If you’re looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime that you will never forget, Gills & Bills Guide Service can make it happen. Gills & Bills is a professional charter service in Lake Charles, Louisiana run by Captain Conlon Brashear. Captain Conlon is a very experienced guide that has been fishing the lake his entire life, and loves satisfying his customers by putting them on the fish.

Trips are aboard his 24 ft Haynie center console boat, which can accommodate up to four anglers. It is powered by a 225HP Mercury engine, and is equipped with GPS and fishfinder. Its spacious deck will allow you to tackle any of the species found in these waters in comfort.

Lake Charles is home to the best fishing estuary in Louisiana, known as Big Lake or Calcasieu Lake, which is known for its trophy Trout, big Bull Reds, and an abundance of Flounder. Other species you may encounter include Sheepshead, Drum, Tripletail, and more.

Gills & Bills Guide Service offer 6 hour day trips departing in the morning, as well as 4 hour afternoon trips. For those looking for something more relaxing, they also offer scenic boating trips up the Calcasieu River. Regular bookings hold up to four people per boat, but Capt. Conlon can also accommodate for more guests. All trips include fishing gear, tackle and bait, as well as catch cleaning. As an added bonus, all guests will receive a free shirt upon arrival.

Pick up at Hebert’s Marina or Calcasieu Point Marina is recommended, while pick up and drop off (by boat) can be organised from Lauberge and Golden Nugget Casinos.
