Deer Hunting in Louisiana
I FINALLY got a 35 whelen barrel for my pro hunter. It's the 28 inch stainless fluted model. I'm wondering if anyone has this same model and ammo they find is the most accurate? I'm leaning toward the 180 gr fusions, as I've had good luck with them in my 270.

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Holly Beach in Southwest Louisiana
I would suspect that the zone dates will be coming out soon. Anyone hear any unofficial dates for the coastal zone for 2015/2016?

Inshore Fishing in Bayou Bienvenue in Southeast Louisiana
Photo Album
Maybe not quite a 'bounty' but to me and my son a good haul none the less! We threw live shrimp at the rocks just outside the mouth of Bayou Bienvenue. Picture perfect day and even caught a tagged redfish. Ended up with 2 5lb sheepshead and 3 redfish 16-17'. Threw back 2 nice bass and missed 3 nice reds due to equipment malfunctions.

Took the wife and kids frogging this past weekend. Ended up with 19 frogs and around 100 lbs of catfish and that wasn't even the best part.

The best part was being outdoors with the people that mean the most to me, doing what we love to do. The table fare was a bonus.

Quick rant:
In a world that appears to be quickly dissolving into a perpetual state of grey, it is not just....  Read More

About a week ago I was pulling crab traps in Pass Christian. Inside one of them I found a small catfish not much bigger than my index finger. At first I thought he was dead but then I saw his gills pushing up and down. He was alive (barely) even after one of the crabs put a big gash in his side. I took him home and put him in a big salad bowl filled with water. I put an air pump from one of my....  Read More

  • Todd holding the huge filets. Thanks for taking me on my 2nd ever trip.
  • Did not weigh him but just at 6' long. I am 6'6' and 265 lbs.
Need some help with recipes for Garfish. Shot a big one the other night bow fishing measuring right at 6'. The filets from that fish looked like backs traps from an elk. Let me know how you like to cook it. Fried? Grilled? Garfish balls? Garfish Tacos? Any ideas will help, this will be my first time cooking some. Thanks!

Hunting in Central Louisiana
I've never hunted Doves, and haven't really hunted much of anything in the last 10 years. I noticed last year there is a public field on a WMA near me.

Is it legal to use those plastic dove decoys on a public field like this? Is there any type of unspoken hunter etiquette I should know about when hunting on a field like that?

I am disabled and I drove out and looked at the....  Read More

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Louisiana

Old Lowrance files to new format
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Empty Shell ~

Just copying the files may work, but the older Lowrance units required a Lowrance data file designated with a .USR suffix. Newer units, such as most of the Elite and HDS units, now require a data file with a .GPX suffix. The protocol for the two files is different.

Try copying the .usr data files to the new microSD card to see if it will work.

If not you will have to download a conversion program that is a free download from the internet called GPSBABEL. It is available at www.gpsbabel.org/ Using this program, you select the input as the Lowrance.usr file and output as a Lowrance .gpx file.

Once on the Micro SD disk you would transfer the data files from the memory card using the GPS MENU. See your ownerís manual Pages 7 and 14. Basically you transfer the card data files into the internal memory of the unit. All of the waypoints will then show as overlays on whatever mapping program you are using.

If you have any difficulties, contact be at 985-847-0536 or via email at

After a well needed day off with my family, it was back to business this morning. Richard Miller and Kristy Nichols were back with me today with family. We got right on the trout at our first two stops on double rigged Matrix Shad. I'm not a big fan at all of live bait as everyone knows, but this morning I had a gut feeling it may help us out (insurance). I decided to pick up some live....  Read More

Went out on Saturday 8/1. Started at Bayou Lacombe with a high tide and strong north winds. Turkey necks in the nets yielded no results. Moved over to Madisonville at the mouth of the Tchefuncte River, three crabs was all we got. Our only consolation was that no one else was catching any.

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Today was absolutely beautiful down here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. The water is looking great and there was no wind. That meant lots of beautiful Speckled Trout were caught in Black Bay. Some of the biggest Trout we've seen since early Spring and last fall were brought in. A lot of 11 1/2 inch Speckled Trout are being caught on the inside, but right on the edges. This means....  Read More

Lots of hot August weather hasnít slowed the catching. These last few days have been the best fishing of the year. Most limits of speckled trout are coming very early in the day up and down the ship channel on both sides. The fish are congregated on the drop offs. Live shrimp is the number one bait but live pogy is bringing in the bigger trout. Light north winds....  Read More

Mother in law went crabbing yesterday on Elmer's Isle from 9-4 and caught 6 crabs all day.
I went this morning from 6-noon and got 9 doz mixed. Almost all were caught between day break and 8am.
A lot of people fishing on the surf, kayak and from their boat and did not see one person land a keeper all day.
Just a FYI...

Geoff Howell and crew came down to get in on the great trout bite. We left out of the Reel Inn and I pointed the Bluewave south. A very calm morning was just what the doctor ordered. I decided to stop at the Tracy Macie for some croakers as insurance. Turned out to be a wasted stop since all but around 10 fish were caught on Matrix Shad. Even fished them side by side and the trout were killing....  Read More

I plan on taking my girlfriend and my 12 year old step daughter fishing tomorrow. We live in baton rouge and I was thinking of taking them to the Fouchon/ Grand Isle area. Im not familiar with the area as I am from southwest Louisiana (Lafayette/lake Charles). We don't have a boat and would be looking for a few decent spots to fish from land.

Are there any decent places in Golden....  Read More
