Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana

  • Paw-Paw, Brother Errol and Pierce with some of the day's bag.
  • Steel and I returning from rounding up some ducks.
  • 'Steel', my new puppy trained by B-Young Retrievers, and some of his first retrieves of the day.
I did not have a guided trip today so I jumped at the chance to hunt with my dad, brother and nephew. We waited for the rain to let up some and were set up for 10:00. We battled the wind and tough shooting conditions and finished our 24 duck limit a little after 1:00. Mostly greys with a drake pintail, a widgeon, and 2 mottled ducks throw in. Some advise on these hard wind days is to put the....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Louisiana
I've been researching on Google Maps and the best launch site I can figure for this area is Eddie Pinto's Bait Shop just south of the ICW bridge on Paris Road. It looks like a paddle of a little less than two miles.

Or is there a closer spot to put in?

It looks like easy fishing when it's cold: http://www.nola.com/outdoors/index.ssf/2014/11/early_winter_drives_easy_speck.html

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
I was wondering if the shooting hours that LADWF puts in the waterfowl pamphlets applies to us that hunt private leased property? I have been making evening hunts in delacroix and the birds are everywhere right when it begins to get dark which is right outside of what would be 'shooting hours'.

Boats in Central Louisiana
So while I was coming in from duck hunting this morning the motor stopped peeing. I shut it down and paddled to shore. I ran a wire through the outlet line and intake holes on the bottom are clear. It'll spit a little bit of water but not a steady stream. Is the water pump going bad or is there anything else that would cause this to happen? Thanks in advance for the advice!

  • Mallards of the Northern variety
  • What'cha taling bout Willis
  • Lots of birds.
This season has started off really good for us. Opening day last weekend we hit a spot where the Mallards wanted to be and finished with 11. I can't recall killing so Many Mallards in the marsh on opener. That really was a special hunt.

This past Friday I got an invite to Port Acres, TX for a marsh hunt and from the moment we started pushpoling the marsh you could hear the....  Read More

  • This IS the “TREE of LIFE” in HOPEDALE. Louisiana
I have fished out of Hopedale, Louisiana, for many, many years. This is a SE Louisiana village of fisherman and sports anglers since its inception. What you see here in these pictures is a striking view of a lone tree in an endless field of marsh grass and water—standing out like an announcement of survival to all its viewers for endless miles around. I can’t tell you how long it has stood here.....  Read More

I hunt the marshes for duck season and I fish the Atchafalaya Basin year round, and I want to start duck hunting the basin as well. Can anyone share a little advice on how to scout the basin timber areas for ducks. Any info is greatly appreciated.

This hunt started very slow , east wind and clear . Starting at about 8:30 am we had lots of Geese moving about and into the spread at a low decent . But the sun shining on the large decoy spread and the Geese coming from the west , it seemed like at the last minute they would see our spread shining and flare off .... We ended up with 8 specks and 1 snow . Not bad for bad conditions .

This morning started slow East wind with clouds . Our large spread should not reflect the sun today . At about 7:30 the geese started moving around and into our spread . We were able to get them fairly close today . We ended the hunt at around 8:30 with 14 specks our limit . The shooting was very good , with close birds .

Best opening weekend in years. Lots of ducks. Looks like a good season ahead. I have a few days left open first split And several after Christmas. I have limits or near limits every hunt this week. The next front should bring in more birds for thanksgiving week.

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana

The weather is looking up for tomorrow, we have plenty of live shrimp and we would love to see you, so come on down. And if you can't make it tomorrow the weather and fishing should be great for the rest of....  Read More

I'm curious to see what clubs are charging for guest fees. Is the fee different for big game versus small game? And if your guest hunts in the same stand as a member, does the fee still apply? Thanks

Big buck down I had a little history with this buck we called turkeyfoot. He got his name due to the palmetto of his G2,G3 and G4 on his left side looking like a turkey foot. I shot him last year my arrow was deflected by a small limb hitting him in his hip. Fast forward one year later back in Illinois same farm, same ridge, same stand on the first evening I see him tending a doe, grunting like....  Read More
