Platinum Fishing Charters

For your next fishing trip in Louisiana, book a trip with Platinum Fishing Charters for the ultimate fishing trip. You’ll be looked after by Captain Daniel Francis Jr, who has been fishing these waters since he was a child. He knows the best places to go for the most productive day.

Hop on board the 24’ “Blue Wave,” a bay boat that excels in shallow waters. She’ll maneuver her way into those hard to reach areas, giving you that extra edge over your prey. On board are comfy seats, plenty of shade, and a cooler for your food and drinks to go into.

Capt. Daniel offers both private and shared trips. You can expect to target Catfish, Garfish, Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, and more. Whether this is your first catch ever or your hundredth, there’s a fish out here with your name on it!

Included in the price of your trip are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your catch. Live bait is also provided, and this will either be prepared before your trip or caught during.

You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the first line is cast. You should also bring snacks along, as you’ll definitely work up an appetite! Dress for the weather and bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat along, so you’ll be comfortable out on the water.

Book a trip with Platinum Fishing Charters for a fishing trip the whole family will love and be talking about for years to come! Let Capt. Daniel show you a good time today.
