Blaine Townsend ([--].) owns the “Sportsman’s Paradise” (www.redfishflyfishing.com) near Chauvin, LA. He is the primary fishing guide, but does contract with others. His wife Connie manages the lodging and restaurant. Hurricane Gustav had put the restaurant in under six feet of water, and it was still closed when we arrived in November, 2008. The Sportsman’s Paradise offers two classes of rooms. “Basic Level” rooms holds three twin beds, and are located adjacent to the restaurant. The building is made of cinder block construction dating back from the mid-1950’s when Blaine’s father built the place. The rooms are indeed very clean, it has been repainted, no TV and is offered at $60 per night. The room lighting seemed pretty minimal, so might want to bring a head lamp if you plan to play cards or read in the room.

The “premier” lodging is a new mobile home placed on raised pilings that can hold up to six people at $200 per night. The trailer is about 50 yards from the restaurant. Connie told us that if we stayed there we’d have to buy our meals in Houma (45 minutes away.) So we decided to stay in Houma, and drive to Dulac and Chauvin each morning to fish. For some unknown reason Connie did not tell us about the lodging and meals available at Dulac Charters. Do bring you own drinks and lunch, Blaine does not provide them.

Blaine guided our trip, and he did work hard to get us to fish. We caught about a dozen fish between us, the largest fish was eight pounds. We fished to 3:00, and by then the fish had stopped biting, so we were fine with that. Blaine charged us $500 or the day’s fishing.
