All the tackle will be ready for you on the boat and is included in the prices. You’re covered for rods, reels, terminal tackle, and lures. There will be light snacks, sports drinks, and water on board, so the only thing you should bring are fishing licenses.

Captain James Kennedy's been fishing waters of South Louisiana his entire life. He's a native of this area and a Coast Guard licensed captain. As a young boy, he had a dream of fishing professionally. After many years of fishing in tournaments he succeeded in qualifying for the 2006 Bassmaster Classic and spent the next few years fishing nationally as an Elite Series fisherman. This was a milestone achievement he would always remember. Spending so much time on the Louisiana local waters, he's become an expert on them. Today, he enjoys the most taking other people out and watching them catch fish. Reach out to Captain James and together enjoy unique fishing in South Louisiana!
