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

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

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

  • 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

  • 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

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
Taking the family down to Grand Isle for Easter weekend and would love to put them on some good fish. This is only the second time I have been here (first not very good) any tips and help will be greatly appreciated. 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

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
I know we have not posted in a while. Captain Jack has been quite busy with the termite business spraying for those yucky buck moth caterpillars. We’ve gotten reports from fellow fishermen and charter captains. The fishing is getting better and so is the weather. There are trout that can be caught on the outer edges of Delacroix, such as Lake Camp and Bay Lafourche. Also, they have been.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
Hi - I've been fishing regularly since November 2013 in spots within an hour of New Orleans - with zero success (except for one undersized catfish...)

I Don't have a boat and have been fishing from banks or piers - I've gone mostly to Mentuer Pass just off the tiny bridge after passing the Venetian Isles, or off a Bridge heading in the Irish bayou direction. I'm not sure what I'm.... 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!

Hog Hunting in Louisiana
I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has.... Read More

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Capt. Paul,
I am in the waiting process of my new bay boat. I have the new Lowrance HDS9 Gen2 touch being installed. I am thinking of adding the Standard Mapping map to it for a true life look. I was wondering if your fishing edge will work with both the Lowrance and the Standard mapping maps? Also will I need anything else to install them on my unit?
