Louisiana Fishing Guide Service
Adventure South Guide Service specializes in guiding clientele on light-tackle saltwater fishing trips for redfish and speckled trout in coastal Southeast Louisiana. On a typical day you will leave the dock at "safe light" and will find yourself running through a maze of bayous, bays, and marshes on your way to one of the many fishing locations in the area. Once arriving at the first "honey hole", you will troll or drift along while casting artificial lures to grass covered points or over one of the many oyster reefs in the area. These waters are so full of rod bending redfish and tail walking speckled trout that it is not uncommon to catch 100+ fish each day. The action is unbelievable. To put it plan and simple, light-tackle fishing for redfish and speckled trout is like "bass fishing on steroids." A 5-lb. redfish will pull a 5-lb. bass backward, and speckled trout will break the water on a topwater lure until they get it. These fish never quit!
We do offer the use of St. Croix rods and high-quality reels at no extra charge; however, you are welcomed to bring your own rod and reel if you like. If you do decide to bring your own rod and reel, we recommend that you use a 6'6"-7'0" medium action rod and a reel that is capable of holding 100-150 yards of 12-15 lb. line. This particular combination of rod and reel will allow you to get the most fun out of each fish you catch. So whether you're throwing a jig to a cruising redfish or casting a topwater lure into a school of surface crashing speckled trout, it will be a sporting and rewarding experience.
At Adventure South Guide Service, we are proud to use Blackjack Boats, Honda outboards and Minn Kota trolling motors. This combination of boat and motor is safe, fast, and perfectly suited for stalking redfish in shallow marsh lined bayous or drift fishing for speckled trout over reefs in one of the many coastal bays. "We like to go where the fish go, and this combination of boat and motor can get us there in comfort!"
When fishing with us, there are just a few things that we recommend you bring:
- Sun Block
- Sunglasses (Polarized lenses are preferred)
- Rain Gear
- Non-marking white soled shoes
- Ice Chest (To transport your cleaned fish)
- Food and Drink
