Clark Charters invites you on guided saltwater fishing trips on Calcasieu Lake and its tributary waterways. The charter is based out of Lake Charles, Louisiana, and operated by Captain Eric Clark. He has fished the Louisiana waters since he was a child and spends more than 200 days per year on the lake.

Captain Eric will take you fishing aboard a 21’ Nautic Star center console with a capacity for up to 4 persons. The vessel was built in 2013 and is powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine. The boat is fast and reliable, featuring safety equipment such as life jackets, fire extinguishers, first-aid equipment, and a CPR-trained captain. There is also a GPS onboard used to locate the best fishing spots.

Fishing for trophy Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder on Lake Calcasieu is easy with live and artificial baits, and with a seasoned local captain. You will have all the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, and baits. All you need to bring is a fishing license and some food and drinks and enjoy your fishing adventure.

Clark Charters can accommodate all types of anglers including families, couples, corporate groups, and groups of buddies looking to hammer some fish. Children are most welcome as Captain Eric is very patient and loves to teach kids how to fish, and enjoys seeing their faces light up as they catch their first fish!

All you need to do now is set aside a date, get your group together, and book a trip that best suits your needs. Then, simply start counting down the days until your next angling adventure!
