Southern Coastal Outfitters

Slidell LA, United States

Southern Coastal Outfitters offers fly and light tackle fishing charters near the New Orleans, Louisiana area. They are able to accommodate you if you want to fish using either fly or light tackle, or a combination of both. The crew welcomes anglers of all skill levels and likes nothing more than to put someone on their first fly-caught Redfish.

You will fish aboard an 18-foot Beavertail flats boat that is newly built in 2017. Powered by a 60 HP Suzuki engine, it can develop a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots. It will take you to the productive fishing grounds quickly so you can get down to what matters - fishing.

The boat contains the necessary safety equipment and a GPS with many market productive spots. It will contain fly fishing equipment and lures in the form of flies, and leaders. You can keep one or two small Redfish if you advise your guide well in advance.

Apart from the Redfish, you can target Black Drum, Sheepshead, Largemouth Bass, Spotted Seatrout, and Tripletail.

They can also take you fishing on both sides of the Mississippi River and will take you to the areas where fishing is exceptional. Their goal is for you to have a great trip and tell all your friends about. 

Most of Southern Coastal Outfitters’  business is repeat customers and their friends, so all they ask is a chance to show you their Louisiana Marsh and all it has to offer. You’ll become a returning customer, too!
