Grand Isle fishing charters offer a diverse range of fishing opportunities year-round. Located on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, Grand Isle is surrounded by the Mississippi River Delta, providing access to inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing. The area is known for its variety of fish species, including Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Amberjack, Cobia, and Snappers.
Extended full-day or overnight trips are recommended for those targeting Yellowfin Tuna or other pelagic species, while half-day trips offer great inshore and nearshore fishing opportunities. Grand Isle offers a variety of vessels for fishing, from inshore skiffs to large sportfishing vessels, departing from either the Gulf side or the Mississippi River Delta side.
Anglers over the age of 16 fishing aboard a licensed charter captain's vessel must purchase a Saltwater License in addition to their basic Louisiana Fishing License, as they will be fishing beyond Louisiana's "saltwater line."
