Louisiana Lagniappe Charters

Cypress Cove Road
Venice LA, United States

Louisiana Lagniappe Charters invites you down to the sprawling shallows of the Mississippi River Delta to explore the bayous and backwaters the area is known for. You also have the flexibility to fish different waterways around the New Orleans area depending on seasons and fishing reports.

Captain Scott Pelas will showcase the diverse fisheries the area is so blessed with. He will get you on Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and more in this shallow water wonderland. When the weather permits, you can even bounce out to an oil rig to pick up some Red, Mangrove, and Vermilion Snappers.

Whatever you do, you’ll be in safe hands aboard Capt. Scott’s 24’ North Star center console. Built in 2016, the boat can carry six guests securely and in comfort. She has a trolling motor to let you navigate the skinny waters with ease and a livewell to keep your bait fighting fit if you’re using it.

Capt. Scott is here to make your trip special, and he will go far above and beyond to do so. From arranging lodging on the water or in the city to preparing live bait for you ahead of the trip to save you valuable fishing time, he will do whatever he can to guarantee an enjoyable charter for you and your party.

So what are you waiting for? Head on down to Venice, LA and get ready for a great day on the water!
