Eleven Experience Outpost Mothership Louisiana

Tailing Redfish and Black Drum on the pristine southern Louisiana Bayou

While skimming the calm glass surface of the bayou en route to the guide’s favorite salt flat, it is hard to imagine this wilderness is only a short distance from the bustling nightlife and five-star Cajun cuisine of downtown New Orleans, yet here you are. Absolute comfort in a fully refitted exclusive Hatteras, guides that know the water better than their living room, skiffs crafted for skinny water, and eager fall bull-reds churning like a freight train across mudflats. Welcome to Eleven’s Louisiana mothership experience.

Fishing

Waters south of Houma offer endless marshes, salt flats, tidal rivers and lakes, and the largest population of redfish, including massive bull-reds and black drum in skinny water. Regional guides navigate this labyrinth in custom Glide & Hells Bay skiffs accessing the most remote water in this biosphere.

Accommodation

Taking the live-aboard experience to new heights, Eleven’s 61 foot Hatteras offers a four guest capacity in four staterooms and two baths. In addition, this fully air-conditioned vessel features a living room and bar area for gathering, a commercial galley with a professional chef, and satellite TV.

Gear

For redfish, a 9-foot, 8, or 9 wt. rod, a large arbor smooth drag saltwater reel and warm-water, weight-forward floating line is ideal. Leaders commonly measure 9 to 12 feet, with 15- or 20-pound tippet. Temperatures vary; check the forecast and the Frontiers pre-trip for packing information.

United States – Eleven Experience Louisiana – Redfish 2020 Fall Dates

As a kid on the intercostal of Florida, we used to paddle right by them in search of the more coveted prize of spotted sea trout or flounder. Of course, in those days, we called them red drum and did not think much of it. Wow, if I had a time machine, what an amazing trip I could have it I hopped back to 1979 with my fly rod in hand; who knew.
