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

In the days leading up to your trip, he will reach out to you to discuss where your group will be coming from and where the best launch location will be based on your position and where the fish are most localized! Once you've agreed upon a meet-up location and the day of your trip arrives, you will find Captain Lance at the boat ramp to load up aboard his 24' Pathfinder bay boat and head out into the marsh! Captain Lance provides fuel, fishing tackle, ice, live bait, and will even clean and bag all the fish you catch for your travel home. Water, cold drinks, and food are not automatically provided but Captain Lance can bring them along at your request for a small additional fee. He does ask that you leave your crocs, flip-flops, and sandals at home. Please where nonscuffing sneakers.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Daryl was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and laid-back. He made our fishing trip beginner-friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we caught the fish we were after. We reeled in every species you’d want during our inshore adventure! His teaching skills were top-notch, and he never once made me feel inadequate due to my lack of fishing experience. Plus, he had a great sense of humor that kept us laughing throughout the trip. Best fishing trip I’ve been on! I can't wait to go fishing with him again!

    Went out with Captain Davide on June 5,2023. His in depth knowledge of the waters ( fishing he area since he was 9y.o.) really made the difference. We were on fish almost all day. He knew how to target each species and the best place to get them. He organized the day to target species that would keep us reeling fish in. Combination of American reds (15), Tuna(6), and variety of other species . Not to mention the wahoo that broke me off ( Damn near the biggest I ever saw). Ended with a day of heat exhaustion for me, 2 hours of fish cleaning for David, and buying 3 extra coolers for the haul home. Be careful...... There is alot of mean mugging at the cleaning station. Most everyone else got skunked that day. Thanks Capt. David Dr, James Hill Ft. Lauderdale Fl.

    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.
