Offshore Fishing Charters in Grand Isle, LA

Down The Bayou Fishing Charters

During the colder months, we stay inshore and fish the marshes and deep ponds.  The bull redfish start biting in August and boy are they fun to catch! It’s fun to fish in Port Fourchon because of the variety of fish we catch! One cast can be a speckled trout then the next can be a Florida pompano.  Flounder, sheepshead, Spanish mackerel, and black drum are also on the menu.  Even on the windier days, we can head out to our marsh holes that are full of fish and protected from the weather.

Don’t be afraid to ask us about our special marsh bass charters! During the right times of the year, we lock into the largemouth bass in the brackish waters of the marsh.  If the deep blue isn’t for you, or you would like to try a different type of fishing call us and we will take care of you!

6 Hour Half Day Trip ($1,800)

The half day is perfect for people who want to try out their sea legs!

Less hard core than an entire day out on the water, but the half day is still a good way to put fish in the box.  During the half day, we stay within 50 miles of the dock which allows more time for fishing. Less running time, more fishing time!

When Do We Leave?

Either leave the dock at 6am and fish the morning or leave at noon and catch the afternoon.

We can adjust the time to fit your schedule!

What Will We Catch?

  • Mangrove Snapper
  • Red Snapper
  • Cobia

12 Hour Day Trip ($2,400)

Our most popular trip, perfect for any customer!

12 hours out on the water allows us to travel the distance and still have plenty of time to catch fish.

When Do We Leave?

We usually leave the dock around 6 am but we adjust according to how the fish are biting.

What Will We Catch?

  • Tuna
  • Grouper
  • Swordfish
  • Snapper

14 Hour Night Trip ($2,800)

Weekday Special

The 14 Hour Night Trip is perfect for the night owls!

14 hours out on the water without having to fight the sun, allows us to avoid the heat and the fish are usually hungrier at night.  You get the sunset and the sunrise bite which is the best time to be out on the ocean!

When Do We Leave?

We usually leave the dock around 6 pm and return 8 am.

What Will We Catch?

  • Tuna
  • Grouper
  • Swordfish
  • Snapper

24 Hour Overnight Trip ($4,000)

This trip is for the hard core fisherman. 

Be prepared for some sore muscles and a lot of fish.  24 hours out in the Gulf of Mexico usually leads to a boat full of fish.  Screaming reels, angry fish and no sleep are the products of these trips.  Our overnight trips also allows us to target more species of fish.  An entire day on the water with Captain Joey and Captain Austin delivers lots of fish and fun!

When Do We Leave?

We usually leave the dock at 11 AM.
