Marshland Adventures offers exclusive fishing trips on the Louisiana Coast and Delacroix waters. Fishing in this area is huge in the summer months with locals and visitors flocking to the water in order to catch a trophy fish. Marshland Adventures charter wants to show their guests exactly why Louisiana is known as the “Sportsman’s Paradise”.

Captain Steve Himel will guide your trip, just as he has done for over 20 years professionally. This kind and knowledgeable man will share his knowledge selflessly so that you and your party can have a memorable and enjoyable day on the water. And trust us, you will return year after year.

Your trip will start from Serigne Boat Launch located within close proximity of Breton Sound and its surrounding waters as well as deep inland marshes. The fish species you can target here include Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and more. You will use light tackle and live, natural and artificial baits.

Fishing is done aboard a 25-foot Custom center console originally built in 2014 with a capacity for 5 persons. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury Optimax engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, this boat is fast and reliable. Featuring a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the fish, this boat makes for a very productive fishing platform. It also features a livewell and an icebox for the catch.

Marshland Adventures provides all you need for a successful trip including fuel, rods, reels, tackle, bait, and ice. Once your trip is over, you can have a fish cleaning service, so bring an ice chest to transport it home in. Captain Steve will work hard to ensure your trip is enjoyable for you and your party.
