I had the pleasure of fishing with some returning customers from Cabelas in Gonzales and their 9 year old daughter. We had 2 boats out this day. Our day started out cold, wet, and windy, about 25 to 30 windy. The rain let up after a few hours and it warmed up a little thought out the day. We even got a little sun later in the day, but the wind never stopped. We still had a great day putting 14.... Read More
I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has.... Read More
Wanted to post about my trip this past Sunday, 11/3/13 to Indian Creek. I've heard a lot of talk about it being a 'dead sea'. Well, keep believing that, and I'll keep going there to catch nice bass! Weather: Blue Bird sky, temps in the low 50's(low 43,high 65), water temp:64-67°, clarity: 6-8'. With the time change, my plans got paque'd, so I was an hour late arriving, after having.... Read More
Whether it's Nevada, Texas, or the Gulf of Mexico the Police State has started! Whether it's a tortoise or a red snapper expect the unexpected. While illegal's throw stones at Border Patrol agents and those agents 'stand down', American Citizens have sniper rifles pointed at them and are stopped by sailors on a Coast Guard cutter behind a .50 cal. Make no mistake, this is not about a.... Read More
I have had good sucess fishing the tides but was wondering if anyone had a technique or suggestion on fishing a flat tide. I have been considering a chum set up for such occasion but not sure if that will work quite like I think. I am new to the salt game but feel like I have fared well in my learning curve for specs and reds almost anywhere I have fished. Any help would be greatly appreciated,.... Read More
Guys. Quick question. I would like to target some of the shallow ponds in Lafitte for red fish from now and into the summer. My question is this. Typically do you guys concentrate south of the Bayou Perot/Rigolets are can productive waters be located in and around the north central parts of Perot/Rigolets?
I have been doing really well soaking shrimp on the bottom near the jetties but.... Read More
I am looking for a waterfront camp to rent for an entire month next year, from approximately mid-February to mid-March, 2015. Looking for something from Cypress Bend area or further south. Want something with boathouse or dock to tie boat up to. Doesn't need to be fancy. One or two bedrooms would be fine. Would consider camp as far north as Lanan area if nice and price is right. Biggest.... Read More
Oyster dredging was legalized in Big Lake in 2005 while CCA was too busy in bed with the LWF Commission working to get the restrictive speck limits passed. Here's a graph showing the LDWF Oyster Stock Assessments on the east side of Calcasieu Lake from 2004-2013. Note the near total destruction.
Oyster issues on the E side of the state are more complex with freshwater diversions and the.... Read More
I just purchased the edge file for Big Lake but wasn't paying attention and accidentally purchased the one for Delorme. I have a Lowrance and am wondering if I can convert it to upload and if so I will also need the Lowrance install instructions.

Went out of Myrtle Grove this morning and struggled early to find the fish, but when we did we were in for a fun day. We caught tons of fish but our problem was the fish were to big to keep. Only went home with 6 reds because of size restrictions but it was fun.
