CHARTER FISHING GUIDES & BOATS

We can’t think of any job we’d rather be doing than chartering a boat in the Gulf of Mexico!

Every day brings something new on the open ocean, as we try to figure out where the fish will be and how to get them into the boat. we love it when customers tell us that we took them on the best, most memorable fishing trip ever and we love coming back to the dock with the best catch.

We began running our own boats in early 2007, and it didn’t take us long to realize that people come on fishing trips to have a good time and to get away from work as well as other stressors. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that everyone on board has the best time possible and we love giving people an experience they’ll never forget.

All of our captains are born and raised in Louisiana and have been hunting and fishing all over southeast Louisiana for as long as they can recall. All of our captains knew they wanted to pursue their ultimate dream of being charter captains.

VooDoo Fishing Charters professional philosophy is to do whatever it takes to produce a great fishing trip and don’t be afraid to run or stay late.
We also live by Ricky Bobby’s credo…

“If you’re not first, you’re last.”

In January 2008, I boated my largest wahoo, which weighed in at 94 pounds, and in 2009 my largest yellowfin, which weighed in at 231 pounds.

When we are not chartering, we love family time as well as to fish (go figure!) and hunting above and underwater (spearfishing). The marshes of Venice and Buras are our favorite places to duck hunt and to bow hunt for deer. We love the best of both worlds hunting and fishing above water and hunting and fishing underwater. We, do try to go spearfishing every chance we get too.

Our tenacity, passion, and competitiveness push us to be better fisherman and captains every day. Day in and day out, we are in competition with ourselves, with other companies and with the goal to do better and be better than we were on previous trips.

Charter Captain Chad

Captain Chad Pique grew up in south Louisiana hunting and fishing with his father and brother. Chad started working as a full-time deckhand for Trey in 2009 and it didn’t take him long to become one of the best guides in Venice. Chad started captaining one of our VooDoo Fishing Charter boats in 2012 and now runs a 39′ yellowfin with trip 350’s.

Charter Captain Chris

Captain Chris Helveston, or Captain Heavy as most of us know him, grew up in New Iberia, Louisiana. He has had a love of hunting and fishing his entire life, instilled in him by his father, a well-known hunting camp and deer club manager. After graduating from The University of Louisiana with a degree in Animal Science, he decided to pursue his dream of fishing for a living. While chartering, he racked up several tournament wins.

When Katrina hit in 2005, Captain Chris spent a winter fishing for blue fin tuna from Gloucester, Massachusetts to the outer banks of North Carolina. He eventually took a job as a mate on a private yacht in Costa Rica, where he bill fished the Pacific and had the opportunity to navigate the Panama Canal…a lifelong dream. Chris has fished for all species of fish all over the world.

After he got married and had a daughter, Scout, he decided to try the 8-5 life, but he just couldn’t get fishing out of his blood! Chris enjoys making sure that his customers have the most exciting and entertaining experiences of their lives and loves sending them home with plenty of meat in the ice chests. It’s never a dull moment on Captain Heavy’s 36′ Yellowfin.
