About Your Guide

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!
