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
  • Drinks
  • Sandwiches
  • Fish cleaning & Packing
