“Awesome Fishing Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

I went fishing with Salty Dog Charters two years ago. We went out the MRGO and around the newly constructed closure and into the bay. Stopped at a rig and fished a bit, nothing! Not even a catfish! No problem, we moved to another rig and got into some sheephead, big ones! We fished around the structure and found some specks and started catching them. A few more refining moves around the same rig and we found the motherlode! Every cast, and some really big ones too. We quickly limited out, and moved back into the marsh to try some redfish. We found some in a shallow area off the channel, and had a ball catching some nice reds there. We headed back in and cleaned the fish at the dock to the delight of the seagulls diving for scraps!

Markham was very helpful, but not overbearing. He is all about helping you catch fish, and doesn't compete with you. It's instantly obvious that he loves fishing and cherishes each moment on the water. His attitude is infectious, and you find yourself cherishing each moment too!

Had a fantastic time. Caught a lot of fish. Great value. Learned a lot. Very pleasant and helpful. I would go again in a heartbeat, just been too busy at work.

“A day on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

All my husband ever talks about is how happy he is when he's on the water and to be able to go on a boat with someone you can trust is even more important. The time spent on salty dog charter is not only fun but relaxing. The water, the laughs, and the life long memories are worth more than anything in the world. Then you catch so much fish that the captain takes what you can't or don't want to keeps out to the streets if New Orleans to feed the citizens free poboys. So you are in turn making a positive impact on the city your visiting or live in. I highly recommend salty dog, it's captain, and their mission statement! 5 stars since it won't let me give more!
