I am looking at making a 3 day weekend trip with my wife in the near future. She has never fished for specks/red etc, but loves fishing. This would be a 1-day trip preferably. Any suggestions on a reputable guide would be greatly appreciated. I normally fish in the Venice area, so I am clueless to who/what is around the NOLA area. Thanks for your time.
Well hit the banks again today with my buddy JLS and ended up with 55 trout caught on croakers under a popping cork. JLS couldn't believe his eyes. He was catching his own trout. No fake pictures here. But then I woke up and realizer jls was not on this trip just me and 2 buddies off my softball team. Still a good trip though

So this morning we woke up early and headed out from the rigolets the water was like glass and I went to my first spot BOOM it was on 75 specs by 8:30 and 11 white trout. Had the biggest trout of my life at the boat today due to a poor net boy he got away! Prolly about 7lbs hope to catch one like that come Monday for.... Read More
The only ammo shortage we have currently is from low life small timers that go to the stores at 500 am and wait around for the ammo to be stocked and then buy it all hoping to make a profit from some poor sap. Please all you poor saps quit buying from anyone but actual retailers and these small time morons will have to eat the ammo they have bought. Wait them out, and they will quit and go back....

Step-son's first duck on Sunday, November 11, 2012, a mature Gadwall drake. He ended day with 4 Greys and 1 Dosgris.
Follow-up Note: Gadwall mounted by Jack Piniero at Beauty of Nature Taxidermy (985) 863-3802. Excellent customer service, very reasonable prices, quick turnaround time, willing to answer questions along the way, highly recommended taxidermist!
Fished Wednesday through Sunday out of Boudreaux’s Waterfront in Leeville and with the exception of Sunday’s wind, all of the trips were in outside waters. The key to us catching this week was the tide. I like fishing Specks on an incoming tide and despite the heavy trawling in the area, water did not clean up further north until the incoming tide picked up. Places.... Read More

Im new here and fairly new to duck hunting. I was researching wood duck boxes and was wondering if anyone has tried to use them around the St. Charles Parish area? I am in a lease close to the Bonnet Carre spillway and was thinking about giving the boxes a try to increase the population around our area.
Any feedback/tips/experiences with this is appreciated!!
Great day smashing the trout today with Tom Fisher from Albuquerque. Tom was reeling in a double before I even dropped the power pole!! It was fish on almost every-cast for a good 30 minutes before any other boats pulled up. Double rigged Matrix Shad in Shrimp Creole, Lemon Head, Avocado, and Green Hornet killed the trout until other boats showed up throwing live bait. Not a problem, we.... Read More
I took my girlfriends cousins down to Grand Isle last week for a couple days and we were really blessed with some decent enough whether and a whole lot of sun! Two of the boys had never fished saltwater before so it was fun seeing them reel in the big jack and letting them experience Louisiana's beauty. The flounder are running in the marshes right now and we were able to gig 10 in about 1.5.... Read More
When fishing for red fish and trout in the bays and lakes is it better to fish the down wind side or or up wind side the lake? Any knowledge is appreciated. Try to find fish in lafitte tomorrow after work.
Well the last two days I got to do one of my favorite things in the world. Fish with my Pop, and my little brother. They were down from Shreveport staying with me for a couple days and we made a couple trips. Day one started out windy so we motored down to the rocks to see what we could get rolling. Water was dirty and bite was slow at first but managed to start putting a box together under.... Read More
A few days ago I was motoring across Breton Sound and came across a horrible sight... Thousands of big mature redfish flying dead on the surface. They went on for miles and miles. I know anyone out there recently can confirm this. I took pictures and video. The fish were stacked up in a rip line with 'pogie foam'. That nasty brown foam that is a byproduct of pogie ships harvesting. The.... Read More
