Born and raised on the Bayous of Lafitte (Barataria Basin) there is no greater way or life or joy than to share our heritage with those visiting New Orleans. I love to see the light in peoples eyes as they land their CATCH - where it is there 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!

We arrived at the dock a bit early, but were greeted by the captains and actually left a bit early.  Aldon put us on fish almost immediately.  We fished several different spots, including many that most boats drove right by—all of which had fish on them.  We caught trout all day long and a few bull reds as well.  Aldon was great with our kids, ages 13 and 9.  He is very low-key and personable.  A real treat to spend the day with.  We’ll be back to fish with them again.
