UPDATE:

*Several of our farmers are starting to see Teal over the last few days. So it looks like we should be back to a normal Teal Season! I've been on the water chasing Redfish, and have even seen a few flocks buzzing around Lake Charles and Prien Lake.*

Louisiana Outfitters has just a few openings for Teal season, which runs September 13th -....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I have had camps and fished at Cocodrie for 35 years and this is the worst year for trout since 1975

Even the Guide boats have been having to depend on Redfish due to lack of trout

WHY???

Oil spill. NO.

Over fished YES

Too much pressure on the Trout as I think they have been virtually over fished

Hundreds more fishermen plus guide boats going out daily equals way....  Read More

Hunting in Louisiana
Hello fellow sportsmen,

Does anyone have any feedback from hunting Doves at WMA's, and who has had any luck. I have hunted the Point-Aux-Chenes WMA in the past, but the fields are closed more often than not (due to waterfowl season and wetlands in close proximity). It has always been hit or miss for me.

I'm looking into trying out some other WMA's or even booking a guided hunt....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
is the gulp shrimp really worth the money? I know a lot of captains and weekend warriors both are switching to it for specks and reds because live bait is 'to expensive' but 10 gulp shrimp is 20$. and are they better then the vudu shrimp. last year I had the best trip ive ever had thanks to the vudu shrimp but again their on average 7$ for 2....

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Louisiana
A few year back I developed a creeping eruption as it is called in medical books, better known as 'Nuria Itch'. Iíve had it 10+ times over the years and it always had to run its 8-14 course which starts on your leg and stops at the neck unless it has enough life to keep going back down again. This time was special though. I sat on a rope that had just been pulled out of the mud and it started....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in The Rigolets / Lake Catherine in Southeast Louisiana
Anyone ever fish there? Lots of man made jetties to protect the marsh. I remember reading an article about Capt Vandenborre tearing up trout there on a west wind, but other than that one article no one seems to know anything about it. Anybody got any info on that area?

Anyways, my trip to MRGO got ruined yesterday when i got called in to work so i may try that out. if that doesnt work i....  Read More

After a great fun filled week long vacation with the family to the popular Emerald Coast it was back to work today. David Muir from Houston was back down to the 'Lakehouse' for another great fishing trip. Capt Brady Giroir and I handled the crew as both boats limited out by 9:00. It was a good thing as the weather was closing in fast and we made it back to the dock before the storms moved in.....  Read More

I guess we're in for a long weekend of getting soaked, but the fish are biting and thankfully someone invented rain gear! Today I helped out Capt. Marty with the 'Dat Sauce' crew from Morgan City. The reds cooperated and right off the bat we slammed one in the box. The incoming tide was ripping and the bite was just too slow. We made a move to another hole and sent the crabs to the bottom.....  Read More

Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I'm getting ready to build a pond on some land I just purchased. It already has a small pond (1/4) acre but I want to make it 1-1.5 acres in size. Does anyone have recommendations of someone on the northshore that digs ponds?

It is that time of year again! Time for the Paw-Paw's Pirogues Family to get after the Gators. Looks like a rainy weekend but we are planning to give it a shot anyway. We will also be looking to see how many teal are in the area. Here are a few pics from a couple years ago. We like to run some the lines from our Pirogues. Makes the experience a little more personal.

  • Pop showing his sons how its done
  • Fine mess of marsh critters before the rain hit.
  • Had to hop out on the grass to net this one out of a back pond we cast into.
Had a great day on the water today despite the spotty weather. Had a crew split three and three between two boats, myself and Captain Jacques of http://www.jakamosouth.com/. We pretty much knew we had a 1/2 day to get it done with the weather rolling in and decided on plan redfish. We went to two different spots and got on a good bite early. My crew was fishing some little tiny ponds off a....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Rain and wind prevented us from filming Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday we caught a break in the morning so I ran to the Power Lines on the East Canal. Squid Row fishes that neck of the woods and the last time he was down he showed me a short cut. I returned the favor by helping him clean their 80+ White Trout. He told me that if ever the weather is rough, he can....  Read More

Team 'Dat Sauce' was onboard with me today!! Johnny Lancon, Shannon Bruni, Jerry Cook, and Garrett Cook. Reds were on the menu and man did this crew bust them up!! Cracked crab Carolina rigged in a 20 ft hole had the reds coming into the Bluewave every cast. The new line up of Shimano Rod/reels worked over the reds perfectly. Good times with a fantastic crew. Looking forward to their return....  Read More

I just got my boat back from the shop and had to do a break in period for the motor. So I decided to stay close and fish lake Boudreaux with a few buddies. We launched at noon and it took 30 min to get to the first spot because we had to idle or just above idle the whole way. Only one red at the first location. So we made a move and got a few more then nothing. I decided to run the boat a little....  Read More

The bite was extremely slow all day with only about 25 bull reds registered out of over 700 angers on the water. Tide movement was little to none up until maybe 10:30 but a few reds were registered almost immediately. Team Marshyakkin waited all day but that winning bite never presented itself. With 30 minutes left in the tournament Kade Stuart caught about a 25 pound Black drum and this is....  Read More
