Catch big fish in the Big Easy.
New Orleans is one of the most fun cities in the world. While the city itself is teeming with history and culture, the waters surrounding it are equally teeming with redfish, seatrout, and jack crevalle. Just minutes from downtown New Orleans, a guide can take you out to explore the bayous of Louisiana and the waters of the Gulf Coast. You can spend all day sight fishing for 20+ pound redfish in the unique ecosystem that is the Louisiana Gulf Coast, and then retire to one New Orlean's legendary seafood restaurants for crawfish, oysters, and poboys.
After a long day of fishing the bayou and a big seafood meal, you can relax in a one of New Orleans’ many jazz bars with a nice glass of bourbon, catch the famous Rebirth brass brand at the Maple Leaf Bar, or hit Bourbon Street with your buddies. With good fishing year round, this might be our number one recommendation for an urban angler.
