Hunting in South Central Louisiana
I have a CVA OPTOMA 50 cal. Black Powder. I'm having trouble grouping my shots. I'm using 100 gr. of powder and 260 gram Hornady Hollow Point XP. This set up is very accurate in my Tompson Center Omega. I'm grouping about 6' at 100yds with the CVA. I may have to change bullets for the CVA. For those who have tha CVA Accura, what are the powder grams and and bullet type and weight that you....  Read More

A report from one of our customers:

'My son and I went fish in Grevenberg yesterday and everyone was struggling to catch Sacalait. Well that is everyone except for us. With your baits we were working down those Sacalait in there and some slabs too. We went through a whole pack of the Red Ice Slim Jimmys that goes to show you how many fish we caught. We ended the day with 86 Sacalait. We....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
Photo Album
The weather is beginning to cool off and the water temperature is dropping. This signals the shad to start moving around. This is a great period on Toledo Bend to fish for sacalait (crappie). Fishing brush tops in the 15-25ft range water depth are key. The sacalait are filling up on shad, minnows, and small fry. We throw the Slim Jimmy in Salt N Pepper color this time of year because of the....  Read More

Bass Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
We recently made a trip to the Atchafalaya Basin to do some bass fishing with our lures. We had great success. We caught and set hook on many fish. While most weren't the size we wanted, the catches were still plentiful. Our bites came on the PooDoo Craw in Junebug Red and Black n Bleu color. We punched lily mats using 1oz and 1 1/4oz tungsten weights with 3/0 heavy duty flipping hooks. We....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
Overall our teal season this year was better than what we usually experience in southeast Louisiana. Although none of our blinds limited out the three weekends hunted, we were able to shoot some ducks and have a good time.

The video was shot over the three weekends using two Go Proís from different angles. Still trying to see what works best. Some of the shots taken appear twice but....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
I think its time for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to completely stop allowing people to build blinds on Wildlife Management areas. The law states that you can build a blind of natural materials but they cannot be used to reserve hunting locations. When are people hunting these areas going to understand this and stop thinking they own a pond on public property because they....  Read More

Cogniflex is still a favorite item at American People First Choice Brain Relax conventions. There is little independent thinking at all. It has been a recent innovation. I, practically, should want to comprehend Cogniflex. Cogniflex is a well trodden procedure to recall Cogniflex. Let's begin by slicing through all the red tape. Hard work is truly required. It's how to develop a working memory....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Leeville / Golden Meadow in Southeast Louisiana
Fishing for advice here. I have a trip this upcoming week in Leeville. The plan is to use live cockahoes and shrimp as available, but if you could bring one or two artificial lures and jigheads, what would they be??? Thanks in advance.

Take your pick, reds or trout because the bite has been great. Today Eric Frank jumped on the Bluewave with Jade, Johnathan, and John. They hardly saltwater fish so they were all about the trout so that was the target. We got off to a great start with 25 hitting the K2 fishing a reef. We made several moves picking up trout everywhere. We even doubled back to two spots and found the trout feeding....  Read More

Scott, Joey, Brady, and Sam jumped on the Bluewave this morning. The guys wanted some drag pulling so it was cracked crab in some deep holes. The reds ran large and would've had a good chance at winning a tournament if we were in one. The action was fast and furious and we threw a lot of overs back too. The puppy drum made their appearance as an added bonus. The guys caught until we ran out of....  Read More

I am hunting in area 9 on a 100 yard wide x 150/200 yard deep piece of property. The property that I hunt backs up to 1000 acres that is leased by 2-3 hunting clubs and DMAP participants. The deer that I have on camera are all at night but there seem to be plenty of deer in the area. I tried using corn but the coons destroyed it, and I also tried some race horse oats and they tore that up as....  Read More

Good times today limiting out on Specks. My crew had the time of their lives reeling in 14-16 trout all morning long. Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad with Crappie Psychic Trout Trailers 18 inches under a cork put a hurt on them. Minimal throwbacks today, as most every fish we caught was a keeper. The trout have shown up and the bite should just keep getting better.

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Outside Louisiana
Hello guys,

I've got some old maps with some strange GPS coordinates on them. I was told some off shore fishermen are likely experts. So if anybody recognizes this format I'd appreciate any input you might have.

The coordinates are this:
597 699.5 North 2 983 197.8 East

These are supposed to be in Omaha right on the Mississippi river. But I can't find a way to....  Read More

Seems to be in a State Plane format
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Jayson 172 ~

I believe that the coordinates you listed are in a format of STATE PLANE, but I am not completely sure as I donít have a topographical map of Nebraska to be able to accurately plot the position in the state plane format. The State Plane format is a form of Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid format, but stated in feet rather than meters.

Generally, the format would look something like 15T N. 44571480.0 E. 0255270.0. This position is for the center of the MISSOURI RIVER at the I-480 bridge in Omaha. It is normally called Northering ~ Easterling in zone 15T. The numbers represent meters north of the equator and east of the east~WEST boundry zones edge.

Aside from that, I donít believe that the MISSISSIPPI RIVER passes in OMAHA. You may want to double check the figures you have and if correct, plot them in the State Plane format.

  • All smiles on my first buck with a bow.
When I got on the stand Saturday October 3, I was expecting to see deer with the cooler weather but not a shooter buck. The buck came out and started eating locus beans directly under my stand. He wasn't very wide but he made up for it in beam length and mass. He weighed in at a hefty 225.8lbs.
