The Punkrock Pirate, The Cuisnier, & The Harvester
This past week, we had the pleasure of having the crew from Bubba down to shoot a few days in the life on the isle of Barataria. We went over the origin of Bourgeois Fishing Charters, from my Dad’s vision of what this company would one day be and how he got there from humble beginnings, with nothing more than a boat and a dream. We covered the tragedy that simultaneously took him away from us and thrust me into the helm of this massive operation and what it’s like to navigate, carrying on such a highly revered and painstakingly crafted legacy all the while maintaining and continuing my own career and creative pursuits outside of fishing.
These were just a few of the interesting people who we sat down with to share a bit about the man my father was.
I wanted to give these Bubba guys a full immersion in the splendor of life on bayou time; the ways of our people, and the strong sense of community that makes this place so special. We shared meals, told them stories and experiences all truly unique to this small town that I call home. We got up in the seaplane and fished the Chandeleur Islands where my dad spent so many of his days. I took a break to play a song on the floats of the plane amidst a backdrop of breaking waves and cawing seagulls. To wrap it all up we threw a family crab boil to show them how we celebrate down here. Suffice it to say, I think we fit about as much as we could in those four days they spent with us. I’m honored to share our story with them and excited to see what comes of the time we spent together. Stay tuned for when and where you can see the magic we captured.
