This is yet another blatant display of the deep prevailing corruption that seems to be so much a part of the LDWF. The LDWF apparently are able to break the laws of the state of Louisiana, laws you and I must obey, laws that are enforced at the point of a gun with the threat of jail time. The arrogance of the LDWF’s elitist attitude demonstrates that they believe they are untouchable and are.... Read More
Today Capt. Jack fished with Dan Strang and family from Northern Illinois. They usually come in town with their own boat and come down to Sweetwater to launch and stay with us, but this trip they decided stay in the French Quarter and charter with Captain Jack. Jack picked the family up at the hotel in Quarter where at about 8:00 this morning, hitting the water at about 10:00. The group fished.... Read More
With the spawning season kick off, just wanted to remind everybody that we should try our best to conserve the bass fishery. It\'s not wise to keep stringers of spawning females every time out. I\'m guilty of sight-fishing the beds and all that, but I release all the fish I pull off of beds. Even catching a male off of a bed can do damage. Once the female lays her eggs and moves....

To great spring time days on the water. Sunday I had the pleasure of having nice couple, Mary and Roy on board the Purebay. The bite was slow but we put together enough trout for a fish fry and Miss Mary had a plats with her 8 pound redfish. Along with that was a couple smaller reds and a sheep on plastic. This was Mr Roy's second trip with me and can't wait for the next one. And he better.... Read More
Starting Friday I fished four days straight counting today. Conditions have been near perfect with the winds laying down and temperatures up. Under these circumstances the fishing was hot, but not as hot as it should have been. Friday we worked hard for 25 trout with and a red. Some folks out there did better but the bite was really spot oriented. Thanks to Capt. Marty Lacoste for setting.... Read More
I wrote a letter to LDWF and would like for some of you to help me spread it so they can realize what they are doing regarding pig control is dead wrong, here it is:
'Dear LDWF, You guys are going about this pig control all wrong. We as taxpayers have a right to go out and shoot these things and put them on our tables.I have been reading up on louisianasportsman.com and have.... 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 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
Made another one of my frequent fishing trips down to dularge this morning because I had to drop my boat off at Pellegrin Marine in Houma this afternoon to get its annual service. Headed down early this morning with 3 friends from Baton Rouge, Elliot Diel, Corey Holmes, and Logan Messina from Dallas. We launched the boat at 6am and we were off to fish the bayous and marsh on the northeast end.... Read More
Kayak fished sat am to early afternoon in Lena Lagoon, found redfish back in ponds and school trout feeding around the mouths of bayous and on flats over oysters. Most fish caught on a lil Cleo, a couple under corks on vudu shrimp.
Today went in marsh south of Breton Sound Marina and found some nice trout feeding at mouths of bayous and again over oysters in 5-6 ft of water. Lil Cleo.... Read More
