All the charters are private and usually depart at safe light. The trips last for about 6.5-7.5 hours, which allows you plenty of time to master the cast and make a great catch possible.

You will be fishing aboard a 24’ center console, which was fully uphauled in 2015. The boat’s 300 HP Mercury engine will power you and three fishing buddies to the hottest grounds in the area. As well as that, the modern navigational and fish-finding electronics will save your Tim while searching for fish.

All trips come with gear, tackle, and lures. When you’re done fishing, the captain will clean and bag the catch for you. All you have to do is purchase a fishing license, grab some food and drink, and hop on board!

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!

Big Dog Fishing Charters did a fantastic job from confirming our trip, to maintaining a fantastic camp and equipment, to Captain Chad working constantly and moving our fishing location to make sure we went home with an ice chest full of beautiful Redfish and great memories.

Awesome day in the Barataria area. Not as far a drive as Venice so that was great. Captain Steib was a great guy and put us on fish right away. We definitely recommend Captain Michael Steib and Big Dog Fishing Charters.
