Houma LA Charter Fishing
Light Tackle Charters is a father and son business and we take pride in what we do. Even if the fish are not cooperating, we guarantee you will still have a great trip and many lasting memories. We fish the Dularge area and have a network of Captains, so no matter if it’s just you and your spouse or a 40 client corporate trip, we can accommodate your needs. We also have lodging, so give us a call and come experience what South Louisiana has to offer!Captain Gerald Ellender
My name is Captain Gerald Ellender and I live in Houma, Louisiana. Houma is located in Terrebonne Parish which is centered between the Mississippi River and the Atchafalaya River. It has been said that the Atchafalaya Basin is one of North America's greatest remaining Estuaries. That being said, it is no wonder why the waters around and below Terrebonne Parish are so rich with fish and wildlife. I have always heard, if you do what you really love and are passionate about, then you will not have to ever work again. That is why I am a fishing guide/charter fisherman. I love preparing for trips and still get excited. I enjoy working everyday of the week if needed. I am so grateful that I am able to share this passion with my clients and customers.
Captain Joshua Ellender
My name is Captain Joshua Ellender. I grew up in Houma, Louisiana and have been fishing the area since my single digit years. I was lucky to have one of the best fishing teachers out there, Captain Gerald Ellender. I have been professionally guiding, since the beginning of 2008. Prior to guiding, I was in the Navy for seven years and worked along the east coast. While I was there, I realized that South Louisiana is arguably the best place to fish in the Country! We are blessed to have such a magnificent place to fish and I would like to share it with you. As Captain Gerald stated above, I also have a passion for fishing. I was one of the lucky ones to figure out what I love to do and that is sharing my experience of catching fish with customers. So give us a call and come experience what South Louisiana has to offer!

Coastal and Inland fishing offers Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Founder and Sheepshead. All of these fish provide great table fare and are a blast to catch!
Here is a guide of when to schedule your trip:
Speckled Trout: April - Aug and Oct. - Jan. are the best months, but still can be caught anytime of the year. July and August are fantastic night fishing months! The limit is 25 fish per person and the total length has to be a minimum of 12".
Redfish: April - Jan. is great redfishing. August and September are the best redfishing months; the vast number of redfish that are caught this time of year is something you have to experience yourself! The limit is 5 fish per person and the slot is 16"-27" and only one over 27".
Flounder: Oct. - Jan. are great months, but generally, we do not target these fish. If we catch one or many, it is usually a bonus.
Black Drum: All year and these fish get big! The BIG ones usually run 40-50lbs.
Sheepshead: All year.
