trip description for Lake Pontchartrain Gar Trip in Mandeville

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

trip description for Fly Fishing Venice, LA in Belle Chasse

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.

trip description for Fishing NOLA on Light Tackle in Belle Chasse

On this epic trip with Captain Shane, you'll be chasing down Redfish in the bayous, bays, and marshes that surround Venice, LA—the undisputed "Redfish Capital of the World". On a typical day, you'll leave the dock early, right at safe light, and start fishing as soon as you get to one of Captain Shane's secret honey holes. These waters are so bountiful with rod-bending Redfish and Speckled Trout that it's not uncommon to catch 100+ fish in a given day! The action here is simply unbelievable, and fishing here should be on every saltwater angler's bucket list! Captain Shane runs a 22' BlackJack center console, which is a shallow-draft vessel ideal for fishing in these inshore waters. Plus, with a trolling motor on the front, you'll be able to sneak up on the fish in just a foot of water! Shane will supply everything you need for an epic trip, including all rods, reels, bait, and tackle! Just bring your camera, fishing licenses, and a good attitude. You'll have a blast! Read More
