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 Borgne fishing during February is all about drop-offs and deeper spots, such as the Bypass, the Unknown Pass, and the Hospital Wall. You can catch Reds, Trout, Sheepshead, and more. 
The spring is finally here, and the waters are warming up. The end of the month is the time of the Redfish Cup series finals. Don't miss the Louisiana Crawfish Festival, either.
Fishing for Red and Black Drum in Biloxi Marsh is still great. You can also head out to Breton Sound and the Barrier Islands for a productive day on the water.

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.

June is the month with the most rainfall in the area, but also provides some of the best fishing. Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, Breton Sound, and Black Bay offer an incredible variety of targets. 
This is the perfect time for some productive Black Bay and Breton Sound fishing. Start with shallow waters in the morning and then move into deep, cooler waters during the day.
In addition to July, this is the best month for exploring Black Bay and Breton Sound. The waters are warm and fishing for Specks and Reds is hot. 
Fall fishing begins and it's all about light tackle and natural bait. This is the best time to target schools of Trout. Fishing for Specks in Shell Beach can be especially fruitful. 
October is the time of the Violet Oyster Festival, as well as some of the best Trout fishing. Redfishing is also great. This is also one of the best times for Lake Borgne angling. 

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.

Apart from November, this is the best time to go after giant Redfish in Biloxi Marsh. You can also catch Sheepshead, Trout, and Black Drum on Lake Borgne in December.

Try to pick the right day weather-wise. Listen to the captain's tips. I'm a long time fisherman but not at this type of fishing. Don's knowledge was very helpful.
