The Big Outdoors Charters

Louisiana Inshore and Offshore Fishing Charter and Guided Duck Hunting Outfitter

Welcome To Fishing & Hunting Paradise

The Big Outdoor Charters is located in Hopedale, Louisiana, also known as “The Fishing Capital of the World!” Just 40 minutes from downtown New Orleans. The Big Outdoors Charters was established by Capt. Britt Ordes nearly two decades ago! With over 30 years of experience in inshore and offshore fishing Capt. Britt has evolved The Big Outdoors charters as one of the premier inshore guide services in the state of Louisiana!

This unique marsh estuary is home to the greatest inshore fishing known to mankind. The combination of saltwater marshes and freshwater estuaries creates a natural breeding and nursery ground for many species of fin-fish and crustaceans; which attract millions of saltwater and freshwater fish. This combination makes Louisiana a true “Fishing Paradise” and attracts anglers from all over the world.

Cast & Blast

With one of the most diverse marsh ecosystems in South Louisiana we have just about every type of fishing scenario to offer to you. Whether you like targeting speckled trout, bottom fishing live or artificial baits on shallow water rig, targeting monster bull reds in the 20-40lb. class, sight fishing redfish on our shallow water flats and ponds or taking the ride to the Gulf of Mexico to fish for red snapper, grouper, or pelagic fish Hopedale is the place to be!!! It’s common to catch anywhere from 50 to 150 fish a day, per trip! Our bays are full of healthy fish that are not shy of eating any bait you throw at them, so if you like an ice chest full of fish come down and do some fish catching!

No trip is too big or too small at the Big Outdoors Charters, we can accommodate large corporate groups or small trips such as family or kids fishing trips. We can provide you with professional services and tailor your trip to fit your needs and expectations.
