Arrived at the Rigolets Marina around 545am to find no live bait and a full parking lot. Headed to the trestles and the fish werent biting.Got a call that the marina had a few live shrimp arriving so headed back in to get some. This was my sons first trip with us and I could tell he was getting bored not catching, wanted to make it fun for him so decided to head to a little hole where I had.... Read More
I was fishing with clients on Saturday when the inevitable happened. I was barely idling in the MRGO making an adjustment for my clients, when Bam! I hit a pipe and stalled out my motor. I didnít hit it hard and thought Iíd be okay, but when I put the boat back in gear, it was obvious I tore up my lower unit. I called Captain Frank and Captain Markham to pick up my guys and continue fishing..... Read More
I read The Tri Parish Times, The Gazette, and The Comet on line. All in my opinion are great newspapers. In the jeer section of Saturdays on line edition of the comet. I felt legitimate questions were raised along, with several inaccuracies.
I would like at this time to answer those questions and correct the mistakes.

A few days ago I was motoring across Breton Sound and came across a horrible sight... Thousands of big mature redfish flying dead on the surface. They went on for miles and miles. I know anyone out there recently can confirm this. I took pictures and video. The fish were stacked up in a rip line with 'pogie foam'. That nasty brown foam that is a byproduct of pogie ships harvesting. The.... Read More
Launched out of Hopedale Sunday with my sister Kelly. Late night graduation activities, no sunrise start. The SE winds were 10-15 mph, a tad bit high, so we skipped the original destinations (Two Trees, Machias, etc), and went Plan B, the lagoons off Loutre.
It worked out reasonably well. We got a mixed box of reds, 1 large sheephead, and a few trout. Also had some throwback reds, trout,.... Read More
My gf's son, Cody, came down from Missouri Saturday to spend the summer with his mother. Sunday, we packed up the boat and headed to Leeville. Got down there about 8 a.m., launched out of Boudreaux's and headed to the Cut Through Canal on the SE side of Little Lake. Worked out great. Right after Cody fought a little Stingray, the Baitfeeder reel started singing. After a little run, the hook.... Read More

Its getting to be that time of the year again to start building you box stands. I have blueprints for 4x6 box stands if anyone wants them. They are hand drawn but can help you figure out how to build them. If you want them, email me and I can send you a PDF file to print.,
The stand in the picture is a 4x4 that I can move around by myself. It has 10' legs and weighs about 300 lbs. I bring it.... Read More
Spawning trout starting to move in. We made a couple of trips this past week. Didn't catch any limits,but had a nice mess of fish each day. Almost every fish was female. Caught all on plastic (chartreuse sparkle cocohoe). We actually lost twice as much. Fish are soft biting. Good luck to all.
We have a couple of open slots in our deer lease in St. Helena Parish. 800 acres that borders the Amite River. Camp with electricity, camp stands, and food plots. We usually keep 12-14 members and are kid friendly. It's not the home of Boone and Crockett trophy bucks, but there are plenty of deer and the lease is on a 6pt or better rule.

Wanted to get out on the water pretty early so my Uncle could get some sunrise pictures so with all the boats running to the north shore, we decided to launch at delagos in Irish Bayou. Got out on the water and started jiggin a green hornet on the east side on the south shore. Wasn't doing much all morning so when the tide slacked I thought I would make a move and stick a couple. Started putting.... Read More
Go to the island around 2 this morning to fish some lights and the tide was dead so so was the bite. Also on my third cast of the morning I went to move down and slipped on some rocks and my hand ended up getting shredded by some oyster shells and barnacles so I wrapped it up in a rag and finally got the bleeding to stop. We went and slept in the truck through that rain and then headed to.... Read More
I'm going fishing Saturday morning and can't decide where to try. I want to learn Delacroix, but I am wondering if this is an area I need to go with someone who is familiar before I go on my own. Is it fairly easy to navigate? Anything I should be wary of (obstructions, shallow areas, etc.)? I will be fishing out of a 1546 xpress semi-v. My other options are Hopedale or Bayou Bienvenue. These.... Read More
