Platinum Fishing Charters– Calcasieu Lake

It’s time to book a trip with Platinum Fishing Charters today! Captain Daniel knows these waters like the back of his hand – he has been fishing here since he was a child. He looks forward to welcoming you on board and making sure you have an awesome day fishing with him.

Calcasieu Lake is the perfect location for your next fishing trip. There’s great fishing to be found, both inshore and nearshore. With a high salinity of water, the catch is always good, too. This is a touristic place that is welcoming and truly a wonderful place to set up lines.

The day will be spent on the 24’ bay boat. This boat is great for 4 anglers to fish from. It offers a stable ride and can get to hard-to-reach areas in shallow waters well. There is some seating and shade.

You can target a range of species on the private and shared trips he offers. This includes Redfish, Flounder, Catfish, Speckled Trout, Garfish, Sheepshead, and much more. Whatever your skill level, you’ll find a top fish out here.

You won’t need to worry about bringing your own gear along. Top quality gear from Shimano, Penn, and Daiwa are all included in the price. The captain will also provide live bait, or catch it during the trip.

You must buy a fishing license before the trip begins – you won’t be able to start without it. You should also bring your own snacks along. These can go into the captain’s cooler on board. Don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat, and you’re good to go.

All that’s left to do is book a trip with Platinum Fishing Charters today for an unforgettable adventure with Capt. Daniel.
