The Calcasieu Lake is 76.8 square miles of saltwater magic.
Lake Calcasieu produces some of the largest speckle trout along the Louisiana gulf coast. There are marsh and backwaters that a person could get lost in for forever. All full of schools of redfish waiting to give you the fight of a lifetime. Sometimes our backwater excursions will lead us into actual fresh water giving our fishermen a chance of a lifetime to catch both saltwater and freshwater fish at the same time.
Mid to late summer heats up the offshore speckle trout fishing with the chance of catching the ever elusive triple tail or ling.
Only to be followed by one of the greatest fall flounder runs in the world. Nowhere else in North America does such a large body of saltwater flow through such a bottleneck as the lake Calcasieu ship channel.
The speckle trout and redfish are a year line screamers that are waiting to be caught.
Captain Anthony Busceme and the Blackdog team specialize in customizing your fishing trips to meet your needs. Trips depart from Spicer Hughes Marina at 198 Bourg Port Rd, Hackberry, LA 70656 but we are able to pick up and drop off anywhere on the lake including boat side service at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino and L’Auberge Du Lac Casino and Resort.
We will customize your trip to fish when you want, how you want, and where you want.
Multiple boats are available for large groups and family events.
We take our jobs very serious and work diligently to make our customers actively engaged in the trip. Catching fish, understanding where and why we are fishing in certain spots, learning our culture, experiencing nature and everything it has to offer.
