Bob Rugeley's Fishing Trip

With Ripps' Charters, you get "Da Bess fo Less". Ripp takes you on a full day of fishing in a 22' Team Avenger powered by a 200 hp Yamaha.

Starting at safe light, your adventure begins by cruising down the bayou. Along the way, Ripp shares some of the folklore and history of the people, pirates and Cajuns who have lived here over the last 250 years.


Ripp is a lifelong resident of Lafitte, the bayou town 45 minutes south of New Orleans named after the pirate Jean Lafitte. Here in this region, a maze of waterways connects the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. In between are marshes, swamps, ponds and canals teeming with sealife feeding in these nutrient rich waters.


Sometimes, 3 generations fish together with RippRipp specializes in fishing Speckled Trout & Redfish with light tackle. A day on one of his charters is a sure fire recipe for fast action and lots of excitement. All you need to do is dress casually and comfortably, relax, and bring an ice chest with what you like to eat and drink. Make sure it's a big ice chest because all fish caught are yours.

In fact, Ripp expertly cleans, filets, and bags your catch as well.
