Louisiana is located in the Deep South and is known as “Sportsman’s Paradise” with over 52,000 square miles of land mass that can be divided into two parts, the uplands of the north, and the alluvial stretch along the coast, that includes low swamp lands, coastal marshlands, beaches, and barrier islands that cover about 20,000 square miles. The Marshlands of southern Louisiana is the redfish capital of the world. It is vast and remote, covering over 20,000 square miles and stretching from Texas to the Mississippi border. It is a labyrinth of shallow bays, canals, channels, bayous, and mudflats and loaded with a variety of gamefish and a year ‘round population of redfish. Louisiana is Creole country, a blend of French, African, Spanish and Native American cultures. Louisiana’s largest city is New Orleans, known for Mardi Gras and some of the finest food in the nation. NOLA is often the highlight of any redfish trip to the Louisiana bayou.
