For an enjoyable day on the water full of fun and fishing action, turn to Bayou State Guide Service. Starting out of St. Bernard, Louisiana, you and Captain Ricky Hunt will head out to the area’s inshore and nearshore waters as well as lakes and have a great time chasing various species that roam these grounds. The captain’s got over 20 years of guiding experience and over 40 years of fishing experience in the Delacroix area, making him a veteran angler who’ll make sure you have a successful trip. Book today and make a lifetime memory on the water.

You’ll fish from a 24’ Blazer Bay 2400 bay boat that can take up to 5 guests. It runs on a 300 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots that will quickly take you to the fish. The onboard navigation technology is comprised of modern GPS and fishfinder systems, allowing fast and precise locating of the fish. The boat’s also got a wireless trolling motor, a livewell, and an ice-box.

You’ll be chasing Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout by spinning and popping on light tackle. Any kids are welcome to join the trip and you can choose whether you’ll release or keep the fish you catch.

Captain Ricky will provide you with tournament-quality rods, reels, and tackle, live bait, as well as bottled water. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch for free. The only thing you’ll need is valid fishing licenses.
