Peter Du Boise came down with his wife Evelyn and son Petie to tour LSU on Monday. They figured while down in LA they should check the fishing scene out. They picked a beautiful day. We left out at day break and started where I beat up the trout yesterday. We were fishing a reef with a Shrimp Creole Matrix under a cork. My crew didn't waste anytime as they were consistently catching. They had.... Read More
Why is there an absence of fishing reports from regular weekend warriors? All I see is reports from guide boats. The guides are the best, we all know that & this site is great for advertising but what about us blue collar boys? If I end up with 6 or 8 fish for the day that's enough to feed my family. Come on boys lets weigh in with the big dogs & share a little info. I can only.... Read More
I read an article several years ago that discussed several squirrel sub-species in Louisiana and gave the name of a very large, rare Fox squirrel that is indigenous to East Feliciana parish, as well as a taxidermist, near Clinton, that specializes in mounting these squirrels. Can anyone tell me the name of the squirrel and/or taxidermist, please? I can't remember or find information. For some.... Read More
I don't think anyone saw this coming with the beautiful conditions laid before us today on the water. Slick calm, light wind, sunny skies and mild temperatures had me feeling like it was going to be epic! First stop didn't produce a fish despite emerald green water. Neither did the second or the third! Fishing numerous spots in Lake Mechant devoid of bait had me scratching my head. I decided.... Read More
It's been awhile since I've posted so I figured now would be a good time since the winds blowing and I'm not fishing. Last trip I fished was Saterday, 4-12, the day before the front came through. The fishing was awesome! I had one guy come down that was eager to hammer on some yellow fins, and that we did! We had his limit of yellow fins in the boat, realeased two yellowfins and caught a few.... Read More
Kinda getting a little late in the season but they keep hangin on mainly biting when the weather is overcast with wind. It's crazy when the wind gets to whippin a little and the water, grass, and lily pads began movin; the fish become aggressive including bass. Shiners,jigs and patience mixed with frustration because the wind is moving you into all kinds of positions...you and boat going one.... Read More
With the thought of capsizing in the big pond due to the gale force winds yesterday,i decided to visit catfish lake.i havent fished there in 10 years but if you cant catch fish in catfish lake you might want to pick another hobby.with the high north wind we stayed on the north broken shoreline.what works for me in the marsh,especially when youve got all that wind blown water is to troll around....

Recent transplant from TN to Baton Rouge. Looking for a place I can fish with easy access. I have picked up that BR isn't the best spot so I understand I'll have a drive. I've got a 16ft War Eagle with a 25hp so not a boat for big water and I have a 10ft kayak. I'm not picky about what I catch just like being out and catching fish. Any pointers or suggestions would be great.
OK guys. My old GE electric knife passed away after 15 years and can't find another one. Went to Wal Mart and tried the Hamilton beach and Black and Decker. Neither one lasted 15 fish. brought both back. Is there any electric knife out there that anyone can recommend? Thanks
This is my first post to reports and I just wanted throw a recommendation out there. I have switched mechanics to a mobile service after being duped by a couple other places (won't name them.) He has gone above and beyond to make sure I'm taken care of. And he comes to me! His name is Derek 'Sharky' Whitehurst and he runs a mobile mechanic service by the name of Dockside Yacht....

Baseball tourney make customer move fishing weekend. I now have the weekend of 25th, 26th and the 27th open if someone would like to fish during the spring run. Still doing much of the same for the past few weeks, but the trout are starting to show them selves in the regular spots around the Island. Redfish are the goto fish for the most part but trout are warming up later in the day..... Read More
Erik and Shannon Mollerberg jumped onboard the big Bluewave today. Our first stop had us slow picking away at some keepers while most were too small. Our second and third stop had nice trout going 15-18 inch's. Crystal clear water at most locations today made it nice. Tiger and Green Hornet Matrix tight-lined and Shrimp Creole Matrix and Chartreuse Reel Dat Lures under a cork did the trick..... Read More
Some celebrate Good Friday with a crawfish boil while Hank Hobards and family spent the morning fishing. With little surprise we woke up to a brisk wind and a little sprinkle. Hank's better half Liz started us off with the first fish but the first stop was a bust just as it has been the last couple of trips. Fish are there today and gone tomorrow right now so keep moving until you find them..... Read More
