About Your Trip
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
... Read More 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!
