We will converge on Venice, Louisiana, one of the fishiest places in the U.S. for a combination of world-class inshore and offshore fishing or whichever December-weather allows.
Journey South Outfitters
Who better to show us all that Louisiana has to offer than the experienced crew at Journey South Outfitters? Capt. Eric Newman, Capt. Moe Savoy Newman and Capt. Nick Campos bring three lifetimes of experience in fishing Louisiana’s diverse and prolific waters.
Journey South Outfitters is the culmination of many years of hard work and the dream to start their own lodge. Capt. Eric said, “It is our goal to offer our clients an incredible overall experience here at Journey South. We promise to plan, prepare and perform in all aspects of your adventure to make it a success. That includes great accommodations, excellent food and Southern hospitality. We listen to what you want to do and make a plan and preparations to do our best to succeed.”
Besides lots of fishing, Capt. Eric’s background includes having worked in some of Louisiana’s finest restaurants, including owning his own upscale bistro. This love of great food carries over heavily into the Journey South experience.
What could be better than having your fresh catch transformed into incredible dishes and sushi?
Capt. Moe Savoy Newman also draws upon a lifetime of fishing Louisiana and puts that experience to work in her pursuit of everything that swims.
Capt. Moe has been in the spotlight of the fishing world for some time.
Her fame is well deserved, as her dedication is second to none.
Capt. Nick Campos was born and raised in Southern Louisiana and has spent his life fishing, free diving and hunting. He has fifteen years of offshore fishing experience and is now teamed up with Journey South Outfitters.
Capt. Moe said, “We rely on many years of experience in the marsh, bayous, rigs, and offshore waters of South Louisiana to exceed your expectations. We meticulously plan every aspect of your journey to ensure your satisfaction from the boat to the table.”
Journey South Outfitters has a fleet of state-of-the-art fishing boats, each designed to excel in the varying fisheries of Louisiana. Whether you want to fish the deep blue with towering oilrigs or in just a few inches of water, they have a boat for the job. Each rig is outfitted with only the finest equipment that is well maintained and ready for action.
