Captain Kenny Ensminger

Capt. Kenny Ensminger Metairie, LA Incorporated Licensed Insured

Come with Captain Kenny Ensminger to go fly fishing the Louisiana Marsh for Redfish and other inshore species such as Sheepshead, Jack Cravelle, Flounder and Black Drum. You’ll be fishing from a 17′ Maverick poling skiff; Captain Kenny provides all equipment needed. You’re welcome to bring your rods, 8 or 9 wt, and flies you may have tied.

New Orleans native, Captain Kenny knows these waters and can guide you to the fish! There’s nothing quite like fishing in Louisiana, and Captain Kenny can teach anglers of all skill levels – from seasoned veterans to newbie anglers, we are committed to guiding you to an enjoyable and memorable excursion.

Louisiana is filled with some of the most incredible fishing grounds in the world. We have extensive and winding waterways, massive estuaries of the Mississippi Delta, and the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If fishing New Orleans is your dream, let Captain Kenny bring that dream to reality with one of his thrilling, private fishing trips.

Trips are full day (8 hours) for two anglers – perfect for a Parent/Child trip, two fishing buddies, or newlyweds starting their marriage on the right foot! Captain Kenny provides all the fishing gear you will need; including fly fishing equipment and flies. You will need to bring your Louisiana state fishing license, as well as any food or drinks for the day. Be sure to pack plenty of water to stay hydrated while out in the sun. You’ll also want to wear polarized sunglasses as we sight fish for Redfish. Rain gear or light jackets may also be a good idea to bring, depending on the weather.

Fly fishing for Redfish in Louisiana is challenging and fun, all at the same time. As your guide, Captain Kenny will pilot the 17’ skiff in pursuit of the gold backs of enormous Red Bulls. Once spotted (usually be seeing the Redfish tail flick the topwater), we start to work getting them to the fly. While Redfish is our primary focus, we can also catch Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, and Speckled Trout.

Usually when people think of New Orleans they have Mardi Gras or Bourbon Street in mind, but there’s so much more beyond the city. Come see the beautiful marshlands that are just a few miles away and let Captain Kenny guide you to the adventure of a lifetime.
