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

  • 4lbs 7oz
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.

  • Slim Jimmy pictured with 1/16oz and 1/32oz jig.
The best way to rig the Slim Jimmy for catching big bream and sacalait is on a 1/32oz or 1/16oz jig head. This rig gives the Slim Jimmy its most action. Typically we rig on a jig head with a crimp weight 6-8 inches above our jig for the lure to get down in the brush pile quicker. This also adds a little different action to the bait. Go to www.cajunlures.com or visit Railside in Broussard, LA to....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana

Lately we have been catching nice sacalait in 15-20ft of water on brush piles that we have created. Brush piles are a great way to catch big reservoir sacalait. We typically rig the Cajun Lures Slim Jimmy on a 1/32oz jig head with a 1/16oz crimp weight about 6-8 inches above the jig. We fish vertically over the brush piles while sometimes have to work the bait very subtle to get the....  Read More

Bass Fishing in Louisiana

Looking to catch some big bass? We have got the right bait for you! A great way to catch bass when the water heats up is to punch and flip matted vegetation. A great lure for this technique is our PooDoo Craw. You can rig this lure, with a heavy punch weight, punch skirt, light weight, or jig trailer. Lately we have been punching heavy hydrilla beds with the craw on Toledo Bend lake having great....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Bayou Bienvenue in Southeast Louisiana

Last season while hunting I jumped a beautiful full piebald deer. She (I believe doe) stopped but from the diaphragm forward was in a thicket so I passed on the shot. Never seen her anymore all season but neighbors did and every year a few actually get killed within a mile or so from us. I typically don't pull the trigger much and when this deer came out I didn't have an inclining so shoot....  Read More

Rodney Guin, Shane Sims, John Stafford, and Bob Brotherton were on the Bluewave today. Our morning started off slowly just picking away. After moving around checking a few locations, we hit the mother load of big trout. Two at a time, every-cast on our double rigged Matrix Shad. Incredible action with trout coming in up to 22 inches. The guys had a blast reeling in all the fish. The....  Read More
