Inshore Charter

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 eight 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 around twenty or thirty 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.   


Bowfishing is a blast and great for all ages.  A typical bowfishing charter runs 4-5 hours and can accommodate 2-6 people.  The boat I use is a 20' Prodrive rigged with twin 37hp Prodrive motors.   The lights are 50w LED's that are powered by a generator.

We typically meet at dusk to get acquainted.  I will go over the rules and also any pointers for shooting fish.  After a short boat ride, we start bowfishing.  While bowfishing, we slowly ride around in the shallow marshes looking for fish to shoot.  When our time is up, we head back to the dock, take a few pictures, and send you on your way with the catch.

Fishing License

A fishing license is required for each person sixteen years of age and older who wants to fish.  Louisiana offers a three day resident or non-resident charter passenger license for $10.00.  There are a few ways to obtain a fishing license prior to your fishing trip.  One way is to do so online at  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, 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. 

***Your Captain will contact you to collect the difference for your trip depending upon the number of guests you have.***
