From downtown New Orleans you're just a Cast Away from Delacroix Island, one of the last remaining fishing and shrimping communities unchanged by time. A place that seems to move as slow and steady as the gentle tide shift of the day.
The abundance of wildlife and fish in the area has been rated at the top by such outdoor magazines as Fins and feathers/ESPN outdoors/ Louisiana Sportsman as well as others. Whether catching speckled trout, red fish, flounder or drum, you will be treated to some of the finest light tackle fishing offered anywhere.
Bays, inlets, ledges.
