A friend and I were lucky to be paired with Captain Cricket. Right out of the gate top water redfish, and we loved it. We stayed on fish most the day and caught our limit. As a long time fisherman in South Florida I was thoroughly impressed with the captain's knowledge. When the winds changed he knew exactly where to go. As the tide changed we moved into the zone. No doubt we're going back next year and gonna do it a few more days. Thanks for a great experience and thank you Captain Cricket.

My husband Randy and I, give a trip to each of our grandchildren for Christmas each year. An overnight stay at the lodge and fishing by seaplane was our gift to our 12 year old grandson and his best friend. This has to go down as one of our favorite experiences. We flew by sea plane and waded in the grasses along sand bars off the coast. Such a unique experience!!! The view from the plane was amazing and Captain Theophile educated and entertained us along the way and expertly put us on top of some prime redfish and a few trout. The boys even got to reel in a big drum fish!!! We give this team a 5 star rating. There are so many moving parts that are needed to make this trip smooth and enjoyable, and from top to bottom this staff was excellent. I recommend this trip to anyone, women, men, teens. We will return! Thanks TEAM BOURGEOIS!!!

More than what I expected. The crew at Bourgeois Fishing Charters live up to their reputation. I took my 16 year old son for a bucket list fishing trip - we could not have had a better experience. The accommodations were very clean, spacious, and are great, the food was Cajun inspired and was outstanding, and the fishing was simply incredible. Highly recommend Kevin as a guide - he made sure we fished the best spots and took care of all of our needs while fishing. The lodge is 20 minutes from Downtown New Orleans so we were able to go into town and see and experience NOLA. There is no doubt that we will be back. Our only complaint is that we had to leave. Thanks to Bourgeois Fishing Charters for such a great gulf coast fishing experience.

The people here go out of their way to make this a great place stay and fish. Dawn cooks up the best dishes. Captains Wayne, Kevin and Steve work hard on the boats. The plane trip is a must.

Best inshore saltwater fishing in the US, best food, lodging and experience that can be had. You'll have a limit of Trout and Reds everyday by noon. First class all the way.

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.

Boy did the Captain give Bourgeois Fishing Charters good name. Not only did he put us on fish all day, he gave us the experience of a lifetime. Cannot wait to come back to the wonderful New Orleans and see them again.

The folks at the house were extremely friendly, Captain Dave was awesome and knew exactly where to find the fish. He was super patient with my son who has autism. I highly recommend Bourgeois it was well worth every penny. If we take a trip to go fishing in southern Louisiana again we will definitely go with Bourgeois again!
