About Ellender Charters

red fishing charter new orleans

Ellender Charters was created so Captain Josh Ellender could share his passion for the outdoors, especially on the water, with others. In fact, he loves being on the water so much that he chose to join the U.S. Navy and spent over 7 years serving his country. Now don’t let the 7 years of service fool you, his experience of the local waters start back when he was about 10 years old. This was the age when he was allowed to take out a small jon boat and explore Louisiana’s waters, which immediately had him hooked. It was then he figured out he was good at catching fish and this is what he likes to share with his customers. It doesn’t matter if you have never picked up a rod n reel before or if you are seasoned veteran, we cater to all skill levels.


Ellender Charters specializes in customers wants. We make sure that your trip with us will be a lasting memory. If you are interested in catching as many fish as possible, to the point that it is almost work, then so be it, we will do our best to full fill that want.
