Fishing in Jefferson Parish


Fish Jefferson 2022 Logo

Fishing, just like in many Louisiana coastal communities, is a 365-day adventure in Jefferson Parish and with our liberal limits there will be plenty for you to bring home. Each season brings about new challenges for anglers. Whether saltwater or fresh — Jefferson has the perfect "fishing hole" for you. Winter is the perfect season for catching freshwater crappies or sac-au-lait, and you may even catch the bass spawning. Spring delivers the cats, flathead and blues, while the summer heat brings on the redfish and tarpon. Autumn brings large mouth bass teeming in our marshes and rivers. Don't have a boat or a reel? No problem! Hire one of our experienced Charter Boat Captains to take you on the trip of a lifetime!

Catch & Cook

After a day on the water, you can have your fresh catch prepared and served to you by a professional chef. The Louisiana Catch & Cook program brings together recreational fishing and the restaurant industry. Let a chef prepare your catch-of-the-day to perfection. It doesn't get any fresher than that! Contact Acme Oyster House and Restaurant des Familles for more info.
