Fish North America’s most productive estuary, the Deep Mississippi Delta of south Louisiana. Whether you like fly-fishing or spin casting, the flats, bayous and bays of south Louisiana’s rich marsh holds red fish, speckled trout, blackdrum, sheephead, flounder, crappie and bass in abundance. It is not uncommon to catch limits of several of these species in the same morning.

If deep sea fishing is your passion let us set you up on a trip out of the mouth of the Mississippi, where you are likely to catch red snapper, grouper, black, yellowfin tuna, amberjack, cobia, wahoo and marlin, just to name a few.

Just How Good is the Fishing?

“I went to Louisiana with high expectations. Sky high, in fact. I had heard for years about how great the fishing was, how all the boat captains had entrancing stories, how the food was delicious and served in obscenely generous portions. I figured one of two things would happen. The region wouldn’t live up to its generous reputation. Or, I would come away from the experience pleased, full, and utterly enamored with the Bayou. Needless to say, after my stay at Woodland and casting into the marshes, after hooking lunker redfish and dining on fresh oysters and Cajun shrimp, after awaking in the misty quiet of the morning on the plantation, I was sold. Like so many people had done to me, I now urge others to light out for the Gulf and give Woodland a try. Go to Louisiana with dreams of big fish. And good, hearty food. And lofty expectations. You’ll be taken care of.”

“In the world of Monster Redfish, Venice Louisiana holds the title. It’s a yearly stop for BigWater Adventures for not only the legendary Redfishing, but all of the Gulf’s offshore Pelagics and Groundfish as well. The species on the show might change year to year, but you can count on BigWater Adventures always making Woodland Plantation home when we’re in Venice Louisiana. The Lodging, Food, Staff, and hospitality at Woodland Plantation is truly world class. At the end of your stay you’ll leave feeling like family. After a long day of fishing, there’s no other place I’d rather be than with Foster Creppel and his staff at Woodland Plantation.”

“Would love to come down again soon. Had a blast at your place.”

“You run a great operation and I’ve already told plenty of people that travel and fish to come down there, stay and fish.”
