Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
I am coming to New Orleans with a group of six guys total. We want to do a fishing trip that is close to New Orleans where we can drink beer and catch fish. We want to do a semi short trip due to limited time in NOLA. Would be open to charters, guided trips, big flat bottom boats. We are open to late morning, afternoon, or evening trip.

Also, we are all from Texas so need info on one day.... Read More

We announced the start of a Petition on July 9th to URGE Chalmette Refining to resume the manufacture and sale of ethanol FREE gasoline from their refinery’s truck rack in Chalmette.

Over the first week, we were having an average of 100+ signatures per day sign up. At that rate, I felt we would have well over 1,000 by now. It is now 13 days since we launched the petition and we have.... Read More

  • The fish that yanked Matt overboard!
  • 'This ones going on the wall' his grandpa said!
While running a charter yesterday Matt hooked into a monster Bull Red. After 20 mins I tightened the drag a little bit. The fish ran under the boat then shot out yanking Matt right off the bow of the boat. Luckily he did not let go of rod. We got him back in, he immediately grabbed the rod and 15 mins later the monster was in the boat. This was his biggest fish ever!! Congrats Mathew on getting.... Read More

Kayak Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Second trip to PAC. Fished the southern section off of Island Rd. Last time I was down there I checked that area out and they were 3 guys that killed the reds. So I went there today. Got a late start but first cast fish on! That's how it was for about 30 mins with h&h plastic. Every other cast fish on- but all small trouts and reds. And then nothing but harheads on dead shrimp. I can't.... Read More

I just wanted to pass this along in case someone's looking for ammunition. I've searched for months to find a couple boxes of 22 magnum with no luck. Hard to believe a few short years ago I could walk into Walmart and the Winchester boxes where stacked three wide and ten deep with them for around $11.00 a box of 50. I found a place on the internet and they had the Armscor 22 magnum in 40 grain.... Read More

I'm replacing an old rotten transom in a small 12 foot bateau. I'm just curious as to who has done this before and what tips you can give me. What type of wood? Did you treat it with anything special? I figure someone out there has some really good homemade ideas. Thanks in advance.

Good day down in Dularge working the duck ponds! Pink Champagne matrix with a 1.5 gold spinner did the damage today. Always great when kids can go out and catch fish. Thanks to my friend Travis at reeling good charters for putting me on the fish!! If we would have had live minnows it would have been 15 reds in the box. Nevertheless it was a fun day!!

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
A friend of mine e-mailed me some of his way points and I opened them via Garmin's 'home port'software program on my apple pc.

I have a lowrance Elite-7 HDI chartplotter with a Standard Mapping chip. If I copy the way points to a blank micro sd card, will my Lowrance read them or will the code only be read by a Garmin GPS? Is there a way I can transfer the data without manually.... Read More

Phillip and I decided to make an inshore/offshore trip to GI on 7/21. Started off on the beaches which were covered in shrimp/birds/11' trout. Birds were diving as far we could see. Decided to make a move once the rains past and hit paydirt. Got our limit of very very solid trout. All trout were caught on live croakers about 3' under a cork. Went back to sand dollar for some frozen poiges and.... Read More

  • Michael's first ever red
  • Good times
Patrick Miller and his son Michael came in from Houston to get in on some of our fishing. Michael currently swimming for Duke University had never fished before so after I stopped the boat, I gave him a quick lesson on how to work a spinning rod and a gold spoon. I trolled about 20 yards before the first red smacked our spoon. Powerpole went down and we didn't move until #15 hit the box. Since.... Read More

What's the best 23hp surface drive for the money that will preform well in stumps. My long tail just isn't cutting it, I need a little more speed but don't wanna break the bank.

Today Capt.Jack went out with Norris, Keith and Garrett Gremillion. Because of the bad weather the catch of the day was 5 trout 5 bull reds and one small red. Capt. Jack felt they should have went fishing for reds instead of trout. Some guys caught their limit on specks. The weather was bad today but its looking like there is less chance of rain for the rest of the week. If your ready to book a.... Read More

  • Black Drum caught in south central Louisiana.
Black Drum Secrets

Black drum are a popular sport fish in Texas, Florida, and up the Atlantic coast as far as Virginia. They are eschewed among many anglers in Louisiana due to the abundance of redfish and speckled trout, but they are actually the most important commercial fishfish in Louisiana owing to the excellent meat quality and their popularity as imitation crab.
