  • Lonely PLine Red 6 13 2015
Took quick glance at Accuweather and realized me and duck-hunting buddy had very slight window of opportunity to chase some PowerLine Pilings reds and we made the trek across the big pond and we were greeted with less-than-ideal conditions at the Williams Blvd Launch and buddy decided to stay put and I stuck to plan,hit few pilings and only managed exactly one bite and one fish,decent 17 inch....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Southeast Louisiana

Hello. I am a die hard deer hunter. Been duck hunting a few times (dont have much experience) when invited along with friends. However, this year i would like my 8 year old to experience it. I would like to take him in the Biloxi Marsh WMA (I fish around that area). Im not asking for spots to go, just pointers on what to look for, types of decoys, etc.... I have a 12' riveted boat, like this....  Read More

Bruce Neagle and J'Rome brought their ladies out for a day of fishing and these ladies had the time of their lives. As you can see from the pictures the fish were on from the start of the day. Just at sunrise the first fish hit and it never stopped till the box was almost full. Cracked crab, live pogies and live mullets were the bait of choice this day. It was a one stop shop for the big fish....  Read More

  • That's a table of fish!! IIEEEEEEE
  • Another nice 'griller'
  • Another nice 'keeper'
Capt. Kevin slammed the redfish again. The red fish bite is outstanding in the marsh area south of Lafitte. Capt. Kevin put his last charter on some great sized grilling fish. Most of the fish were caught on market shrimp under a Bomber cork, but a few were caught on gold spoons and spinner baits. Capt. Kevin has knowledge of areas with moving water around points with freshwater grass holding....  Read More

  • my portion I took home for the taking
  • Little brother's half he took home.. ca ce Bon!
The little brother, and myself, headed down to good ol Cocodrie Louisiana to give the trout something to chew on and boy did we ever! We wound up catching over each a limit and losing a few in the process also yielding some catches that were rendered too small. We played catch and release with a few trout, reds and sheephead but overall wound up with a damn good mess of fish! We probably had....  Read More

  • I can't feel my arms!!!!
Saturday around 2pm Jeremy hooked into this Jack Cravelle (Sawmill Pass at the mouth of Lake Catherine). Had to pull up the anchor quick and the chase was on. 45 minutes and about a half mile later we got this sucker in the boat. I have never seen a fish fight like this in my life, it would not give up!

This is first Jack I've actually seen in this area but I've been spooled before....  Read More

  • Camper door
  • Tag in ear
  • Big Bear
I made it up to my hunting property this past Saturday in Catahoula Parish only to find that a bear had broken into my camper. He ripped open the door like a tin can went inside and ripped down the stove top exhaust cover and fan from the wall. He then proceeded to open up the cabinets, turned on a light, opened the refrigerator, and flipped over some of the cushions and mattresses. He found 2-3....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Spectacular fishing today on Delacroix Island at Sweetwater Marina. Capt. Jack went out this morning with Capt. CT Williams to film a spot for the BIGFISH REPORT which will air Thursday night on FOX 8 NEWS at 9 and they only had to hit one spot to get what they needed and more. That one spot was Black Bay by one of the rigs. Fishing with live shrimp three feet under a popping cork they hauled....  Read More

Rock jetties near open saltwater, with nearby marsh areas, offer coastal fishermen great action, where sometimes they get lucky and catch inshore 'slams' of flounder, seatrout and redfish.

Boats in Louisiana
We are looking to buy a floating house/fish camp. We are new at this and can't find any information on the net on what to do about maintenance on the steel pontoons underneath. What equipment is needed to pull it out of the water in order to paint and check the pontoons and how often is this needed? It is not motorized so it will be sitting in the water. It is an older houseboat with wood....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I am still in shock! I was fishing around the Sulphur mine on Saturday, using the trolling motor to move down the southeast side to the point and then work the southwest side with the gravel for reds. Had a close friend and his 22 year old son with me. I could see a boat coming from Last Island toward the point I was trolling around and that boat was coming fast. That boat pulled up about 50....  Read More

Yep, it's still summer, but this NE Florida VERY nice buck is rubbing his rack against saplings, and is looking very hard at the ladies in his neighborhood. Scrapes also are popping up throughout much of NE Florida.....and it's still hot and wet and muggy. Go figure.

FYI, the scammers have found a way to circumvent at lease one line of defense. They are now using a text/phone app to get a local number. Suspicious, I called a couple of them and the VM picks up and says the text now subscriber is unavailable.

I assume they are hoping most folks will text so that they can mine your cell number to sell.

Freshwater Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
Photo Album
The weather is beginning to cool off and the water temperature is dropping. This signals the shad to start moving around. This is a great period on Toledo Bend to fish for sacalait (crappie). Fishing brush tops in the 15-25ft range water depth are key. The sacalait are filling up on shad, minnows, and small fry. We throw the Slim Jimmy in Salt N Pepper color this time of year because of the....  Read More

Bass Fishing in Toledo Bend in Central Louisiana
With the cooler weather, it seems like the fish are beginning their fall patterns. We saw a lot of shad moving around in the mornings and late evenings. With bass schooling up to feed on the balls of shad. Some fish are still deep while others are moving up shallow. Big Worms and Crankbaits are producing fish in the mornings and evenings. Soon we will be able to get bites on shad-type lures.....  Read More
