If you’re looking for a trip that offers maximum flexibility as well the chance to learn about conservation while you fish, you’ve found the right place with Sea Dawg Charter. Captain Eddie Permenter has over three decades of experience, and has been featured in Louisiana Sportsman Magazine, so you know you’re in very capable hands.

These trips are great for people from all walks of life. From families with small kids to anglers who have been fishing for years. Whatever your experience level you will be more than welcome aboard and made to feel like family. Capt. Eddie is an outstanding captain and fisherman, who wants to share his knowledge about the area and conservation with you. He knows how important it is to pass the rod on to the next generation.

You will spend the day aboard a 24’ Skeeter, a great boat that was also restored recently. She is ready to go if you are! She comfortably fits 4 anglers at once, with plenty of space so you won’t be crossing rods. You will be fishing with superior Shimano fishing gear, including Stradic Spinning Reels, Calcutta Bait Casters, and Trinidad Deep Drop Reels on Trevala rods.

Capt. Eddie’s knowledge of the area will get you to all the best fisheries. Along with his wireless trolling motor, you will be able to sneak up on the fish you are targeting with ease. This will make for a very productive fishing trip.

Just let Capt. Eddie know what you would like to do on your trip and he will go out of his way to make that happen. If that means stopping half-way through to go to a restaurant, or keeping in sight of the shore, he can accommodate your wishes with ease. This is your trip, and with Sea Dawg Charter you know you will have a great time and learn lots.

So all that’s left to do is decide how you will cook the catch you choose to keep – another thing that Capt. Eddie can help you with! His great recipes will rock your world. Just another reason to book with him today.
