big thank y’all from southeast Louisiana


Went fishing on Saturday, August 27, 2016

Captain John was very helpful and friendly. Myself and 5 other guys were aboard the boat. We mainly did near shore fishing with live shrimp as bait. We had a slow start to the morning and we thought we were going to run into bad weather but captain John put us on some fish and it ended up being a beautiful day. We capped off the day by captain John bringing us to a honey hole where we wore the Redfish out.

Great way to bond with the boys. Even though the weather wasn’t in our favor, Capt Haller did everything he could to make sure we caught some fish. 20 red fish, a catfish, a lady fish, a bull croaker and a couple crabs later later, we called it a day. 
Capt. Haller was very amiable and I would recommend him to anyone. Honestly, if we hadn’t caught anything, it still would have been fun. Go!

My husband and I booked a charter on 1 Chasing Tail Charters with Captain John.  Our original trip was cancelled due to weather, but Captain John worked with us to rebook our trip.  We arrived and had a blast from start to finish.  Captain John and his son, Rhett, were great.  Friendly, personable, and had all the details down to a tee on what was needed for this trip.  We were having such a good time, we even stayed out an extra 2 hours….Captain John definitely knew where the fish were.  We caught over 30 fish and my husband was thrilled to catch a Triple Tail, which he had been trying to catch since he was a kid.  That was a true highlight of the day.  We will be in this neck of the woods in October and will book another charter with Captain John.  I cannot say enough good things about 1 Chasing Tail Charters!!  A big thanks to Captain John and Rhett for all their help and for making this trip memorable…no one even laughed when I casted like a “girl”.

Captain John was great. Our trip was suppose to be a month ago and weather had a different plan. Getting dates together for us to go isn’t easy and John worked with us getting dates together. He was also a good captain suggesting where to cast and tips along the way. He was not forceful in anyway and was relaxed and an enjoyable trip for sure.
