Had a great trip today, with four fishermen who do not eat fish. Only Jarret had fished much before but all were quick studies and after a couple warm up rounds, it was off to the races! We started off at a wellhead in Breton that has been producing lots of limits lately and picked away but they never did really go. Hit rig #2 started pulling in some better fish right off the bat on a cork....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
I was wondering if anyone knows whats working at MRGO dam and surrounding area. Of course i will bring the usual arsenal of popping corks, carolina rigs, jig heads, dudleys, matrix shad, saltwater assassins, DOA shrimp, and some live bait hopefully. But is there any specific presentation or color that seems to be working best? thanks in advance

Fishing in Henderson Lake in South Central Louisiana
Henderson lake has dropped 1.5 feet in the past 4 days. The lake was dropping an inch a day. Anyone know why they are dropping the level so fast? At this rate the launch under the interstate will be basically unusable by the weekend.

Opinions & Responses in Southeast Louisiana
Well, if any of you were heading out yesterday morning and saw someone in a yellow CC trolling along in Bayou LaLoutre, that was me...In case you were wondering 'why is this fool trolling here? there ain't no fish here!' let me clear the air

I was about 3 miles from the launch, and my 225 oceanrunner redlined, and we coasted to a stop. After realizing that I was screwed, I dropped the....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Myrtle Grove / Port Sulphur in Southeast Louisiana
Good Afternoon. I am in the Coast Guard and got stationed down here last month. I am excited by everything I read about the fishing in this area. I have read probably 50 articles on catching redfish and speckled trout. I am trying to put my 2 boys (7 and 13) on some fish. I have looked at charters and they are all out of my price range by a pretty good ways. Uncle Sam just doesn't pay enough....  Read More

Readers, our Chalmette Refining Petition is now at 960 names. I certainly had hoped we'd be well over 2,000 by now. However, when we reach about 1,050, I think we'll call it quits and publish the petition. I'd like about 50 above 1,000 as some did not fill in their address and I'll have to e-mail them to please send in their address.

SO, PLEASE continue to talk up the petition so....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Morgan City in South Central Louisiana
When did it become ok to run right pass a floating camp? I have boats constantly run 25 feet from my camp wide open in Bayou Black. My kids are trying to fish perch while I'm working. Boat after boat pass like its nothing. Very disappointing.

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
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.

TIGHT LINES!

Fishing in South Central Louisiana
Would anyone happen to know what organization/group had a bunch of bass boats launching out of Myette Point on Aug 13 at around 4pm?

Reason I'm asking, one of the boats (possibly associated with that group) buzzed by my father and mother in law (who are in their late 60's)so fast that they were both knocked over and fell inside their boat. They were preparing to pack it up and move....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Man, it seems like months since we have had a few days of east winds to push some salt into the lake.

I hope the hydrology expert from a TP article is correct in her assessment of the closing of the MRGO as not having any impact on salinity in Lake Pontchartrain.

Salinity is 17.5ppt at the Rigolets today which is really great. Hope it makes it to the west side of the lake. ....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Louisiana
I and several other long time friends are fishing in north Mississippi on a private lake this weekend. We have a gentlemen's bet (and many cash side bets) who will catch the biggest and most bass. I am a perch jerking and salt water guy and no nothing about bass fishing.

Rules: I can only use one bait/lure all weekend and it cannot be live.

If you were in my shoes, what bait....  Read More

I've caught my fair share of small trout this year but today was a good one other than the wind and heat.
