Inshore and Near Coastal Charters
A typical fishing charter starts off leaving the dock anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour before sunrise. The boat ride can range from ten minutes to over an hour; this depends on the time of year and what type of fish we are targeting. The charter will usually last up to seven hours, but it can be more or less depending on the situation. For example, let’s say fishing is tough in the morning and we only have a few fish in the ice chest. All of the sudden, thirty minutes prior to heading back in, we find a great bite and are catching them one after another; we will be happy to extend the fishing trip at no extra cost. On the other hand, if the bite is great in the morning and we finish our limit early, some customers like to head back in to beat the heat.
A fishing license is required for each person eighteen years of age and older who wants to fish. Louisiana offers a three day charter passenger saltwater license for $20.00. There are a few ways to obtain a fishing license prior to your fishing trip. One way is to do so online at https://louisianaoutdoors.com/licenses-and-permits?utm_source=Rec_Fishing_Licensing_Page&utm_medium=Web&utm_campaign=LDWF_Website. Another way is to visit any Louisiana store that issues fishing licenses and purchase one there. A few stores throughout Louisiana who do this are Academy and Wal-Mart.
What Do I Need To Bring?
You are encouraged to bring a cap or hat, sunglasses, non-spray sunscreen, rain gear, soft soled non-marking shoes (preferably deck shoes, flip flops, crocs, or tennis shoes), food, drinks, ice chest to take your catch home, a camera, and a fishing license. All children under sixteen are required to wear a life-jacket while the boat is in transit. We do not have life-jackets for small children; please bring your own. We carry adult size life-jackets, and these will not work for small children.
