Hunting, fishing app the ‘Airbnb for sportsmen’

Hunt and fish for this app. Waitr founder Chris Meaux is backing a new startup that bills itself as the “Airbnb for sportsmen,” according to a news report from Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.

Mallard Bay is an online marketplace for guides, outfitters, charter captains and lodging for people looking to book hunting and fishing trips co-founded by recent LSU graduate Logan Meaux — who also happens to be Chris Meaux’s son.

The app was developed after bad communication with an outfitter led to a terrible trip. Logan Meaux teamed up with co-founder Joel Moreau and entered Mallard Bay into the J Terrell Brown Venture Challenge at LSU last year. He placed in the top three, began building the business, and the website came online in November 2021.
