Capt. Scott Bryant Biography

Native Texan living most of my childhood and adult life in the Gulf Coast backwaters from Galveston to South Padre Island. My passion for fishing grew from conventional gear to fly in the last 12 years allowing me to focus on the sport rather than the limit. My charter business is customer service oriented with a high degree of safety first and experience next. These guided trips are geared toward sight casting enthusiasts tactfully delivering flies on unsuspecting shallow water dwellers. Since 2018, my wife and I live in the heart of New Orleans allowing me to fish and charter vast Mississippi delta marsh of South Louisiana.  

Charter Expectations:


- Highest Level of Safety

- Sight Cast Opportunities

- Full day (8 hours +)

- Epic/Challenging fishing

- New Experience

- Relationships



Our day begins launching at first light running through the South Louisiana marsh to fish the interior and outer edges for sight cast opportunities on Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle and Sheepshead. Weather plays a significant part of this visual sport, but more importantly it drives safety decisions for the client and guide !
