Kayak Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
Fished about 1 mile east of the entrance and 1 mile west of the entrance. Lures and dead shrimp--not a bite!!! The water was very dirty. First time out there so I am not sure if that's normal. Nonetheless, got some excercise and it was nice and peaceful out there!

  • Unlucky red and trout that was not tagged and released.  Had a blasted fishing with Greg Hackney and
Filmed a Tag n Release Louisiana Sportsman TV show with Greg Hackney in Lafitte. Four times we had (doubles)2 big reds on at the same time. Plus a few nice trout. Most caught on a Strike King Pure Poison white sight fishing. I can not wait to see the show.

Today was Captain Jack’s first day back on the water since his last charter (April 12). He jumped on the boat with Mr. Steve Best, Mr. Darryl Jans, and their buddy, Mr. Kenny Verzwyvelt. Today’s trip consisted of 56 trout and 10 reds. The biggest red landed was 33 pounds and the smallest weighing 21. They released another 100 trout measuring 11 ¾ inches long; some smaller. All fish were.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
Guys. Quick question. I would like to target some of the shallow ponds in Lafitte for red fish from now and into the summer. My question is this. Typically do you guys concentrate south of the Bayou Perot/Rigolets are can productive waters be located in and around the north central parts of Perot/Rigolets?

I have been doing really well soaking shrimp on the bottom near the jetties but.... Read More

Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
There are two drag lines making a canal in the Pen on the west side where it enters Bayou DuPont. They take dirt and put it in the Pen making a canal along the west bank with new rocks. My question is why not put this mud behind the rocks that they just put into place. Why put it out in the Pen. Now this is the kicker they did this over a year ago and came back and put this mud back in the canal.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
A friend and I are thinking about going to venice this Sunday. The tide looks great and weather does too accept that it suppose to be 12mph winds with 16mph gust. I haven't been there in over 10yrs and it's a 2hour ride. Does anybody think it will be a good day to catch fish. We will be in a 19ft bay boat if that helps any. Any good spots to try out would be helpful also. Thanks in advance

  • Oyster Stock Assessments
Oyster dredging was legalized in Big Lake in 2005 while CCA was too busy in bed with the LWF Commission working to get the restrictive speck limits passed. Here's a graph showing the LDWF Oyster Stock Assessments on the east side of Calcasieu Lake from 2004-2013. Note the near total destruction.

Oyster issues on the E side of the state are more complex with freshwater diversions and the.... Read More

The Speck and Redfish Cup is this saturday. The kayak tournament article from earlier this month listed incorrectly that it was on May 26. Join the fun. The more the better.

How to catch bull reds in the passes

Bull reds can be caught in the passes between Louisiana inshore waters and the Gulf of Mexico at any time of year either from a boat, from the jetties, or from bridges and piers. The keys are putting the right bait in the right spot on appropriate gear to land the fish. Bull reds are primarily bottom feeders, and they are more strongly dependent on.... Read More

  • Hot spots for Bill Reds at Cameron Jetties
We've been slaying the bull reds in the Cameron Jetties this past year, boating an average of 6 or so per trip, sometimes wearing everyone out. Cracked crab on a 7/0 Gamagatsu Octopus J hook is much more effective than cut mullet. Great times. I've attached a pic of our favorite spots.

1. Good spot when it is too rough outside, about 50 yards N of green channel marker right across.... Read More

  • Where are the minutes to the September 2013 LWF Commission meeting?
Since it has received minimal public notice, I will mention that CCA succeeded in getting their tripletail restrictions passed. In Louisiana, it is no longer legal to keep more than 5 tripletail or to keep individuals shorter than 18'. Both LDWF and CCA have been keeping this quiet, but the new regulation was published in the Louisiana Register in February, making it official and.... Read More

Hog Hunting in Louisiana
I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has.... Read More

Made a trip Tuesday night with a couple buddy's and the fish were stacked in the marsh. We shot 15 reds, a few drum, some sheephead and ended up shooting a 6 foot gar which I think almost caused more damage than what it's worth. We also seen a gar even bigger than the one we shot but didn't wanna risk tearing anything up.

  • The Good Catch
  • Her Frist Red
I had the pleasure of fishing with some returning customers from Cabelas in Gonzales and their 9 year old daughter. We had 2 boats out this day. Our day started out cold, wet, and windy, about 25 to 30 windy. The rain let up after a few hours and it warmed up a little thought out the day. We even got a little sun later in the day, but the wind never stopped. We still had a great day putting 14.... Read More
