Louisiana Lagniappe Charters

235 Cypress Cove Rd.
Venice LA, United States

Captain Scott Pelas will showcase the diversity of fishing the Mississippi River Delta and surrounding areas.  We will target speckled trout,  redfish, and flounder and when the weather permits bounce out to an oil rig to pick up some red, mangrove, and vermilion snappers. We have the flexibility to fish different waterways around the New Orleans area depending on seasons and fishing reports.

Captain Scott can arrange for all transportation and lodging needs. Lodging is available on the water, local fishing lodges,  as well as the Historic French Quarter to name a few.

If fishing is not your thing and you would enjoy a nice boating experience on the bayou to watch the sun go down we offer that also . Maybe a cruise down the Mississippi River to a remote location for a nice dinner and overnight stay at Port Eads,La.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you an fishing experience that you will be telling your friends about for years.

Fair winds and following seas!

Capt. Scott put us on the fish. We had 53 trout averaging 3 pounds each by 9:30. I caught the largest speck of my life, weighing 6 lbs 12.8 oz. We then jumped offshore and had a limit of red snapper in minutes. We then headed back to Port Eads and chef Travis cooked up some snapper topped with a crawfish sauce. The best fishing day ever!!

I booked a 2-day trip with Captain Scott for my Dad’s 73rd birthday. I don’t have many opportunities to hang out with my Dad so it was really important that he had a great time. We stayed at Port Eads and fished all around. Captain Scott put us on the fish (mostly Red-fish) and we tore them up.  My Dad caught the majority so that was cool.
Captain Scott was a great host. He took care of everything from rigging our lines and baiting our hooks to netting the fish, measuring them and cleaning them too.
The 24’ boat and fishing gear were all in new condition. There was plenty of room on the boat so we brought a cooler full of snacks and drinks. We ate full course meals at Port Eads. The whole trip was a blast. Thanks for taking care of us. We won’t forget this one.
I definitely recommend to anyone to book a trip with Captain Scott.
