Hey there,

Can anyone provide any areas to fish from the la/ms boarder back to Pass Christian? My brother purchased a camp and we wanted to see what the fishing is like in the area. Your help is appreciated.

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

We had a cancelation for a gator hunt so we took the opportunity to make it a family trip. The gators are acting a little funny and are not aggressively feeding. Most lines have nice gators under them but they are not commiting to the baits. We did manage some nice ones and had a great time in the Delacroix marsh. We also spotted a few teal moving into the area. This is why we leave the dogs....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Central Louisiana
I just moved back to the state and haven't been to Old River in years. I want to make a sac-a-lait trip sometime this week and plan to launch at Old River landing. Really don't have a clue as to where to begin. From the landing, which direction should I go, left/right, straight across, etc?

Thanks in advance.
Crosbytiger.

This was a....  Read More

Bass Fishing in South Central Louisiana
Good evening, folks, and thank you for taking the time to read this.

I moved to Lafayette from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania a few months ago. I love it down here. And recently, during a vacation in Toledo Bend with my fiancee, I discovered that I love bass fishing.

You've probably heard this before- guy goes bass fishing on vacation, doesn't catch anything, comes home, keeps going....  Read More

What a weekend of Bowfishing. Started off Thursday night with a group from Lafayette. We ended up with 23 redfish and over 200 shots taken. Our Friday group boarded the boat with high expectations after hearing the success we had the previous night. With s little stronger winds and a later tide range we had to fish a little harder to find then but once the wind calmed down it was on fire. ....  Read More

Finally the Atchafalaya river is on the fall. This has turned on the freshwater fishing from the marshes of Bayou Black to the spillway all the way to Old River in the North to the wax lake outlet to the south. Look for moving water. Not the black swamp water, but nice green water. The fish are on wood and grass.
Monday we caught 100 sacalait and then on Tuesday we had a 4-man limit of....  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

Fished today from 7am to 3pm, started at camp docks at cypremort point (nothing), hammock lake area (nothing), SW pass (2 x 12' trout on plastics nothing on live shrimp) and shark bayou (1 x 20' red on gold spoon).

After putting the boys on some big bull reds yesterday, we decided to hit up the rigs for trout. The water barely had any ripples it was so calm. We caught several trout and my sons buddy got himself a surprise monster drum.

Thursday afternoon Bisso Marine came into the Reel Inn Lodge. Chef Rickie Daigle worked up his magic and everyone went to bed full. Friday we set out with trout on the menu!!! The trout were found and caught. My crew slammed the big trout and we actually left them biting every-cast on double rigged Matrix Shad. The bite was fast and furious. We made it back for lunch as Chef Rick had a....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Louisiana

I just started running my feeder and raccoons have taken over. I understand that there are many pictures of deer and raccoons at feeders at the same time but I think I may have a problem. With this large group at my feeder 24/7 I fear I may not see many deer. What are the limits/laws around hunting raccoons? What should I do here?

  • Best office a man can ask for
After Thursday's redfish trip I helped out Capt. Marty with BISSO Marine on Friday and Saturday. Calmer winds and clean water had the big girls hungry for our double rigged Matrix. Both days were similar in results and we didn't have to move around much. Today was different, Cade Chandler and his buddy Red joined me with Capt. Rob running the second boat with Jonathan Landry'crew. The guys....  Read More

Hunting in Louisiana
Hunters beware of Pat Heughan of Kimpatadv.com. This guy is a crook and a compulsive lier. He will tell you anything to get your money. He trys leasing out hunting land and tells you all these great things about the property and they all turn out to be lies. I would suggest to not give these people any money for any kind of hunts or leases cause he will screw you. The dude is a joke
