January 23 kicks off Mardi Gras season - one of the most exciting times to be down here in New Orleans. The season - which runs through February 9 - gives visitors to the Bayou an opportunity to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday") is the last day of the Carnival season, and always falls on the day before Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent). And while Fat Tuesday is the official Mardi Gras day, we here in New Orleans know how to make the celebration last for several weeks.
Parades, balls, Family Gras - the entertainment is endless this time of year, which is why this is an ideal time to plan your New Orleans Fishing Charter trip with Get the Net Charters.
Why you should plan your fishing charter trip around Mardi Gras
Louisiana benefits from being one of the most sought after destinations for fishing charter trips - no matter the season. But many avid and passive anglers love coming to New Orleans during the winter season, specifically, because of our comfortable weather and ample fish.
Combine that with Mardi Gras season, and what you get is the potential of having the time of your life - on and off the water.
