Endorsement: Captain Mike Ledet, aka “Dr. Speck”

One very enjoyable part of this year’s LANREMT EMS Conference in my home state was the opportunity for several of the conference speakers to take a fishing charter with Captain Mike Ledet out of Cocodrie, LA.


Mike’s a full-time deputy for Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Department and does all of their maritime and water rescue. He’s been a fishing guide in the area for 34 years, and knows the surrounding waters like I know my way from the bedroom to the bathroom. We caught a limit of speckled trout, a few gafftop catfish, and five nice bull redfish, despite the fact that Mike had three backlashin’, line tanglin’, fish losin’ amateurs in the boat.

If you’re ever in the area, a fishing charter with Mike is big fun, reasonably priced, and he’ll definitely put you on the fish. Give him a call at the marina at (985) 594-2414 or cell (985) 790-1044 to set up your charter.
