Shallow Sights Guide Service LLC invites you to experience some of the best inshore fishing Louisiana has to offer! Captain Joshua Gisclair has been fishing ever since he was a child and knows all there is to know about the local fishery. With his help, you’ll have the best chance to experience the fishing trip of your dreams!

You’ll be fishing from his 18’ skiff that runs on a 50 HP Yamaha engine. There’s hardly a better option than a skiff when you’re looking to navigate these shallow waters. With enough room for a pair of anglers, bring a buddy down and get ready to make some memories together while you’re out on the water.

The sprawling marshes of Louisiana are teeming with fish throughout the year. This means that any time’s a good time to head out and target a number of different species. Your main targets for a day’s trip are likely to be Redfish and Black Drum, but there’s also Sheepshead and the occasional Seatrout to be found.

Capt. Joshua will provide you with all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a fun day of fishing. All you need to do is bring a valid fishing license and polarized sunglasses, as well as any drinks and snacks you’d like to have with you. Then you’re all set for an angling adventure to remember!
