The marshes and mud flats of southern Louisiana are home to the best redfish fishing in the world. This affordable, year-round fishery is only 45 minutes south of New Orleans. Combine the convenience and fantastic fishing with the charm, comfort, and hospitality at the Woodland Plantation bed and breakfast – and you have the most popular destination in our travel catalog.
The Woodland Plantation, a 180-year-old restored sugar plantation on the west bank of the Mississippi, can accommodate any group type with spacious private rooms, multiple condos, and houses across its fifty acres of bottomland hardwoods, wetlands, and gorgeous landscaping. Spirits Hall, a converted Baptist church, serves as Woodland’s restaurant and lively bar.
The late autumn and winter months must be booked a year in advance, but far too many anglers ignore the late spring, summer, and early fall fishing, which can be every bit as spectacular. The marsh is also crawling with black drum, speckled trout, sheepshead, and frequent encounters with jack crevalle. Our summer inshore/offshore combo trips provide opportunities for bull reds, cobia, jacks, snapper, dorado, sharks, mackerel, tarpon and more.
