We are a very fun and positive fishing charter! We are a fleet of Louisiana native guides that really know the waters and will put you on some serious fish catching action! Easy day trips out of New Orleans. Inshore, offshore, marsh, oil rigs, islands you name it we will go there! Redfish, speckled trout, snapper, cobia, sharks, mackerel, flounder, sheepshead, and many other species are caught depending on season. Captain Markham Dickson also speaks German if your group needs that service he can run it personally. Big groups or small (1-60 people) we will make sure y'all have a good time! 1-6 people per boat and 10 boats at the ready!
