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'm a newbie and just went on a charter last weekend and had a blast. I wanted to check out the pier at Calcasieu and wondered if it would be worth it if I was only looking to catch 2-3 fish? If so, what kind of bait would you recommend?
We've been slaying the bull reds in the Cameron Jetties this past year, boating an average of 6 or so per trip, sometimes wearing everyone out. Cracked crab on a 7/0 Gamagatsu Octopus J hook is much more effective than cut mullet. Great times. I've attached a pic of our favorite spots.
1. Good spot when it is too rough outside, about 50 yards N of green channel marker right across.... Read More
Over the past few months, we've been catching bull reds consistently in the surf at Holly Beach. We prefer cracked crab for bait, but cut mullet have also worked well. 8 ft ugly sticks can put the bait far enough out, but we've done a bit better with the 12 ft surf rods.
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
Fishing Magician Charterswould like to wish everyone reading this a Happy Easter. My family took off today to spend some quality time together. We will be back on the water again this week. Keep watching for our reports. As you may have seen our emails were hacked, however, we are now in business again. We also have a boat slip with electric hoists, electricity, water, and cleaning tables for.... Read More
Anybody got suggestions on getting a waterfront camp insured. Camp is on pilings about 5 feet above flood elevation. Fire and liability only. Any recommendations appreciated. This is a drive up camp in city limits and not a boat access only location.
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
Thinking about fishing Lacombe area in the am. Just trying to see if anybody been doing any good there or going to be out there in the am. Just started kayak fishing and haven't been b out there in yrs.
Got off to a late start this morning, over slept and had a dead cranking battery. Finally launched the boat around 8:00 am in Larose. Motored down to Golden Meadows to try the flats for reds or maybe some trout on top water. No luck, wind was ripping against the incoming tide. Went on down towards Lake Raccourci, no specks, just one ole bull red that got away. Came back to Catfish Bay and worked.... Read More
