Fishing in Louisiana
Its a sad day in Louisiana as I write this. Beloved Lake Ponchartrain that I've grown up on and spent quite a bit of my life is dying so fast its unbelievable. My second favorite area that I've fished, crabbed and trawled for the past 30 years (Bayou Bienvenue)is dying just as fast if not faster than Lake Ponchartrain. U just can't shut water flow off to a tidal area and expect it to.... Read More

Hey Folks,

My family have been lucky enough to get stationed in NO for the next few years (a welcome change after several tours overseas). We are trying to determine where to live. I am from Florida and love to fish inshore, I have a small bay boat that I plan to put to work in Louisiana. I will be working out of the Corps of Engineers Office, which is pretty much downtown.

Inshore Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Had pretty good morning fishing yesterday. Plenty of Reds and a few specks... But question is this... Being I am a sport fisher I am required to have all safety gear on board including running lights. Are commercial fishermen exempt from having required running lights??? I met up with an oyster boat yesterday morning which never slowed and was running in the dark without a light what so ever! .... Read More

Scott Deshotel with Vesco Rental and Billy Broussard were back on the Big Bluewave today. Trout is what the guys wanted and trout is what they got!! We picked away at the fish at our first couple spots. Our third stop is where we found the motherload!! The trout were Stacked and hungry for our double rigged avocado Matrix and purple Haze Vortex Shad. We had the fish coming in 3-6 at a time.... Read More

  • BULL!!
After several attempts me and a buddy FINALLY found a place with frogs. Unfortunately we need to refine our techniques but we did manage 25 of the 100 or so frogs we saw. Yea I know pretty bad average but I havent done this since I was a kid and we're still relearning.

Question tho. What's the easiest way to tell a pig from a bull? I've looked online but can't find much or a pic of.... Read More

I have a 3 bank on board charger on my boat. If I only hook up 2 batteries to it what should I do with the third set of wires? Should I just leave them unhooked or can I double up on one of the batteries? Thanks for any help.

  • This is the BP Gafftop.
We were catching some nice speckled trout and some huge reds this past saturday around noon and pulled up this guy, we didn't keep it only because we shocked by it and just instinctively threw it back. However, i did snap some pictures of it. Is this just a channel cat with some messed up genetics or is this a fish of different kind?

Kayak Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
I'm headed to grand isle in a week and bringing the yak down for the first time. I've been fishing there for several years but not in a yak. I'd like to go out with someone who is familiar with area and wouldn't mind sharing a few pointers. Let me know if interested.

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Calcasieu Lake in Southwest Louisiana
Capt Paul,

I just bought your edge file for big lake. I keep my boat an hour away at a marina. I want to come prepared with exactly what I need to install the edge file.

Do you suggest a data card or is it possible to hook my garmin up to my computer?

Thanks for the help!

I am just curious to see whether or not there are other people that refuse to purchase ethanol gas. If you respond below just state whether you only buy conventional or ethanol. Thanks.

Fished last Saturday with my buddy Wayne and my daughter. Got into some schooling Bull Reds under the birds in Black Bay. Had a great time catching. All were released so that they can spawn and maintain the fishery.
