Guided by Mackie Bellott
I have been fishing Lake Ponchatrain and it’s surrounding Bayous since I first could hold a rod. My passion became my career when I went to work for Captain Andy Jones over the summer of 19’. Captain Andy taught me everything there is to know about hunting the Kraken and I continue to heed his advice while on the water. While waiting for the Kraken to awaken from hibernation, we have become expert Redfish and Trout fisherman, finding the best spots across Lake Ponchatrain, Catherine, and Borgne to load a box full of fish for our customers.
On this trip, you will target the Lake Pontchartrain Kraken, a mythical monster that has been snapping fisherman’s rods and steel leaders around the Lake! If you can't manage to hook the beast, you'll still be able to go after trophy Alligator Gar, Bull Reds, and the infamous Lake Pontchartrain Bull Sharks! These species are a blast to catch, and they can open up a serious can when hooked. Captain Mack will take you to the best fishing holes and feeding grounds on the Lake, and make sure you have the best possible gear and tackle to hook up some monsters! This trip is typically "CPR" (Catch, Photo, Release). If you want to keep fish, let your captain know and he can make sure to find some slot fish. Get out there and have a blast! Read More

Captain Mack. got us on fish first thing in the morning. If the fishing slowed down in that spot, he knew where to go. and kept us on fish all day. 40” 18.5lbs red was the biggest fish of the day, what a great experience. Don’t hesitate about booking your trip here. He is fast to respond!!!! …
