ADVENTURES

Our inshore fishing trips are some of our customers’ favorite. Most of our customers book an offshore trip on day one and then go inshore fishing on day two. Our inshore fishery is no slouch compared to the offshore trips; in fact, it is quite the opposite. Not many places in the world can offer trophy bull redfish, and trout, all in the same area. Our inshore trips take customers for a relaxing ride through the Mississippi River. The waters are protected and always calm.

Louisiana redfish are a prized catch, representing the region’s cultural and culinary identity. Louisiana redfish, also known as red drum, are recognized by their distinctive coppery-red color and inhabit estuaries and coastal waters. Redfish are popular among anglers, contributing significantly to recreational and commercial fishing. Conservation measures, including slot limits and catch-and-release programs, are in place to ensure the sustainability of redfish populations.
