The biggest claim to fame this fishing charter business has is that Captain Phil is a television fishing expert, but he also has a really good staff that knows what they're doing. Using Captain Phil's fishing charter service is better than other choices because of how many secret fishing spots the crew knows about. This service leaves from the dock around 6:00 to 6:30 a.m. and returns around 2:30 p.m. The early return allows you to catch a quick nap at your Lafitte Inn before the evening fun begins. The best part is that your fee is going to cover just about everything necessary for your trip, including bait.

In addition to the chartered tour you can book with one of the 15 guides that work at Joe's, you can also book a fishing rodeo for your vacation. A fishing rodeo is a perfect opportunity for those fishermen who get a little competitive. With the fishing rodeo you and your party, no matter the number, will go out on the boat or even fish right from the pier. The point of the fishing rodeo is to catch the biggest fish, based on weight, by the end of the day.
