Whiskey Bayou Charters

Whiskey Bayou Charters is an inshore guide service located in the fishing village of Delacroix, LA, which is a 45-minute drive from downtown New Orleans. It is owned and operated by Captain Joe Ezell, whose passion for fishing goes back to his childhood years. Nothing will make him happier than to see you catch some nice fish with his help.

You will be fishing aboard a 25’ Majek bay boat that’s powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, making it able to develop a top cruising speed of an impressive 50 knots. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation gear, the boat also has a live well for bait, and a wireless trolling motor for when you need to run silent.

Captain Joe doesn’t do anything shorter than a full day trip because he wants to be able to fully devote himself to his guests, and make sure you have the best possible experience. A standard trip involves fishing the inshore waters for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. Captain Joe will prepare the live bait prior to your arrival so you can focus on the most important part, fishing.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price, and anything you catch will be cleaned and filleted after the trip for your convenience. You will need to bring along a valid fishing license that can be bought online, and a pair of polarized sunglasses comes highly recommended.

I have always loved the outdoors and fishing from a early age. I began my adventure balancing a old tackle box and Zebco 33 on the handle bars of my bike while fishing every local farm pond in my community as I grew up. After getting my license, a 64 Ford pickup and a 16 foot johnboat became my weapons of choice as I fished every state lake within a half a days drive. I had been on a few inshore charters while working and bought a bay boat in 2012. After taking many of my friends fishing I discovered that I truly enjoyed helping people catch fish. I look forward to fishing with you.
