  • Delta hog
  • Hog rooting evidence
  • Fawn on full alert
I went on my 7th scouting trip down at the Delta this morning. This time it was on Big Island and for the very first time I saw a hog there. I have killed quite a few hogs the last several years at the Delta, but all of them have been on the peripheral islands. I have seen sign for the last few years on Big Island, but no sightings until this morning.

The area I was on, had over one....  Read More

Fishing in Louisiana
Today 8 boats launched at Sweetwater they did really good on reds despite the wind from the cool front moving in. They caught a few trout also. Capt.Jack has a few charters available still this week. The trout he caught yesterday was unreal but they were only 11 inches so in the next few weeks they will be 12 inches so if your looking to book now is the time. We have lodging available also and a....  Read More

Fishing in Calcasieu Lake in Southwest Louisiana
I am not usually one who would post something like this publicly , but I feel like people should know who they are dealing with.

I have a son that is autistic and we do a lot of volunteer work with the therapy center which he attends. The center is a non profit organization and we are currently getting different items together for an auction to raise money for the center.

Now I....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Central Louisiana

Just looking for some opinions, this spike came on camera right outside the area I hunt; was on a family members camera, not mine. My question is , is he a shooter or not? This is a small area that we hunt and is natural area so to speak; what I mean by that is it is not an area that is really food plotable and such, lots of hard woods etc. Just wondering if he were to walk in front of my stand....  Read More

  • My son on left and his buddy, all smiles!
Made another trip on Sunday staying close to the house. My son had a friend over on Saturday night and at 9:00 Sunday morning he wanted to go fishing, so we loaded up the boat and off we went. Him and his buddy had a blast, well and me too, caught white trout, croakers, reds, drum and one lonely speck. We made a nice meat haul.

  • Sail hook up with a storm coming.
  • Got him by the nose.
  • Quick shot before revival and release.
The surf on Friday near Pensacola went from bad to worse. When we got to the launch site the surf wasnt too bad, but the Gulf was covered with T-storms. We headed to Waffle House to wait a while and see what would happen. After about an hour we headed back. Still had some storms, but it looked like we could get out. We did.

Finding bait was a little slow, but we managed some small cigs....  Read More

Why is LDWF Leaving Money On the Table

Is it any wonder, after reviewing the facts regarding the fees Louisiana charges compared to Mississippi, why Mississippi is the leader of the two states in so many Wildlife Management Areas?

From first hand experiences, Louisiana WMAs, like the PRWMA (Pearl River Wildlife Management Area), have always struggled through low budgets, and....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
I just had a cancellation for Saturday, so I now have an opening for a group of up to 4 for a Teal hunt or a 'Cast and Blast'. Today my group decided that they would rather do a mid morning fishing trip instead of a hunt because it was dead calm and they didn't want to pass on a perfect fishing morning. We left out around 830am per their request and we were able to have non stop action....  Read More

Any feedback on how good or bad the detail is for our area on the new Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision Map?

Its a bit pricey and I don't want to commit another $300 on top of what I already spent for a new GPS. The current base maps just stink. For example, it doesn't even show the Spoil Canal next to the MRGO.

  • Gator with Squirrel in his mouth
Went fishing in the Spillway yesterday with a buddy from work. We saw a gator grab a squirrel on the bank in front of us. He swam right up to the boat like he was showing off what he caught then turned and went toward the bank so we wouldn't steal his food. Never saw anything like that before. He wouldn't allow us to get close enough to take a good picture but you can see the dark object in....  Read More
