A day of fishing is $600 for 1 or 2 fishermen. Cost includes lunch, refreshments, gear and tackle, flies and lures. Payment is by cash or check. Sorry, no credit cards.
Clients are required to purchase a fishing license. A 3-Day Charter Passenger, state license #79, valid only when fishing with a guide, is $10 and available at numerous retail outlets.
They can also be purchased online from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, at www.la.wildlifelicense.com/start.php. There is a $2.50 service charge.
Clients can also call 888-765-2602 and get a license number; a $3 service charge is added.
Rods and reels, flies, tackle etc., are available for client use. For those bringing their own gear, the following recommendations are given.
For fly fishermen, 8-weight rods are recommended. Reels should have a good drag system, and floating lines are needed for shallow-water sight-fishing. Fly patterns and recipes are available upon request.
For bait-cast/spin fishermen, a medium or medium/heavy rod is best, matched with a reel with a good drag system. Spoons, spinners and minnow patterns are best.
Marsh Madness clients fish from a 19-foot shallow-draft center-console Bay Seaker flats boat.
