Garden Bay Charters

Capt. Dustin Bounds Venice, LA Incorporated Licensed Insured

Thank you for checking out Garden Bay Charters. A typical day we leave out at safe light armed with live bait. Our targeted species is Redfish and Speckled Trout. We may hit one spot, we may hit 20 spots, it just depends on how the fishing is. We are devoted to each client to make sure that they get the fishing experience they are looking for. We usually head in around 1:00 pm.

Perfect for a group of four passengers, our full day Venice fishing trip is a great way to spend the day. While we specialize in spinning for Redfish and Speckled Trout, we also catch Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum and Bass. If it’s swimming in the waters of Venice, Louisiana, you can bet we’ll catch it!

Captain Dustin Bounds pilots the 22ft Bay Boat, powered by 200 HP Yamaha and equipped with livewell, GPS, Fishfinder, and all USCG Safety Equipment. This comfortable fishing vessel is geared up to ensure your day of fishing is as successful as possible!

Garden Bay Charters offers a full day (six hour) fishing trip in SE Louisiana for four anglers. If you’re an experienced or novice angler, we can accommodate your trip. We provide all equipment (rods, reels, tackle) and live bait or lures. You’ll need to bring a valid Louisiana fishing license, snacks, drinks (no glass), sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and camera. Also bring along your enthusiasm – it’s going to be a day of making memories!

Venice, Louisiana is an amazing place to fish – arguably the fishing capital of the world.

On a typical trip we usually leave at safe light. We carry live bait. Depending on the Miss. River stage we may fish close to the marina or out towards the outer bays. Our typical fishing method is under a popping cork. We usually return to the dock around 1:00 pm with a boat full of Redfish, Sheepshead, Seatrout, and more.
