Calcasieu Lake Fishing with Capt. James Boudreaux

James Boudreaux is a U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain and has been fishing Southwest Louisiana for 40 years and guiding clients for over 25 years. He grew up fishing this area with his father, the late Captain Robby Boudreaux; one of the most prominent and knowledgeable fishing guides on Lake Calcasieu. The amount of information Robby possessed regarding fishing was endless, but he did his best to pass along all his knowledge to James in the 28 years he was able to cherish with him. James has the ability to cater to all types of anglers, those who want to wade fish, fish from the boat or the “backwaters” of the marshes. Give James a call today to book your next Hackberry fishing charter on Lake Calcasieu.
