  • My Favorite Sunrise of the season
  • 5 Redheads came in, 5 stayed for the trip home.
  • Fresh Grilled Duck Breast for Saturday Night Dinner.
Let me start by saying I understand the frustration that most are expressing about the season dates, I have mixed feelings myself. There will be time to continue to voice our opinions and I thank Larry R. for all the work he has done. (By the way Larry, I would love for you to join us on a hunt sometime). All I know is that at this point all we can do is start to get pumped up about our opening....  Read More

Had a great day on the water sight fishing, catching, tagging and releasing bull reds in lake Borgne. I was able to catch, tag and release 9 nice reds ranging from 13.5 lbs to 24 lbs. One had a smiley face mark on his tail. Was able to catch 3 in the 18 inch range for the ice chest. Had 5 other bulls hooked up but lost due to a dull hook. I also sighted over 30 others I didn't get a hook....  Read More

~ ~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Fox ~

The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) is a deepwater facility in the Gulf of Mexico near Port Fourchon, LA. It provides a DEEP WATER offloading and temporary storage services for raw petroleum products by deep water tankers. The anchor points AND the underwater pipelines that connect them together and to the shoreline are in a very restricted marine area. USE Caution whenever in the area.

There are NO specific markers that indicate the entire boundary for the LOUISIANA OFFSHORE OIL PORT, but that does not resolve you of any liability for being in the restricted area. These restrictions apply for the entire area, especially in the light of today’s terrorist activity. The restrictions are vigorously enforced.

The rough center of the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) is located about 27 miles at a bearing of 182° Magnetic from Barataria Pass by Grand Isle, LA. and about 19 miles at a bearing of 139° Magnetic from Belle Pass at the Gulf of Mexico by Port Fourchon.

It occupies about a twelve (12) mile east to west by six (6) mile north to south area that resembles an oval. The LOOP has a series of regulations that are listed in Chapter 2 of the U.S. Coast Pilot publication. Additional restrictions are published in the USCG official NOTICE TO MARINERS that is published weekly. I strongly suggest that you get up to date information, as world events have installed a strict enforcement of the regulations.

The LOOP is in part or all of the following GRAND ISLE LEASED BLOCK AREA’s: Blocks 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 63, 64, 65, 66 and 67.

The site of the LOOP is shown on NOAA Marine Chart # 11359 ~LOOP DEEPWATER PORT, Chart 11358 ~ Barataria Bay and Approaches, and on Chart # 1116A Leased Blocks Miss River to Galveston.

I strongly suggest that get a current copy of these charts BEFORE navigating to the area.

Some of the LOOP tie up ship markers located around the area are located at the following locations:


G -“1”, a Horn @ 28° 48.608’ N. Latitude ~ 89° 54.991’ W. Longitude

G - “3” @ 28° 50.141’ N. Latitude ~ 90° 02.404’ W. Longitude

R - “2” @ 28° 50.330’ N. Latitude ~ 89° 53.861’ W. Longitude

Y - “L-B” @ 28° 52.060’ N. Latitude ~ 89° 52.701’ W. Longitude

R - “4” @ 28° 54.861’ N. Latitude ~ 89° 57.001’ ~ ~ W. Longitude

Comparing these positions to the charts, you will note that these positions are NOT joined in straight lines between the buoys. These boundary lines and buoys, however, are indicated on the charts.

Again, be sure that you know the restrictions (and penalties) for the LOOP area before venturing close to the site.

Unless otherwise specified, all positions are stated as Degrees, minutes and thousandths of minutes (DDD,MM.mmm) and were determined using WGS 84 Datum. All bearings and courses are stated in Magnetic degrees.

We are looking to buy a floating house/fish camp. We are new at this and can't find any information on the net on what to do about maintenance on the steel pontoons underneath. What equipment is needed to pull it out of the water in order to paint and check the pontoons and how often is this needed? It is not motorized so it will be sitting in the water. It is an older houseboat with wood....  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.

I made it up to my hunting property this past Saturday in Catahoula Parish only to find that a bear had broken into my camper.

He then proceeded to open up the cabinets, turned on a light, opened the refrigerator, and flipped over some of the cushions and mattresses. He found 2-3....  Read More
