I've been out of town at the World Deer Expo in Alabama since Thursday. Came in last night and picked up customers this morning and picked up right where I left off. Skull dragging the trout!! We arrived this morning to an absolute slugfest from the first cast. A couple of my guys were new and needed some coaching but we worked out the kinks in short order and just completely destroyed the.... Read More
Been on the water the last 5 days. Fun trips despite all the rain and wind we have been having. Fish have not been stacked up in one area you just have to bounce around and put them together most days. I have been catching in the bays just before the outside, also in Eloi, and then some going long into Breton. Same tactics as usual, fishing corks for the first couple hours of light then most....

Finished up my work day on the tug boat yesterday afternoon. Right before it got dark decided to throw a few casts just passing time. I was throwing a popping cork with a matrix shad and it got rocked. The fish was pulling hard and staying down so I thought I had a decent red. The fish never shower herself until on the side of the tug and when she did panic set in. It was a Huge trout. I was.... 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

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
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.
Tried to fish all week but the storms and high winds make it tough. Fished in the rain Friday and the bass went crazy. Tried to fish Sat. but could hear the lighting coming so left went. Was at the camp a short time and out of no where a major lighting strike hit and almost knocked me off the swing. This could have been bad for anyone in a boat. Came from no where and it was the only strike..... Read More
ESI arrived at The Reel Inn Dularge Sunday night and were treated to a boiled seafood dinner prepared by Chef Rickie Daigle. After breakfast we had four boats head out in search of the bronze backs. All boats found a slower than usual bite, but still managed a box mixed with reds, puppy drum, bass, and a few lost trout. We made it back for a weigh in of a five fish red stringer, cleaned fish,.... Read More
Finally received my Trophy Speckled Hind. Second one ever caught in Louisiana. Louisiana Outdoor Writer's Association registered it as #2 Louisiana State Record. I am very proud of this Trophy. Next month is the Fish of the Year award voted by the LOWA. Hope my rare catch is in the running for that award!
