Capt. Todd Black

Capt. Todd Balck Cajun Custom Rods Pro-Staff

I am honored to be a member of the Cajun Custom Rods Pro-Staff and in the company of so many elite anglers. I recently left the corporate sales world to finally pursue my passion for charter fishing. Although, I have only been a charter captain for a short time; I have been a fisherman out of Cocodrie, LA all of my life. I began fishing with my father at a young age out of Cocodrie, LA. He truly taught me the ins and outs of the waterways around South Louisiana and for that I will always be grateful. I obtained my 100 ton Masters License from the United States Coast Guard. I am the owner and operator of Black Velvet Charters. After my dad passed away I completely renovated his 25’ Halter and named my new company after his beloved boat “The Black Velvet” in his honor. We offer premier inshore and offshore charter fishing adventures. Whether you want to catch trout aboard the 25’ Halter “The Black Velvet” or head offshore aboard the 33’ Freeman “Miss Kim”, Black Velvet Charters can accommodate your needs. Check out our webpage or call (601)-606- 6937 to book a trip today.

I love catching all types of fish. My favorite fish to catch are large trout, also known as “Big Girls”, mangrove snapper, and cobia. In 2014, I briefly held the Louisiana state record Mangrove Snapper which weighed in @ 15.15lbs and won the 2014 Star Tournament in the Mangrove Snapper Division. As much as I love catching fish, my true passion is providing my customers with a unique and memorable fishing experience.

In addition to Cajun Custom Rods, I am honored to be a Pro-staff member for Simms, DOA Lures, Wet Sounds, and Orca Coolers.
