Louisiana Lagniappe Charters

(14) In demand!
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 with Louisiana Lagniappe Charters gave us a fantastic Redfish and Trout trip out of Port Eads. From the ride from Venice to the fishing his professionalism, equipment and personality were top notch. As a former Charter Captain I know the difficulty in creating a world class experience and Capt. Scott did it, even with chocolate waters and 20+ mph winds we still caught our limits of Reds, caught Bulls and Speckled Trout as a bounus. We will be back!
