Hackberry Rod & Gun

“Ya shoulda been here yesterday”

Originally founded in 1975, Hackberry Rod & Gun boasts some of the best light-tackle saltwater fishing and duck hunting on the entire Gulf Coast. Situated in the southwest corner of Louisiana, the small town of Hackberry has become known as the “Speckled Trout Capital Of The World”. Famous with sportsmen from all over the United States. Calcasieu Lake and the food rich fertile marshes, offer an opportunity to experience an unequaled fishing or duck hunting trip of a lifetime.

Under the ownership of Kirk, Guy & Bobby Joe Stansel and their commitment to quality and customer service the lodge has grown into the largest and most respected professional guide service in the country. “The Boys” as they are known began their careers here in the late 70’s as teenagers and still today strive to make each trip the best possible experience.

We charter up to 16 boats every day staffed with licensed professional guides. Most of who grew up right here on the lake. Dining at the lodge is second to none. Authentic Cajun meals originally cooked and served by their mother Martha, are still the center piece of our kitchen. If you lose any weight during your stay “its’ your fault”

Our entire staff is professional and full of personality to make your experience enjoyable and memorable.
