About Your Trip

With hundreds of post-trip photos showing smiling faces and BIG catches, you’re in good hands. Families, groups, and individuals are all welcome! Whether you’re an avid angler or a beginner, you’ll receive excellent customer service while enjoying an adventurous day of catching fish.

Captain Drake has well over 30 years of experience in the marshes around Lake Pontchartrain. As a full-time guide in South Louisiana, Captain Drake targets Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Bass, and Flounder
on a daily basis.

A trip with Drake means you’ll be riding in style in a brand new 2023 25’ Blue Wave bay boat. With plenty of space and comfortable seats, this modern vessel is equipped with all the necessary electronics to make catching fish easier. It’s the perfect vessel for pursuing Redfish in the shallows, or safely working the open water for Speckled Trout.

After a morning of catching, Captain Drake will clean and bag your fish to your preference. All the ice you need to keep your filets fresh on your journey home will be provided at no additional cost. Kids aged 4 and above are welcome and vests in all sizes are provided. Bottled water is available on board. Bring your own snacks and any drinks you want to keep your energy up. Live bait, when needed, is an additional cost and can range from $10-25 per person.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
