We welcome seasoned anglers, beginners, and everyone in between. We will do everything to make sure you enjoy a fully guided and equipped fishing trip!

Captain Joshua Gisclair will be commanding the vessel on your backcountry fishing charter adventure. A Bayou Lafourche native, Capt. Joshua started fishing since he was a kid. He developed a strong passion for fishing growing up and he is always looking to show all of his clients just how fun it can be. He loves teaching people how to fish and nothing makes him happier than when one of his clients reel in a big catch. 

Your outdoor fishing journey will take place in Cut Off, Louisiana and could go on to explore the fishing grounds near Larose, Galliano, Golden Meadow, Lake Salvador, Little Lake, Lake Barre, and many other wonderful locations in Southern Louisiana. 

Capt. Joshua has a stunning Skiff 185 flats boat that is absolutely perfect for backcountry and flats fishing in Louisiana. She runs on a 115hp Yamaha engine and has enough room for you and one other guest. This fishing vessel features a casting platform, poling platform, and a livewell. 

We offer full and half day trips that provide you with all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait needed for a successful trip. Fly fishing equipment is included for those who want to try a more unique method of catching fish. We will clean your catch and prepare it for you to take back home or to a restaurant for cooking options. 


These swampy marshes of South Louisiana are teeming with life throughout the year. Our trips love to target the likes of Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. Capt. Joshua would be happy to teach you about the different fishing techniques he uses to catch these fish including fly fishing, spinning, and light tackle fishing. 


Captain Joshua Gisclair and Shallow Sights Guide Service invite you to take a trip that will leave you wanting more. Book a Louisiana fishing charter with us today and get ready for one of the most thrilling adventures of your life!
