Mothership Louisiana

Location: Cocodrie, Southern Louisiana

Fishery: You’ll be fishing some of the world’s most productive flats for big bull redfish. The simply beautiful marshlands of southern Louisiana with their mazes of channels, flats and islands will be home as you depart on skiffs from the mothership to chase these giant redfish. Redfish that get up to 40lbs and eat flies with a smile on their faces, often extremely close to the skiff. Not to mention the giant black drum and sheepshead that inhabit the marsh and take nicely to a well presented fly.

Accomodations: You’ll be staying on Eleven Experience’s 61’ Hatteras Mothership called the Outpost. It’s a a beautifully restored vessel that features four comfortable and well-appointed private staterooms and bathrooms. Each evening fine cuisine is served consisting of seafood, meat and fresh produce.
