Whether you like fly-fishing or spin casting, the flats, bayous and bays of south Louisiana’s rich marsh holds red fish, speckled trout, blackdrum, sheephead, flounder, crappie and bass in abundance. It is not uncommon to catch limits of several of these species in the same morning.
If deep sea fishing is your passion let us set you up on a trip out of the mouth of the Mississippi, where you are likely to catch red snapper, grouper, black, yellowfin tuna, amberjack, cobia, wahoo and marlin, just to name a few.
The marsh and wetlands in and surrounding Woodland Plantation are truly a sight to behold and experience. Lush with an incredible diversity of flora and wildlife, the area provides visitors an opportunity to become immersed in the unspoiled beauty of Southeast Louisiana.

Depending on conditions, guides usually drive ten minutes south of the Woodland to a private boat launch in Port Sulphur. Guides may drive as far south as Empire or Venice, or take the ferry at West Point a la Hache to the march on the east side of the river. From the launch, anglers run anywhere from ten minutes to over one hour to begin fishing. Enjoy a full day of sight casting to Southern Louisiana Redfish and Black Drum! Lunch is taken in the boat. The fishing day is usually 8-9 hours long and anglers are typically back at the Woodland Plantation between 4:00-5:00 PM.
