Estuaries, bays, bayous, creeks, and lakes – southern Louisiana’s inshore waters have it all. Based out of Grand Isle, Hot Rod Guide Service will show you everything these productive waters have to offer. A lifelong fisherman, Captain Craig Bielkiewicz is passionate about passing on his knowledge to others. Having run trips in the area since 2004, he knows exactly where the fish like to hide, and promises to get you on them.
Discover these winding, shallow waterways aboard a 24’ Kenner center console. A light vessel, she’s perfectly adept at staying afloat in the skinny waters. Powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, you’ll fly across the water at a hair-raising 50 knots. Up to 4 guests can fish at once, without having to worry about impeding each other’s sight or movement. Bring your own snacks and drinks aboard and make the most of the captain’s cooler.
She’s also fully equipped for a productive day on the water. Your bait will be kept fresh in the live well, while you’ll be provided with Shimano and Daiwa rods and reels. You’ll focus on casting, with the potential to drift fish, bottom fish, spin, and pop to lure the bite of some exciting fish. Feel free to bring your own fly fishing equipment to test your skills, too, as you try to reel in delicious Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, and more.
At the end of your trip, Capt. Craig will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home, ready to cook right away. There’s no better taste than the fruits of your own labor, so let Hot Rod Guide Service show you the best Louisiana has to offer. All you need to do is grab your $10 license online or near the marina and you’re good to go. Come and make the most of these diverse waters!
