“Perfect day fishing”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

What an amazing day fishing. Casey was incredibly nice and very knowledgable. I've never fished with someone that understood a fish so well. Great food, nice people and lots of fish!

“Great Fishing in Louisiana”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

First, I want to thank James and Captain Brock, as well as everyone else at Griffin who made the fishing trip run without a hitch. We got there the night before and slept in one of the rooms. We then got up around 5:45 had a great sausage and eggs and biscuit breakfast. Got on the water and Captian Brock led us to some good fish holes. We caught redfish, blag drum, trout and sheephead (we threw them back...). Captain Brock was fun to talk, had a vast knowledge of the area and was very professional. We will use him again. Then we got back and he cleaned the fish and we were served a terrific lunch (red beans and rice)! Thanks again!!

“A beautiful and well organized fishing trip”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

My father and law and I had a great time w/ Griffin Fishing Charters. We checked in the evening before our fishing trip, and were spoiled by Carla's cooking: gumbo and baked/stuffed chicken. The next morning we left at 6 am w/ our fishing guide, Nick, who knew the waters like the back of his hand. I don't know much about fishing, which didn't matter. He baited the hook and even did the casting for me at times. He always helped pull the fish into the boat, measured them, and saved the ones we wanted. Afterwards, we had a wonderful plate of jambalaya while Nick filleted the fish. We spent 6 hours on the water, and I really enjoyed the wildlife: plenty of pelicans (see my photos) as well as other birds in their natural habitat. I strongly recommend this company.
