Where to Stay

The Dogwood Lodge is excellent for those interested in just the fishing. You will be picked up by my boat from the lodge and head out to the marsh from there. Check out their website for more info.

The Best Western Plus in Chalmette is great for those who are just interested in fishing, their number is (504)-309-6360

For those who would like to experience New Orleans, The Ritz Carlton (504) 524-1331, Riverside Hilton (504) 561-0500, and Hotel Mazarin (504) 581-7300 are three great hotel options.
