Every year we receive a number of calls from clients who are looking for a quality fishing experience closer to home. Finding the time to plan a weeklong fishing trip these days is next to impossible.

But consider this – within an hour’s drive of the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street lies one of the premier saltwater fisheries in North America. It’s here in south Louisiana, where the Mississippi River meets the Gulf of Mexico. Nowhere else will you have the same opportunity to land a monster redfish.

I prefer to fish the Biloxi Marsh area from late Fall until early Spring, because the majority of the fishing in this area is for spotted sea trout, not redfish. As a result, the redfish are naïve, unpressured, and take flies readily. This greatly enhances your chance to catch that trophy redfish.

Another reason is that it is closer to New Orleans than almost any other fishery. However, if our reports indicate that fishing is better in a different area, or if a client wants to fish another area of South Louisiana, I can and do that very thing because I trailer my boats back and forth daily to the fishing grounds.

If you are coming to New Orleans for business and want to get some angling in while you are in town, I can take groups of up to 6 people for a quick trip to Breton Islands, to do some wade fishing for reds, trout, ladyfish, cobia and more.
