Those who really crave recreational and sports fishing will be quickly satisfied. Whether you prefer the challenges of the open ocean and offshore fishing or the subtleties of the backwater swamp and marsh, rest assured that you’ll find the best fishing right here in Terrebonne Parish.
The islands along the coast and inland bays are particularly “fertile ground” for speckled trout in the summer and redfish in the fall. Terrebonne Parish is also a great place to fish species like flounder, red snapper, cobia and king mackerel. Just a few miles from shore, sport fishermen will find the finest boue marlin, yellowfin tuna, wahoo and mahi mahi.
Good charter services, which can be hired for a half or whole day, are plentiful in the area. For a list of charter services in Terrebonne Parish, visit http://www.houmatravel.com.
We have prime hunting land here in Sportsman’s Paradise, especially for waterfowl. During the hunting season from November to January, large flocks of green and blue wing teal, mallard, pintail, redhead and canvas back ducks literally fill the sky. Hunters will also discover blue, white and speckled-belly geese soaring across Terrebonne Parish’s hunting grounds. The parish’s plentiful supply of waterfowl offers ample opportunity for the experienced and novice hunter alike.
Augusta, Georgia may have its famous azaleas and dogwoods, but, for the golfer or golfer-to-be, Terrebonne Parish has something even better. We think of it as breathtaking – our stunningly beautiful golf courses filled with huge native live oaks draped with graceful Spanish moss. You will find the courses both technically challenging and awe-inspiring in their natural beauty.
