There’s a fish with your name on it in St. Bernard, and Salty Frog Fishing Charters will help you catch it! Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Shawn can tell you all about the local fishery.

Around here it’s common to catch Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and more, depending on the time of year. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, popping, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Capt. Shawn operates a 23’ Bay boat that can carry up to 4 passengers. It has everything you need for a productive day on the water. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is included.

You might need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

It’s always wise to bring snacks, bottled water, sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now and then, the fish might get away, but a day on the water never should. Time to make it happen with Salty Frog Fishing Charters! Can also accommodate large groups with advanced notice. Lodging available through The Patriot Lodge in Hopedale, La where you can wake up and walk to the boat.

Went on the search for trout this afternoon with AJ (Louisiana Fishing Produce Man on YouTube) and Dennis. It didn’t take long until we had hammer trout flying into the boat.
