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

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
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.

Hunting in Central Louisiana
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

Hog Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
Why is there a problem with too many hogs in spite of more lenient seasons an choice of weapons? Wildlife requires three things: food, cover, and water. In our coastal marshes we have an abundance of all three. What has changed is more cover because of the lack of storm tides that kill a lot of the ground cover, especially the wild pea vines (deer pea) that forms a blanket over the marsh which.... 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

Deer Hunting in Outside Louisiana
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

  • Purple Haze Vortex Shad is bad to the bone
It was good having Kenny Siears back onboard today. Kade Siears and David Stafford also joined us. We found the reds stacked up at our first stop. We had multiple double hook ups. Once our limit was iced down in the K2, the guys played catch and release. We headed South after the guys had enough to go look for trout. The trout did not cooperate like the reds did, but we managed to pick away at.... Read More
