Tired of regular old rod n’ reel fishing? Try out bowfishing with Captain Gavin! This amazing trip takes you into the shallow marshlands of southeast Louisiana, where you have the opportunity to pick off fish the old fashioned (and more bad ass) way. At night, you will set out for a 6 hour journey aboard an 18’ Alumatech Air Boat. This stealthy fish catching machine allows you to sneak up on your prey. 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

trip description for Full Day Inshore - 24' Blue Wave in Boothville-Venice

Head out with Captain Jay for an incredible inshore experience in Venice Louisiana! On a typical day, you will leave the dock at “safe light” and will find yourself running through a maze of bayous, bays, and marshes on your way to one of the many Louisiana fishing locations in the area. Once arriving at the first “honey hole”, you will troll or drift along while casting to grass-covered areas or over one of the many oyster reefs in the marshes. These waters are so bountiful with rod bending redfish and tail walking speckled trout that it is not uncommon to catch 50+ fish each day. The Louisiana fishing trip action is unbelievable. Venice, Louisiana is the undisputed “Redfish Capital of the World”. You will never go redfish fishing anywhere else and be able to catch more 20-30+ pound redfish, and that is a fact. Captain Jay will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water! So all you need to bring is your Louisiana fishing license, your favorite snacks and drinks, and let Captain Jay get you hooked into the fish! Read More

Captain Brad will provide all you need for a great day of fishing the tidal bayous and bay area of the Southern Louisiana waterways including all the tackle, bait, coolers, ice, water, and safety equipment. Everything you could possibly need for a safe, enjoyable, and successful adventure. He will also clean and bag your catch for you at the end of the day. All he recommends you bring is your weather-appropriate clothing, sunscreen, non-marking shoes, snacks, personal beverages of choice. Read More

    MY TRIP WAS PERFECT. The weather was terrible and my guide, Nick kept in touch with me to plan the perfect launch time. He patiently waited it out with me and we loaded the ice chest with trout! I would highly recommend booking with Frank again. I'll always ask for Nick!

    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!

    Sarah E. with Brad D. of New Orleans, Louisiana

  • ★★★★★
    Good guide, knows where the fish are, would have like to see tactical changes made for different species or when the bit slowed down. I’d like to see a variety in the arsenal you know. That’s just me being my hardcore fishing self. My wife loved it because we didn’t have to clean or fuel our boat. I agree it’s nice just being a paying customer. The hard thing for me and being very expirienced is you expect everyone to be like you. Tommy did us right and I appreciate his hard work. I’d use Tommy again and would recommend Tommy to others

    Jace is a great captain, he knew exactly where the fish were and we had non stop action. We went on a MEAT HUNT.

    Captain Jacob gets 5 BIG stars from my son Tyler and I. We had a fantastic trip with him yesterday. I cannot imagine there is a better fishing guide in the area . He had us on huge donkey red snappers in no time and he took us to many other locations for other species, since we had limited out on red snapper in the first 2 hours of fishing. His boat was immaculate. As a marine surveyor I look at these things as the safety of my son and myself is very important. Captain Jacob has a great sense of humor and makes sure his guests have a great time. Definitely choose him for your trio.

    Captain Mike was Professional, Punctual and productive !! I will definitely use him again when I come to New Orleans. He has us limits out in an off season. He did not try to oversell us initially and then totally exceeded our expectations. To top it off were eating fresh fish less than thirty minutes after we were docked !! Thank You ! Captain mike

    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.

    Sam Z. with Daryl C. of Grand Isle, Louisiana

    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.
