We were caught off guard by an unseasonably cold morning, and Jason saved the day by hooking us up with additional layers and wind protection for the ride out.

Jason knows the area like the back of his hand and has his go-to spots, but he also maintains a network of other captains that he can call on to see what’s biting and where. He was able to use this network to our advantage and we had a pretty awesome day, catching our max in redfish in a relatively short time.

My 13-year-old son and I had a blast despite the cold, Jason was a blast to hang out with and he always made sure we were in the right spot at the right time.

To cap off what was already a great day, we were able to take our catch to a restaurant on Bourbon Street in New Orleans that made us the meal of our lives out of our redfish under what is called the “Catch and Cook” program - check it out. Jason also has recommendations for local restaurants that will prepare what you catch.

Can’t go wrong.

Great trip.  Captain Barry was great with the two boys.  Lots of fun when boys catch more than dad!  Very pleasant trip and experience for everyone.  I highly recommend it.
