I'm Captain Scott VeZain. I am licensed by the US Coast Guard, Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries and fully insured. I have 40 years of experience fishing in South Louisiana. I'm known for being able to put my customers in the middle of some exciting fish catching action. Fishing is my passion, and I provide quality experiences that are safe and fun for everyone. Experts and novices alike will be absolutely thrilled with Oil Life Charters.
Oil Life Charters, LLC was formed after 33 years working offshore for Shell Offshore, Inc. hence the name Oil Life Charters. I'm based out of Slidell but will trailer where the fish are, as needed. I fish mainly inland water for Speckle Trout, Redfish, Flouder, Black Drum and Ssheephead.
Enjoy inshore fishing along Louisiana's productive Gulf Coast. Oil Life Charters knows the fertile inshore waters from Hopedale, Biloxi Marsh and Delacroix, where the fish are plentiful, ready, and willing to bite. Make your family getaway a memorable one with Oil Life Charters. No experience is necessary, and you may discover a new passion for sun and sea adventuring. In addition, you might be able to experience other sights during any trip, including brown pelicans, ducks, porpoises, alligators, and other swamp animals that might be roaming the banks of our great bayous. Contact us today to book your inshore fishing charter. Making Memories One Fish at a Time!
