Words don't do justice to how great the fishing trip was we took with Redfish Nation from start to finish. Capt David is a top notch guide and a even better individual that always has a smile on his face. From the first contact I made with him he treated us like family, he helped me and my wife... with lodging reservations which was awesome stayed on the water and got pick up by boat to head out fishing. The fishing was awesome caught tons of fish even watched dolphins both days so close to the boat you could almost touch them. From the very beginning Capt David recommend that we let him make dinner reservations for us where the chef would use the fish we caught to prepare dinner for us. That was the best dinning experience I have ever had, highly recommend every one else take him up on his offer will not be disappointed. The trip was great, the people we met were great, and the Capt is 1st class, we will be back.read more

We are southern NJ. We went down to visit family and took a fishing trip. What a fantastic time. A absolute perfect trip, from beginning to end. He took us to several location, and we were always active with fish. Highly recommended scheduling a trip.

If your looking for a charter fishing trip this is the guy to use. It was a treat for the whole family. It was a child-friendly fishing charter. He was focused on the kids and introduced them to saltwater fishing. Captain David took his time to explain all the different types of fish, gear, and... interesting facts. The kids caught a bunch of fish while having quality family time. Our trip created memories that will last forever.read more

Myself and my family (14yr old, 5yr old, & 4yr old) chartered with Captain David as first time fishers. He was an excellent, very patient, and well prepared guide and knew the waters very well! He had everything we needed to fish, we just showed up! We spent most of the day on the water fishing in... more than one spot that had a bunch of fish biting. Not only were we catching fish but he taught us a lot. At the end the day the fish were cleaned and bagged ready for us to cook at home. If you're considering taking a trip he would be the one you want to charter with! My entire family had an amazing time!read more

An amazing experience with a great captain. Took us to many different spots to try and catch as many fish as possible. Makes sure you are well taken care of during your experience. 10/10 would recommend and would definitely go again.

Redfish Nation gets you on them hot and heavy. Every time I've fished with this crew we have maxed out. Usually early too. These guys are highly recommended for an amazing fishing experience.

Not to mention, David is just an all around... great guy and fun to be out on the water with him. BOOK IT. you won't regret. Thanks Davidread more

My wife and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary fishing with Captain Dave and had a wonderful time and caught our limit of trout and a few red fish and a drum. Captain Dave was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional even after we messed up with our reservation by putting in the... wrong date, Captain Dave changed his plans and made sure we had a great experience. We would highly recommend Redfish Nation and are looking forward to fishing with Captain Dave again in the future!read more

David was an excellent guide and knew the waters very well! We spent an entire day on the water fishing and caught a lot of trout and some redfish as well! Each spot he took us had a bunch of fish biting. He was totally prepared (I'd never been fishing there before) with everything we needed. Oh... and he even helped to clean and vacuum seal the fish! If you're contemplating taking a trip with him I would recommend giving him a chance. I had an amazing time.read more

I’m big on reviews! After searching and reading reviews about local Fishing Guides near New Orleans, Captain David stood out the most! Very glad and lucky to get such an experience Fishing Guide. Captain David was polite, very well manner, funny, patience, on time, passionate about fishing, and... knowledgeable of the area. My wife loved it. Afterward our trip, she was telling me, Man…... Captain baited the hook, grabbed the fish, netted the fish, and cleaned the fish! I’m a fisherman and Captain insisted that I have fun fishing and he took care of the rest. We will return and share our experience with Family, Fellow Law enforcement Friends and College buddies! See you soon Captain; you made memories that we will cherish forever! Thank you, Mike and Amanda G.read more

Captain David provided an awesome expierence. We caught boatloads of fish, mostly reds including one bull, trout, sheephead, stingray and a cat. But fishing is fishing, sometimes you do well, sometimes you don’t- although it was clear he had the fish dialed in. More importantly, David went the... extra mile in every aspect. I highly recommend him and will book again if I’m ever in the area again.read more

Capt. David is a joy to fish with, took my 90 y/o grandfather out and he hasn't stopped talking about the trip. You can see the joy and passion of being on the water on Captain David's face and it cycles down to his guest. Can't wait to be out on the water again with you!!

Had a great time with Capt. David!!! Was a lot of fun fishing, good laughs and he teaches you as the trip goes on. His excitement for fishing gets you pumped up before you even catch a fish! He'll make sure you have a great time, and will run you all over to put you on some fish. Would definitely... recommend! Anyone can take you out on a boat, but not everyone knows what they're doing! Will definitely come back againread more

Louisiana Fishing Charter - David Alphonso Redfish Nation

David Alphonso Jr.

Your Captain

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.
