Hey guys ... I just installed a lowrance hds7 gen two touch. I am very new to the side scanning abilities of these units. I was wondering if any of you guys use it to find the fish before wasting time casting to nothing. Like for example you could roll past a well head or point and if there are no fish I assume you should roll on to the next stop. Another question is this... If you do use these.... Read More
Its a sad day in Louisiana as I write this. Beloved Lake Ponchartrain that I've grown up on and spent quite a bit of my life is dying so fast its unbelievable. My second favorite area that I've fished, crabbed and trawled for the past 30 years (Bayou Bienvenue)is dying just as fast if not faster than Lake Ponchartrain. U just can't shut water flow off to a tidal area and expect it to.... Read More
Had pretty good morning fishing yesterday. Plenty of Reds and a few specks... But question is this... Being I am a sport fisher I am required to have all safety gear on board including running lights. Are commercial fishermen exempt from having required running lights??? I met up with an oyster boat yesterday morning which never slowed and was running in the dark without a light what so ever! .... Read More
My 1988 mercury 70 hp will crank and start fine, usually as soon as I turn the key. But once it cranks it will idle for 2-3 seconds and dies. Don't know what the problem is. Tried cranking with warm up lever up and it still does the same thing. Tried pumping bulb while after it cranked but still nothing. It was running fine less than a week before this started. Any info/ tips are appreciated.
This past week has been jam packed with great redfishing down in Bayou Dularge, LA. This time of year we follow the reds to the deep holes and ambush them with nothing but the cracked crab. All of the major arteries leading to and from the major lakes are holding fish in the 20 ft plus holes of the bends in the channels. It's almost too easy! We look for this action to last through the.... Read More
The fishing at Sweetwater Marina in Delacroix today was action packed. In Black Bay they were catching beautiful Trout. Most were caught around the rigs, Stone Island and at some of the other usual spots in Black Bay. Reds were also caught today in the interior marshes. Most fish were caught with live shrimp. We have about 6000 beautiful shrimp in the tanks. So give the weather a check and.... Read More

Just Acquired 120 acres of the thickest pine forest I have ever hunted. I really dont know how much I will be able to plant. Need good tips on how to attract and keep deer on this tract.I'm not new to deer hunting, just having my own place.
It felt great hooking up with my high school friend for some good Louisiana fishing. Best of all, we hooked up on lots of fish! It was surely a blast. We went to Point Aux Chenes to fish some of the areas I mainly fish and it definitely paid off. He told me itís been a while since he caught some Redfish so I was determined to find a good school of fish to at least get him his limit to take home..... Read More
Friend went beach crabbing a week ago on Elmer's and did well. Now I read crabbing is not allowed on Elmer's due to restrictions. Asked friend and they said beach had many people crabbing and wildlife and fisheries was present. Anyone know what the deal is? Can we crab on Elmer's or not?
No reports from the spillway this weekend? I know the river level is right, and judging by the hundreds of boats I saw at Spillway Sportsman's and Dickies on the way to work this weekend I'm surprised not to see any reports...
My family have been lucky enough to get stationed in NO for the next few years (a welcome change after several tours overseas). We are trying to determine where to live. I am from Florida and love to fish inshore, I have a small bay boat that I plan to put to work in Louisiana. I will be working out of the Corps of Engineers Office, which is pretty much downtown.
