Louisiana Offshore Fishing Charters fish the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which offers anglers a vast variety of fish species to enhance their fishing experience, including Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Red Snapper, Cobia, Grouper, Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack, and more. 

Depending on the time of year and the migration patterns of the fish, we fish the rigs, the floaters, the ripline, the lump, or behind shrimp boats. And depending upon the types of fish we are targeting, we use the best bait possible to catch fish.
