Let’s Catch Some Big Reds and Bite Crawfish Heads!

Come enjoy the Mississippi River and Louisiana Delta around Venice and Chandeleur Islands. Captain Jason Catchings and his staff are on the water cumulatively about 900 days annually. 

This area is considered the sport fishing capital of the world. Fly fishing, conventional and offshore fishing take place here daily. This locale is the most diverse saltwater and freshwater fishery in the world. You can catch redfish, speckled trout, flounder, snapper, tuna, and bass on the same day – what a feat!


You’ll experience three days of fishing, four nights of lodging, fabulous meals, guides, and non-alcohol beverages, for two guests. The meals are world-class from a true Louisiana chef and can include: lobster, filet mignon, tuna, gumbo, crab cakes, snapper, quail, and the area’s famous bananas foster!
