Take a Trip with Blue Mudd Fly Fishing Charters

During bull redfish season I run a full day fishing adventure.  You have the option of fishing various locations around the Mississippi river delta. If you are staying in New Orleans we will fish the Hopedale and Delacroix areas out of Breton Sound Marina. This option puts the fishing just a short drive from the french quarter and is an excellent choice option.  If you are looking for other opportunities we can fish Venice, river levels permitting. And, you also have the option of fishing the Western delta out of the Houma area. All of these offer excellent sight fishing opportunities. For more information give me a call and we can discuss the logistics of these destinations.

On a typical day you can expect to arrive on the fishing grounds as the sun rays start to warm the flats, where we will spend a great day poling the flats fly fishing and sight casting at giant bull redfish, monster black drum, and the cajun permit (sheepshead). Early in the season you also have an opportunity at the underrated Jack Crevalle. Pound for pound there is nothing else in the inshore waters of the Gulf Of Mexico that will test your fish fighting ability or equipment like a Jack Crevalle.

Fly Fishing -8 or 9 weight rods with a weight forward floating line are ideal. I will provide all equipment, flies, leaders etc. I encourage you to bring your favorite gear and flies if you like. 

Light tackle equipment is generally a solid 7’ Medium or Medium Heavy rod is appropriate. Casting or spinning gear works fine. I find that the hand tied jigs from buggs fishing lures to be ideal for sight fishing our waters.

For 2017 I'll be guiding out of a fully loaded East Cape Vantage, with Garmin electronics. The vantage is a technical poling skiff with all the amenities you can image. It's a dream to fly fish out of, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Smooth and dry in a chop the Mercury outboard is fast and quiet. For more information check out the August in my journal at http://www.bluemuddcharters.com/journal

 I also offer guided fishing in the marsh complex and nearshore waters of Sabine Lake during the summer months. Sabine is located on Texas Louisiana border. During the warm season March - October there is a tremendous fishery that receives very little angling pressure and is just a short drive from Houston.


Full Day:  8 hour trip (2 person max) - $600.
