with Captain Chad 2 days. Had a great time catching a lot of big fish. We had to dodge rain storms both days, but Chad hustled to help us get our limit on Bull Reds. Also caught a few trout & a boatload of Sheepshead. Overall, great time. Highly recommend Southern Access Charters and Captain Chad. Give him 5 stars. Already making plans for trip next year!
