The environment is beautiful, salt water species, some fresh water mixed in depending on salinity levels means you never know what you.may catch. The lakes and bayous are huge...dont forget bug spray ( though capt. Had some to use)

Absolutely, fishing with captain Brad made it so you just purchase your license (online, quick and easy) then show up and everything you need is there. Take a cooler if you plan on keeping it you can buy at the small shop at the dock.

Bring bug spray. The mosquitos swarm for about 30 minutes at dusk. Other than that. Book with Captain Clinton deArmas. He is knowledgeable and great at communicating exactly how to get the fish in the boat. You'll have a great time.

Get a great Captain like Brad who knows the area you are fishing. Be prepared for the heat of July. We made sure to select a Captain with a boat that had shade. Dress appropriately for the sun and heat of July. We had a blast and caught a lot of fish even in July.

According to some of the locals and a couple of captains that I spoke to, the fishing around New Orleans has been tough this year, however I would not have known that, as I had an excellent day on the water and caught a variety of fish.

Make sure you find a good guide like captain Clinton who's eager to share generational fishing knowledge, clean and bag all the fish, and be ready to have a great time. In addition, don't forget the sunscreen protection.

Listen to your Captain. They are the expert. They know the water. The fish. The right bait and the right technique for fishing in Louisiana

The weather was windy and rough and our fish catching was 3 fish in the first 6 hours. The capt extended 3 more hours and we caught 18 more....it was a lot more fun in those 3 hours!

Listen to the captain. Captain Clinton knew where to fish, how to fish the spot, and how to read the water for the best chance.

It was cold and windy with no insects and the overcast sky made it very comfortable. By far a great time to go fishing.

Just remember it's called fishing and not catching. A great Captain can put you on fish, share their knowledge and give you a great experience.

Talk to your guide ahead of time about the weather and what clothing to bring. Winter months may take several lays

Call Captain Brad D’ Alphonso now! He books dates like 3-4 months in advance. He has patience the only quality that makes an excellent fisherman. Not all Captains are patient.

It's good in the morning and possibly evening but once it's hot they stop biting. Hydrate early and often. It was recommended to go October thru January for speckled trout.
