In this business, experience is everything!
Don’t let anyone fool you. These days, there are only a few folks in
the guide business who have truly “paid their dues”, with respect to
many years of experience, knowledge, and safety. We strive on
safety, knowledge, and experience in navigating the waters of south
Louisiana, recognizing that with disappearing wetlands and forever
changing shallow water reefs and underwater debris that one does not
learn these big waters overnight, or by studying a map, even
navigating by GPS. Let’s face it, years of experience cannot be
bought, and it is the single most important credential to possess. A
paper license alone will not yield a successful nor safe fishing
guide. Don’t trust just anyone with your life; leave your fishing
and hunting adventures up to the experienced Fin & Feather team…
