Black Velvet Charters

Black Velvet Charters and Captain Todd Black invites you to fish the inshore waters out of Chauvin, Louisiana. Enjoy world-class fishing without the hassle of heading too far out and sample some of the best species around.

Spend your day light tackle fishing, fly fishing, popping, spinning, and jigging for anything from Tripletail and Black Drum to Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and Flounder. Capt. Todd will work hard to make a great catch possible. He knows the local waters like the back of his hand and has been fishing in Cocodrie his entire life. Todd is dedicated to making sure everyone has an amazing fishing experience they won’t soon forget.

In 2014, Captain Todd caught the State Record Mangrove Snapper and won the Star Tournament in the Mangrove Snapper Division. A few years later, he won the Trade Winds Speckled Trout Tournament and came first in the “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere” competition. If you are looking for a tournament-style experience, Todd is your guide.

You will be greeted with a warm welcome on a 24’ Halter center console. This is a comfortable boat with a Yamaha engine and enough room for up to four anglers. The vessel is rigged with a GPS, a fishfinder, a VHF radio, and a radar, as well as a multimedia system, and icebox for the catch, and a livewell for bait.

All rods, reels, tackle, and lures will be available on board.
