Customer comfort and satisfaction are something they pride themselves for putting a priority on . Highly enthusiastic Capt. Adam Shields, who has been fishing since he was a kid, will do his best to give you his tips and tricks for getting the right bite.

Step aboard a fresh new Ranger Bay 2510 center console. It is powered by a 300 HP Mercury Verado and can go up to 45 knots. Running a length of 25’, it boasts top of the line fish finding equipment and amenities including a restroom inside the console for privacy.

With this charter, you can try your luck in several inshore and nearshore fishing spots of lakes in the area of Slidell. You will be targeting Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder, and Sheepshead using spinning gear with live bait and lures under a popping cork or on the bottom.

Everything provided on your trip includes rods/reels/tackle, live bait, fuel, ice, bottled water, and fish cleaned and bagged ready for you to take home. You just need to bring food, drinks (other than water), a small ice chest to bring home your catch, and a fishing license (a $10 charter passenger license can be purchased online).
