Tushhog Fishing

Just listed

**LODGING IS INCLUDED IN THE TRIP PRICE**

Tushhog Fishing is here to show you the stunning waters of Empire, La. There are hundreds of square miles of inshore fishing, from bayous to bays and reefs to beaches. With Captain Peyton at the helm, you’ll benefit from years of knowledge and experience.

Species like Black Drum, Redfish, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and more are in the cards if you cast your line at the right time of year. On these trips, it’s common to use light tackle.

Families who love fishing together will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Snacks are never a bad idea so that everyone stays happy and energized!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 22’ Trophy bay boat with room for 4 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, along with lures and live bait.

You will need to buy a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.

Don’t forget to bring sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. There will be some drinks on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now, time to hit the water with Tushhog Fishing!

Had two trips this weekend. Fishing was tough for a while but we got the job done. Today we landed limits of trout. All were released at the clients request due to flying out. He got to experience "catching" for the first time. Keeper trout every cast! Saturday I treated a family to a bull red that we lost, a couple keeper reds and a few keeper trout and black drum. Overall a great weekend and everyone safely returning home.

Took out a couple from S.C. for part of their 50th anniversary celebration. Made some unforgettable memories. Each got hold of bull reds. We went 1 for 2. Trout were in abundance but we had a hard time getting the hook en em and fighting catfish due to the muddy water. Its only getting better day by day.
