Bio: My name is Capt. Gene Dugas. I am a native-born Louisianan and have fished the waters of southeastern Louisiana all my life. I am one of the most consistently successful New Orleans fishing guides in the area. On our "adventure", I will gladly show you some of the techniques and tricks specific to these waters that are acquired with years of fishing experience. I will personally take the time to show you and your group what is necessary to ensure a successful fishing trip and a good time.
