One day of fishing just isn’t enough? Make it a double! Captain Gavin and his experienced crew are stoked to take you out for a 48-hour fishing extravaganza! Up to 10 guests can comfortably fit aboard the 32’ Aluma Marine which you will use to extensively search the Louisiana marshland for Redfish and Speckled Trout. The network of canals stretches for miles, and over 2 days you will have plenty of time to explore it. Y'all will be staying in the newly renovated cabins, bunkhouses, or houseboats that sit on the bayou for a beautiful view of the bayou. Besides Redfish and Speckled Trout, the flats are home to Black Drum, Flounder, and Redfish, all of which are delicious. Each person on the trip should bring a large cooler to keep their catch fresh for dinner. Not to worry, lodging overnight is included. There, Captain Gavin will clean your catch for you and you can try your hand at the grill. He will also provide you with all the rods, reels, bait, and tackle necessary for a successful trip, as well as sodas during the hot days. You should also bring extra drinks and snacks for each day, because the weather down there can get pretty hot. Always feel free to take a break in the air-conditioned cabin aboard the vessel. You have 2 whole days to fish––no need to spend every second with a rod in hand. The twin 600hp Yamaha engines will guide you smoothly through the flats as Captain Gavin takes you to the best fishing holes in the area. Read More

Report to Lafitte, LA bright and early for a full day adventure on the flats! Captain Gavin will guide you (and up to 5 of your friends and family) through the maze of shallow water creeks and canals that dominate the southern tip of Louisiana’s “Boot.” The trip takes place only forty minutes outside of New Orleans, so take a break from the Big Easy and make your way out to the Gulf Coast for a relaxing day on the water. The marshes are teeming with Flounder, Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. These fish taste amazing and you can grill them up when you get back. Just bring a cooler to keep them fresh during your journey. You also need to bring snacks, drinks, sun protection, appropriate clothing, and of course a valid Louisiana Fishing License (which is relatively easy to acquire). Other than that, Captain Gavin will provide everything you need including rods, bait, and light tackle. The vessel is a 24’ Express Bay Boat powered by a 250HP Yamaha engine, perfectly designed to navigate the canals and lead you to the best fishing holes. Captain Gavin’s experience and knowledge of the area also help to bring you straight to the fish. This incredible trip is an amazing opportunity to get out on the water and cast some lines for a great-tasting dinner! Read More

It comfortably fits up to 4 guests and the Captain. You will be targeting Redfish, but many Drum, Gar, Sheephead, and Catfish can be found too. Captain Gavin will clean your catch, provide all the necessary equipment, and bring a cooler to keep your catch fresh. You also need to bring your own food and drinks, as well as a jacket to stay warm in the cold night air. All bows and arrows are provided by the Captain. This once-in-a-lifetime experience should be both fun and rewarding. You should definitely bring a camera to document this unique trip! Read More

We got skunked, but Capt. Gavin put in lot of work for us and made us feel very welcome. If the fish aren’t biting, nothing he can do about it. Great place and smooth trip

Brock C.

Hunting

This trip was so great! Captain Gavin and his crew was great, very knowledgeable! We caught a ton of big fish and if a spot wasn’t bringing them in we moved and started catching them again! Could not have asked for a better time and they should be the first choice for anyone wanting to do a charter in Louisiana!
