Come join Captain John for the fly fishing adventure of a lifetime! On this full-day trip, Captain John will be your host as you fish and explore the Mississippi River delta, south of New Orleans. The focus is Redfish, specifically giant "bull" Redfish. Nothing compares to the thrill of watching 30 pound Red crawling, backing, and tailing on super clear, skinny water flats of the Mississippi River delta! You'll also have the opportunity to target oversized Black Drum and Sheepshead. Most days, these fish will readily eat just about any fly cast in front of them. That’s not to say these fish are easy, though. It takes quick accurate casts to get the fly in front of the fish. Whether this is your first trip or you’re a seasoned veteran to these waters, Captain John will take you hotspots and show you tips you won't soon forget! You'll be fishing aboard a 24' Yellowfin bay boat that can hold up to 2 guests. Powered by a 300 HP Mercury Verado engine, this vessel will bounce you around the Louisiana flats with ease! She comes complete with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well and snorkeling equipment. Captain John will provide all rods, reels, tackle and flies. All you need to bring is a Louisiana fishing license. We also recommend bringing polarized glasses (possibly the most important piece of equipment besides the flyrod), sunscreen, a camera and appropriate clothing for the conditions. Goretex jackets and bibs are appropriate for all seasons. If you want to bring your own rod, Captain John recommends 8, 9, & 10wt fly rods with weight forward floating line and your favorite flies. Book your trip today and get ready to catch some massive Redfish! Read More

The combination of seemingly unlimited fish and miles and miles of shallow water make coastal Louisiana one of the best-kept secrets in the fly-fishing world. If you haven't heard about Louisiana fly-fishing, it's probably because people want to keep it all to themselves! On this trip, you'll be going after classic inshore species such as Jack Crevalle, Redfish, and Speckled Trout—all on the fly! As with any fly-fishing trip, you will catch slightly fewer fish than you might catch on conventional tackle; however, double hook-ups are basically a certainty on every Louisiana charter trip. On a good day, you can expect to catch 5-10 fish per angler, and on an exceptional day the numbers can reach 20 fish per angler or more. There are also plenty of Black Drum and Sheepshead, both of which will readily take a fly. You'll be out there on Captain Shane's 22' BlackJack center console, which is ideal for fishing the inshore flats, marshes, and shallows. Although he can provide fly rods and reels, it's preferable if you can bring your own so that you can work with the gear you have the most practice with! Shane recommends 8-9 wt. rods and drag-equipped reels with weight-forward floating line and the capacity to hold at least 60 yards of 20 lb. backing. This particular rod and reel combination will allow you to accurately cast a variety of saltwater flies in varying wind conditions and will also allow you to absorb the line stripping run that many of these fish will make when you set the hook. It is also a good idea to bring along a 10 wt. rod and reel combination. The 10 wt. will do a better job handling big (20-30 lb.) redfish or some of the other bigger species such as jack crevalle.

The combination of a seemingly unlimited supply of hungry fish and miles and miles of shallow water, make coastal SE Louisiana one of the best kept secrets in the fly fishing world. If you haven’t heard about Louisiana Fly Fishing, it’s probably because a lot of people don’t want you to know about it so that they can have it all to themselves. As with any fly fishing trip, we don’t normally catch as many fish as we would on conventional tackle; however, multiple hook-ups are almost a certainty on every Louisiana guided fishing trip. On a good day you can expect to catch 5-10 fish per angler, on an exceptional day the numbers can reach 20+ fish per angler or more. There are also plenty of black drum and sheepshead, both of which will readily take a fly. Trust me, this truly is a place that fly fishermen fall in love with. Read More

trip description for Louisiana Salt Marsh Fly Trip in Hopedale

Captain Jeff is here to offer guided fly fishing and light tackle spinning rod trips in the saltwater marshes south of New Orleans, making him one of the premiere Louisiana Redfish charters. Since he is located in the city, he can fish on either the east or west side of the Mississippi River depending on the time of year and conditions, with Port Sulphur and Venice on the west side and Hopedale and Delacroix on the east. The early fall when the big fish come back into the marsh from offshore is prime time but the fishing is spectacular all year round. The primary target on these trips is to catch and release giant redfish but black drum, sheepshead, jack crevalle, speckled trout and even giant alligator gar populate the same waters. Trips usually start around 8:00am and go till around 4:00 because the sun needs to be up to be able to see the fish. In the hotter months trips start earlier so you aren’t out there in the hottest part of the day. His boat is a seventeen-foot Maverick Mirage II with a 90-horsepower Etec strapped to the back. It has a custom front-casting platform with a rail for added stability. This flats skiff is ideal for fishing the marshes and bayous that surround New Orleans. All gear is provided. Captain Jeff ties his own spoon flies and has a ton of tasty-looking crab and shrimp patterns under development. Not to mention plenty of Clouser minnows and poppers queued up as well. He always keeps a 10 or 12-weight fly rod rigged and ready in case you see a big Jack feeding. If you want to bring your own gear that’s also fine. For the spinning enthusiast, Captain Jeff likes to use small suspending crankbaits with inline hooks, gold spoons, and topwater baits whenever possible. Read More

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year.
