Reel Cajun Adventures

Reel Cajun Adventures offers you a timeless fishing experience, exploring Southern Louisiana’s shallow marshy waters in search of tailing Redfish and Seatrout. You can also head out to the more open inshore waters to target monster Bull Reds and tasty Mangrove Snapper. Whatever you do, you are in for a true Cajun experience, with a local guide and mile after mile of untouched waterways.

In order to get the most out of these shallow, winding waters you will need a nimble boat with a shallow draft and plenty of power. This is exactly what you get aboard Captain Roger’s 24’ Blazer Bay bay boat. She is able to cover great distances at speed thanks to her 250HP Yamaha engine, and can navigate even the shallowest backwaters when chasing tailing fish,

Reel Cajun trips last the whole day, allowing you to immerse yourself in this timeless waterscape and get to the best spots in search of huge fish. Captain Roger is a native of the Louisiana Cut Off, and knows every inch of this sprawling grass maze. He will make sure you hit your limits if you’re looking to fill the freezer or will focus on getting you that one huge fish if you want to beat your best.

All charters come with quality Penn tackle and plenty of live bait to make sure you pull in fish after fish. At the end of the day, all your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you, ready for the freezer or the frier. All you need to bring is your food, drinks, fishing license, and basic essentials like sunscreen and shades.

This is your chance to experience one of the largest and most productive estuary fisheries on the entire planet. Leeville is just an hour and a half from New Orleans, meaning you can easily enjoy the great outdoors alongside a city break or business trip. Anglers of any age or skill are warmly welcomed, so step aboard and get ready for action!
