Bourgeois Fishing Charters at the Cajun Vista Inn is only 25 minutes from downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. Our Cajun Vista Inn and our remote Cajun Chalet bring a delve into the world of true “bayou” living. The Cajun Vista Inn is beautifully furnished with a Southern Louisiana Plantation Style that accommodates all corporate business as well as a small family. Most important, we have the absolute best escapes & adventures in New Orleans, LA. We offer the only game in town featuring our newest and most exhilarating fishing adventures at the Chandeleur Islands. Arrive on the bayou/swamp of Lafitte, LA to take a Guided Trip to the fishing grounds of big specks and redfish on Chandeleur Islands of the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Most popular, we offer 7 hours of spin and fly-fishing in our professional Bay Boats that accommodate up to 4 guests per boat, guided by the best fishing Captains on the water.
