Bayou Country Charters

Kenal Road
Lafitte LA, United States

Based out of Lafitte, Louisiana, Bayou Country Charters specializes in catching Redfish and Speckled Trout. Team up with Captain Joel Barras and show those fish what for! Veteran anglers and novices alike love these trips, and it takes only a single one to get hooked for life.

You’ll be fishing on a 21’ bay boat that’s ready to take you and three other anglers out to the most productive waters around. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, it can reach a top speed of an impressive 43 knots, making sure you’re on the fish in mere minutes. It’s also outfitted with a Minn Kota wireless trolling motor, an immense help when dealing with fish that are otherwise easily spooked.

As for the fish themselves, going after Speckled Trout and Redfish is the name of the game in these waters. Of course, there are plenty of other fish in the sea, including Black Drum and Flounder, so you’ll always have something to do when fishing around here.

Capt. Joel will provide you with all the fishing gear you’ll need, including rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Not only that, but he’ll clean and bag the catch after the trip for your convenience. Just make sure you come bearing a valid fishing license and a pair of polarized sunglasses, and you’re all set for a day to remember!

Awesome day… Capt Joel was fun and continued to “grind” all day. His determination, to find the fish, was truly appreciated.
Highly recommend Capt Joel

I sent my son, his dad and his grandfather on this charter for my sons 13th birthday. even though he didn’t catch the max amount of fish he had a blast!!! The captain really made sure they all had a fantastic time. I would recommend this charter but most importantly this Capatain not a sub.
