High Tide Charters

High Tide Charters is run by Captain Andrew out of Lake Charles, Louisiana. He is a full-time guide in the Lake Charles area and has spent his whole life on the water around these parts. He’s caught fish in just about every stretch of water from Calcasieu to Sabine Lake and the Gulf of Mexico. He specializes in light tackle inshore fishing for Speckled Trout and Redfish.

Most of the year is spent fishing Redfish and Trout, and depending on the season you will also chase for Flounder, Cobia, and Tripletail. During wintertime, the coveted trophy sized Speckled Trout is a popular target. Whether you want to chase schooling Trout for fast action fishing, sight cast Redfish in the shallow Louisiana marshes, or go nearshore to try your hand at fighting a big Cobia or Tripletail, Captain Andrew has you covered.

You will be fishing out of a 2017 Haynie 25’ bay boat powered by a 350 HP Mercury Verado. The boat is built to ensure a safe ride and comfortable, spacious fishing room. It also includes all the necessary navigation and safety equipment, as well as a live well for bait.

Captain Andrew also offers pickup from the casinos in Lake Charles if you would like to stay there and be able to walk right out to the dock and head out on your trip. If you’re looking for an authentic experience in fishing on and around the Louisiana coast, he’s the man for the job. Those looking to bring their catch home should bring along an ice box if they have one. Apart from that, make sure to bring sunglasses, don’t forget your fishing license and you’ll be fishing before you know it.

Fishing has always been my biggest passion. While growing up all I could think about was my next trip. Now my dream has come true being a full time fishing guide able to spend everyday on the water and share it with others.
