About Your Trip

Come join Captain John for the fly fishing adventure of a lifetime! On this full-day trip, Captain John will be your host as you fish and explore the Mississippi River delta, south of New Orleans. The focus is Redfish, specifically giant "bull" Redfish. Nothing compares to the thrill of watching 30 pound Red crawling, backing, and tailing on super clear, skinny water flats of the Mississippi River delta! You'll also have the opportunity to target oversized Black Drum and Sheepshead.

Most days, these fish will readily eat just about any fly cast in front of them. That’s not to say these fish are easy, though. It takes quick accurate casts to get the fly in front of the fish. Whether this is your first trip or you’re a seasoned veteran to these waters, Captain John will take you hotspots and show you tips you won't soon forget!

You'll be fishing aboard a 24' Yellowfin bay boat that can hold up to 2 guests. Powered by a 300 HP Mercury Verado engine, this vessel will bounce you around the Louisiana flats with ease! She comes complete with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well and snorkeling equipment.

Captain John will provide all rods, reels, tackle and flies. All you need to bring is a Louisiana fishing license. We also recommend bringing polarized glasses (possibly the most important piece of equipment besides the flyrod), sunscreen, a camera and appropriate clothing for the conditions. Goretex jackets and bibs are appropriate for all seasons.

If you want to bring your own rod, Captain John recommends 8, 9, & 10wt fly rods with weight forward floating line and your favorite flies. Book your trip today and get ready to catch some massive Redfish!

Captain John offers once-in-a-lifetime Louisiana fly fishing charters for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, and other Louisiana inshore species. Be careful as these adrenaline-filled charters might become an annual pilgrimage to the tailing Redfish of the Southern Louisiana wetlands.

A Florida native, Captain John grew up fishing the freshwater lakes and saltwater flats of West Central Florida. He developed a love for sight fishing Redfish on the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka Rivers, and honed his Redfish and Speckled Trout skills fishing the
Upper Texas Coast and Western Louisiana Coast while attending Texas A&M University.

Central Arkansas is where Captain John learned to fly fish. Casting to big Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout on the Little Red, White, and Norfork Rivers, the sport captured his attention, and he returned to the Gulf Coast to catch Redfish on the fly.

Several years ago, Captain John discovered the unparalleled fly fishing opportunities offered by the marshes of the Mississippi River Delta surrounding New Orleans and South Louisiana. He settled down immediately and founded a charter to chase Louisiana Bull Redfish among all else.
