My family have been lucky enough to get stationed in NO for the next few years (a welcome change after several tours overseas). We are trying to determine where to live. I am from Florida and love to fish inshore, I have a small bay boat that I plan to put to work in Louisiana. I will be working out of the Corps of Engineers Office, which is pretty much downtown.
Fun day on the water with newlyweds, Ryan and Paige Frye. This trip was part of their honeymoon and man it was a blast. The wind was pretty stiff so we stayed in Bay Eloi for most of the day. We put a great box of fish together with a total of 50 specks, 2 reds, and 2 heads.

Its a sad day in Louisiana as I write this. Beloved Lake Ponchartrain that I've grown up on and spent quite a bit of my life is dying so fast its unbelievable. My second favorite area that I've fished, crabbed and trawled for the past 30 years (Bayou Bienvenue)is dying just as fast if not faster than Lake Ponchartrain. U just can't shut water flow off to a tidal area and expect it to.... Read More
Spent a fun Saturday night in the marsh with Chris James and crew. Dirty water made the fish hard to see in our first location. Made a little move and started seeing some nice redfish, drum, sheephead and a ton of alligator garfish.
The guys hit some and missed some but it was fun and big smiles by all. A good first trip for the new dual Gator Tail rig. It is rigged and ready so please call.... Read More
Friend went beach crabbing a week ago on Elmer's and did well. Now I read crabbing is not allowed on Elmer's due to restrictions. Asked friend and they said beach had many people crabbing and wildlife and fisheries was present. Anyone know what the deal is? Can we crab on Elmer's or not?
We had a really great week catching redfish. I ran trips from Falgout Canal in Dularge and Sharky's landing by Lake Boudreaux and found the redfish stacked up in both areas. We all had 1/2 oz Johnson gold spoons tied on and that was all we needed. Mostly sight casting to tailing and fish pushing. Nice schools of up to 30 fish with their tails out of the water in a foot of water and some smaller.... Read More
My 1988 mercury 70 hp will crank and start fine, usually as soon as I turn the key. But once it cranks it will idle for 2-3 seconds and dies. Don't know what the problem is. Tried cranking with warm up lever up and it still does the same thing. Tried pumping bulb while after it cranked but still nothing. It was running fine less than a week before this started. Any info/ tips are appreciated.
Had regulars,Gary and Taco,today.Made one stop and put the limit in the box for 8am.We had a nice steady bite and nice fish.The water was nicer today than it has been.On the way in we ran into several schools of bull reds and played with them for a while.All fish were caught on a cork 3ft down on live shrimp.
Had pretty good morning fishing yesterday. Plenty of Reds and a few specks... But question is this... Being I am a sport fisher I am required to have all safety gear on board including running lights. Are commercial fishermen exempt from having required running lights??? I met up with an oyster boat yesterday morning which never slowed and was running in the dark without a light what so ever! .... Read More
Scott Deshotel with Vesco Rental and Billy Broussard were back on the Big Bluewave today. Trout is what the guys wanted and trout is what they got!! We picked away at the fish at our first couple spots. Our third stop is where we found the motherload!! The trout were Stacked and hungry for our double rigged avocado Matrix and purple Haze Vortex Shad. We had the fish coming in 3-6 at a time.... Read More
After several attempts me and a buddy FINALLY found a place with frogs. Unfortunately we need to refine our techniques but we did manage 25 of the 100 or so frogs we saw. Yea I know pretty bad average but I havent done this since I was a kid and we're still relearning.
Question tho. What's the easiest way to tell a pig from a bull? I've looked online but can't find much or a pic of.... Read More
I have a 3 bank on board charger on my boat. If I only hook up 2 batteries to it what should I do with the third set of wires? Should I just leave them unhooked or can I double up on one of the batteries? Thanks for any help.
I've been deleting Scammer adds by the 100's but they re-use the same profile to quickly re-post the same scam. is it possible to find a way to delete the profile ? anything to make it more time consuming for them to re-post.
We were catching some nice speckled trout and some huge reds this past saturday around noon and pulled up this guy, we didn't keep it only because we shocked by it and just instinctively threw it back. However, i did snap some pictures of it. Is this just a channel cat with some messed up genetics or is this a fish of different kind?
