Tidal Charters LLC

Tidal Charters is here to show everything the beautiful Calcasieu Lake has to offer a prospective angler. Be prepared to experience the sights, sounds and smells of this coastal lake and surrounding marshland with Captain Brian Windsor. This is some of the best inshore fishing the Bayou State has to offer, so be sure to check it out!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 22’ Blazer Bay boat that comes with a single 250 HP Yamaha Vmax engine. Capable of reaching a top speed of an impressive 60 knots, this boat will get you where you need to be in a snap. It’s also equipped with a Lowrance GPS, Minn Kota trolling motor and Powerpole shallow water anchor.

Captain Brian specializes in inshore saltwater fishing trips, primarily targeting species such as Redfish, Speckled trout, and Flounder. These are some of the best fishing grounds for Redfish in the US, and best of all, the fish are on fire during the entire year.

Included in your trip price are fuel, ice, all the necessary fishing equipment, bait, tackle and fish cleaning services after the trip. All you have to do is bring a valid fishing license, weather appropriate clothing, and polarized sunglasses, along with any food or beverages you would like. Bottled water is also included, and will be available aboard. Come on down for a truly memorable inshore angling adventure.

    Considering how close the fishing grounds are in this part of Louisiana, you should face no problems catching your fair share on a 4-hour trip. The inshore scene mostly revolves around fishing for the likes of Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, but there are plenty of other fish in the sea too.
