The Finest Fishing Guides in Lake Charles Area


Captains Jeff, Mary, and Nick Poe, the owners of Big Lake Guide Service, would like to invite you to Southwest Louisiana to enjoy the finest light tackle and fly fishing Southwest Louisiana has to offer. Our service is located on the eastern shoreline of Calcasieu Lake due east of Hackberry, La, and just south of Lake Charles, La. For the last 35 years, Big Lake Guide Service has been providing the best fishing and hunting opportunities in the area. For anglers looking for more adventure, we offer trips to the Gulf of Mexico as well. On these trips we target speckled trout, redfish, cobia (ling/lemonfish), as well as tripletail. We are the only charter service in Southwest Louisiana which holds a Federal Pelagics Permit, which allows us to legally keep cobia with customers on board our vessel.


Calcasieu Lake and Lake Charles Fishing


All of our Calcasieu Lake fishing guides are U.S. Coast Guard and Louisiana licensed and insured, to guide you safely through your Louisiana fishing adventure. All of our captains are full time and have a combined professional guiding experience of over 140 years on Calcasieu Lake, its surrounding tributaries, and nearshore platforms of the Gulf of Mexico. They are professional, knowledgeable, personable, helpful, and friendly. Most of them have grown up on or near the waterway and its tributaries, therefore they know it like their own backyard. We also offer incredible waterfowl hunts during the fall and winter hunting season. Needless to say, we can set you up with any combination Cast and Blast Combo Trip youʼd like.
