Charter & Guide Service

Inshore Fishing

Captain Hil's Charter & Guide Service offers year round light tackle fishing in the marshes, lakes, and coastal bays of southeast Louisiana. Our charters target speckled trout, redfish, flounder, and other species that roam the Lake Pontchartrain basin.

Our Charter

A full day of fishing consists of leaving the dock at safelight (usually around 6:00 am) and returning about 2:00 pm.  Included in the charter package are; a personal guide, fuel, oil, ice, tackle, artificial baits, and fishing equipment.  Captain Hil can provide you with quality equipment or you are welcomed to bring your own.  Live bait is seasonal and will be an additional charge when purchased (dock price).  

What to Bring

When coming on a charter you should bring the following;  a Louisiana fishing license, your lunch and drinks, sunscreen, hat, and an ice chest to bring your catch home.  You may also want to bring a camera to capture some of the memories you create.  Licenses can be purchased at most sporting goods stores or by calling 1-888-765-2602.  Out of state anglers should purchase a "charter trip license".  

Areas Fished 

Some of the areas fished are Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, Lake St. Catherine, the MRGO, along with many of the ponds and bayous in the vast marsh in this area, including the Biloxi Marsh.  Depending on the time of year, the weather conditions, and fishing patterns at the time, Captain Hil will do his best to put you on the fish!

Boat 

Currently, Captain Hil is running a
24' Bluewave bay boat powered by a 250hp Yamaha 4-stroke.  He can accommodate up to 4 anglers comfortably, but has fished with as many as 6 at a time.  However, for groups larger than 4, Captain Hil recommends scheduling additional boats and with advance notice can accommodate your needs.    

Helpful hints for booking trips:
  • Find out what the guide primarily fishes for (specks, reds, etc...)
  • Express to the guide your favorite style of fishing (live or artificial baits)
  • Find out what is furnished
  • Book trips during weekdays if possible (least traffic on the water)
