Gripping Lips Guide Service takes you fishing around the rich Louisiana delta in search of Redfish, and Speckled Trout. These waters fish well throughout the year, and Captain Shane has the experience and skills to make the most out of your day out.

You will be fishing around the Myrtle Grove and Lafitte area, well-known for its Redfish population. We really recommend catch and release to help preserve the redfish population, but clients are allowed to keep fish.

The Myrtle Grove area produces nice fish year-round. In the summertime, you will head out in the early morning to get the fish before the heat. Winter months are productive as well. There are schools of big Red you can get around the shallow waters. And, the scenery is striking. So you better get your camera ready when fishing with Capt. Shane.

Capt. Shane has a deep understanding of the local fisheries. He’s been fishing from an early age and has competed in a number of tournaments at the national level. And if you’re a novice angler, you won’t be after the captain briefs you on the techniques.

The boat is a brand new 2022 Spyder Vapor. It drafts in only seven inches of water, and can get back where the big girls roam. The boat features a set of navigational electronics, as well as an ice box, a live bait well, and safety gear.

Gripping Lips Guide Service now accepts major credit cards. You’ll find all the tackle and gear you need on board. At the end of the trip, Capt. Shane will clean your catch for you.

Capt. Shane also films all his trips for his YouTube channel, this means you’ll be able to re-watch your exciting fishing adventure whenever you want!

So grab your favorite snacks and drinks, a camera, sunglasses, a cap, and sunscreen, then come aboard for a trip to remember. It’s a ride you’re sure to enjoy!

Hello, my name is Capt. Shane and I own Gripping Lips Guide Service. We mostly fish the waters south of the New Orleans area. This includes Myrtle Grove, Lafitte, the Four Bayou area, and Grand Isle. We specialize in inshore fishing for giant Redfish and Speckled Trout. Shallow-water sight fishing is our specialty, and we excel in that type of fishing. The Spyder Vapor drafts in 7 inches of water. If fly fishing is your thing, this is the charter for you.
