Date hunted 11/22/14:

If you listened to the weather forecasters for the weekend and stayed home it was a mistake. Tides were slightly above normal for the weekend with wind conditions favorable. We dealt with the rain getting out later than normal today but the most important thing is the ducks don't watch the weather on the evening news. We had a good crew go out Saturday and we all....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
Fellow Sportsman:

The family and I are headed to Grand Isle this weekend for some fishing and relaxation and I was hoping someone can offer some tips for fishing there. I have only been once and the fishing wasn't great but that is largely in part to me not knowing what to do. We are bringing shrimp and some plastics to try. I'm not looking for spots to fish (unless you want to offer....  Read More

  • stuffed to the gills
We caught some reds under the birds last week which were literally 'stuffed to the gills' with shrimp. Counted 21 shrimp and 1 croaker in the belly of a 20' red!
Redfish with shrimp étouffée on top!

Just a tidbit of info for those using the belle chasse ferry. the big ferry is in for repairs for about 8 months(according to the operator friday). they are running a smaller ferry now and it may transport 1-2 boat at a time. Report: took a short trip Fri afternoon and found some specks in wreck bay. Too windy to fish anywhere else. And Errol if u read this give me a call, I lost your contact....  Read More

Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
This was in the the BR Paper and is a great idea but why so long/ Wish they would do this in Lafitte area where we have miles and miles of rock walls.At the same time, the state is nearing completion of a $3.4 million project to restore the marsh behind the rock wall. Sediment is dredged from the bayou and pumped over the rock and into the marsh area. PS I posted this idea after the first wall....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
I was wondering if the shooting hours that LADWF puts in the waterfowl pamphlets applies to us that hunt private leased property? I have been making evening hunts in delacroix and the birds are everywhere right when it begins to get dark which is right outside of what would be 'shooting hours'.

  • This IS the “TREE of LIFE” in HOPEDALE. Louisiana
I have fished out of Hopedale, Louisiana, for many, many years. This is a SE Louisiana village of fisherman and sports anglers since its inception. What you see here in these pictures is a striking view of a lone tree in an endless field of marsh grass and water—standing out like an announcement of survival to all its viewers for endless miles around. I can’t tell you how long it has stood here.....  Read More

DO NOT lease or do any business with Pat Hueghan! He will lie to you about his lease. Tell you there are only so many members and will keep adding until he ant add anymore. He says they don't run dogs but they do and they don't follow rules he tells you to follow. He will book paid hunts on your supposed to be 'lease.' I was a victim of his scam last year and I am trying to save all your....  Read More

  • Paw-Paw, Brother Errol and Pierce with some of the day's bag.
  • Steel and I returning from rounding up some ducks.
  • 'Steel', my new puppy trained by B-Young Retrievers, and some of his first retrieves of the day.
I did not have a guided trip today so I jumped at the chance to hunt with my dad, brother and nephew. We waited for the rain to let up some and were set up for 10:00. We battled the wind and tough shooting conditions and finished our 24 duck limit a little after 1:00. Mostly greys with a drake pintail, a widgeon, and 2 mottled ducks throw in. Some advise on these hard wind days is to put the....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Louisiana
I've been researching on Google Maps and the best launch site I can figure for this area is Eddie Pinto's Bait Shop just south of the ICW bridge on Paris Road. It looks like a paddle of a little less than two miles.

Or is there a closer spot to put in?

It looks like easy fishing when it's cold: http://www.nola.com/outdoors/index.ssf/2014/11/early_winter_drives_easy_speck.html

Boats in Central Louisiana
So while I was coming in from duck hunting this morning the motor stopped peeing. I shut it down and paddled to shore. I ran a wire through the outlet line and intake holes on the bottom are clear. It'll spit a little bit of water but not a steady stream. Is the water pump going bad or is there anything else that would cause this to happen? Thanks in advance for the advice!

  • Mallards of the Northern variety

  • Lots of birds.
This season has started off really good for us. Opening day last weekend we hit a spot where the Mallards wanted to be and finished with 11. I can't recall killing so Many Mallards in the marsh on opener. That really was a special hunt.

This past Friday I got an invite to Port Acres, TX for a marsh hunt and from the moment we started pushpoling the marsh you could hear the....  Read More

Hi,

I hunt the marshes for duck season and I fish the Atchafalaya Basin year round, and I want to start duck hunting the basin as well. Can anyone share a little advice on how to scout the basin timber areas for ducks. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

This hunt started very slow , east wind and clear . Starting at about 8:30 am we had lots of Geese moving about and into the spread at a low decent . But the sun shining on the large decoy spread and the Geese coming from the west , it seemed like at the last minute they would see our spread shining and flare off .... We ended up with 8 specks and 1 snow . Not bad for bad conditions .

This morning started slow East wind with clouds . Our large spread should not reflect the sun today . At about 7:30 the geese started moving around and into our spread . We were able to get them fairly close today . We ended the hunt at around 8:30 with 14 specks our limit . The shooting was very good , with close birds .
