Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Charter Trip Catastrophe
This past Friday I had a charter trip booked out of Boudreaux's Marina in Cocodrie for a bachelor party. Figured it would be nice to let someone else take us out instead of going in my boat. I had 4 guys drive all night from Texas to my camp on Four Point Road. We arrived at the marina at 5:15am ready to get on the trout. After watching the radar we decided to wait a little while to let the storms break up. Well 9am rolled around and we left out. After we left we stopped and got bait and headed out. We got to our first stop and caught 5 or 6 hard heads in 10 min. Left there and went to a second spot. Fished for 15 min. and caught a few hard heads. We picked up and thought that we were headed to another spot, instead we ended up back at the marina. Guide said we were going to check the radar and give it another shot. Well before we know it, the guide put the boat up. Then we were suprised with a bill of $800 for 25 min. of fishing and a 2 hour boat ride. My friends and I were shocked and pissed. They did not offer to reschedule or cancel the trip that morning after seeing how the weather was. I am highly disappointed that we were treated like that especially that I have been a customer there since I was a kid. Never again will I recommend a trip there again. I will just fish out of my own boat.
