Head out with Captain James to fish Lake Pontchartrain and the surrounding backwater marshes for Redfish, Trout, and Drum with Captain James....Read More
These full day trips leave from "The Dock" in Slidell around 6-6:30am and run until around 1pm sometime alittle longer. Captain James is not one to watch his watch, he likes to watch the fish drop into the boat! The Dock in Slidell puts you a very short boat ride from premier fishing spots that Captain James knows like the back of his hand.
On your trip you will do a lot of sight casting with artificials, live bait, and popping corks. Out on lake Pontchartrain, you can drift the bay and hit Captain James' honeyholes as well.
Don't forget your Louisiana fishing license, but Captain James will provide all the fishing equipment (Rods, Reels, Bait, etc), water, sports drinks, and light snacks. He will even clean your fish for you at the end of the day! All he recommends you bring is you sun protection (Sunscreen, Sunglasses, Hats), Bug spray, and your rain gear just in case.
Note from your Captain: "Hi, I am Captain James I am a Coast Guard licensed captain, a native of South Louisiana, and I have been fishing these waters my entire life. As a boy, my dream was to one day fish professionally. After many years of tournament fishing, I qualified for the 2006 Bassmaster Classic and for the next few years, fished nationally as an Elite Series angler. This was an experience of a lifetime that I will always treasure. Although that national circuit was a big part of my life, it is the local waters of South Louisiana that call my name. With the amount of time I have spent on these waters, I have become a master at tides and patterns. I enjoyed tournament fishing but there is nothing like taking someone out and watching them pull in a limit of reds and specks. Come fish with me and let's go enjoy some truly exciting and unique South Louisiana fishing!
This charter service is the most professional and knowledgeable with also having a great time!!! Highly recommended!! James is a true Captain!
