THE WEEKEND GETAWAY

Parties & Events

Louisianians always find a reason to celebrate and no one parties better than New Orleans. From shopping and dining in the French Quarter to walking down Bourbon Street lined with restaurants, Burlesque clubs and jazz houses, there is something to do every day of the year down here.

Besides, of course, fish.

Being only 90 minutes south of New Orleans, planning a perfect weekend of Triple Tail fishing and fun has never been easier. You can be locked in hand-to-hand combat with a giant yellowfin during the day and enjoy a fantastic Creole Jambalaya Risotto dinner at the Red Fish Grill on Bourbon Street that night (we recommend the double chocolate bread pudding for dessert—it takes 20 minutes to prepare and it’s worth the wait).

Planning a birthday weekend?

Trade in the cake and candles for some bait and hooks, and you won’t need to make a wish because you’ll already be fishing some of the best waters on the planet. Let Captain Blake know you’re planning the trip around someone’s birthday and he’ll bring a present of his own for the birthday boy or girl.

Maybe You’re Planning a Bachelor Party With the Guys

Not only will you get in far less trouble on the water but you won’t be tempted to hook “anything that’s out of season…” (if you catch our drift). When you get together with the guys, you typically compete over something so catching the largest fish/most fish will provide you bragging rights for life.

Or Maybe You’re Planning a Girls Weekend

Just imagine spending a day on the water catching fish as well as a great tan and another day exploring the shops, shows and restaurants of New Orleans. Never been on a guided fishing trip before? We love introducing people to Louisiana fishing and provide a safe environment where you can learn, laugh and relax.

New Orleans is widely recognized as the Festival Capital of the World. The city hosts dozens of festivals that celebrate our unique food, music and heritage throughout the year—Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Po-Boy Festival, Carnaval Latino, St. Patrick’s Day, Southern Decadence, the list goes on. Want to plan a trip in the next few months? Find a festival that sounds exciting and check our calendar to see if we have an open charter that weekend.

Regardless of why you’re coming, Captain Blake can help make your next weekend getaway one that won’t be forgotten.
