Dirty Water Charters

Capt. Lain Goodwin of Dirty Water Charters was born and raised just outside New Orleans in Louisiana. Growing up about a mile from Lake Pontchartrain afforded Lain his first fishing experiences and in fact, his first fish was caught in the lake while fishing with his brothers. Lain truly got hooked on fishing several years later, in elementary school, while spending time with his best friend and his friends family. He spent months at a time in the summers with the family in Grand Isle learning to fish. His Passion for fishing carried on into college.

After moving to Florida in 1999 Lain bought a boat and fell in love with the everglades. He started fishing some local inshore tournaments and the competition led him to explore the area, experiment with fishing techniques, study the moon etc… Over the years Lain noticed patterns and fine tuned his skills. The exploration and discovery was just as fun as the fishing! During these tournaments and the time spent being on the water, Lain befriended many of the local guides and by 2003 they were encouraging Lain to become a guide himself. That is when he quit his corporate sales and management job, started Dirty Water Charter, and became a fishing guide!
