Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
It was a quiet day in Delacroix at Sweetwater Marina. There's nothing to report on for fishing today, but we did have a few duck hunter's go out and they all had limits or close to limits. The weather is looking up for tomorrow, we have plenty of live shrimp and we would love to see you, so come on down. And if you can't make it tomorrow the weather and fishing should be great for the rest of....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Louisiana
I've been researching on Google Maps and the best launch site I can figure for this area is Eddie Pinto's Bait Shop just south of the ICW bridge on Paris Road. It looks like a paddle of a little less than two miles.

Or is there a closer spot to put in?

It looks like easy fishing when it's cold: http://www.nola.com/outdoors/index.ssf/2014/11/early_winter_drives_easy_speck.html

  • This IS the “TREE of LIFE” in HOPEDALE. Louisiana
  • This IS the “TREE of LIFE” in HOPEDALE. Louisiana
I have fished out of Hopedale, Louisiana, for many, many years. This is a SE Louisiana village of fisherman and sports anglers since its inception. What you see here in these pictures is a striking view of a lone tree in an endless field of marsh grass and water—standing out like an announcement of survival to all its viewers for endless miles around. I can’t tell you how long it has stood here.....  Read More

Hunting in South Central Louisiana
I'm curious to see what clubs are charging for guest fees. Is the fee different for big game versus small game? And if your guest hunts in the same stand as a member, does the fee still apply? Thanks

Big Buck Photo Contest in Outside Louisiana
Took this old river bottom buck opening morning of muzzleloader season. Turns out the buck did not have a tooth in his mouth but tipped the scales at 225 pounds. He scored 142'.

Big buck down I had a little history with this buck we called turkeyfoot. He got his name due to the palmetto of his G2,G3 and G4 on his left side looking like a turkey foot. I shot him last year my arrow was deflected by a small limb hitting him in his hip. Fast forward one year later back in Illinois same farm, same ridge, same stand on the first evening I see him tending a doe, grunting like....  Read More

  • stuffed to the gills
We caught some reds under the birds last week which were literally 'stuffed to the gills' with shrimp. Counted 21 shrimp and 1 croaker in the belly of a 20' red!
Redfish with shrimp étouffée on top!

Boats in Central Louisiana
So while I was coming in from duck hunting this morning the motor stopped peeing. I shut it down and paddled to shore. I ran a wire through the outlet line and intake holes on the bottom are clear. It'll spit a little bit of water but not a steady stream. Is the water pump going bad or is there anything else that would cause this to happen? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Hi,

I hunt the marshes for duck season and I fish the Atchafalaya Basin year round, and I want to start duck hunting the basin as well. Can anyone share a little advice on how to scout the basin timber areas for ducks. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

The Bluewave was back on the water this morning with our Inolect crew. First and only stop had us trolling in search of the yellowmouths. It didn't take long before we found them stacked up. Corks were flying down just as fast as trout were flying into the K2. Shrimp Creole was the ticket. The bite was very good up until number 70 and then it seemed like the trout got scared. Luckily within....  Read More
