JLH Charters Grand Isle – SS 24'

With experienced and passionate angler Captain Shaw Couevas behind the helm, Jean Lafitte Harbor Charters will have you fishing like a Louisiana local in no time!

Capt. Shaw likes to say that he was raised in the bayou, which means that a love for fishing runs through his veins. He wouldn’t want to do anything else with his time, and can’t wait to guide you around one of the most incredible inshore fisheries in the world.

Departing out of Grand Isle, you’ll have speedy access to some seriously fish-filled waters. And the fish on offer are definitely worth boasting about: you’ll target prized species such as Redfish, Sheepshead, Catfish, Garfish, Trout, and Black Drum.

Depending on the trip you opt for, your captain will have trying out a variety of techniques favored by Louisiana locals. During the day, you’ll try out light tackle fishing, bottom fishing, and trolling, whereas night fishing is reserved for something a bit more unusual – bow fishing!

No matter which adventure takes your fancy, the best way to explore those waters stays the same: on board one of the world’s most versatile boats, alongside an experienced captain and crew.

The vessel in question is a 24’ Swamp Shark jon boat, capable of accommodating up to 6 guests. She’s decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, as well as fish-focused amenities to help you locate and hook your desired catch.

Capt. Shaw will provide all the necessary fishing equipment for you, including bow fishing gear, as well as bottled water. You can purchase your fishing license at the marina, too. As you’ll be joined on your adventure by a seriously experienced and friendly crew, willing to go above and beyond to make your adventure incredible, a tip of $50–100 is expected.

No matter whether you’re armed with a rod or a bow, Jean Lafitte Harbor Charters will stop at nothing to make sure your time on the water is truly special. Come aboard and discover what true Southern-style fishing really looks like!
