We announced the start of a Petition on July 9th to URGE Chalmette Refining to resume the manufacture and sale of ethanol FREE gasoline from their refinery’s truck rack in Chalmette.
Over the first week, we were having an average of 100+ signatures per day sign up. At that rate, I felt we would have well over 1,000 by now. It is now 13 days since we launched the petition and we have.... Read More

Finished up my work day on the tug boat yesterday afternoon. Right before it got dark decided to throw a few casts just passing time. I was throwing a popping cork with a matrix shad and it got rocked. The fish was pulling hard and staying down so I thought I had a decent red. The fish never shower herself until on the side of the tug and when she did panic set in. It was a Huge trout. I was.... Read More
Yesterday, we had three boats out. Capt. Jason had the pleasure of fishing with Ronnie and his son-in-law, J.T. They fished the edge of the Breton Sound catching 75 speckled trout while fishing 2' under a popping cork.
Capt. Jimmy also had an evening trip. They fished for about two hours before dark. The group(Phil, Wall, Ryan, and Nathan) enjoyed.... Read More
The rain was constant for the weekend but when we got a break the trout are biting. You have to be patient and work for them but they are there. Small fish in the bay and upfront 2,to 4 lbs fish are being caught. Live shrimp still the ticket. A lot of unwanted fish eating the shrimp too. Bring 75 shrimp per angler.!
Tired is a good word to describe what the ESI guys are feeling this evening. I helped Capt. Marty out with a 4 boat charter yesterday and today. Andy and Ronnie were with me yesterday morning throwing gold spoons in the ponds. We started off right away with reds smashing on our spoons. We put 11 in the K2 along with a few bass. One more move gave us 2 more reds and a puppy drum. We took it to.... Read More

If only going to work was this much fun! Team Hooked On Yak has come together to bring you this action packed fishing video, which includeds Brent Domingue, Shane Curole and Trevor Braun fishing the Marshes of Southeast Louisiana wearing Business Suits bought from Goodwill. The footage for the video was compiled from two trips in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana so we were fortunate that the fish.... Read More
Finally received my Trophy Speckled Hind. Second one ever caught in Louisiana. Louisiana Outdoor Writer\'s Association registered it as #2 Louisiana State Record. I am very proud of this Trophy. Next month is the Fish of the Year award voted by the LOWA. Hope my rare catch is in the running for that award!!
I've been out of town at the World Deer Expo in Alabama since Thursday. Came in last night and picked up customers this morning and picked up right where I left off. Skull dragging the trout!! We arrived this morning to an absolute slugfest from the first cast. A couple of my guys were new and needed some coaching but we worked out the kinks in short order and just completely destroyed the.... Read More
Been on the water the last 5 days. Fun trips despite all the rain and wind we have been having. Fish have not been stacked up in one area you just have to bounce around and put them together most days. I have been catching in the bays just before the outside, also in Eloi, and then some going long into Breton. Same tactics as usual, fishing corks for the first couple hours of light then most....
