Excellent trip with Captain Donnie! An experience every sportsman needs. Tails Up/Sea Cruiser will be my only go to when fishing out of Venice. Donnie is a true professional and will make sure you get on the fish no matter what it takes. His new Contender is a battle wagon and he and his crew are second to none.

Mr. Daryl is the first charter I've ever taken, and I would not hesitate to book him again. From the first minute you meet him, he's cutting up with jokes and makes you feel like you've known him for a long time. He quickly put us into a steady supply of HUGE trout. Not a single one had to be thrown back. Can't wait to do this again.

Had a great day with Seth despite the weather. I was only in town for 1 day and could not reschedule so we decided to go out and make the best of it. We caught a nice 22" redfish on first cast and after a few hours work we had another 22" and a fat 27" redfish in the boat. Seth stayed positive the whole day as we tried different spots and techniques. Will definitely fish with him again, hopefully in better weather.

Captain Chad was an incredible guide. From the moment we arrived down in Delacroix and met Chad, we knew we were in good hands. Throughout the entire day Chad put us in numerous spots where the fishing was superb. He knows the area extremely well, was a lot of fun to be around, and everyone had an awesome time. I do not have any negative things to say, all in all, just a great experience. We'll definitely be booking again with him in the near future.

Everything You Need to Know About Louisiana Fishing

Fishing in the Pelican State

Louisiana is an angler’s dream with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, as well as freshwater fishing throughout the state. Nicknamed the “Sportsman’s Paradise,” Louisiana has over 77,000 miles of coastline and the largest manmade lake in the South. Fishing is an important part of Louisiana’s culture, and it’s the perfect place to lose yourself in the bayous and Cajun music to make some great memories.

Fishing Louisiana’s Coasts

Louisiana Inshore Fishing

Louisiana is the “Inshore Fishing Capital of the World” thanks to the sheer amount of coastline and having more marshes than any other coastal state. The intricate Louisiana Coastline was created by the Mississippi River, which built up a delta (where sediment is deposited when the river meets the Gulf) for thousands of years, then changed directions to create a new delta. This created bayous and estuaries with varying tidal depths and salinity perfect for a multitude of inshore fish.

Louisiana Nearshore Fishing

Louisana nearshore waters are full of wrecks, oil rigs, and other structures that make excellent fishing spots.
