Inducted into the Louisiana Outdoor Hall of Fame in March of 2003, Captain Stu started the first full-time inland charter fishing operation in Louisiana in 1971. He has been featured in more than 150 local, regional, and national articles in various publications. He has also been a featured speaker at hundreds of sportsman's shows, seminars, and clubs promoting Louisiana fishing. In addition, he was appointed to former governor Dave Treen's Saltwater Fin Fish Task Force and was instrumental in writing some of the current saltwater fishing laws.
As a charter boat captain for 43 years, he has personally run more than 10,000 charter trips, showing no signs of slowing down. He still averages 200 charters per year and currently handles bay trips for reds and trout during spring and summer months. Fall and winter finds him in the marshes and inland lakes, pursuing trout, reds, and drum. He is available approximately 350 days per year and has successfully fished for just about everything that swims. His success and knowledge of the fishery is unmatched. In the past 41 years, he has unofficially been responsible for approximately 40 parish, state, and U.S. fish records. The latest being the second largest red fish caught on a rod and reel in the Gulf in September 2002, weighing in at 54 pounds 4 ounces.
