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

These waters are so bountiful with rod bending redfish and tail walking speckled trout. 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 Bryan 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 Bryan get you hooked into the fish! Read More

    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!

    I’ve fished in several states all over the country including AK and Troy was by far the best “Captain “ we have used. Picked us up right off our house boat! Very knowledgeable and helpful. Was also patient with kids. Will definitely be going back!

    the trip was so awful. There are no fish and the trip was so expensive. There was no memory

    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.

    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.

    Darrel was a wonderful captain he made the entire 2 days awesome

    Captain David was very good and interesting to talk with. Our first day out his deck hand had misunderstood our fishing days and was unable to go so David had to do the trip himself. He did his very best but unfortunately we didn't catch anything and helped him as much as possible. The second day he had two deckhands and it went so much more smoothly and they were very informative and very knowledgeable. They tried their best to put us on fish but it didn't work to our favor. We caught one swordfish. It was a very expressive trip for one fish but I understand that happens. I would definitely use captain David again and hope to try it again next year

    Best day ever with this guide. It’s was cold out and we were able to find the fish we were looking for thank to him. Can’t wait to go back!! I’ll definitely use this guide again.

    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.
