I have been fishing Lake Ponchatrain and it’s surrounding Bayous since I first could hold a rod. My passion became my career when I went to work for Captain Andy Jones over the summer of 19’. Captain Andy taught me everything there is to know about hunting the Kraken and I continue to heed his advice while on the water. While waiting for the Kraken to awaken from hibernation, we have become expert Redfish and Trout fisherman, finding the best spots across Lake Ponchatrain, Catherine, and Borgne to load a box full of fish for our customers.
