Home to some of the most celebrated food and music in the world, New Orleans and the surrounding area is also home to some of the world’s best fishing. They don’t call our state Sportsman’s Paradise for nothing!
Though there’s no shortage of excellent locations for inland fishing in Louisiana, Jefferson Parish offers some of the best thanks to its proximity to New Orleans, its location at the heart of Cajun country and its year-round angling.
There are freshwater crappies or sac-au-lait in winter; catfish, blues and flatheads in spring; redfish and tarpon in summer; and largemouth bass in fall (aka the LSU/Saints season).
As one of the first areas settled by the French-Canadian exiles from Nova Scotia today called Cajuns, Jefferson Parish and its waters have offered rich bounties to generations of fishers.
Bourgeois Fishing Charters led by Captain Theophile Bourgeois has redefined inland fishing in Louisiana. We don’t just offer expert fishing guides; we provide an unforgettable and immersive experience.
Our elegant and authentic lodging options include Cajun Vista, a historic plantation-style inn on the bayou with chef-prepared Cajun meals, a private dock and a screened porch, and the Cajun Chalet, which is accessible by boat only and perfect for corporate and family events.
Our boats are specifically designed for any kind of fishing — fly fishing skiffs that can glide across inches of water and large bay boats that can comfortably seat four anglers to fish the marsh and bayou inland waters.
All skill levels and preferences are welcome, whether you fly fish or use spin/conventional tackle. Every trip includes gear, bait, ice and fuel, drinks, sandwiches, fish cleaning and packing — but you’re more than welcome to bring you own gear if you wish!

We also offer a one-of-a-kind Island Adventure that will take you and your friends on a seaplane to a chain of uninhabited barrier islands 60 miles from New Orleans.
Wade fish for a day or two in the pristine waters of the Gosier and Chandeleur Islands, where anglers have pulled in 30-pound redfish!
