Bourgeois Fishing Charters

The Finest Bayou Fishing New Orleans Has To Offer

Fishing Charters

Captain Theophile’s Bourgeois Fishing Charters is the premier fishing destination in Louisiana. Chase big tailing reds and lunker trout in the heart of the Louisiana marsh, just 30 minutes south of New Orleans.

Our expert fishing guides are equipped with boats specifically designed for any type of fishing. Our fly fishing skiffs are built to run skinny and float in inches of water. We also have larger bay boats that comfortably fish 4 anglers. Anglers of all skill levels and preferences are welcome, whether you fly fish or use spin/conventional tackle. We can provide all of the gear you need, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own.

If you’re looking for a bucket list fishing experience, take a seaplane ride to the untapped waters of Chandeleur Islands. Bourgeois Fishing Charters is the only lodge to offer this adventure. Spend a day or two with your friends wade fishing for redfish and trout that seldom see a lure!

After your day on the water, relax with your friends in one of our beautiful lodges. Our professional chefs will prepare delicious Cajun-style meals to keep you charged and ready for another day of world-class fishing.

All trips include:

  • Gear
  • Bait
  • Ice & Fuel

"My group of three fished for two days at Bourgeois Fishing Charters. The first day was a fly-in with Captain Theophile. He worked so hard to make sure we got our limit and it was like fishing with someone you've known for years! There's a lot of local knowledge in that brain and he's hilarious to boot. Day two, we went out with Captain Taylor. He, too, worked very hard to make sure we limited and were satisfied with the trip. Everything about this organization is top-notch! Lodging is comfortable with lots of entertainment possibilities and the food is outstanding. We are already looking at calendars to see when we can return."

"Love fishing here with all the guides. It's like fishing with your buddy you haven't seen in years. Very accommodating for all. I'm a repeat customer for the price, the service, and the fish. The guides don't stop until you're satisfied with your trip (it's rare to find that ). Recommended for all ages and skill levels. Ive done the seaplane once and boat trip three times and they are all good times."
