J-Bar Sportsman’s Lodge

112 Galmiche Lane
Buras LA, United States

J-Bar Sportsman’s Lodge is a family owned and operated fishing lodge that was established in 2003. It is conveniently located on the Mississippi River, 20 miles north of Venice, in the quiet fishing community of Empire, Louisiana. The location has convenient access to both the east and west side of the great river.

You will be fishing aboard a 2015 24 ft Bluewave boat that has plenty of fishing space for up to four anglers. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, the boat can get you to the fish in no time, and its ample casting space will delight any angler who comes on board.

J-Bar Sportsman’s Lodge specialize in light tackle fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout, although they have been known to hook a variety of other local species. They pride themselves on their exceptional customer service, treating all customers as guests from the minute they arrive until they depart. They can handle large groups with multiple boats but do not act as a booking agent for multiple parties. They run the trips for their dedicated guests, whether that is a group of two or twelve people.
