New Orleans Traditions Combine: Charter Fishing & The Po-Boy Festival

Most avid fishermen know the longstanding reputation New Orleans has as being one of the most bountiful fishing spots in the entire country. But New Orleans isn't just known for its outstanding inland saltwater fishing. It's also known as a city built on great food and music. Both of those will be on display at the 9th Annual Oak Street Po-Boy Festival, which takes place on Sunday, November 22 (from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

November is a great time to come down to do some New Orleans charter fishing

Far too many fishing charter destinations across the country are limited because of weather. As soon as late October hits, the temperature begins to dip too low, making it difficult and uncomfortable for fishermen to enjoy their time out on the water. But that's just one of the many reasons why New Orleans remains a hotbed for the most avid fishermen out there - because every day in New Orleans is a great day to fish.

But on one weekend in November, it won't just be a great time ... it'll be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to soak up all of the culture and nature that the Crescent City has to offer.

The po-boy sandwich is as New Orleans as it comes and is truly celebrated during the Po-Boy festival. At the festival you'll get to enjoy local delicacies such as Pork Tenderloin Po-Boys, Reuben Po-Boys, The Drunk Pig Po-Boy (slow-roasted pork marinated in dark beer), Fried Maine Lobster Po-Boy and so much more. Oak Street essentially becomes one big walking buffet of endless options for you to choose from. And, with every bite, comes some of the best music you'll hear, from favorites including Mia Borders, Eric Bolivar & Friends, and 3 Piece Spicy.
