Southbound Fishing Charters

7600 Hopedale Highway
St. Bernard LA, United States

 Southbound Fishing Charters offers a selection of fishing trips out of Saint Bernard, LA, targeting the awesome inshore species the area is known for. Southeast Louisiana has a wide variety of habitats which combine to allow year-round fishing opportunities. Fall and winter see you stalking the marshy backwaters, spring will find you fishing around the Breton Sound as well as the Barrier Islands, where you can spend the whole summer dropping lines.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 22 ft Sea Hunter BX22 center console with room aboard for up to 4 guests. She is powered by a 150HP Yamaha four stroke outboard, as well as a small and silent trolling motor to help sneak up on spooky fish. The boat comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell full of great bait, and everything you will need for your day on the water.

Southbound Fishing Charters specializes in targeting the Redfish and Speckled Trout which populate the local waters, and everything on board has been selected and tailored to help bring in these species. On your trip you will be supplied with high quality light tackle casting, spinning, jigging, and popping gear, and will be given the choice of live bait or lures. The captain will help you pick the most effective techniques depending on what has been working on recent trips, and you will be taken to the very best spots around in order to land the biggest and baddest these murky waters have to offer. When you get back to the dock all your catch will be cleaned and filleted ready for eating, so remember to bring a big cooler!
