The crew is led by Captain Andy Cook who’s been fishing for many years and knows the waters of Louisiana like no one else. He is a kind and patient man who loves taking whole families with children out and teaching them reel in the fish of their dreams.

You will fish aboard his 38 foot Fountain offshore sport fishing boat, powered by three 300 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots.

Once you return to the dock, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home and make a lovely dinner. Nothing beats eating your own catch after a big fight and all the energy invested into reeling it in!

Capt Andy Cook was top notch. The day we went was forecast for heavy seas and all the other Capts. cancelled their trips. As i said it was forecast for heavy seas and Capt. Cook explained the conditions to us and it was our decision to go and he said it was his decision to turn back if he he thought it was unsafe. We went and it was rough out there but Capt Cook was more then able to handle the conditions.
Now both of us are former navy and everything was handled in a safe/professional manner. Might have been a little uncomfortable with the seas, but it was worth it. Big tune are worth it. Capt. Cook put us on hot spots and we got two nice yellow fins 70lb+ and 80lb+. Filled each of our refrigerators and they taste great. would have been nice to have smooth seas, but you have to talk to the man upstairs for that.
I highly recommend Capt Cook Charters to everyone. It was a great experience, and that comes from a couple 78 year old f*rts. Wish i could send pictures, but quite frankly i don’t know how.
I might add that i am an amateur when it comes to fishing but Capt. Cook was a great teacher. I would recommend this trip for children, but not with the seas we had.

My friend an I chartered with Captain Andy Cook. We fished on Andy’s 38 foot Fountain.  It was a extremely fast boat, and cut thru the chop well.  We were at the fishing grounds before anyone else.  The captain knew exactly what to do.  We caught our limits of yellowfin tuna within a few hours.  Four fish over 100 pounds, with the largest weighing in at 172 pounds!  It was an awesome day of fishing that exceeded expectations.  At the dock, the fish was cleaned beautifully.  It’s delicious!

Our trip was fantastic.  Capt. Andy put us on some excellent tuna.  Our average was about 70 pounds.  We caught 6 and lost 3 (not his fault).  He new where they were and took us there.  At one time we had 3 tuna on the lines.  It was my 14 year old boys first time tuna fishing, and he will be back with Capt. Andy again next year for sure. We limited out on Red Snapper.  Our trip was fantastic. Highly recommend Capt. Andy for all your fishing needs.
