Twisting and turning for what seems like an eternity – get lost on South Louisiana’s bayous with Fishtales Guide Service. Based out of Golden Meadows, you’ll have access to the incredibly productive shallow waters heading out into the Gulf. With a name like Captain Jim Thibodeaux, boy are you in for big fun on the bayou! A native to the area and a pro fisherman since 1995, he knows exactly where the biggest, tastiest fish are hiding.
You’ll navigate these intricate waterways aboard a 25’ Majek bay boat. A light vessel, she’s not only ideal for traversing the skinny waters, she can also be pushed to a staggering 55 knots thanks to the 300 HP Yamaha engine. You’ll chase the fish with the wind in your hair all day long, while the wireless trolling motor will keep you steady in the shallowest spots. Creep up gently on the spooky fish around you and get ready to reel in some beauties.
Capt. Jim likes to target food fish. Get ready to fill your fridge with tasty Black and Red Drum, Speckled Trout, and everyone’s favorite – Flounder. Live bait will be prepared before the trip and you’ll use the latest Daiwa rods to get the best results while jigging to entice the bite. You can also use poppers, and experienced anglers are welcome to bring their fly fishing gear on board.
At the end of the trip, Capt. Jim will clean and fillet your fish to take home, so you’ll have plenty of fish to keep you going for days to come. Before the trip, just make sure to pick up a fishing license from any tackle store or a Walmart. Also feel free to bring any snacks and drinks you may want during the trip, and keep it in the onboard cooler. Fishtales Guide Service offers an authentic Louisiana fishing experience. Take advantage and come aboard!
