Welcome to a World Class Fishing Destination, the Cajun Paradise!!!
Born and raised in southeast Louisiana, Captain Dude!!! Dudenhefer has lived most of his life on the bayou. With endless marshes and a vast network of waterways at his doorstep, Dudenhefer could access some of finest year round fishing grounds in the world.And he learned quickly, mastering the marshes from Shell Beach to Hopedale, Delacroix to Point a la Hache. This was his back yard. There were alligators, porpoises, otters, raccoons, nutria, wading birds, pelicans and waterfowl. The wildlife was fascinating - the fishing phenomenal. And still is. In this diverse fishery, Dudenhefer learned how to target and catch redfish, speckled trout, bass, flounder, black drum and sheepshead in the interior/coastal areas. In the nearby offshore waters he found many other incredible species such as cobia, red snapper jack crevalle and grouper. New Orleans, Louisiana is home of many beautiful and unique areas, hosting one of the world's most renowned fisheries. Just to let you know. the rumors are true about fishing in southern Louisiana. Speckled trout fishing here is the best in the world. When the conditions are right, the most exciting way to catch speckled trout is on top water lures. Louisiana speckled trout fishing brings on explosive strikes with the fish knocking the top water lures out of the water!!! It's not uncommon to reel in 3-6 pound Trophy Trout!!! on a regular basis. They make excellent trophies for your wall and are the Best eating.
