WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • All fly and light tackle (spin) gear.  Please specify if you will need a right-hand-retrieve fly reel.  We encourage you to use your own equipment if that's more comfortable for you.  Please keep the amount of gear to a minimum.  If you choose to bring your own gear we recommend the following:

    • 8, 9, & 10 wt fly rods and reels spooled with weight-forward floating fly line and plenty of 30lb or higher strength backing.

    • Medium to Med-Heavy spin or casting rods and reels spooled with at least 30lb-test braid.

  • Transportation from your New Orleans hotel may be provided if needed.  Please discuss this with your guide.

  • Fuel, Boat launching fee, & Ice when needed.

  • Professional photos taken of you and your trophy (CATCH & RELEASE). These photos are not to be cropped, edited, or used for profit in any way.

  • Ask us about our tagging program!  Tag your fish with our supplied tags and you could be notified with information regarding the tagged fish if caught again and reported.  It's really interesting to know how much a specific fish has grown in a certain amount of time, where it traveled to when caught, etc.  This information will also be used in professional research and conservation efforts!

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Polarized sunglasses with amber/copper/brown/yellow colored lenses, Brimmed hat to shield the sun from your eyes.

  • Lunch, Refillable water bottle, Sunblock, Waterproof top and bottom outerwear to block wind and rain.

  • Warm layers of clothing for colder temperatures, Lightweight clothing for warmer temperatures. (Shorts and bare feet are NOT recommended due to the possibility of biting flies).

  • A "Charter Passenger (3-day)" Louisiana fishing license is required for each angler, which can be purchased from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries or by calling 1-888-765-2602.  This will cover you for 3 consecutive days which you will request.  An authorization number will be given to have with you on your charter(s).  You do not need the license hard-copy if you have the authorization number.

  • Medications that you may require.

  • Notify the captain of any special accommodations needed.

  • Most importantly, bring a positive attitude and a willingness to adjust tactics and such depending on conditions.
