Interesting article on what’s going on with red snapper management these days. Sector separation, and Amendment 40, etc…as Joe Macaluso says, a lot of words, but no deeds…

  • BULL!!
After several attempts me and a buddy FINALLY found a place with frogs. Unfortunately we need to refine our techniques but we did manage 25 of the 100 or so frogs we saw. Yea I know pretty bad average but I havent done this since I was a kid and we're still relearning.

Question tho. What's the easiest way to tell a pig from a bull? I've looked online but can't find much or a pic of.... Read More

Biting every cast yesterday, thinking it would be a easy repeat.....NOT. The reds were there and stacked, but.... Read More

Hey yall,

Looking to switch rounds for my winchester model 70 .270. I had been shooting 150gr ballistic tips and found that I was NEVER getting a blood trail; resorted to shoulder shots which equaled wasted meat. I have begun researching and know that I want to drop down to 130gr. I don't expect to have to make shots past 250-300 yds.

I'm looking at Accubonds, Interbonds, or.... Read More

Luckily in Dularge we have plenty of options. Our Inolect crew is in for two days and with the redfish bite being solid we decided to stick with it. We started off a little late fishing a grass line with gold spoons. We caught 5 quick and then the reds stopped cooperating. A lot of them would just bump our spoons but wouldn't commit. We put a couple more in the K2 before we moved and found a.... 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

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

Smoked fish dip is one of the most delicious, and easy-to-make horderves. Just a little of this and that, and in no time you can look like a hero to your friends and neighbors over for dinner or watching the game.

I’m not a “Night Owl” but when it comes to fishing, I’ll happily skip a night of sleep. I headed out with Matthew Ory and Michael Marcello along with some other friends for some night time Speckled Trout action. Launching out of Jug’s Landing in Dularge, Louisiana, we all knew we were going to have a good trip because of the conditions. Once we arrived to our first location at one of the rigs,.... Read More

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

Garmin Data to Lowrance protocol
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Dog dude ~

No! Waypoints written in a computer language for a Garmin unit will NOT work in a Lowrance unit and conversely.

You MUST change the format that Lowrance has designed for their units.

The hard way is to re-enter all of the waypoints manually into your Elite-7 unit or find a way to convert them.

I use a program called GPS BABEL. It has the ability to reformat many different types of formats from one to another.

It is a free program on the internet at http://www.gpsbabel.org/

I suggest that you download the program in your computer and experiment with the conversion options. It is a real time saver.

First save the Garmin waypoints to a file then do the conversion, never overwriting the saved file.

To use the data, you will need a SPARE DATA card and the Lowrance transfer program called INSIGHT PLANNER. This is a worth while investment as it will allow you to transfer data from the GPS to your Computer and from the computer to your GPS unit. Saving your waypoints to a computer or thumb drive, etc, will give you the option of backing up all of your data.

  • 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.

So Mary Landrieu announced her latest attempt to betray our state today, turning the bulk of the Atchafalaya Basin into a national park! While at first that may sound like a good thing, she is lauding fictitious restoration funds and 'improved acess for tourist', what it really means is a giant NO HUNTING sign in the center of our coast. Also no further oil and gas activity in the area. This.... Read More

I had a crew onboard who wanted to give Redfish a try because 2 of the 3 had never caught a Redfish. I tied everyone on a Gold Spoon and off we went into the duck ponds , it didn't take long and the first drag was screaming. We went to work on them pretty quick catching 9 keeper fish and quite a few undersized in the first hour of fishing then it slowed up on us a little and we had to make a.... Read More

I recently read an article (sorry can't remember where) and it was talking about how next year you may not be able to fish for red snapper in federal waters unless you have a commercial liscense or hire someone to take you? I may not have read it and understood it fully. Can anyone give me any information on this or explain what that means? Thank you.
