Louisiana Charter Fishing

Welcome to Ellender Charters.  We offer inshore, near coastal, and fly 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 red snapper, mangrove snapper, and sheepshead.  The time of year and season dictates when we can target these fish. 

Fly fishing and/or sight casting charters generally target redfish.  For this, we run a 17' Maverick technical poling skiff.  Due to the size of the boat and the shallow waters, these trips are limited to 1-2 people.   

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!
