Marsh Mania Charters

Marsh Mania Charters is waiting to show you a good time both on and off the water in Metairie, Louisiana! Leave it to them to provide your family with a safe fishing experience and friendly service.

You will fish aboard a 24’ Skeeter powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine. Equipped with GPS, a fishfinder, and a wireless trolling motor, this craft makes for effortless marsh fishing. On board you will find all the fishing gear you need, including spinning reels, popping corks, and shrimp bait (live and dead). Up to 4 passengers can enjoy a smooth and safe ride aboard this boat, and children of all ages are welcome.

Your guide for the day is Capt. Shawn, a local angler who has been fishing since he was two years old. His specialty is fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout, which he will help you to target using several marsh fishing techniques. From time to time you’ll also reel in Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, and other fish biting in these waters.

You can keep your catch and store it in the ice box on board. Capt. Shawn will clean and fillet it for you at the end of the trip, so you can take it straight from the marsh to your dinner table!

Show up at the launch with your drinks and your lunch, and let Marsh Mania Charters take care of the rest!
