Strictly Business Fishing Charters

It’s time to book a trip with Strictly Business Fishing Charters. Run by Captain Claude Jolicoeur, he has decades of fishing experience and knows all the best places to take you to give you the most productive day out on the water.

Join him on his Carolina Skiff Dlv218 to see the best fishing in the shallow marshes of Lake Pontratrain. This 22’ bay boat can comfortably have you and 3 fishing friends on board. This vessel also has a 150 HP Yamaha engine which will get you to the fishing grounds in 30 minutes.

After this short drive, you’ll be primarily targeting Flounder, Redfish and Spotted Seatrout. Other fish you may hook are Black Drum, Tripletail, and Sheepshead. These great fish will be cleaned for you after the trip by the captain. If you need them filleted too this can be arranged.

Everyone is welcome on board, from children over 7 to people who have never fished before. Capt. Claude will show you the tricks of the trade and have you fishing in no time. There are life vests on board for the children.

You’ll be using top quality rods and reels on this trip that won’t let you down – whether this is your first ever fish or your hundredth, there is fish out there with your name on it! Live bait is prepared for you. To give you that extra edge in catching your dream fish, you’ll be using shrimp as bait.

Before the trip, you’ll need to purchase a fishing license for the day. You are welcome to bring along your own snacks and refreshments, although water is supplied.

Book now and meet Capt. Claude on the water for an awesome day out!

"I fell in love with the sport at an early age, of just 5 years old. I won my first fishing rodeo at the age of 8 years, then found salt water and marshes – this opened up new doors and more options to explore, and I've never stopped since." Captain Claude Jolicoeur has been fishing for over 3 decades. Born and raised here, he specializes in Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. You'll have a great day out with him.
