Captain
Dracos Morvant

Member since July 2018 New Orleans, United States
Background
Most of my childhood was spent at our fishing camp on Lake Pontchartrain. After serving as an infantryman in the 101st Airborne I returned home to once again, pursue Redfish and Speckled Trout. Over time, I realized that sharing the experience of fishing in our scenic waterways was extremely rewarding. Few things compare to watching a young angler reel in a fish, or an avid fisherman catch their first Redfish. For these reasons, I began guiding. Before my guiding career began, I spent a decade in outside sales, where I learned the importance of customer service, which is a dying art these days. When you come aboard, the trip is all about you. I want you to enjoy yourself, be comfortable, and catch fish.
Techniques
During summer and early fall months, we'll target mostly Redfish in the Biloxi Marsh. Speckled trout can still be caught in the summer on the exterior of the Biloxi Marsh. Late fall to early spring, it is best to stay near and fish the Inter-coastal Waterway, Lake Catherine, and Lake Pontchartrain. Bait is recommended on every trip, especially in the fall and winter. Gold spoons, chatterbaits, and spinner baits are deadly on Redfish in the warmer months.
