Bourgeois Charters’ school of skilled casters leads Coast Guard–approved fishing and crabbing charters atop the azure ripples of Barataria Bay. With a crew of up to two, 24-foot bay boats launch from the shores in search of speckled trout, flounder, red fish, and Aquaman’s house keys. After a day of water hunting, Bourgeois Charters cleans, cuts, and packs whatever maritime bounties guests rustle up. Alternatively, crabbing guests run the shell-snagging traps themselves, and snare bucketfuls of crimson sea critters.
Each of Bourgeois Charters’ tours fills bellies with provided sandwiches and sodas, which allows participants to refuel without cooking their catches with concentrated sunbeams. Although the required fishing license is not included in today’s deal, customers can purchase a charter passenger license from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for a $5 fee.
