My name is Capt. Gene Dugas. I am a native-born Louisianan and have fished the waters of southeastern Louisiana all my life. I am one of the most consistently successful New Orleans fishing guides in the area. On our "adventure", I will gladly show you some of the techniques and tricks specific to these waters that are acquired with years of fishing experience. I will personally take the time to show you and your group what is necessary to ensure a successful fishing trip and a good time.

And what is light tackle fishing without fish? Nothing. That’s why I guarantee fish.

We’ll navigate through the marshes, lakes, bayous and bays from Hopedale and Delacroix Island to the open waters of Breton Sound from my fully rigged 25’ custom built Avenger Bay Boat powered by 225 HP Mercury outboard motor. This natural estuary, formed by the Mississippi River is teaming with fish and wildlife. There simply is no better light tackle, Louisiana speckled trout fishing and red fishing anywhere. These natural wetlands are home to a huge variety of fish… if you know where to look. And believe me, I do!
