Why People Choose Redfish Nation
We're a full-service guided Louisiana fishing charter on a fully equipped vessel! Your adventure will be the pursuit of the many inshore species of Louisiana's coast - speckled trout, black drum, flounder, sheepshead, largemouth bass, redfish, and more. This is an all-inclusive adventure and will be guided by a fully insured Captain licensed by Louisiana and the US Coast Guard.
Our fishing charters include bait, fuel, ice, cold drinking water, and fishing equipment. Your memories will be captured on photo and video, so you can look back on your adventure with family and friends. At the end of your journey, your fish will be cleaned, packaged, and iced for your ride home.

Step Aboard and Start Your Adventure
I feel as though I'm a Captain Amongst Captains. I maintain healthy relationships with other captains and established chartering services in the area as a captain for hire. My family is of Islenos decent, Spanish settlers from the Canary Islands; and they've been on the water for generations dating back to the 1780's. My passion is the adventurous hunt for redfish in the interior, shallow marsh. I am a strong advocate of conservation and volunteer with groups such as the Audubon Institute, LDWF Aquatic Volunteer Instructor Program, Wish To Fish Louisiana, and TAG Louisiana (marine tag & release research). My passion for redfish also drove me to not only compete, but work as crew in tournaments such as the Elite Team Redfish Series, America's Redfish Cup by Tito's, Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) Redfish Tour, Dockside Marine Redfish Trail, and more.
