Good morning everyone, I recently started a blog about the passion, search and targeting of trophy trout, as well as writing and reflecting on the time spent growing up on the Louisiana Delta. My homewaters are Port Sulphur, but I fished all over. Now that I'm in the Air Force, I hardly make it back and if so its just to visit family, but my search for big trout continues wherever I'm....

Had pretty good morning fishing yesterday. Plenty of Reds and a few specks... But question is this... Being I am a sport fisher I am required to have all safety gear on board including running lights. Are commercial fishermen exempt from having required running lights??? I met up with an oyster boat yesterday morning which never slowed and was running in the dark without a light what so ever! .... Read More
While running a charter yesterday Matt hooked into a monster Bull Red. After 20 mins I tightened the drag a little bit. The fish ran under the boat then shot out yanking Matt right off the bow of the boat. Luckily he did not let go of rod. We got him back in, he immediately grabbed the rod and 15 mins later the monster was in the boat. This was his biggest fish ever!! Congrats Mathew on getting.... Read More
We were catching some nice speckled trout and some huge reds this past saturday around noon and pulled up this guy, we didn't keep it only because we shocked by it and just instinctively threw it back. However, i did snap some pictures of it. Is this just a channel cat with some messed up genetics or is this a fish of different kind?

Sure Iím not the only one who has ever questioned the legal possession and regulations of blue fin tuna, I also know several educated captains that have been interrogated over this misinterpretation. The question I have is there a way to purchase a tuna tag or licenses to possess a blue fin during the closed Incidental Trophy Season? Also if you were to accidently catch a blue fin and the fish.... Read More
When using Insight Planner is there a way to enter a waypoint created using NAD 27 Datum and then convert it to WGS 84 Datum? I can't seem to figure out if there is an option to do that within the program. Will I just have to enter those coordinates in my HDS 7 unit in NAD 27 and then convert them to WGS 84? Thanks for your help.
