Drake Morvant

Member since July 2018 New Orleans, United States
Background
Growing up in the 80's I was blessed to experience countless fishing adventures out of our camp on Lake Pontchartrain. Many years of spending several days a week on the water from sun up to sun down helped me learn, on my own, the patterns of our wide variety of fish species here as well as tidal and wind effects on their behavior. Louisiana has such an incredible fishery and over time I realized sharing what we have is extremely fun! In 2017 I left a 15 year career in customer service to start a full time guide service. In short time an impressive amount of repeat business was established. Giving customers the fishing trip of a lifetime is the goal each and every day.
Techniques
During the summer months we catch speckled trout, redfish and bay snapper fishing the reefs in passes and lakes with drop shot rigs. Typically we'll start the morning off throwing live bait and once the bite gets going, switch over to artificial baits. Fall and winter months find us fishing closer to the dock for trout, big reds, and bay snapper. Spring time is when we catch the big trout in big numbers using mostly artificial baits
