Lake Pontchartrain Louisiana Fishing Guide

"You got to Book' em, to Hook' em, to Cook' em!"

Therapy Charters, a USCG Licensed and LA Wildlife and Fisheries Licensed Charter Guide Service, whose home port is Slidell, LA, offers New Orleans area fishing trips inshore saltwater charter fishing Lake Pontchatrain, Lake Borgne, and Biloxi Marsh.

We offer fishing from our fully rigged bay boats, kayak fishing excursions, fly fishing the shallow waters for tailing Redfish, or whatever you may have in mind.

On Lake Pontchartrain fishing guide trips they aim for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. There's nothing like the fight of the large Redfish from the Biloxi Marsh area. Capt. John's knowledge of these waters is the reason his clients make memories with their children, family members, and friends.

Fishing out of his spacious 2014 Blue Wave 2400 Pure Bay, helps make short time of the open waters of Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, large bays, and the Gulf of Mexico out of Grand Isle.

THERAPY CHARTERS is able to accommodate up to 6 people per boat.

Capt. John's specialty is children and families, for that reason his motto is "TAKE A KID FISHING!" Seeing young kids enjoy the outdoors is awesome!

From popping corks to fly fishing, we can cater to your every need. Let Capt. John teach the kids while you enjoy your fishing.

Lake Pontchartrain fishing charters start around safe light and I will contact you a couple of days ahead of your trip to let you know what time to meet and where depending on the marina used. We return to the Marina around 1:30 to start cleaning your catch!

This is not set in stone. If we feel we need to stay longer to make for a better trip than we will. Sometimes we are in before 1:30 with your catch. It's going to depend on the fish, tide, weather, and the bite!
