Fishing in St. Bernard
Get away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, and spend the day on one of many St. Bernard fishing charters. Known for its diverse fishery, St. Bernard will provide you with the chance to reel in saltwater and freshwater species all on the same trip! The beautiful bayous in the area are brimming with life, with the Gulf of Mexico pumping its rich waters into the productive lakes.
The variety of species that share the brackish waters of St. Bernard will make for some really exciting fishing. You can expect to fill the boat with Speckled Trout and Redfish, while also getting creatures like Largemouth Bass and Garfish to bite. Some of the other species you’ll encounter include Black Drum, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, Grouper, and Flounder.
Half day trips are a great introduction to what will surely be an experience you’ll want to repeat. Booking a full day trip will allow for more flexibility, so you can experiment a little with the various techniques used in the area. You can try catching something on the fly, while bowfishing is great for some real excitement!
Fishing charters in St. Bernard are located along the Delacroix Highway, so you can explore your options with ease. From here, you’ll head out straight to the prolific Louisiana marshes and start reeling in monsters in no time.
Rules & Regulations
This fishing adventure requires you to have a valid Louisiana fishing license, which you can buy online. Note that when fishing in brackish waters south of the saltwater line, you’ll need to have both a freshwater and a saltwater license.
St. Bernard Fishing Seasons
The weather can be cold, but fishing is hot. Marshy backwaters are teeming Trout – they're especially active in Lake Pontchartrain, along with Blue Cats. You can also catch Reds and Drum.
Lake Pontchartrain fishing is still hot. May is considered to be the most productive month for fishing Lake Borgne. If you're after monster Specks, now is the right time.
If you're after Monster Reds, hit the waters of Biloxi Marsh and you won't regret it for a second. Black Drum can get gigantic there this time of the year, too.
