Louisiana Charter Fishing

Welcome to Ellender Charters.  We offer inshore and near coastal fishing trips.  We fish the waters south of Houma, Louisiana.  These waters range from south of Morgan City, Louisiana, to south of Fourchon, Louisiana.  A typical trip departs from Cocodrie, LA and depending on the type of fishing, the boat ride can be 10 minutes or over an hour.  Like I said above, our fishing grounds cover many miles and with all this area, comes an abundance of fish. 

On an inshore trip, we generally target redfish and speckled trout, but we also catch many other species.  These fish include redfish, speckled trout, black drum, and sheepshead. 

A near coastal fishing charter targets speckled trout, redfish, mangrove snapper, and sheepshead.  The time of year dictates when we can target these fish.  

Ellender Charters caters to your wants, so if you want to strictly catch redfish, then that is what we will try to do.  If you are like the majority of people and just want to catch, then we can cater to those wants as well.  We guarantee you will have a great time!
