Guide Bio

From a very young age, I started fishing and shrimping the Cocodrie/Dularge area with my grandfather. I have seen it get better and better through the years, as proper management really does work! I truly believe we have the best fishery in the area! With limits of 25 trout and 5 redfish per person without hurting the population, that’s plenty of fish to eat!

I have always enjoyed taking people fishing and showing off our beautiful and unique southern Louisiana coast. I never get tired of it. There is always something new to see, and of course, I never get bored of fishing! I can’t thank my Grandfather enough for getting me hooked and my son for helping make it happen! In 2010, my son bought a brand new Bluewave 24′ Purebay bay boat, came to me and said, “Dad, I know you always wanted to do this, here is a boat, use it like it’s yours, get your license and do it.” That was the push I needed! At the time, he was operating an online tackle store,, which evolved into what is now Catchdat Charters.

I didn’t want to keep using his boat; but, I knew I was staying with Bluewave! I’m now on my third Bluewave Purebay. There’s simply just nothing better for what we do. My 2015 model is fully equipped for a fun day on the water including a nice sound system, equipped with Bluetooth, so my clients can listen to their own favorite music. I’m ready to prove the music does not scare the fish!

From about May through September, we fish the Gulf of Mexico coast, Barrier island and close in oil platforms. October through April, we fish the inland lakes, bayous and marshes. Speckled Trout and Redfish are our main targets but, we also get Black Drum, Sheepshead, Largemouth Bass, and Flounder. All brand new Penn fishing tackle supplied along with lures. Yes, lures – we never use live bait, unless requested – it’s simply not needed here.

I have been fishing the Gulf of Mexico and marshes and lakes of southern Louisiana all of my life. If there is one thing I like more than catching fish, it’s finding fish and making sure my customers have a great time catching!
