Inshore Fishing in The Rigolets / Lake Catherine in Southeast Louisiana
Anyone ever fish there? Lots of man made jetties to protect the marsh. I remember reading an article about Capt Vandenborre tearing up trout there on a west wind, but other than that one article no one seems to know anything about it. Anybody got any info on that area?

Anyways, my trip to MRGO got ruined yesterday when i got called in to work so i may try that out. if that doesnt work i....  Read More

It is that time of year again! Time for the Paw-Paw's Pirogues Family to get after the Gators. Looks like a rainy weekend but we are planning to give it a shot anyway. We will also be looking to see how many teal are in the area. Here are a few pics from a couple years ago. We like to run some the lines from our Pirogues. Makes the experience a little more personal.

  • Pop showing his sons how its done
  • Fine mess of marsh critters before the rain hit.
  • Had to hop out on the grass to net this one out of a back pond we cast into.
Had a great day on the water today despite the spotty weather. Had a crew split three and three between two boats, myself and Captain Jacques of http://www.jakamosouth.com/. We pretty much knew we had a 1/2 day to get it done with the weather rolling in and decided on plan redfish. We went to two different spots and got on a good bite early. My crew was fishing some little tiny ponds off a....  Read More

Hello fellow sportsmen,

Does anyone have any feedback from hunting Doves at WMA's, and who has had any luck. I have hunted the Point-Aux-Chenes WMA in the past, but the fields are closed more often than not (due to waterfowl season and wetlands in close proximity). It has always been hit or miss for me.

I'm looking into trying out some other WMA's or even booking a guided hunt....  Read More

Hello Again Cyber Anglers,

Rain and wind prevented us from filming Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday we caught a break in the morning so I ran to the Power Lines on the East Canal. Squid Row fishes that neck of the woods and the last time he was down he showed me a short cut. I returned the favor by helping him clean their 80+ White Trout. He told me that if ever the weather is rough, he can....  Read More

Team 'Dat Sauce' was onboard with me today!! Johnny Lancon, Shannon Bruni, Jerry Cook, and Garrett Cook. Reds were on the menu and man did this crew bust them up!! Cracked crab Carolina rigged in a 20 ft hole had the reds coming into the Bluewave every cast. The new line up of Shimano Rod/reels worked over the reds perfectly. Good times with a fantastic crew. Looking forward to their return....  Read More

I just got my boat back from the shop and had to do a break in period for the motor. So I decided to stay close and fish lake Boudreaux with a few buddies. We launched at noon and it took 30 min to get to the first spot because we had to idle or just above idle the whole way. Only one red at the first location. So we made a move and got a few more then nothing. I decided to run the boat a little....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana

The bite was extremely slow all day with only about 25 bull reds registered out of over 700 angers on the water. Tide movement was little to none up until maybe 10:30 but a few reds were registered almost immediately. Team Marshyakkin waited all day but that winning bite never presented itself. With 30 minutes left in the tournament Kade Stuart caught about a 25 pound Black drum and this is....  Read More

Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I'm getting ready to build a pond on some land I just purchased. It already has a small pond (1/4) acre but I want to make it 1-1.5 acres in size. Does anyone have recommendations of someone on the northshore that digs ponds?

Had a great trip today, with four fishermen who do not eat fish. Only Jarret had fished much before but all were quick studies and after a couple warm up rounds, it was off to the races! We started off at a wellhead in Breton that has been producing lots of limits lately and picked away but they never did really go. Hit rig #2 started pulling in some better fish right off the bat on a cork....  Read More

is the gulp shrimp really worth the money? I know a lot of captains and weekend warriors both are switching to it for specks and reds because live bait is 'to expensive' but 10 gulp shrimp is 20$. and are they better then the vudu shrimp. last year I had the best trip ive ever had thanks to the vudu shrimp but again their on average 7$ for 2....

  • NEW LAND LOOKS GREAT
For the past several years the government are working on the Bayou Dupont area to increase land. At present time they are spending millions for 360 acers of land. To get their heavy equipment to the area they want to work they need to build a canal for several miles. Here is a picture of the spoil area that was just mud several months ago. Just think how much land we could have if they had used....  Read More

Just wanted to say thanks to all of our fans who have come out to the Outdoor Shows or who went on our website (www.duckdownwaterfowl.com) and purchased our DVDs, lanyards, or decals. It has not been easy to get people to understand why we choose to only film waterfowl hunts in Louisiana and why we refuse to go anywhere else. Those that have understood what we are trying to show, thank you. We....  Read More

Readers, our Chalmette Refining Petition is now at 960 names. I certainly had hoped we'd be well over 2,000 by now. However, when we reach about 1,050, I think we'll call it quits and publish the petition. I'd like about 50 above 1,000 as some did not fill in their address and I'll have to e-mail them to please send in their address.

SO, PLEASE continue to talk up the petition so....  Read More
