BLAIZE Charters

We have lived, worked, hunted, and fished

We Know Where The Fish Are

Most outdoorsmen have early memories of hunting and fishing with their fathers or grandfathers. We try to relive those experiences and share new ones with our friends and relatives. Blaize Charters is all about those experiences.

For more than three generations the Blaizes have lived and worked along the mouth of the Mississippi River. PJ and Jacques Blaize have spent hundreds of hours in the marshes fishing and hunting.
