Captain MICHAEL PITTMAN


Just southeast of New Orleans, in some of the richest marshlands in North America, is a world-class fishery.

Being a Louisiana fishing guide takes experience, skill, and most of all, passion. As a Louisiana native and life-long fisherman, I’ve spent the last 15+ years guiding professionally. South Louisiana (SoLa) Guide Service grew from a love for fishing Louisiana’s waters.

I specialize in saltwater sight fishing from Hopedale and Delacroix (the west side of the Mississippi) to Myrtle Grove, Port Sulphur, and Venice (the east side of the Mississippi).

Sight fishing in the marsh is as much hunting as it is fishing; as you search for redfish, black drum, sheepshead, trout, and jack crevalle.

Being a full-time, year-round guide allows me to stay in tune with the subtle changes in our fishery. Whether we’re casting a fly to a tailing redfish or stalking the marsh for finicky sheepshead, one of the benefits of fly-fishing Louisiana is our never-ending season. There is always something to catch in the marsh.

However, while fly fishing is the primary goal on guided trips, I also provide light, conventional tackle for those tough days.

I welcome fishermen of all ages and skill levels, from first timers to seasoned anglers.
