Meet Captain Chris
FULLY INSURED & USCG LICENSED
My name is Christopher LaBure and I have had passion for fishing since the moment I was able to pick up a pole. I grew up in southern Louisiana one of the most successful fishing destinations in the world, and have spent every chance possible out on the water fishing. At a young age I learned how target reds, drum, flounder, and trout. I still get excited every time I cast out a line, it is in my blood. I knew at a young age that one day I would be a successful charter captain. I have been operating boats since I was 15 years old, and safety is always the number one priority. I am a fully insured and US Coastguard licensed captain. I have fished all over southern Louisiana, and I have yet to find a more productive fishery than Venice. I have become very good at pinpointing where the fish are at, and I have a network of captains who work together to stay on the fish. We all have a vast knowledge of the Venice area and the bounty it has to offer. This is more than just a pay check to me its something I deeply love, and I am not afraid to hit that extra spot or burn those extra few gallons of fuel to make your day special. One of the reasons I became a charter captain is the enjoyment I receive from watching others catch fish, and the excitement on their faces. There is no better feeling than watching someone catch that fish of a lifetime! My goal is to provide you with a box full of fish, a camera full of pictures, a day full of memories that will last forever!
