Jean Lafitte Harbor Charters – 30'

Jean Lafitte Harbor Charters and Captain Gavin McKerchie invite you to take part in some of the best inshore fishing grounds Louisiana has to offer. He and his crew will make sure you get a trip customized to your individual needs, and that you’ll fondly remember for years to come.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 35’ Aluma Marine boat that’s powered by twin 300 Yamaha engines, making it possible to achieve a top speed of 45 knots. She’s a spacious and sturdy vessel, with enough room for up to 10 prospective anglers to go fishing. It’s equipped with all the necessary safety and navigation gear, as well as an air-conditioned cabin, so bring some friends along and fish until you drop.

The crew can accommodate a variety of different fishing trips, from your run-of-the-mill topwater fishing for Speckled Trout to going after Red, Flounder, Drum, and plenty of other fish species. If you’re not really sure what you want to do, just sit back, relax, and let them take you to where the bite is best.

You’ll find all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle included in the price of a given trip. Anything you catch during the trip will be cleaned and filleted free of charge for your convenience. Bring some snacks, a pair of sunglasses, and come on down for a rod-bending adventure.
