Rou-ga-rou Bowfishing Charter, Llc

According to an old Cajun legend, the Rougarou, a creature with a human body and the head of a wolf or dog, is said to prowl the Louisiana swamps and greater New Orleans area. Captain Todd Usey aims to offer those brave enough a chance at an authentic Cajun experience following in the footsteps of this legend.

His adventures will take you deep into the Louisiana swamp where you’ll be able to test your skills against several prized fish species. And who knows, you may even get the chance to see Rougarou itself!

You will be fishing from the front deck of the “Brandy Kay”, a 2017 20’ custom-built aluminum boat, powered by twin 35 HP surface drive motors. Outfitted with a special lighted deck with 12 LED lights. This vessel has been purpose-built with this fishery in mind and will allow you to chase the local fish wherever they swim.

The lighted deck will light up the marsh where you will target, Redfish, Garfish, Sheepshead, Catfish, Drum, and Flounder. You will not only be able to see your prey but other animals that live in the local marsh as well. All trips are bow fishing only, however, no prior experience with the technique is necessary. The captain will provide each guest with all the necessary gear and training they’ll need to have a fun and productive trip.

All that’s up to you is to find an opening in the calendar, book a trip and buy a Lousiana fishing license. After that, grab a cooler with drinks and snacks and your Cajun adventure will be ready to start!

Once you find a shallow pond, the captain will turn on the lights and the water will come alive with Alligator Gar, Catfish, Redfish and others. All you have to do now is grab a bow and be ready for your target to come into the lights.
