Everything you need will be ready for you on board, including rods, reels, and tackle. You’ll be fishing using a range of artificial lures provided by Capt. Mike. He’s more than happy to carefully clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, so you can expect to have a delicious meal upon your return home.

Captain Mike is a third-generation charter captain, and he's been fishing for as long as he can remember. He loves fishing in the saltwater lakes out of New Orleans, and enjoy putting people on the fish. "It's in my blood to be a fisherman. My grandfather was also a charter captain. I love to fish – plain and simple. I'm just as excited as my clients when they land a trophy fish."
