Hackberry Guide Service

In the nearshore waters of Louisiana, you can fetch yourself some superb game.Captain Gary Peloquin has been guiding people on these waters for 30 years and knows exactly where to take you for a splendid day of fishing.

He’ll take you out on his customized 24’ Haynie bay boat. This lightweight craft is powered by a huge 300 HP Suzuki engine that can take you up to high speeds of 55 knots. These flying speeds mean that you’ll be able to reach the region’s best fishing spots in no time at all.

Captain Gary tends to use light tackle when you’re on the hunt for the best fish in the area. Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout are among your most likely catches in these waters. He’ll clean the catch for you so it’s ready to be put straight in the pan or oven once you’re home.

You’ll use light tackle for this fishing and there’s a good range of rods for you to select. Lures are provided but live bait can also be provided with a $45/55 surcharge, which will be collected from the marina before your trip.

The drinks are included in the price, but you’ll need to take some food, sunshades, suncream, and rain gear with you. You’ll also need to get a $10 fishing license before your trip that can be bought at the marina or online. Once you’ve got all your stuff, all you need to do is wait for the fish to bite.

    Those a bit more serious about fishing will not be fazed by this early rise for angling on the lake. The likes of Trout, Redfish, and Flounder are the species that you'll hopefully enjoy for lunch once you return.

    An afternoon on the lake is the perfect expedition for those new to fishing or for children. Not only will kids love the fishing in this area but they'll also love the thrill of Captain Gary's lightning-fast boat. While the fishing for Redfish and Flounder is relaxed, you've got the option for having a blast going in between the best spots on the lake.

Captain Gary has been fishing in the waterways of South Louisiana for his whole life. He loves it so much that he couldn't dream of a job not doing it so he decided to become a fisherman. He loves to meet customers from all walks of life and the challenge that the job brings. His favorite challenge though is trying to catch more fish than you!
