I read an article several years ago that discussed several squirrel sub-species in Louisiana and gave the name of a very large, rare Fox squirrel that is indigenous to East Feliciana parish, as well as a taxidermist, near Clinton, that specializes in mounting these squirrels. Can anyone tell me the name of the squirrel and/or taxidermist, please? I can't remember or find information. For some.... Read More
Thinking about fishing Lacombe area in the am. Just trying to see if anybody been doing any good there or going to be out there in the am. Just started kayak fishing and haven't been b out there in yrs.
Got off to a late start this morning, over slept and had a dead cranking battery. Finally launched the boat around 8:00 am in Larose. Motored down to Golden Meadows to try the flats for reds or maybe some trout on top water. No luck, wind was ripping against the incoming tide. Went on down towards Lake Raccourci, no specks, just one ole bull red that got away. Came back to Catfish Bay and worked.... Read More
Here it is, a report from a recreational sportsman
I felt the urge to burn some fuel, so I dropped in at Bait inc., I called the levee district beforehand and they said all locks were closed so I brought the wife because I figured I wasn't going to be fishing. The water was pretty dirty down by the violet locks, so I found a spot where it wasn't so dirty half way back to the launch to.... Read More
Did anyone else have a rough day on the water yesterday? We ended up with a few bass, 4 keeper reds, and a handful of rat reds. That is a rough day for me in Delacroix... We had high high water and a chilly start. Just curious if anyone else struggled. I know a lot of people were fishing by the number of trucks were at sweet water!
OK guys. My old GE electric knife passed away after 15 years and can't find another one. Went to Wal Mart and tried the Hamilton beach and Black and Decker. Neither one lasted 15 fish. brought both back. Is there any electric knife out there that anyone can recommend? Thanks
I will be putting on a tournament this fall for HERO HUNTS. A non-profit charity that put veterans (especially disabled vets and wounded warriors) on fishing and hunting trips. I need to know your opinion on a date for this bass tournament on the red river. Thinking about September on the second weekend. First weekend of the month is dove season, but then teal season starts. So you think Teal.... Read More
Well I went out today, didn't leave Venice marina Untill 10am, we waited for the wind to die down a good bit before we shoved off! The targeted species was red snapper, lane snapper, Cobia, and whatever wanted to bite our hooks in 50feet of water! Well we ended up with a real nice limit of pretty big red snapper!! Couldn't find any lane snapper or other species given our time out there! Our.... Read More
Why is there an absence of fishing reports from regular weekend warriors? All I see is reports from guide boats. The guides are the best, we all know that & this site is great for advertising but what about us blue collar boys? If I end up with 6 or 8 fish for the day that's enough to feed my family. Come on boys lets weigh in with the big dogs & share a little info. I can only.... Read More
Hey guys. Was interested in getting into some jug fishing for catfish. Are there any rules and regulations for that? Or will a basic fresh and saltwater fishing license be fine? Also if I catch other game fish on the jugs such as redfish, drum, and etc. am I allowed to keep them? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hey guys. Looking to spread the word on a kayak I have for sale. Its a Jackson Big Rig. I have pics and details listed in the 'kayaks' section in the Classifieds. Price is negotiable. Thanks for the help
What a great day for fishing.. Let the weather stay like this Forever...Great for sight casting big reds in the shallows. They are loaded in the clear grassy ponds north of Cocodrie. 1/2 oz Johnson gold spoons on 50 lb spider wire braided line. Dropping the spoons on their noses 20 feet from the boat and watching them inhale it. Sometimes 10-15 fish in a school. Double and triple.... Read More

Chad Chaisson and crew joined me today aboard the Bluewave. Perfect conditions presented us with clean water, calm winds, and a good tide. We had high hopes of crushing the fish with no problems. Well the fish didn't get the memo!! Zero fish at our first three stops. We finally broke the ice at out fourth stop. Stick and move over and over picking away. No birds diving no bait seen,....
