Member since May 2014 Barataria, United States
Background
Born and raised on the Bayous of Lafitte (Barataria Basin). There is no greater way of life or joy than to share our heritage with those visiting New Orleans. I love to see the light in people's eyes as they land their catch - whether it is their 1st or 100th fish, it is always a pleasure to share a bit of the Bayou with others. I own and operate Big Dog Fishing Charters and have a team of Captains waiting to show you a great time!
Techniques
Fishing style and technique varies depending on conditions and also client's abilities. From throwing Shrimp to Artificial / Sight Casting to dropping a line we do it all!
