About us

Capt. Andrew Soileau

Andrew Soileau put his passion into practice. Helping folks hook trophy-worthy trout, flounder, and redfish, he hopes to keep his fishing charter business a staple of the area for years to come. I am the owner and operator of High Tide Charters. I grew up about seven minutes from Calcasieu Point Landing which has offered me easy access to the outstanding fishery. My dad introduced me to the sport at about two years old and I have been hooked ever since. I have spent countless days learning about the waterways in this area and how the fish use them. Fishing has always been my greatest passion and I love to share that passion with others. I spend most days chasing speckled trout and redfish in the bay. I love to venture offshore when the weather permits in search of cobia and triple tail. I enjoy fishing, deer and duck hunting, and spending time with my family and friends in my spare time.


High Tide Charters is a fully licensed and insured fishing charter service in Lake Charles Louisiana. We fish out of Big Lake catching Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. We typically leave the dock at first light and head to our first fishing spot while watching an incredible sunrise. There are many places we may head to fish depending on what we are targeting and where the bite has been. Our typical catch is speckled trout, redfish, and maybe a few flounder. This is a unique place and at certain times of the year, it comes alive and everything thrives. Occasionally there are also a few seasonal bites that are outstanding. In the summer you can always expect to catch trout and redfish, and depending on the weather we may be able to go offshore to catch trout on the beach or even fish some rip lines to catch the tasty triple-tail. In the fall the lake comes to life while the shrimp make their way out of the estuary, followed by the famous Calcasieu flounder run. This permits some of the best flounder fishing on the Gulf Coast to take place.
