Louisiana has always allowed small bore muzzle loaders (the 'squirrel guns' of battle of New Orleans fame) for small game hunting including on WMAs. I do believe that when the requirement was moved from 'muzzle loader' to 'primitive rifle' the wording was changed in reference to small game as well as large. So theoretically any one with a single shot cartridge rifle suitable.... Read More
Oyster dredging was legalized in Big Lake in 2005 while CCA was too busy in bed with the LWF Commission working to get the restrictive speck limits passed. Here's a graph showing the LDWF Oyster Stock Assessments on the east side of Calcasieu Lake from 2004-2013. Note the near total destruction.
Oyster issues on the E side of the state are more complex with freshwater diversions and the.... Read More
I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has.... Read More
Guys. Quick question. I would like to target some of the shallow ponds in Lafitte for red fish from now and into the summer. My question is this. Typically do you guys concentrate south of the Bayou Perot/Rigolets are can productive waters be located in and around the north central parts of Perot/Rigolets?
I have been doing really well soaking shrimp on the bottom near the jetties but.... Read More

My son and I decided to take a quick run to Lake Boudreaux yesterday evening. We launched the boat @ 3:30PM and was back at the house @ 6:30 with a limit of nice big reds. We had a lot of the bigger ones that kept popping the lines while the drags were screaming. We fished north side of the two pilings about 8FT off the rocks. We also caught a lot of drum. The only bait we had was one pound of.... Read More
There are two drag lines making a canal in the Pen on the west side where it enters Bayou DuPont. They take dirt and put it in the Pen making a canal along the west bank with new rocks. My question is why not put this mud behind the rocks that they just put into place. Why put it out in the Pen. Now this is the kicker they did this over a year ago and came back and put this mud back in the canal.... Read More
Whether it's Nevada, Texas, or the Gulf of Mexico the Police State has started! Whether it's a tortoise or a red snapper expect the unexpected. While illegal's throw stones at Border Patrol agents and those agents 'stand down', American Citizens have sniper rifles pointed at them and are stopped by sailors on a Coast Guard cutter behind a .50 cal. Make no mistake, this is not about a.... Read More
Maybe someone can help me understand why the used guns for sale in the classifieds section are listed for more than you can buy them brand new for. My theory is that the people buying these guns have less than stellar back grounds and can't buy new. If that is the case it won't be worth the 100.00 you made selling the gun to have to spend an afternoon with investigators when something goes.... Read More
