What You Can Expect:

Fly fishing or light tackle sight fishing in the Louisiana marsh just outside of New Orleans is an incredible experience like none other.  A day with Southern Fly Expeditions is an escape from the everyday responsibilities and an entryway to a surreal adventure.  From the moment you meet Capt. Brandon Keck, you will begin to see the passion he has for the marsh and for sharing it with you.  His goal is to provide the most exciting, relaxing, and memorable adventure in the Louisiana marsh.

Louisiana has one of the best saltwater fisheries and has the BEST redfish fishery in the world!  Experiencing the Louisiana marsh and what it has to offer is simply unexplainable.  You'll have no sight of society, just raw nature.  No car exhaust smells, no car horns honking, no trains, and no traffic congestion.  It's a vacation from what many call "life".

There's such a large diversity of wildlife in the Louisiana marsh and you'll see something different on every charter.  You never know what you'll experience, but you'll always be glad you did.

We have some of the most aggressive and largest inshore species there are such as Bull Redfish and Black Drum, challenging Sheepshead, huge freight-train Jack Crevalle, hungry Sharks, and monstrous Alligator Gar!  Once you sight-fish one of these species on fly or light tackle you'll be hooked for life and the experience will visit you in your dreams until you come back and do it again.

Imagine your guide stealthily polling one of the best flats skiffs on the market with you on the casting platform and no other boat in sight.  Your guide calls out "11 o'clock 30 feet" and you lock your eyes on the golden glow of a bull Redfish just under the surface cruising right toward you.  You make a perfect cast!  And then all of the sudden the calm turns into an explosion as the aggressive bull Redfish completely engulfs your offering and the drag screams as the fish puts its huge tail to work like never before.  It doesn't give up quickly and you feel the raw power of the fish from your hands to your feet.  You finally get your prized catch to the boat and that it's even larger than you imagined.  Your guide lifts the fish from the water for you both to enjoy before taking photos, reviving the fish, and releasing it.  Smiles and high-fives for everyone before doing it again with no two situations being the same.  Your friends and family will ask you to explain the experience, but it's simply unexplainable.

Whether you are a novice or an experienced angler, your guide will do everything within their power to ensure you have a trip to remember!  Allow Southern Fly Expeditions to give you a true Louisiana experience and show you what we have to offer.  Come spend time on the water with us in the marsh just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana and experience the unexplainable.
