Hello Future Angler, I’m Captain Mike Brantley!

Your fishing trip will consist of a heavy dose of Mother Nature!  You will see the beautiful canvas that God paints on every morning as we cross the waterways of southeastern Louisiana. There will be an assortment of Birds, Otters, Nutria Rats, Alligators and we may even come across a pod of Porpoise playing & flipping in their natural habitat.

On our angling excursion, we will be targeting Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder, and also Bay Snapper along with other species.

We generally leave at 1st daylight to ensure a safe and comfortable ride upon my vessel. Before arriving at our fishing destination,  I will give specific instructions on the techniques we will use to fish that particular area. I will be playing the part of a deckhand, making sure that all your rods & reels are functional and remain in the right position to land an awesome catch. I will make sure your line has bait and never twisted up and remains tight, this will help you get ready for a quick, powerful tug you’re about to receive.

These game fish are elusive. We will be trying our hardest to fill the cooler and put together a nice box of fish for our clients. I welcome you to take as many pictures as you wish with your prized catch ( fish ) on our waterways. We are out here to make lasting memories.  When we arrive back at the marina, I will carefully clean your fish to your liking and bag them up for you.

With all my knowledge and experience “I guarantee fish” With that being said, ” No Fish, No Pay! “
