Captain Shawn Mitchell of SaltyFrog Charters fishes out of the Lake Borgne, Biloxi Marsh, and Delacroix areas of Louisiana chasing redfish and speckled trout. He has had a love of fishing and the outdoors before he could walk. Captain Shawn grew up in Louisiana and is an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. An avid fisherman and family man, Shawn loves to take families fishing. Shawn also partners with pro fisherman and Youtube Fisherman to teach anglers how to catch redfish and speckled trout in Sportsman's Paradise. Fishing with SaltyFrog is not a timed affair. Captain Shawn believes experiences should not have a time limit. He only books one charter a day to give his clients his full attention. Let's go catch some memories!!!
