  • Oyster Stock Assessments
Oyster dredging was legalized in Big Lake in 2005 while CCA was too busy in bed with the LWF Commission working to get the restrictive speck limits passed. Here's a graph showing the LDWF Oyster Stock Assessments on the east side of Calcasieu Lake from 2004-2013. Note the near total destruction.

Oyster issues on the E side of the state are more complex with freshwater diversions and the.... Read More

Freshwater Fishing in South Central Louisiana
My little boy won't stop talking about me taking him to the Spillway to go fishing and see an alligator. I see the water is on the rise, but will the Verret area or Pat's Bay be affective much by this recent rise? I just need a couple of bream or catfish and an alligator. He wants to pull the gator in really slowly and tape his mouth shut. HA!

I hear that the reds are hanging out around the rocks, would this be the rocks at the west end of Fifi Island? Also would love to put my 8 year old on some good specks. Any.... Read More

  • Double hook ups this morning
  • Good ones for John
Tommy & John Daigle, and Chuck Ziegler fished with me today. We were presented with perfect calm conditions. We found clean water every where we fished and had a good incoming tide. Our first stop found a decent bite with all good fish. We made a couple moves drawing blanks, so we returned to the area finding a quick bite as soon as we pulled up. The rest of the day was a stick and move.... Read More

  • Andy with a big Bronze Back
  • Greg with a nice trout
Jared Serigne, Greg Hackney, and Andy Crawford joined me today onboard the big Bluewave. We had a monkey wrench thrown at us with this West wind today, being we have been having a consistent South/E/SE wind for quite a while. No problem as all we did was adapt and overcome. We moved and found protected clean water and started pounding away at the trout. They were stacked and hungry, and we.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I have had good sucess fishing the tides but was wondering if anyone had a technique or suggestion on fishing a flat tide. I have been considering a chum set up for such occasion but not sure if that will work quite like I think. I am new to the salt game but feel like I have fared well in my learning curve for specs and reds almost anywhere I have fished. Any help would be greatly appreciated,.... Read More

  • Young angler with a bull red caught on Rutherford Beach.
How to catch bull reds on the beaches (surf fishing)

Bull reds can be caught from Louisiana beaches at any time during the year. The keys are putting the right bait in the right spot on appropriate gear to land the fish. Bull reds are primarily bottom feeders, and they are more strongly dependent on scent than on vision, especially in Louisiana waters which tend to be more turbid and.... Read More

Bass Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
I am looking for a waterfront camp to rent for an entire month next year, from approximately mid-February to mid-March, 2015. Looking for something from Cypress Bend area or further south. Want something with boathouse or dock to tie boat up to. Doesn't need to be fancy. One or two bedrooms would be fine. Would consider camp as far north as Lanan area if nice and price is right. Biggest.... Read More

  • The Good Catch
  • Her Frist Red
I had the pleasure of fishing with some returning customers from Cabelas in Gonzales and their 9 year old daughter. We had 2 boats out this day. Our day started out cold, wet, and windy, about 25 to 30 windy. The rain let up after a few hours and it warmed up a little thought out the day. We even got a little sun later in the day, but the wind never stopped. We still had a great day putting 14.... Read More
