Captain Bio

Captain Ed Pitre

Hi, I’m captain Ed Pitre. I was born and raised in Galliano, La. I have been fishing the waterways of south Louisiana since I was a young boy. I am 34 years old and I acquired my captains license at 19 years old. I started my career deckhanding on the m/v Louisiana right out of high school. Soon afterwards I obtained my USCG approved captains license and ran the m/v Louisiana for Captain Steve Tomeny for nine years. I then purchased the m/v Cajun made from Chris Moran and started my own charter fishing buisness, Southern Pride Charters. This past year I was given the opportunity to buy Steve Tomeny Charters. I am honored to carry on this successful thirty year offshore charter fishing business. Come aboard Louisiana’s finest and only multi-passenger offshore fishing vessel. Coming from four generations of commercial fishermen and four sons of my own, I am encouraged to kept this legacy alive! All’s well & Let’s Geaux Fishing!!!!!!

Yes. We encourage all families to fish together. For safety, we provide children life jackets for most children 50 lbs or bigger for smaller children we recommend you bring your own to specifically fit them. 

Yes. We have coolers for your food and drink or you can bring your own cooler. If you want food or drink provided we can accommodate that but there will be an additional charge to cover all expenses.

Yes. We discourage hard liquor but wine or beer is fine. Hard Liquor in our experience doesn’t go well with hot sun or choppy weather so play it safe.

No, except in Louisiana where one is required.   On most federally permitted vessels all of our customers are covered by our vessel license that is paid for by your captain.

Yes,  Although most Captains provide tackle bait and ice in the price of your trip you are more than welcome to bring your own gear.

Watch the weather and talk to your Captain for advice on proper attire. In most cases wear light covered clothing for the sun, appropriate clothing for the daily temperature and soft sole tennis shoes, deck shoes or slip resistant sandals. ( NO CROCS or hard sole boots or shoes)
Most likely the mate will clean the catch at the end of the day. Fish cleaning is usually part of the gratuity for the mate. Ask your captain what an appropriate tip should be for your day’s experience.  (It usually runs 15-20% of the charter price.)
Maybe! Most charters are pretty all-inclusive with fuel, bait, ice, and tackle provided. Some charters run a set price but have a fuel surtax added. Ask your captain about any additional charges before you go.
