  • Double 100lb trouble
  • Gotta love 54lb willy the Warsaw!
  • No more room at 11am! Done
This past week has been excellent!! Every rig I have tried to fish has produced fish in good numbers! Tuna are very plentiful, and so are the big mahi's! Not to mention the rip lately looks as if Guy Harvey painted it! Red snappers are close to 20lb limits, mangroves are huge and are usually no problem limits! Along with some delicious groupers, and any other reef species! Lately it has been....  Read More

Want to pass on an experience I had with our Wildlife and Fisheries agency today. On June 4th, I went to the Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries website, just like I've done for so many years, to renew my hunting and fishing licenses. I've always felt that the $2.50 service charge fee for them sending your license and tags to you in the mail was more than worth the small charge. This year, my....  Read More

Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
Just bought my first beagle after rabbit hunting solo for a few seasons now. With a lot of success I wanted to change the game and have more fun with a huntin partner. She is started and has run a few rabbits and I have only had her a month. My only problem is she seems to not circle them. I may be too anxious when she goes out of sight in the thick summer brush and swamps but she barks and then....  Read More

This should get interesting

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - Bow-hunters can now carry guns of all sizes in Louisiana after Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a new bill into law Monday.

Sen. Rick Ward, R-Port Allen, introduced Senate Bill 212, which removes a restriction on guns for bow-hunters.

Previously, they could only carry guns no larger than a .22 caliber pistol with ammunition....  Read More

Archery in Central Louisiana
I just purchased a Barnett quad 400 crossbow & was wondering which broadhead would be best to use. It came with reticle scope. I haven't had much time to set it yet, but I've shot it a few round & it groups great @15yds. any advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm new to crossbows! I've always only hunted with a firearm. I thought I'd try something new this year!

The Rip has been beautiful the last two weeks; it was approximately 30-50 miles depending on direction. The first week we hammered 125 dolphins with some large bulls, most fish were caught on cut bait, we cast netted live mullet beforehand and it seemed to produce the big bulls. The second weekend was the same story, had a crew from work and it was their first experience to see a rip. The crew....  Read More

Pat and his son Mike Brandon came down from Tennessee to sample some of the great fishing south Louisiana has to offer. Well if you were anywhere near south Louisiana on 6-29-2015 you know the west wind was blowing and the water was not very clean. That didn't stop Pat and Mike from catching their trout. First stop was in the rough on the beach in dirty water, and before the Power pole broke we....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
Is it just me or is Black Bay not holding the trout right now. I saw a gar at Lonesome Island so I'm thinking the fresh water has got the trout on the run. I'm just getting back to fishing the Hopedale area and could use some good tips on where I could go to find some trout. I haven't been able to get my kids on a good bite like I had experienced pre Katrina and want to get them to....  Read More

Boats in Louisiana
I am considering a 2002 Pathfinder 2400v with a Yamaha 200 2 stroke or a 2003 Bay Stealth 2430 with a Yamaha 225 4 stroke. I plan on using the boat in the marsh and for going out in the bays. I don't plan on using it off shore. Any advice on the models? Pros/Cons? Thanks friends!

Inshore Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Good morning,

I know people are wary of sharing their fishing locations but I'm going to give it a shot and ask anyway.

Is there anywhere that someone could recommend to me to fish from the bank for red fish, or other fish species. I do not have access to a boat so fishing from the bank is my only option.

Thank you,

Need some friendly advice for fishing the Grand Isle area the weekend of the 27th! Not sure if I will be boating from Lafitte or making the haul to Grand Isle, but I will possibly be having a new friend driving in from Monroe to make a fishing trip. I would like to show him a good ole southern boy good time on the coast. What are my best options to put some decent fish into the boat??? Probably....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Vermilion Bay in South Central Louisiana
I have a trip to Sypremort Point in 2 weeks. I know that Vermillion Bay has fresh water this time of year, but has anyone caught trout outside of Marsh Island lately? This would be the first time fishing outside the island for me and my son. Any advice on fishing this area would be greatly appreciated.

Low low tides have been keeping our boats very
busy. Tides are even lower now than they have
been all winter. Be careful navigating traditionally
shallow areas as the depth is probably 2 feet
less than normal lows in many cases. 4th of july
weekend is approaching and we will have all of
our assets dedicated to members only due to the
traditional high call volume on....  Read More

My good friends, David and Kelly Simoneaux and their family, were on vacation last week in Lake Tahoe. They did some fishing for lake trout and caught enough for a nice supper. They were fishing with artificial bait, 160 deep in the crystal clear icy cold water.
