Coates Charters

Yscloskey Highway
St. Bernard LA, United States

Coates Charters is an inshore fishing charter service based out of San Bernardo, LA, specializing in light tackle sight fishing for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum. Southeastern Louisiana is famous for its inshore and backcountry fishing, with sheltered bays and murky bayous hiding great fishing grounds full of huge fish just waiting to be reeled in, and Coates Charters will take you to all the best spots for the species you are after.

You will be spending the day aboard a 21 ft Champion center console which has room aboard for up to 4 guests. Powered by a 150HP Yamaha engine, she can cruise at up to 45 knots to make sure you waste no time getting to the best fishing spots. The boat comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a live bait tank, and a trolling motor so you don’t scare off the fish as you navigate the winding backcountry.

Coates Charters is strictly light tackle, giving you the best fight possible against the big bull Reds which inhabit the area. You can choose between sight casting, spinning, and popping to bring in your catch your way, and will be given only the best quality tackle, lures, and live bait in order to give the highest chance possible of landing something special. If you prefer, Captain Jonathan Coates can also take you further out to bottom fish for some delicious Sheepshead and Black Drum in slightly deeper waters.

All trips come with tackle, bait, drinks, snacks, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch at the end of the trip.
