COVID-19 notice: Big Dog Fishing Charters are open and running daily trips now despite the current situation. In Louisiana, charter guides are exempt from stay at home order.

Big Dog Fishing Charters offers inland saltwater adventures out of Lafitte, Louisiana, just a short drive from New Orleans. Explore the beautiful and abundant marshes and bays. Have fun with your family and friends fishing with the locals like the locals.

The area’s beautiful bayous and the Barataria Basin offer some of the most amazing fishing in the South. The waters are home to Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead, Bass, and many more.

Big Dog Fishing Charters caters to your specific needs and wishes whether it’s your first time on the water or you’re an experienced angler. Your captain will guide you through the basics before you make your first cast. As well as that, he will assist you throughout the adventure.

All the charters are private and usually depart at safe light. The trips last for about 6.5-7.5 hours, which allows you plenty of time to master the cast and make a great catch possible.

You will be fishing aboard a 24’ center console, which was fully uphauled in 2015. The boat’s 300 HP Mercury engine will power you and three fishing buddies to the hottest grounds in the area. As well as that, the modern navigational and fish-finding electronics will save your Tim while searching for fish.

All trips come with gear, tackle, and lures. When you’re done fishing, the captain will clean and bag the catch for you. All you have to do is purchase a fishing license, grab some food and drink, and hop on board!

Born and raised on the Bayous of Lafitte (Barataria Basin). There is no greater way of life or joy than to share our heritage with those visiting New Orleans. I love to see the light in people's eyes as they land their catch - whether it is their 1st or 100th fish, it is always a pleasure to share a bit of the Bayou with others. I own and operate Big Dog Fishing Charters and have a team of Captains waiting to show you a great time!
