The Chandeleur Islander, a stationary and stable jack-up fishing lodge, can become the destination you've been searching for while fishing the Chandeleur Islands.
Upon arrival, the Chandeleur Islander will be safely jacked up out of the water where the Islander crew will be offering you hearty meals and comfortable accommodations. The team provides on/off stairway access from their suspended 30' dock to your accommodations on deck.
Using the lodge as a base, you can arrange guided trips, enjoy excellent wade fishing along the islands, or perhaps head for that popular local fishing spot you've heard all about!
What a great 3 day trip to the Chandeleur-Islander fishing lodge! Ron and Erin were our hosts and they did a fantastic job looking our for our needs as well as giving us a great fishing experience. Accommodations and food were awesome. They have created a fantastic experience on a jack-up rig which is unique and fun. I highly recommend it!
This place is a paradise in heaven. Great fishing and the lodge is unique. Great accommodations, food is wonderful and Ron and Erin are great hosts. Bring your wife and friends and you will be hooked.
