Hi Dan: My name is Ellie and I live in Arizona. My father (age 80) lives in Las Vegas. He wants to take one more fishing trip before he checks out, and I have no idea where to take him. O would fly into Vegas to get him, then he says he wants to do ocean fishing, like flounder. I can’t take the trip until the beginning of October. Where would be a good place that isn’t too cold and windy for him. Also, I would want to charter a boat for just he and I just in case he needs to come back to land (heart problems). It would just be a day trip. Can you help me with planning? Thank you for your consideration.

You are in luck. Flounder fishing in October in Louisiana is prime. The charter service you can check with is going to be with Captain Kerry Milano. The charter will not be more than thirty miles from land so if any problems would result, you are still close enough. The flounder is a fascinating and sought after fish. The flounder catch is at its best in October and November off the Gulf Coast of Louisiana. The name of the charter company is Outer Limits and is located in Venice, Louisiana. The charter experience should be exciting for you and your father. The Captain is always there to help with bringing in the flounders that you catch. This means that your dad will have no problems landing the fish. He can have pictures taken and you will have the memories. I think you will have a great time. They also have other charters available, so if you change your mind about flounder fishing, they also fish for tuna, marlin and kingfish and all the other species in the ocean. The trip should be enjoyable and memorable for both you and your father. Flounder fishing or any type of ocean fishing is exciting. The weather you are looking for in October is found off the shores of Louisiana. The weather will be just right for flounder fishing. Not to hot and not to cold. It will be just right. Call the Captain and have a talk with him about the dates when he can get you in for some fishing.
