Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Looking for pics & ideas for cypress brake / swamp duck blinds, making blinds that look like cypress stumps, etc...

Please send any pics you may have of your or other persons cypress swamp blinds.

I am considering using large plastic drainage culverts ~5-ft high & covering them with cypress drift wood, small cypress logs, etc...

Any ideas or pics welcomed.

Turkey Hunting in Outside Louisiana

  • First afternoon gobblers
  • 3 Gobblers
  • 4 Beards
Made my first spring turkey hunting trip for this year down to my friends ranch in south Texas and had a blast. Arriving just in time to make an evening hunt on April 1st I set out my gobbler and hen decoy and settled in for a long afternoon of calling. Within 15 minutes a hen showed up followed by two long beards. The hen was nervous and the gobblers were just out of range so I had to let her....  Read More

The Bluewave was back in action today. Michael Romaguera and his dad Michael were on board. The weather threw us a curveball this morning with the strong NW winds. We decided to stick with the trout plan and to my surprise when we first pulled up to the reef the water was dirty but we caught a few trout. The bite was slow with the poor conditions but I wasn't moving as long as we were catching....  Read More

Greg Laurent and Carl Fife joined me for a trout slam today on the Bluewave. Grim conditions early, then the Silver Surprise busted loose!! We found the trout stacked thick and feeding heavy. We put the Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad to work, and the specks could not resist them. 3-4 ft depths over oyster reefs has been working well with a slow retrieve. The trout have shown up in full....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
Scouted Hopedale Saturday afternoon for 3 hours. Stayed very close with rain in the area for a mixed catch of trout, reds, a sheephead, and a bass.. First bass in that area for me. Lost some reds, must be rusty. BSM now has live shrimp and that's what the trout wanted

Also, another fixture is gone. The refinery near Shell Beach is being dismantled. It will be strange not seeing it....  Read More

There was no canceling this trip. This group was determined to make this trip no matter what. We waited for the storms to subside and then headed out. We found lots of big gar and reds and managed to put an arrow in a few. Captain Olden 985-856-6494.

Boats in Louisiana
I have a 1648 alumacraft john boat that I am rigging as a duck/fishing boat. The transom has been reinforced with stainless tube struts. Transom wood is being replaced. Not having any experience with a SD type motor, I am curious as to what HP I should be looking for to get the best performance from this rig. I'm not a speed merchant, but do want to be able to run the river and backwaters so it....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Sorry to post a forum type question, but looking for help with teleflex steering. For the last year I have had to purge my system numerous times and able to get good tightness, but the next day or two it loosens up again to where you have to turn the wheel quickly to get a turn. If you turn slowly it does not move the engine. I changed the seals on the ram even though I did not think this was....  Read More

We were at it again this morning. I helped Capt. Marty out with his Inolect crew. We got a late start waiting for the wind to calm a little because of the passing storms. Lonnie, Jamie, Hue, and Mike jumped on the Bluewave and we were off. The first hour or two it wasn't looking good but when the winds calmed down the trout bite turned on even tho the water wasn't the prettiest. We fished a....  Read More

  • Customers Bail on Photo Op
This morning looked like a weather cancellation so my customers were on standby at their camp. We slept in til about 8:00 am, checked the radar, and set all systems on go. The wind was cranking hard out of the north making much of lower Dularge seemingly unfishable. We armed ourselves with bait crabs in case we had to get down and dirty with some bull reds, but the plan was speckled trout as the....  Read More
