Team up with Speck Dat Charters and discover the stunning Louisiana marsh and prolific fishing it has to offer! Captain Brad D’Alfonso has over 2 decades of angling experience in the area and he’s happy to share that knowledge with his customers.

Capt. Brad loves his job and it translates into the first-class service he always strives to provide to everyone fishing with him. You’ll join him on his 24’ Blazer Bay boat that sports a 225 HP Yamaha engine and plenty of space to accommodate up to 5 people.

The vessel is loaded with everything you need for a productive day on the water, including a live bait well, a wireless trolling motor, and quality Daiwa fishing gear. Everyone on board can fish at the same time, and there’s a T-top to protect you from the unyielding Louisiana sun. All things considered, the boat is perfectly suited for the fishing conditions in the marsh.

When it comes to your catch, all the most popular saltwater species are there for the taking. All levels of anglers are welcome to hit the water with Capt. Brad, and he’ll go the extra mile to put you on brag-worthy prey. Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, and Black Drum are the favorite local catches and your primary targets.

When you come back to land, your guide will clean and bag everything you caught for your convenience. If you need a good recipe to prepare the fruits of your hard work, Brad is your guy.

On your side, you should show up with a valid Louisiana fishing license, and a supply of drinks and food to last the trip. Kids will have a great time with Capt. Brad, just make sure that they’re at least 5 years old, so that they can enjoy the experience fully.

Hop aboard Speck Dat Charters and let your memorable fishing adventure begin!

Captain Brad D'Alfonso grew up fishing the Louisiana marsh, sharing weekly phone calls for fishing plans and tactics with his dad and uncle to maximize their weekend fishing adventure. "We fished old school, no GPS and no trolling motor, but it taught us a lot." Captain Brad's love for fishing grew onto his own children and watching their eagerness and excitement, he decided to start guiding to share and teach others about the beautiful Louisiana fishing estuaries. "I always wanted fishing to be more than just a hobby or pastime, I love the wow effect the Louisiana marsh and fisheries have on our customers."
