Epic Fishing Charters is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Explore the stunning waters off the coast of Lousiana with Epic Fishing Charters! You’ll go out with Captain Austin Ourso – a local angler who’s been guiding for 7 years now. He has trips that meet the need of every angler, so you’ll have fun with him no matter whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fisherman.

Capt. Austin will take you out on his 36’ Fountain center console boat, accommodating up to 4 anglers, so it’s great for a friends-and-family adventure. It’s powered by triple 400 HP Mercury Verado engines, which means it’ll take you to the fishing grounds in no time. The navigational electronics will help put you on the fish, and there’s a private toilet for your convenience.

The waters in Louisiana are known as some of the most prolific fishing spots in the world. You’ll target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Shark, Cobia, Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Swordfish, Grouper, and Sheepshead. Whatever you’re after, Capt. Austin will make sure to maximize your chances and you leave here with a smile on your face.

He’ll provide you with all the fishing equipment you need – Daiwa rods, reels, and tackle. You’ll be fishing using live bait, either bought or caught before the trip. If you want to take your catch home, he’ll clean and fillet your fish at a fee – $25 for inshore trips, and 40 cents per pound on offshore trips.

Kids are welcome to join in on the fun, so bring the little ones for a trip of their lifetimes, making some long-lasting family memories. There’s a first mate on board when it comes to offshore trips to make sure everything runs smoothly and that everyone is having fun. He works for tips, and the usual amount is 20%.

Make sure to bring a fishing license, as well as food, drinks, seasickness medicine, sunscreen, and rain gear, and come have a serious adventure!

Join Epic Fishing Charters and have a trip of a lifetime on the beautiful waters of Lousiana!

Capt. Austin is a local angler who's spent the last 7 years taking people out and putting them on the fish. He has always been pretty good at fishing and he didn't like doing anything else, so he decided to follow his heart and guide people for a living. What he enjoys the most about his job is seeing kids catch fish. It's all about the kids, and putting smiles on their faces.
