offshore fishing

Recognized as an amazing paradise for sportsmen, the Louisiana coastline is known to have the best offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Numerous saltwater species are available year-round, drawing anglers to the cobalt blue seawater just south of Louisiana.

Chartering a Boat

While fishing is often a “do it yourself” sport, the best way to ensure a great day on the water is to hire one of Louisiana’s many charter captains  to take you to where the fish are.  There are a large variety of charter boat fishing services available from the East, Central and West coastlines of Louisiana. These include Venice, Port Fourchon, and Grand Isle. Booking a charter service to catch a large number of fish species is simple. Many of these fishing trips can be chartered for eight, 12 or 14 hours. Some companies even offer overnight or multi-day fishing trips to deep water locations.

Coastal Louisiana is a hot-spot for tuna fishing during the month of April! Fishers are taking advantage of this opportunity and fishing in the fertile waters just off the mouth of the river. Josh Howard from Deep South Charters was happy to report his success with fishing for tuna, even when the waters didn't cooperate. Even on the slow days, Howard was able to bring back plenty of meat, some fish weighing in at over 100 lbs!

Would you like to watch monster fishing coming over the side of the boat fishing greats Hank Parker, Chris Fischer, Jimmy Houston, and Kevin Vandam?  Then mark your calendars for April 2011 as Louisiana Sportsman TV will debut on The Sportsman Channel!
