It's about that time of the year! February and March are great months to catch some jumbo yellowfin, wahoo, or mako sharks. Last year was a good one, but let's make 2018 even better. Come take a spin in the new 42' Fincat and catch the fishing while the bite is hot! 225-226-2781 or

Capt Austin left the dock at 2pm Friday in search for Speckle Trout and thats what he found!! His crew was realing in trout every cast until the bite slowed, but they already had 65 keepers! The customers decided they wanted some redfish so we hit some cuts and points and picked up 12 reds! After 12 we decided to head to the dock with little light that was left! All fish were caught under a popping cork with live shrimp. Give us a call to experience some of this action.
