About the Captain

I was born and raised on the Bayous of Lafitte (Barataria Basin). There is no greater way of life or joy than to share our heritage with those visiting New Orleans. I love to see the light in people's eyes as they land their CATCH - whether it is their 1st or 100th fish, it is always a pleasure to share a bit of the Bayou with others. I own and operate BIG DOG Fishing Charters and have a team of Captains waiting to show you a great time!

What a fun experience!! Better than what we expected. Chad was professional, friendly, helpful and fun. Helped my wife and daughter to make it an enjoyable day. Chad even took the time to take us sightseeing and found an alligator. I would recommend this for any family. Will go again if we are in the area.

Chad was great.  I don’t have a lot of patients fishing so he would get one on the hook and let me real her in, left handed real and all. My husband and I had a wonderful time. We will be back. Thanks.
