Hi, my name is Captain Devin and welcome to my website. I am an avid inshore angler, former charter captain and compete in redfish tournaments. The knowledge I have used to achieve success I share here on the Louisiana Fishing Blog.
Fishing for speckled trout and redfish is the crown jewel of angling in Louisiana because Louisiana boasts the world’s most generous creel limits. If you’ve never been to the vast marshes and saltwater bays of Louisiana’s coast then you are missing out on the experience of a lifetime. I live for these experiences and share them on this website.
Come on in, stay awhile and learn about our culture of Fishing Smarter. We are students of the marsh and strive to think outside the box, understand fish behavior and try new techniques. This is Fishing Smarter at its core.
We share how we Fish Smarter through our arsenal of content. We put the very best knowledge and insights into articles that entertain, inspire and educate. We are there at the ground level, fishing the same waters you do, putting what we know into an easy-to-understand format. With insightful discussion and angler interviews, our Inshore Interviews podcast gives you the information you need to succeed on the weekends. Listen in to our podcast and learn our guest’s secretive fishing tactics and techniques.
We also operate a fishing report forum, called Louisiana Fishing Reports, that is open to the public and free to use.
