Located just 30 minutes away from the beautiful city of New Orleans, Reel Southern Fishing Charters can navigate you through the beautiful pristine marshes of Hopedale, Delicroix, or Biloxi marsh and can assure you a good time and have some wonderful sightseeing along the way! Offering both daytime and evening fishing trips, they look forward to showing you the abundance of fish living in these scenic waters.

Captain Ryan will take you on an unforgettable adventure aboard his 2017 Avenger center console. At 24 ft in length, this boat will take up to five guests through the marshes safely and effectively, traveling silently up to the best fishing spots thanks to its trolling motor, and staying in place with a state of the art anchoring system. The boat is fully equipped with electronics to keep you in touch with the shore and help you find the best spots for the day.

Reel Southern Fishing Charters can accommodate any style of fishing, from fishing the shallow marshes chasing Redfish, to the bays targeting Speckled Trout, or on out to the rigs for your bigger fish. Captain Ryan can even set up the boat’s casting platform for sight casting or fly fishing for Redfish.

All the tackle and bait you will need for your trip will come included in the price, and Captain Ryan will gladly clean and bag your fish for you after the trip. Please make sure to purchase a valid Louisiana fishing license in time for your trip.

I’ve been an avid inshore fisherman for years, i love it and have a strong passion for it. I live for sunrises and sunsets on the bayou and putting people on fish as much as I can. The enjoyment I see from the people on my boat makes the work I do all worth the while.
