Capt. Mike May Slidell, LA Incorporated Licensed Insured

Are you ready for an amazing day of fishing in SE Louisiana?! Freedom Charters is based out of Slidell, Louisiana – just across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. We specialize in inshore and nearshore fishing of South Eastern Louisiana. Book your next fishing adventure with Freedom Charters today!

My name is Captain Michael May. I grew up in New Orleans, LA and I have lived and fished in South Eastern Louisiana all of my life. We fish out of Slidell, Louisiana in a 2016 Bay Ranger 2510 with Yamaha 300 HP engine. The boat is equipped with Yamaha 300 HP engine, GPS/FishFinder navigational equipment, and all required safety features (including life jackets).

We target Redfish and Speckled Trout and also catch regularly Flounder, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. We fish primarily the Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, and Biloxi Marsh areas, and also the Breton Sound and Black Bay areas.

Freedom Charters and Captain Mike specialize in bottom fishing, light tackle, and spinning. New or experienced anglers are welcome aboard and we can have a great time talking fishing techniques and species. Fishing the lakes and marshes of Louisiana is always a great time!

We enjoy live bait fishing with shrimp and croakers. We fish artificial baits in various colored plastics both under cork and Carolina rigged on the bottom. We also enjoy some of the world’s finest topwater action!

Trips are great for six people; prices start at $550 for 2 people, with $100 for each additional guest. We provide lures, rods, and reels. We’ll also clean and bag your catch. You will need to bring a valid Louisiana state Fishing License. Also bring hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, food, drinks, and a camera. Live bait extra…..

Whether you are a seasoned angler or a beginner, we are set up to accommodate all of your needs. Come fishing with Freedom Charters and book your next inshore fishing trip in South Eastern Louisiana today!
