Kayak Fishing in Venice in Southeast Louisiana
5 of us spent 4 days in Venice, just going to give a report.

Thursday- Stormed all day. We managed to fish from shore first thing in the morning, but came up empty.

Friday- Fished in canal cover for most of the day, but did get out in the bay off Tide Water for a bit. It was rough fishing. The weather forecast was 15-18 mph winds, but constant gusts had us struggling to fish. We....  Read More

Big fish at the Beach. Saturday I helped out on a three boat bachelor party trip. With my hung-over crew of three we headed to the MRGO Rocks and made a good long drift with no Trout to show for. We really were just killing time till the winds died a little as forecasted so we could get out to the Sound. Once we made it to the rigs the guys put some meat in the box. Not as many Reds that day as....  Read More

I made a quick scouting trip with my nephew and Capt. Austin to look for trout on the reefs in the lake and at our first stop we hit a good pile of solid trout holding on a reef in about 2ft of water, we stayed on a steady bite for a while and then took off to look around at some different areas but the tide quit and so did our trout bite.
My nephew had never caught a Redfish before so we....  Read More

The last 2 days I had the pleasure of fishing with Mr Sam Farr, his son in law Dan, and his grandchildren Jacob and Zachary. The boys came down to fish while the girls stayed in New Orleans. They are all from Georgia and came to Louisiana to experience the fishing, outdoors, and Cajun cuisine. Day 1 was picture perfect and when we hit the water it felt like the day was made already. As the sun....  Read More

Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana

  • Food at the cleaning station
As kids many years ago anytime we had crazy weather they would said the Abomb was the problem. This week I have never seen wind blow so hard in the evening and be so calm at day light. We caught the Lafitte slam everyday but you better be casting at day light. Can't believe the trout already are full of eggs this seem real early to me. All we need now is for the dragonfly s to arrive to control....  Read More

Where are some good places to go crawfishing in Southeast Louisiana or Southwest Mississippi? Are there any crawfish farms open to the public?

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I heard about folks using square hay bales in the marsh to create new marsh areas (small islands).

Does anyone out there have any experience with this? If so, how did you pin down the bales to prevent them from floating away? How did you get the marsh grass, rozo cane or other vegetation to successfully 'grow' onto the hay bales?

Thanks,
HM

  • Getting on the early action
  • This red was so full of lice and yuck that it went over even though it was Jeremy's very first red
  • The Red Fish Gang
Jamie Miller, Billy, Jeremy and John came down to get out of the house and office and get into some of the fantastic fishing going on down in Dularge. we jumped in the Skeeter at 6:15 and off we went and it didn't take long to get the action started. Just as the sun was taking a peak out for the day the first bull was on. It started quick but faded quick also. The first stop found 3 or 4 fish....  Read More
