Inshore Fishing in Bayou Bienvenue in Southeast Louisiana
Video of catching a big alligator gar while fishing plastics around Bayou Bienvenue last fall. This is a very freak occurrence in my experience. I fought it gently because the hook was a thin wire 2/0 with a 12lb mono leader.

Jimmy Corley you can contact him by phone at (504) 258-4431, by email at cap.jimmy.corley@gmail.com, also you can go check....  Read More

Good times out on the water today. First spot had 110 trout willing to come aboard then nothing. Made one move and picked up the last 15 for our 125 speck limit. Everyone on the boat was getting doubles back to back and couldn't believe how fast the fish were coming in. Double rigged matrix shad pulled every one of the fish on the boat.
For your day catching fish give me a call.

You now cant run a mud boat in Plaquemines Parish unless you are on your private land and/or you have written permission from who you are leasing from. If you have to pass through public land or someone elses property to get there your are doing so illegally.

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

The Speckled Trout bite continued this week out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront Motel in Leeville. Monday and Friday morning were a little rough with the 10-15 Southeast wind, and a stalling front, but even mother nature could not stop the big Trout as they are now pigging out. Limits are easily obtained as long as you exercise patience.

This week the new moon....  Read More

How many trout are you aloud to catch in one day? Does it change if you give your fish away? What happens if you and 3 others fish catch 100 trout and you give yours to the others now do they have too many in their possion?

O.K. there's something I've been thinking about regarding the Federal Snapper Commercial(Charter) vs. Recreational season length. If I'm understanding my recreational boat will get 10 days while the charter boats will get 45 days.....????? So we all know the story when you factor in working during the week and weather I might get 1-2 trips, and that's if me and my crew get's lucky enough....  Read More

The company that I usually deal with for the Houma Oilman's Rodeo decided that they were not going to participate this year. So I teamed up with Topwater Charters for Friday and Saturday. Friday we caught speckled trout and bullreds. Saturday we caught speckled trout, redfish, and drum. We used live minnows, live shrimp and crabs for bait.

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Venice in Southeast Louisiana
Rewarding Uncle
Captain Paul, I am a native of Louisiana currently living in Texas. I have a Texas registered 28' boat with twin 300 Verados joystick steering. Want to tow the boat to Venice to take my uncle fishing offhsore for tuna (Thunder Horse, Diana, Hoover coordinates if you have them).

Response by Captain Paul
Yesterday at 4:07pm
Hoover ~ Diana is south of Galveston Texas
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Gentle Rain ~

Unless you are going east ward in the gulf from Venice, you would be using South West Pass. It is the main pass to the Mississippi River. Use caution as you will encounter sea going vessels coming and leaving the area. give then a clear berth and you should not be anchored when they pass.

As for the easy part; there are two marinas in Venice that should be able to accommodate your boat and trip. There is even over night stays in cabins, etc.

Check out these:

CYPRESS COVE MARINA 226 CYPRESS COVE, VENICE, LA (504) 534-9289

VENICE MARINA INC 237 SPORTS MARINA, VENICE, LA (504) 534-9357

Thunder Horse is located at or about 28°11.452’ N. Latitude ~ 88° 29.735’W. Longitude. It is in south west corner of Leased Block 778 of the Mississippi Canyon Area.

I am sure what you mean by the Hoover ~ Diana platforms, but the Hoover Diana fields are located in the Gulf of Mexico, 160 miles (258km) south of Galveston. Diana covers several lease blocks, but is largely contained within East Breaks (EB) blocks 945 and 989 (also covering EB 946 and EB 988). Hoover is located in the Alaminos Canyon blocks 25 and 26.

It would be very difficult to travel from Venice La to this area.

Although you did not specifically ask for these platforms, I thought that you may be interested in some of the platforms in the Venice general area.

BULL WINKLE

Shell Platform GC-65 A “BULLWINKLE, ” is located in Green Canyon Leased Block 65 and is at or about 27° 53.068’ N. Latitude ~ 90° 54.155’ W. Longitude. That puts it about 114 Miles at a bearing of 232° magnetic from the entrance of the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River.

~~~~~~~~~

BRUTUS

Although you did not specifically ask for it, the Shell platform BRUTUS

Is located in GREEN CANYON Block # 158 and is at or about 27° 47.742’ N. Latitude ~ 90° 38.824’ W. Longitude

~~~~~~~~

And, in the same general area

GENESIS

Genesis Spar is located in Green Canyon Leased Block 205 and is at or about 27° 46.761’ N. Latitude ~ 90° 31.093’ W. Longitude

~~~~~~~~~~

MARS

~ ”Mars” (Shell-MC-807-A) Located in Leased Block 807 in the Mississippi Canyon, I believe is at or about 28°10.171’ N. lat ~ 89° 13.373’ W. long, it is in over 2800 feet of water. It is about 52 miles from SW pass @ 166° magnetic AND about 57.16 miles at a bearing of 186° Magnetic from Lands End at South Pass. Mars is about 45.5 miles EAST of Thunder Horse at a bearing of 269° (mag).

~~~~~~~~~

THUNDER HORSE

Thunder Horse is located at or about 28°11.452’ N. Latitude ~ 88° 29.735’W. Longitude. It is in south west corner of Leased Block 778 of the Mississippi Canyon Area.

~~~~~~~~~

URSA

~ Ursa is at or about 28° 09.242’ N. Latitude ~ 89° 06.213’ W. Longitude. It is located in Leased block 810 of the Mississippi Canyon Area, about 7.4 miles east of the MARS platform.

Looking North and North west from these two platforms you should find MEDUSA.

MEDUSA

The Murphy Exploration Company’s Medusa Spar platform is in the northern part of Leased Block 582 of the Miss. Canyon. It is ABOUT 34.7 MILES at a bearing of 182° Magnetic from the South West Pass channel GONG Buoy Green # 1. It is about 21.4 miles at a bearing of 318° (mag) from the Mars Platform and about 35 miles at a bearing of 182° (Mag) from the entrance to SOUTHWEST PASS of the Mississippi River.

The MEDUSA platform is at or abouthe MEDUSA platform is at or about 28°23.559’ N. Latitude ~ 89°27.210’ W. Longitude

The only other major platform north of the Mars platform is LENA.

LENA

Lena located in Block 280 of the Mississippi Canyon area. The LEAN platform is at or about 28° 39.775’ N. Latitude ~ 89°09.467’ W. Longitude. It is about 34 miles NNE (07° Mag) from the Mars platform.

Unless otherwise specified, all positions are stated as H,DDD,MM.mmm and were determined using WGS 84 DATUM; All Headings/bearings/courses are in Magnetic Degrees and STATUTE miles.

Day two of the 2015 Houma Oilmans had the winds kicked up as usual!! With ten boats running we all headed out in hopes to repeat the previous day's smackdown. Unfortunately our first stop didn't produce. We made a short move and found shrimp jumping out the water with the specks in hot pursuit. Double rigged Matrix Shad went to work and the K2 started to look good. With a good mess in the....  Read More
