Inshore Fishing in Lake Borgne / Chef Menteur

Made a trip on Tuesday morning to lake borgne. I checked the weather and new the wind would be a problem but it's my last day home so off we go. As we stuck our nose into the lake we were greeted with two foot seas (like expected) but we kept pushing onto our spot. We arrived before daylight and I started working a live shrimp off the bottom and it got nailed. I missed the fish but was pretty....  Read More

Readers, our Chalmette Refining Petition is now at 960 names. I certainly had hoped we'd be well over 2,000 by now. However, when we reach about 1,050, I think we'll call it quits and publish the petition. I'd like about 50 above 1,000 as some did not fill in their address and I'll have to e-mail them to please send in their address.

SO, PLEASE continue to talk up the petition so....  Read More

Had a great trip today, with four fishermen who do not eat fish. Only Jarret had fished much before but all were quick studies and after a couple warm up rounds, it was off to the races! We started off at a wellhead in Breton that has been producing lots of limits lately and picked away but they never did really go. Hit rig #2 started pulling in some better fish right off the bat on a cork....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Morgan City in South Central Louisiana
When did it become ok to run right pass a floating camp? I have boats constantly run 25 feet from my camp wide open in Bayou Black. My kids are trying to fish perch while I'm working. Boat after boat pass like its nothing. Very disappointing.

What is the best way to get to racoon island south of Bayou Dularge? I have a 17' Xpress with a 70hp, and have never been in that area in my life. Would you recommend that trip in the boat i have?

The weather has been hot and the fishing is on fire!!! We are seeing large schools of redfish in the shallows north of Cocodrie. Just wait for a calm day and find clear water. The schools are so big that you can see them from 500 yards away.

Tie on a 1/2oz gold johnson silver minnow spoon and tip it with a piece of shrimp..just kidding.

I use a small pink or chartreuse curly tail to add a....  Read More

Took a quick AM trip out to the south end of hwy 11 bridge in Lake Pontchartrain and caught a few puppy drum. The bite was slow and the tide was rolling in. I used dead shrimp on the bottom.

Day 2 with my Sparrows crew was another success. Adam Wood, Blake Chiasson, Edward Olivier, and Jack Guidry had another incredible trip today loading the boat. Cracked crab on 1 oz Carolina rigs, fished in a 15 foot hole. (Check yesterday's report for coordinates and move 200 yards North). Bent Shimano rod and reels held in right hand did the trick!! No bananas were onboard today. Awesome....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Myrtle Grove / Port Sulphur in Southeast Louisiana
Good Afternoon. I am in the Coast Guard and got stationed down here last month. I am excited by everything I read about the fishing in this area. I have read probably 50 articles on catching redfish and speckled trout. I am trying to put my 2 boys (7 and 13) on some fish. I have looked at charters and they are all out of my price range by a pretty good ways. Uncle Sam just doesn't pay enough....  Read More

I was told that apple snails were a problem because they had no natural predators. the frogs I have been catching are full of apple snails. I have included some pics. On hard ground apple snail shells can be seen by the hundreds. they are all empty with no marks to the shell. So I guess they regurgitate the shell?

Man, it seems like months since we have had a few days of east winds to push some salt into the lake.

I hope the hydrology expert from a TP article is correct in her assessment of the closing of the MRGO as not having any impact on salinity in Lake Pontchartrain.

Salinity is 17.5ppt at the Rigolets today which is really great. Hope it makes it to the west side of the lake. ....  Read More

Working shallow marsh grass areas with popping corks and Vudu Shrimp lures is a deadly combination for all size red drum, including some monster fish pushing 30 pounds. Anglers Mike Hayes, Eric & Bob McNally team with guide Darien Ladner of Shore Thing Charters to collect some hefty fish.

Few fish fight harder than jack crevalle, and when hooked on tackle intended for use with seatrout or slot redfish, well, things get a little wild, as angler Eric McNally and guide Darien Ladner of Shore Thing Charters learn
