FISHING PACKAGES FROM $500 / CUSTOM BAYOU CRUISES & WATERSPORTS FROM $300

McMurphy

Fish Hunter

This family friendly, no experience required package is designed to provide anglers the enjoyment of high speed, run and gun fishing for a variety of Louisiana inshore and nearshore species.  Our waters are teaming with fish and often conditions will favor a specific species, but we work hard to achieve multiple-species slams. The current record sits at 11 (Redfish, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, Stingray, Sail Catfish (Gaftop), Hardhead Catfish, Croaker, Ladyfish, Black Drum, Spot and Needlefish), all within a 6 hour charter. These waters also hold Flounder, Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Garfish, Jack Crevalle, White Trout and Bluegill, so the ultimate goal is still that baker’s dozen.  As avid conservationists, we encourage catch and release fishing, however groups may request catch and clean trips.  Red and Mangrove Snapper trips are also available during their seasons, and require an additional $250 fuel fee (due at the time of deposit).  Louisiana fishing is sound year-round, and we are available for charter during all season (Sunday charters are only run during afternoon hours). 

Purchasing this package automatically enters your group in the running to be featured in this year’s “Hall of Champions”, where you’ll compete to win a $250 gift certificate towards your next fishing trip!

Fly Fishing

Provides anglers the thrill of crawling the skinniest waters of Louisiana’s marshes, in search of “the one”!  We all know she’s out there and can’t wait to watch her stress the old 9′ cane pole to her limits.  Hybrid (combination spin and fly) trips are also available for our nearshore monster Redfish when weather permits (our nearshore Bull Redfish are breeding aged and will be released).  Fly anglers may choose to bring personal fishing tackle and flies, however we’ll have 9 foot Cook and Worsham fly tackle available for all those who wish to travel light.  For the safety of all passengers, only 2 fly fishing rods may be in use at a time, though additional passengers may ride along, and will be worked into rotation.  While our goal in fly fishing is to site cast, there may be tide, water or cloud conditions that require blind casting from time to time.

Bayou Cruising

Cruise the Bayou like a Louisiana native!  Want to see wild life (gators, otter, dolphins, nutria and marsh hens), head out for a crayfish boil on the water front, or just enjoy a quiet sunset with the one you love.  This cruise is for you!  We also provide lunch or dinner cruises, filled with as many smiles as you can stand to give.  Our overnight cruises to Grand Isle are available in the off season (Labor Day-Memorial Day).  With a minimum 3 night stay, these trips can also be taken during the island’s peak season (please call for details and availability).  Overnight cruises may include a half day of spin or fly fishing, and pier fishing equipment for the Island, with an added $250 bait and tackle fee (due at the time of deposit).  All overnight cruises require a $250 fuel fee (due at the time of deposit). 

Bayou Watersports

The Bayou Watersports package is designed to allow your group to enjoy all of the many wonderful things that Louisiana’s inshore has to offer. Enjoy 6 hours of non-stop fun, while choosing from tubing,
wake-boarding and swimming, while jamming out to your favorite Bluetooth music.  Libations are allowed, but are not included (limited to 1 six pack of beer, or 1 bottle of wine per/adult).  We can provide lunch, or you can bring it along, as you relax and turn God’s country into your own water park for the day.
