any info you can give me on Lake Long near Bourg in Lafourche Parish? Depth of water? I have a 22' bay boat and need a few feet of water. Fishing tips and what is there to catch? Best time of year to catch? Anything will help!
I'm a newbie to kayak fishing. I'm looking for some tips on places to go around the Lafayette area. I'm mostly a freshwater fisherman. I've been to Lake Martin a few times, but that place is always crowded.
I'd like to know of some other kayak friendly places to go. I'm familiar with the Henderson area. I know people go out to Fausse Pointe in the small.... Read More
Where can I get the artificial pellets and pogies around Baton Rouge? Also when there is no current does part of the trap need to be out of the water for them to breathe? And if anyone has used 4' or 5' pillow traps please text me at 2254851109. Also where can I buy mesh sacks around Baton Rouge? And when does the crawfishing pick up in the basin? I have 40 3' pillow traps; where are some.... Read More
Thinking of heading to Cocodrie the weekend of March 15. Anybody got any tips or advice? It'll be my second kayaking trip inshore, as I'm from North La. I hate to miss a weekend of spawning bass up here, but can't stop thinking about catching a redfish from a kayak. I went this past weekend out of Cypremort in Vermillion Bay and didn't get a bite. Didn't know about the Atchafalaya being too.... Read More
Need opinions, do you fill your boat up every trip or run half full. I am thinking about running half full and only filling up as needed. This will help me flush the old gas, run lighter in the marsh and less trailer weight.
I need a blueing job on a 1960-ish 16 gauge Browning auto. We have one local gunsmith who will charge $250. Is the $250 charge the going rate? Does anyone know of a gunsmith in the southeast LA area that blues guns and for what price?

I fish mostly out of Rigolet's marina. The last few trips we have struck out completely. Is anyone catching trout in the Rigolet's? I usually fish with a DOA or Voodoo shrimp with a chunk of dead shrimp. Any suggestions? Thanks
LWDF HELICOPTER HOG HUNT WAS A FIRST. SO, THAT DID NOT HAVE A GREAT IMPACT ON HOG NUMBERS. OFCOURCE I DONT AGREE WITH WHAT LDWF DID. AS FOR THE FEDERAL WILDLIFE REFUGE'S NOT ALLOWING DOGS, IT IS NOT CORRECT. BOGUE CHITTO STARTED ALLOWING DOGS IN 1997. AND IT IS STILL GOING ON. CHECK THEIR PERMIT PAMPHLET.
KILLED OVER 150 HOGS IN THE 40 OR SO YEARS THAT I'VE BEEN HUNTING THEM. NEVER HAD TO LIVE ONE OUT IN THE WOODS BECAUSE OF SICK LOOKING OR BAD SMELL. WELL COOKED WILD HOG IS PROBABLY THE BEST MEAT I'VE EVER HAD. RABIES IS A VERY RARE DESEASE FOR HOGS AND IT IS NOT ONE OF THE DESEASES THEY ARE CARRYING. NOT SAYING THEY CAN NOT CONTACT IT, BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE READ THEY ARE NOT CARRIERS OF.... Read More
Readers: This is to give you a \'HEADS UP\' on President Obama\'s Nominee for Surgeon General. He has nominated a doctor who not only DOES NOT have the experience for this job, but, he openly OPPOSED THE 2ND AMENDMENT, even proposing TOTAL CONFISCATION of ALL GUNS in America. I encourage you to read this article on this doctor:
Anybody know where I can buy frozen pogies, beef melt or other kinds of bait that will work well for Crawfishing somewhere close to Baton Rouge or Henderson? I've seen videos on youtube of people using some kind of bait that looks like sausage for crawfish.
I was planning on running 20 pillow traps or so out of my kayak just for fun near Ramah, Henderson and maybe try Lake Verrett..... Read More
It was great having John, Jeremy, and Joshua Doucet back onboard the big Bluewave today. The trout bite got off to a good start until a rude boater motored right through the fish and shut everything down (some people just should not be allowed to own a boat). About a hour later we got on another good run before the bite quit. We made one more move and found the mother load!!! Fish after fish.... Read More
Caught a big spawner today....was dripping eggs. Let her go to have babies and grow. If you gonna keep some bass to eat, keep the 1 to 2 lbers....no sense in putting a knife into a bass like this that will be someone's biggest ever, maybe a youngster will catch her!

Went out this morning knowing I would probably get a wet butt and I did, however when the cold rain fell that's when the fish would start biting. Had to leave them biting because I was getting drowned and it kept getting harder and harder.Took what I could get but had a good time wet in the Bayou of Gauche.
