Deer Hunting in Northwest Louisiana
Going to switch from corn to soybeans for the feeders this year. I live in Lafayette and hunt in Desoto Parish. Does anyone know where I can get soybeans between Lafayette and Mansfield?

Freshwater Fishing in Central Louisiana
I just moved back to the state and haven't been to Old River in years. I want to make a sac-a-lait trip sometime this week and plan to launch at Old River landing. Really don't have a clue as to where to begin. From the landing, which direction should I go, left/right, straight across, etc?

Thanks in advance.

  • I can't feel my arms!!!!
Saturday around 2pm Jeremy hooked into this Jack Cravelle (Sawmill Pass at the mouth of Lake Catherine). Had to pull up the anchor quick and the chase was on. 45 minutes and about a half mile later we got this sucker in the boat. I have never seen a fish fight like this in my life, it would not give up!

This is first Jack I've actually seen in this area but I've been spooled before....  Read More

Deer Hunting in Louisiana

I just started running my feeder and raccoons have taken over. I understand that there are many pictures of deer and raccoons at feeders at the same time but I think I may have a problem. With this large group at my feeder 24/7 I fear I may not see many deer. What are the limits/laws around hunting raccoons? What should I do here?

My goal today was quality over quantity. It ended up being both!! My 12yo and his buddy wanted to get on a bull Red. With the water like a bathtub in black bay, the stars aligned and we put several big boys in the boat. We also caught a black drum that weighed almost 40lb. My son and his friends dad caught most of them. We are going out tomorrow to see if we can't put his buddy on one.

Good news from Sweetwater Marina today. Lots of fish caught are being caught, Specs and Reds. The fish cleaning tables have been busy all day and they are still coming in with loads of fish. Specs are being caught in Black Bay and Reds in duck ponds scattered throughout the interior of Delacroix. There is very little wind and it's blowing out of the east and the water is beautiful making....  Read More

Hunters beware of Pat Heughan of Kimpatadv.com. This guy is a crook and a compulsive lier. He will tell you anything to get your money. He trys leasing out hunting land and tells you all these great things about the property and they all turn out to be lies. I would suggest to not give these people any money for any kind of hunts or leases cause he will screw you. The dude is a joke

I once had found the La gov tresspass laws that reflected a revision of law.The revision was that no longer were 'posted signs' required on privately owned property.

I have in hand the LA Criminal Trespass law RS 14:63. But it is the revised version. I am looking for the original version that had parts of the revised verbage lined out, showing the 'required signs' verbage struck....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Venice in Southeast Louisiana
Whats the rules on hunting state claimed water bottoms? I'm not talking about hunting marsh with a 'posted' or 'no trespassing' sign on it because I know better then that. I know where the state claimed water bottoms are, I just wanna know what the rules and limitations are hunting on it. Hunting a certain distance from leased land, shipping channels, etc...
Thanks in advance!

Hunting in Louisiana
Finding hunting camp is something that I never thought I would lose. I remember as a child going to the family hunting camp. Friends of the family and extended family all getting together hunting, eating, and having a great time. After 20 years of this you really expect and look forward to hunting camp. THEN TRAGEDY! Grandfather dies, property split up. Then another tragedy, my mother dies.....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Overall the fishing was decent today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Most folks came in with 15 - 20 Trout, but a few anglers who headed outside to the Compressor Rig caught limits. Hopefully for tomorrow the wind will be a little lighter and the fishing should be great. Capt. Jack has a fishing tip for those of you who fish on the Northshore, try out the Pelican Point Marina. ....  Read More

Freshwater Fishing in Red River North in Northwest Louisiana
I have some small reinforced wire nets that came from the fish net company in Jonesville, LA. I have fished with them in the past and had some luck catching the small good eating catfish but it always seemed to be hit and miss. I am fishing on the Red River just south of Shreveport, LA. Any advice on how to set these nets up (where, what depth, best bait, do they need to be weighted, etc.) would....  Read More

How far out do you have to go from Cameron to find mangrove's? Any ideas? Does the water depth matter or is it clarity?

Just curious... Any help would be appreciated.

The trout are still biting at the usual summertime hot spots. I took Todd Bergeron and his family and we found hungry trout smashing both live bait and soft plastics. After catching over 100 in one stop he wanted his daughter to hook in to a big red. We made one move and immadiately hooked up and boated two nice Bulls. Then the trout invaded our bull red hole. We caught another 15 beautiful....  Read More
