Inshore Fishing in Vermilion Bay in South Central Louisiana

Be and my nephew Cullen managed to catch 7 today. 2 caught with frozen shrimp on the bottom and 5 caught with Johnsons gold spoon and gold spinner attached to white and red split tail grub. Never really turned on. It is a blast thought when they hit the artificial.

Geoff Howell and crew came down to get in on the great trout bite. We left out of the Reel Inn and I pointed the Bluewave south. A very calm morning was just what the doctor ordered. I decided to stop at the Tracy Macie for some croakers as insurance. Turned out to be a wasted stop since all but around 10 fish were caught on Matrix Shad. Even fished them side by side and the trout were killing....  Read More

Hunting in Central Louisiana
I've never hunted Doves, and haven't really hunted much of anything in the last 10 years. I noticed last year there is a public field on a WMA near me.

Is it legal to use those plastic dove decoys on a public field like this? Is there any type of unspoken hunter etiquette I should know about when hunting on a field like that?

I am disabled and I drove out and looked at the....  Read More

Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
I plan on taking my girlfriend and my 12 year old step daughter fishing tomorrow. We live in baton rouge and I was thinking of taking them to the Fouchon/ Grand Isle area. Im not familiar with the area as I am from southwest Louisiana (Lafayette/lake Charles). We don't have a boat and would be looking for a few decent spots to fish from land.

Are there any decent places in Golden....  Read More

  • Todd holding the huge filets. Thanks for taking me on my 2nd ever trip.
  • Did not weigh him but just at 6' long. I am 6'6' and 265 lbs.
Need some help with recipes for Garfish. Shot a big one the other night bow fishing measuring right at 6'. The filets from that fish looked like backs traps from an elk. Let me know how you like to cook it. Fried? Grilled? Garfish balls? Garfish Tacos? Any ideas will help, this will be my first time cooking some. Thanks!

Checked the weather, 5-10 winds and 1-2ft. Perfect Saturday so off we go to Breton Marina from Denham. Weatherman a bit off as usual. Wind had the water churned up and dirty in the MRGO. Hardheads chomping my shrimp so we moved down the long rocks to the break. Found the specs at the end of the rocks where the wind and tide funneled all the bait. Caught 22 and a nice catch and release big red.....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Today was absolutely beautiful down here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. The water is looking great and there was no wind. That meant lots of beautiful Speckled Trout were caught in Black Bay. Some of the biggest Trout we've seen since early Spring and last fall were brought in. A lot of 11 1/2 inch Speckled Trout are being caught on the inside, but right on the edges. This means....  Read More

I would suspect that the zone dates will be coming out soon. Anyone hear any unofficial dates for the coastal zone for 2015/2016?

Mother in law went crabbing yesterday on Elmer's Isle from 9-4 and caught 6 crabs all day.
I went this morning from 6-noon and got 9 doz mixed. Almost all were caught between day break and 8am.
A lot of people fishing on the surf, kayak and from their boat and did not see one person land a keeper all day.
Just a FYI...

Offshore Fishing in Louisiana
Hey Guys,

I am trying to get into saltwater fly fishing for trout and reds. I am looking for thoughts on rods, reels, line, flies, and anything else I need to get started. I don't want to break the bank for everything.

I was given a reel, but have no idea if it is any good. It is a Hobbs Creek Fly Reel (HC III Reel). Don't know anything about the line on it, other than it was....  Read More

Sharks aplenty are available along America's coasts these days. Stefanie made quick work of a pair of these hard-fighting fish, which were released unharmed to fight another day.

Some people go to movies, others play video games, but really if you want entertainment just go fishing on a Saturday. I could've sat on anchor with some popcorn today and got to see what the world is made of. Good people and ignorant people. Fortunately Justin Freeman, his wife, her friend Melanie and her son didn't have anyone rain on their parade. All the damage was away from us and to....  Read More

Had a good time flipping grass, it was hot so it was a half day trip. The bass were more on the leaner side, but still full of fight. Boated only five with two over 3lbs, and one 4lbs 7oz. No bass were harmed in the making of this video, ALL BASS were released to fight another day.

Bass Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
During the week it's easy for me to launch the boat and make a short run from Laurel Ridge launch down to Petit Amite, the locks, diversion, or blind river to do some bass fishing. I may catch a small one here or there beating the banks with plastics.

Does anyone have some advice on techniques that work well that I should be doing to catch some more fish. Or certain areas, structure, or....  Read More

New to the forum. I'm interested in hunting on Joyce WMA. Anyone know if there are pigs deep inside the WMA. I don't have a problem accessing remote areas.
