Freshwater Fishing in South Central Louisiana
My little boy won't stop talking about me taking him to the Spillway to go fishing and see an alligator. I see the water is on the rise, but will the Verret area or Pat's Bay be affective much by this recent rise? I just need a couple of bream or catfish and an alligator. He wants to pull the gator in really slowly and tape his mouth shut. HA!

  • Oyster Stock Assessments
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

Hog Hunting in Louisiana
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

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
Hi - I've been fishing regularly since November 2013 in spots within an hour of New Orleans - with zero success (except for one undersized catfish...)

I Don't have a boat and have been fishing from banks or piers - I've gone mostly to Mentuer Pass just off the tiny bridge after passing the Venetian Isles, or off a Bridge heading in the Irish bayou direction. I'm not sure what I'm.... Read More

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Capt. Paul,
I am in the waiting process of my new bay boat. I have the new Lowrance HDS9 Gen2 touch being installed. I am thinking of adding the Standard Mapping map to it for a true life look. I was wondering if your fishing edge will work with both the Lowrance and the Standard mapping maps? Also will I need anything else to install them on my unit?

  • Andy with a big Bronze Back
  • Greg with a nice trout
Jared Serigne, Greg Hackney, and Andy Crawford joined me today onboard the big Bluewave. We had a monkey wrench thrown at us with this West wind today, being we have been having a consistent South/E/SE wind for quite a while. No problem as all we did was adapt and overcome. We moved and found protected clean water and started pounding away at the trout. They were stacked and hungry, and we.... Read More

After rescheduling twice due to high winds Stan Johnson, sons Larry and Craig, along with good buddy Harry finally jumped on board the Blue Wave. I thought we would have a few hours before the winds would pick up but that wasn't the case. We had a hard west wind blowing right off the bat. Still no birds diving so it was all reefs, points, and coves. We had a slow start going with 12 trout and a.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
OK, Here's my question. I'm out at SS 26 rig fishing. An older gentlemen in my boat catches his biggest redfish. I know there not the best eating but he wants to keep it. I know this platform is beyond 3 miles out but under 9 nautical miles out. Am I correct in thinking that we could have kept these reds ( 1 per person of course) being the state is now claiming 10 miles out as state waters? Or.... Read More

I am looking for someone who is willing to travel I usually keep my boat at Cypremort Point but I am will to travel to another port in order for someone to work on it as long as itís not too far. If anyone has someone in.... Read More

  • Full tables back at the lodge
  • Solid fish for Bob Lake
  • Solid fish today
Bob Lake, Greg and 7yr old Jacob Rowland joined me on the big Bluewave today. It was stick and move at our first couple stops then we struck silver!! We were all reeling in some solid fish going 16-18 inches. Tight-lined Matrix Shad Tiger and Shrimp Creole worked best. When the bite slowed we did some moving around looking for more fish. Once again we struck silver and had the big yellow.... Read More

  • Actin' a fool
  • A FINE specimen!
  • Haul of delicious gulf filets.
Talk about a GREAT day on the water a couple days ago. Went out with a crew from New Orleans on a charity harvest trip. About once a month we try to get enough fish to hand out 200 free poboys on the streets on New Orleans. This trip was almost enough for an entire giveaway in one haul! Got the guys loaded up and headed straight out into the Sound. Forecast was for 5-10 and 1-2' waves. Ended up.... Read More

  • South Farm crawfish cart
My son doesn't have his drivers license yet, and his buddy doesn't have a truck to haul the atv, so he came up with this set-up to crawfish south farm with tomorrow. Figured I'd share so others without atv's might be inspired to come up with their own alternative to hauling gear 500 yards to the ponds. Check out his net grabber/ paint roller. It almost works as good as my golf ball.... Read More

  • Hot spots for Bill Reds at Cameron Jetties
We've been slaying the bull reds in the Cameron Jetties this past year, boating an average of 6 or so per trip, sometimes wearing everyone out. Cracked crab on a 7/0 Gamagatsu Octopus J hook is much more effective than cut mullet. Great times. I've attached a pic of our favorite spots.

1. Good spot when it is too rough outside, about 50 yards N of green channel marker right across.... Read More
