Bayou Bandits

Looking for some adrenaline-pumping saltwater action? Being a true angler’s Mardi Gras, Louisiana fishing has so much to offer, and Saint Bernard is no exception. Bayou Bandits will show you the hottest lake fishing spots, both inshore and offshore, and make sure you never forget the mesmerizing scenery and the unique beauty of the bayou.

Step aboard a 22’ bay boat manufactured by Champion in 2005 and let it take you on an adventure of a lifetime. The vessel is powered by a 225 HP Evinrude engine capable of reaching a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots.

It can accommodate up to four anglers and is fully equipped for a successful day on the water. You’ll find everything you need on board, from safety equipment and navigational electronics to live bait tanks, and ice-boxes.

Captain Jacob Chapman is a seasoned captain with over 30 years of experience, and he’ll show you the most productive spots and the most efficient techniques for landing the catch. You’ll be targeting Redfish and Speckled Trout in inshore and offshore lake waters. So get ready for a light tackle battle to remember!

You’ll be using lures and live bait (bought before the trip), and both will be included in the price. All the fishing equipment and catch cleaning and filleting are provided free of charge too. Lodging is available at an additional cost. Bayou Bandits loves taking kids fishing, so don’t hesitate to bring your little bandits along. Just make sure to buy a valid fishing license before the trip, and you’ll be good to go on an unforgettable adventure.

I grew up on the water and I'm very passionate about fishing and guiding. My grandad was also an angler and he was the one who got me into fishing in the first place. He used to take me on fishing trips, just the two of us, and teach me about fishing. With over 30 years of experience, I also love teaching my guest everything I know about angling.
