Louisiana charter fishing like everything else in the state was decimated by hurricane Katrina. Most of the charter fishing in Louisiana was put on hold for the sake of putting lives and homes in New Orleans back together. At the time nobody really wanted to fish after such a disaster, fishing became secondary to surviving. But as life goes on so does the fishing and the Louisiana fishing guides and charter boat Captains put their boats and charter businesses back together and opened up for business. We all saw what happened to Lake Pontchartrain and how it flooded New Orleans. As terrible as it was there are now Louisiana guides fishing the lakes and waters surrounding New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana too. Louisiana anglers are serious about their fishing and display a diehard passion for fishing not seen in to many other states. Fishing in Louisiana is part of life and not even the most powerful hurricane on record could take it away. From Louisiana sport fishing in the Gulf of Mexico to bass fishing in the many inland lakes and streams Louisiana fishing is back and here to stay.
Listed below are a few Louisiana Fishing Guides And Charters.
Louisiana Sport Fishing Charters
Sport Fishing in the Gulf off the New Orleans coast means big time Louisiana charter fishing adventure. It means hour long heart pounding and adrenaline pumping fights with the big game fish that inhabit the sparkling blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The Louisiana sport fishing charters know their business and when you hire Captain or fishing guide in Louisiana you can most likely count getting back to the dock with fish in the boat.
Grass lines, reefs, oil rigs, sunken shrimp boats and other wrecks are just some of the places a veteran Louisiana charter fishing Captain will take you for your trophy fish. Whether it’s fishing for marlin, grouper, tuna, or one of many Louisiana saltwater big game fish, you can count on your experienced Louisiana sport fishing charter to make sure you have a successful Louisiana fishing trip with “true” fishing stories that you can talk about until you make it back to Louisiana for your next sport fishing vacation.
Louisiana Fishing Guides
If Louisiana offshore charter fishing is not interesting to you then maybe you would like to fish inshore, closer to the coast and beaches. There are plenty of guides that fish inshore and there is plenty of shallow water action, especially if you like to fish with light tackle. Louisiana fishing guides frequently go after big redfish, speckled trout, snapper, and a wide variety of fish that call the inshore waters of Louisiana home. Fly fishing the southern Louisiana marshes for tailing redfish is just one style of fishing the local Louisiana saltwater fishing guides offer. There is so much more exciting and fun ways to fish you will have to experience it first hand to appreciate what Louisiana saltwater fishing is all about. Rest assured you will enjoy yourself and when you hire an experienced Louisiana fishing guide to lead your trip your chances of having a successful and memorable fishing trip goes up ten fold.
Louisiana Bass Fishing, Louisiana Freshwater Fishing Guides
Everybody knows about the great saltwater fishing in Louisiana but if you are more interested in freshwater fishing or to be more precise Louisiana bass fishing then you are in luck. Louisiana bass fishing has a tremendous following with lots of diehard bass masters and professional bass fishing guides. Louisiana is loaded with bass fishing hotspots. You could choose to take a guided fishing trip on Lake Concordia, a lake that has phenomenal bass fishing with large mouth bass frequently topping 10 pounds. Another popular bass hot spot in Louisiana is Turkey Creek where bass over 8 pounds are common. I guess what matters most is where you will be staying in Louisiana but where ever you find yourself rest assured there are decent lakes and plenty of Louisiana fishing guides to put you on the fish.
