Sit back, relax and let Chandeleur Charters show you what the Chandeleur Islands fishing experience is all about. The Chandeleur Islands, situated off the Mississippi and Louisiana coastlines in the Gulf of Mexico, are home to some of the greatest saltwater fishing in the world.

Your Captain

Your Captain is Robert ‘Troy’ Fountain. He is Coast Guard Certified, carries a 200-ton Masters license, and is a card holder of the Mississippi Charter Boat Captains Association (MCBCA). Your deckhands are CPR certified and drug tested, and are also members of the MCBCA. At Chandeleur Charters, we believe deckhands can truly make or break a trip. That’s why we pride ourselves in keeping properly trained, hard-working, hospitable hands on deck.

The Compass Rose

Your mothership is the Compass Rose, a 87 ft. Broward converted yacht with twin-diesel engines and two diesel generators.  The Compass Rose transports a fleet of six 14′ flat-bottom skiffs, fully-rigged and ready for fishing. You’ll find more information about our skiffs, here.

Fishing, Fun, Hospitality

In addition to experiencing some of the best fishing the Gulf Coast has to offer, you’ll be treated to top-notch service from the time you set foot on the dock. When you wake up, breakfast will be ready for you, and our deckhands will be readying your skiff for the day. They’ll load your tackle, gear, and drinks, while you get ready to head out for the day. When you return to the Compass Rose, all you have to do is step off the skiff and relax. We’ll unload all your gear and get your fish on ice while you sip a cold drink and enjoy a hot meal of either our famous steak night, our specialty lunch shrimp tacos, or our homemade jambalaya.
