Freshwater Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
Photo Album
The weather is beginning to cool off and the water temperature is dropping. This signals the shad to start moving around. This is a great period on Toledo Bend to fish for sacalait (crappie). Fishing brush tops in the 15-25ft range water depth are key. The sacalait are filling up on shad, minnows, and small fry. We throw the Slim Jimmy in Salt N Pepper color this time of year because of the....  Read More

Here is one way to minimize spooking deer in your foodplots when walking by or into the plot. Before you mow it all down to plant, consider leaving a little standing. Good luck.

  • Slim Jimmy pictured with 1/16oz and 1/32oz jig.
The best way to rig the Slim Jimmy for catching big bream and sacalait is on a 1/32oz or 1/16oz jig head. This rig gives the Slim Jimmy its most action. Typically we rig on a jig head with a crimp weight 6-8 inches above our jig for the lure to get down in the brush pile quicker. This also adds a little different action to the bait. Go to www.cajunlures.com or visit Railside in Broussard, LA to....  Read More

I made it up to my hunting property this past Saturday in Catahoula Parish only to find that a bear had broken into my camper. He ripped open the door like a tin can went inside and ripped down the stove top exhaust cover and fan from the wall. He then proceeded to open up the cabinets, turned on a light, opened the refrigerator, and flipped over some of the cushions and mattresses. He found 2-3....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I am still in shock! I was fishing around the Sulphur mine on Saturday, using the trolling motor to move down the southeast side to the point and then work the southwest side with the gravel for reds. Had a close friend and his 22 year old son with me. I could see a boat coming from Last Island toward the point I was trolling around and that boat was coming fast. That boat pulled up about 50....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
We have a good news/bad news situation to report this evening from Sweetwater Marina on beautiful Delacroix Island. Good news first. The conditions are prime with clean calm water and very little wind and the fish are biting, both Reds and Trout with a few nice Drum in the mix. The Trout bite is still steadier on the outside, but you can find keepers on the inside. Reds and Drum are....  Read More

Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
What chip should I buy to get the lake pontchartrain detailed map? I hate to get the wrong one. I know the lakes maps doesn't have it. I can't see the detailed info in the blue chip to tell if it's covered.

Bass Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
With the cooler weather, it seems like the fish are beginning their fall patterns. We saw a lot of shad moving around in the mornings and late evenings. With bass schooling up to feed on the balls of shad. Some fish are still deep while others are moving up shallow. Big Worms and Crankbaits are producing fish in the mornings and evenings. Soon we will be able to get bites on shad-type lures.....  Read More

The little brother, and myself, headed down to good ol Cocodrie Louisiana to give the trout something to chew on and boy did we ever! We wound up catching over each a limit and losing a few in the process also yielding some catches that were rendered too small. We played catch and release with a few trout, reds and sheephead but overall wound up with a damn good mess of fish! We probably had....  Read More

We had a cancelation for a gator hunt so we took the opportunity to make it a family trip. The gators are acting a little funny and are not aggressively feeding. Most lines have nice gators under them but they are not commiting to the baits. We did manage some nice ones and had a great time in the Delacroix marsh. We also spotted a few teal moving into the area. This is why we leave the dogs....  Read More

I just moved back to the state and haven't been to Old River in years. I want to make a sac-a-lait trip sometime this week and plan to launch at Old River landing. Really don't have a clue as to where to begin. From the landing, which direction should I go, left/right, straight across, etc?

Thanks in advance.
