Capt. Owen Langridge has been fishing all of south Louisiana for 45 years and has specialized in fishing the lower river delta for the past 30 years. His vast knowledge of this area is yours for the taking when you book with Big "O" Charters. 225-978-1136 or 225-664-9293
"I started fishing south Louisiana when I was 5 years old. At that age my targets were bream, bass, and catfish. As I grew older, bass took center stage for me. Then I was introduced to saltwater fishing and I was HOOKED."
Big "O," as his friends call him, fished from Grand Isle to Delacroix and all points in between. "Thirty years ago I was taken on a trip to Venice, Louisiana. Since then I have not had a reason to fish anywhere else. The lower Mississippi River Delta is the greatest fishing estuary in the world."
Capt. Owen targets redfish and speckled trout. "I catch other species," says the captain, "such as flounder, but reds and specks are my favorite and my specialty."
Venice, Louisiana produces large numbers of both reds and specks each year. Bull reds up to 30 pounds and large numbers of trout up to 8 pounds are not uncommon. "I feel a new state record speckled trout is swimming in the waters of the Delta, and someday a lucky angler will land her."
Big "O" Charters caters to family outings and enjoys seeing a child catch his first BIG fish. "I love to see a daughter or son, even a spouse, do battle with one of the bull reds or trophy specks we have in Venice. Having that happen on one of my trips is like icing on the cake - it makes my day!"
Capt. Owen fishes out of a new 24 foot Skeeter bay boat with a 300 HP Yamaha four-stroke outboard. He is a member of the Skeeter "Pro-Team" and gets a new boat every five to ten months. Because of this you
get to fish in a new state-of-the-art rig every time you book with Big "O." "Having the best equipment is paramount in having a safe and enjoyable trip. I use only the best equipment and run only the finest boats." Capt. Owen is also a member of the Bass Pro Staff, which gives him access to all the latest fishing gear coming out on the market.
