Our Mission

  Our goal when we set out to develop The Gear Up Fish Camp was to provide a clean, convenient, and cost effective place for anglers and hunters to stay when visiting our amazing fishery.  Fishing in St Bernard Parish can only be described as one of the most unique fisheries in the world.   


   Whether your sitting on our screened in dock, or sleeping in our freshly cleaned beds we strive to make your trip as easy going as possible. So come on in and stay with us to enjoy a carefree trip of catching and relaxing next to the beautiful Bayou Loutre in Hopedale, La. 

FUN FACT: The name “Gear Up” comes from a long line of Boat names the owner’s family used for his previous boats. The owner was in the marine propulsion business(sold a lot of gears) and was going on a Business Trip when his plane slid to a scary landing because the pilot left the GEAR UP.   So, Gear Up stuck and we are passing it down to the new fish Camp!!  We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
