Redfish Nation

Redfish Nation invites you to join Captain David Alphonso for some of the best inshore fishing in this part of Louisiana. Capt. David has been going after fish his whole life, and has an intimate knowledge of the local fishery, which he’ll put to good use! Whether you’re a novice angler or someone who’s an old hand at the hobby, you’ve come to the right place.

You’ll be fishing on a 19’ Key West bay boat that’s equipped with a single 140 HP Suzuki engine, and can reach an impressive speed of 35 knots. She’s got everything you’ll need for a productive day on the water, including safety gear, navigation electronics, as well as a wireless trolling motor.

The inshore marshes of Louisiana are a natural estuary for a multitude of species and beautiful sights, so your fishing trip is bound to be a memorable one. Your main target will be the formidable Redfish, but you can also count on the likes of Black Drum, Trout, and Flounder to make an appearance as well.

Capt. David will provide everything you need to fish, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Feel free to bring food and drinks, and they will be kept on ice throughout the trip. Your catch will be cleaned and packaged for you after the trip, so be sure to bring an ice chest to take your bounty home.

The only thing you need to bring with you is a valid fishing license. Come on down and make your angling dreams come true!
