The Big Outdoors Charters is located in Hopedale, Louisiana. Just 40 minutes from downtown New Orleans, Hopedale is known as, “The fishing Capitol of the World.” This unique marsh estuary is home to the greatest inshore fishing know to mankind. The combination of saltwater marshes and fresh water estuaries creates a natural breeding and nursery ground for many species of fin-fish and crustaceans; which attract millions of saltwater and fresh water fish. This combination makes Louisiana a true “Fishing Paradise” and attracts anglers from all over the world.
With one of the most diverse marsh ecosystems in South Louisiana we have just about every type of fishing scenario to offer to you. Whether you like targeting those big yellow mouth trophy trout on topwaters, bottom fishing live or artificial baits on shallow water rig, targeting monster bull reds in the 20-40lb. class, or sight fishing redfish on our shallow water flats and ponds Hopedale is the place to be!!! Its common to catch anywhere from 50 to 150 fish a day, per trip! Our bays are full of healthy fish that are not shy of eating any bait you throw at them, so if you like ice chest full of fish come down and do some fish catching!
No trip is to big or to small at the Big Outdoors Charters, we can accommodate large corporate groups up to 25 people or small trips such as family or kids fishing trips.
Each one of our Guides are full time USCG licensed, and Insured captains. We have 6 Captains who are professional experienced guides that have years of knowledge, and are ready to guide you and your friends on a fishing trip of a lifetime!
I have fished alot, all over. Britt runs a top notch operation and has never delivered anything short of a phenomenal experience. Great times with a great guide......
Great trip with captain Britt. We caught our limit and he was patient with two novice adults and a 5 and 7 year old. Couldn’t have had a better day.
Found Capt. Britt and Big Outdoor Charters in 2014 after I bought a donated fishing trip from him at a charity auction. Since then, he is my preferred charter captain when I want to go out fishing the marshes around Hopedale for trout and redfish. He was great with my kids when they were younger, and they love going out with him too now. My buddies enjoy going with him too when they're in town, as he always finds you fish regardless of the conditions. He's fun to be with on the boat as well. His lodge right across from his boat dock is a great place to stay. Top of the line person and business right here. Highly recommended!
I’ve been on multiple charter trips with Captain Britt, and you can bet that he ALWAYS does the work to make sure you get and stay on quality fish. He’s prompt, courteous and extremely knowledgeable of this fishery, can’t go wrong here. Rest up, you’ll need it!
Capt Britt runs a first class operation. Boat and equipment are always clean and well maintained. Britt works hard to keep you on the fish and ensure everyone has a good time.
