im taking my father on a fishing trip in September to grand isle. I was wondering if an 1860 g3 center console with a 70hp Yamaha is enough boat to run around the marshes and try and catch a few fish and if anyone has any tips on when/where/what to use. we usually just fish from the surf or elmers isle but want to use a boat this time. all advice would be greatly appreciated.
For the past several years the government are working on the Bayou Dupont area to increase land. At present time they are spending millions for 360 acers of land. To get their heavy equipment to the area they want to work they need to build a canal for several miles. Here is a picture of the spoil area that was just mud several months ago. Just think how much land we could have if they had used.... Read More
Fished Wednesday afternoon out of Boudreaux's. Could not get out into the Lake due to a strong south wind and reports at the landing of the water being dirty from the shrimp trollers sent me to the east side of Leeville. I decided to try the power lines and points. Wife used live minnows and I used the Matrix Shad, Lemon Head color. Keeper size Speckle trout were very scarce and the white trout.... Read More
I would like opinions on a good asking price for my boat. It's a 17'6 predator bass boat, with a 150 mercury black max xr4. I just put all new carpet in it, a brand new trolling motor , 3 brand new batteries, brand new livewell pump, it has a hot foot, plenty of storage, good trailer, papers on boat only, a laser 2 prop on it. This boat has great hole shot and jumps out the water. The only bad.... Read More
It was nice to come back from fishing and find the WI-FI back up at Boudreaux's, hence this report fresh off the water. Morning trip to Castette/Calumet awesome. Pulled up to the west point of Cassetete and found catfish. Saw the Pelicans diving on the western point of Calumet and found shools of Pogys, huge slicks and the area lit up with Specks and Bull....

I'm heading offshore out of dularge and planning on hitting a section of rigs in about 50-55 feet of water around 35 or so miles out because I'm limited to a small gas tank in my bay boat. Can anyone give me any information on what kinds of fish we could possibly catch in 50 feet of water around these rigs? We've caught cobia out there before but just interested if there is anything else.... Read More
Big time fun with the bronzebacks! Capt Brady Giroir was on hand to help out as Joe Montgomery,Chris Wagner,Frank Zhou,Chris Wang & Dan Ladd rolled into the “Lakehouse” for an enjoyable night on the bayou. We left the dock at daybreak and only made 2 stops to whack the reds! I fished with Frank Zhou and Chris Wang from China along with Chris Wagner. Capt Brady fished with Joe & Dan. The.... Read More
Headed out in the morning with Kayak. Have not been in a while. Thinking either off of North side of hwy 1 between Fouchon and Grand Isle or Hopedale Hwy.. Anybody been fishing and doing good at any of those?
Kevin Flannagan and family came down for a little catching and man did they do a number on the fish. They put 35 mangroves in the box and had a great time learning the tricks and then putting the fish in. Ms Norm as I called Sheila because she caught most all the fish and the cobia. It was just normal for her to have a fish on most all the time. After the mangrove s and not wanting to catch.... Read More
The weather next weekend won't keep me and my brother in law from driving the 8 hrs from Florida. We would appreciate any help on where to put in to be a little more protected. We planned on Joshuas Marina but that doesn't look like it would block too much of the wind.. so any help would be much appreciated.Coming to witness the world famous redfishing first hand.
5 days in Buras with me and some buds. All we do is kayak fish. I know there are 2 or 3 put ins in Buras , but we would appreciate any suggestions on where to go. Reds in Florida are scattered.. so this will be new to us from the crazy fishing I have seen in videos. I have read that the reds meet up in the passes in the river once it drops.. we're willing to go wherever. Any help would be great.
I was very please to see all my fellow anglers come together last night. It was standing room only at the Hyatt conference room. The Gulf coast council knew when they left how we feel about our fisheries. However I feel that the council will do what they want to do regardless of public opinion.
I was curious if anyone knows why this happens. all catches go in the same ice chest, so its not like some get hot and some don't. One of the pics is of sacalait. both fish caught same day same place. Same goes for the pic of frogs, what yall think

Small black tip shark maybe 3 feet long caught in Stump Lagoon in the Rigolets on dead shrimp bottom fishing. This on the heels of what had to be a much, much larger shark yesterday 100 yards or so yards from the HWY 90 bridge. It ran out 200 yards of 80 lb. test braided line super fast before snapping it. Can't confirm that one was a shark, but my gut intuition is leaning that way judging by.... Read More
