Fishing the great Lake Ponchartrain for Trout, Reds, and Flounder. Fishing the deep marshes of south east Louisiana.
Book your next Louisiana fishing adventure with Captain Claude Jolicoeur and Strictly Business Fishing Charters. Since fishing the back marshes all his life, Captain Claude decided to pursue a career he loves: showing people the Louisiana fishery that he’s experienced since he was a little boy. He’ll work hard to get your crew on the fish!
Perfect for groups of two to four passengers, Strictly Business Fishing Charters offers full day trips that start at safe light. We’ll fish until we’ve reached our limit or you’re ready to head back to the dock. Captain Claude does his best to get you as much action as possible, willing to move spots if the fish aren’t biting. You’ll come home with catches of Redfish, Drum, Trout, and Flounder.
Fishing techniques include jigging, spinning, bottom fishing, and drift fishing. If you have any question about any of these techniques, Captain Claude is happy to answer your questions. We’ll be sight fishing on the vessel’s casting platform with light tackle gear; if you can, bring polarized sunglasses for sight fishing. Just watch the topwater for action, cast your line, and let the fish discover your bait; that’s the business of fishing.
Your vessel for this trip is a 21 ft Bay Boat with f150 Yamaha engine. The boat has a large livewell for bait and trolling motor to help sneak up on the fish. Safety equipment is standard USCG certified and registered. Captain Claude does not have infant PFDs (personal floatation devices) so we ask that no children under the age of 5 come aboard. The vessel is accessible for those in wheelchairs and we welcome anglers of all skill level.
Strictly Business Fishing Charters fishes Lake Ponchartrain and nearby marshes. Captain Claude provides top quality rods and reels, bait and tackle for the trip. You’ll need to wear a hat and those polarized sunglasses, non-marking sole shoes, and weather-appropriate clothing (such as rain gear or light jacket). Also feel free to bring an extra ice chest for the fillets you’ll take home. You will also need to come with your Louisiana fishing license, available online or at local retail stores that sell fishing goods.
We look forward to fishing with your group; book with Strictly Business Fishing Charters today… With Captain Claude your Louisiana fishing trip is Strictly Business 😉
