Captain
Chad Rudolph

Member since August 2015 Venice, United States
Background
Born into and raised by a family of fishermen in Venice, LA, Captain Chad has always been on the water growing up. Despite this, he claims that every trip is like his first day on the water. He wants you to experience why he's a fishing guide – that is, to put you on fish and to enjoy the beauty of the Mississippi Delta and the Gulf of Mexico.
Techniques
Seasonal live shrimp/croakers for big trout and bull redfish. Carolina rig for rig fishing snapper. Popping cork for inland fishing trout and young redfish. Pogies/dead shrimp for rig fishing.
