Pelican State Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in Barataria. Pelican State Charters are a USCG certified charter service that specialize in inshore saltwater fishing in the Batartaria Basin marsh system. Located just 40 minutes south of New Orleans, they are ideally situated to offer diverse fishing trips around Lafitte and Barataria.
The 23 ft Ranger boat was chosen by the captain because of its extremely smooth ride. The boat is powered by a 225 HP Honda engine and is equipped with a trolling motor and anchoring system to give you the best chance of catching a variety of inshore species. It also features a live bait tank and seating for up to five anglers.
Pelican State Charters primarily fish with artificial lures, and find Gulp!® lures particularly effective, although you are welcome to fish with live bait at an additional cost. They use Penn reels and All Star rods to fish for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder and other inshore species, depending on the season and the conditions on the day.
All rods, reels and terminal tackle that you will need throughout your trip are included in the price, and some snacks and drinks are also provided by the captain. Any fish you decide to keep will also be cleaned and filleted for you free of charge at the end of the day. All you need to bring is your lunch and a valid Louisiana fishing license.
Captain Dave will provide an informative and enjoyable trip for all levels of angler. Don’t forget to ask him for his blackened Redfish recipe before you go home!

We finally got a clear day after snow and sleet. It started out cold in the am,but Dave hunted down a warmer spot where the fish were more than ready to dine. We caught our limit,released all but a few good eats, and fished until we had to depart. This is what makes it worthwhile-excellent crew who communicate really well about conditions ahead of time;great boat that is smoothe and fast for getting to a good spot;willingness to work through logistics that fit our schedule.
