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!
