Areas Fished

New Orleans Houma Baton Rouge Lafayette Lake Charles Alexandria

Captain Drake grew up hunting, fur trapping, and fishing on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Fishing trips with his father and time spent at the camp in Slidell, fostered his interest in being on the water. After serving as an infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division in the invasion of Iraq, he returned to Louisiana. Upon returning, it wasn't long until every weekend was spent in Lake Catherine, and areas beyond, sight fishing Redfsh and locating schools of hungry speckled trout. Before becoming a full time guide, Captain Drake spent over 15 years selling good old fashioned customer service. He understands the quality experience a customer expects, and deserves.
Captain Drake operates out of Lake Catherine Marina, an easy drive from the city or the Northshore. Depending on the time of year, you'll fish within sight of the city or deep in the Biloxi Marsh. Half day, and full day trips are both offered at Victory Bay Charters. Full day trips are always recommended for the best catch.

1-2 people $450
3 people $575
4 people $725
Larger groups are welcome. Please contact Captain Drake for pricing.

Half Day Rates:
1-2 people $400

Bait is an additional cost to the trip price. Type of bait will depend on the time of year or species targeted.
