Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
We plan on going out to Last Island this weekend. What's some opinions on taking the grandkids ,ages 3 and 6 out this far. We will be launching at a camp in the Cocodrie area in a 22' bayboat. I think its too long of a ride for the little ones. Any thoughts?

I was curious if anyone knows why this happens. all catches go in the same ice chest, so its not like some get hot and some don't. One of the pics is of sacalait. both fish caught same day same place. Same goes for the pic of frogs, what yall think

  • Young blacktip. Stump Lagoon. Rigolets. Aug. 20, 2014.
Small black tip shark maybe 3 feet long caught in Stump Lagoon in the Rigolets on dead shrimp bottom fishing. This on the heels of what had to be a much, much larger shark yesterday 100 yards or so yards from the HWY 90 bridge. It ran out 200 yards of 80 lb. test braided line super fast before snapping it. Can't confirm that one was a shark, but my gut intuition is leaning that way judging by.... Read More

Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
The Ride the Bull 5 Kayak Fishing Tournament set another world record on Saturday.

Crushing last year's record setting participation of 488, this year's crowd was 722. That makes RTB the World's Largest Kayak Fishing Tournament for two years in a row. The closest tournament in size is still several hundred short so the record should stand for a long time.

Any doubts that kayak.... Read More

Hog Hunting in Louisiana
Before reading the following comment, please search & read Hogs in river in China. It is my opinion that Aerial hog hunting should be classified a violation of the Clean Water Act, because of the rotting carcasses left to contaminate the states water supply. Yes, the water which we bathe in, cook with and drink,etc. Dept.of Health & Human Resources should have in-volvement in such a.... Read More

I would like opinions on a good asking price for my boat. It's a 17'6 predator bass boat, with a 150 mercury black max xr4. I just put all new carpet in it, a brand new trolling motor , 3 brand new batteries, brand new livewell pump, it has a hot foot, plenty of storage, good trailer, papers on boat only, a laser 2 prop on it. This boat has great hole shot and jumps out the water. The only bad.... Read More

  • Dolphin at the rip
We decided to do a last minute trip to go offshore to try to catch some tuna. We had never been tuna fishing before, but we decided to give it a try. We went out to Medusa 65 miles out and quickly hooked up on a nice fish after 2 minutes of chumming. Our drags were set too low, and the first two fish took an hour to land each. After adjusting our reels, we caught three more tuna, and filled our.... Read More

Would anyone happen to know what organization/group had a bunch of bass boats launching out of Myette Point on Aug 13 at around 4pm?

Reason I'm asking, one of the boats (possibly associated with that group) buzzed by my father and mother in law (who are in their late 60's)so fast that they were both knocked over and fell inside their boat. They were preparing to pack it up and move.... Read More

I have an old reel that is what I call free spool/direct drive. It is silver with century on the side with the handle. Stamped on the bottom of the foot is 100. Does anyone know who the manufacture is. Johnson made a green spin cast, but I could not find this one.

Thanks for any help

  • They loaded the boat!
David and Darlene Landry joined me on the Bluewave today. We found a slow bite at our first stop. We picked away at the fish as they came in spurts. Our second stop found the fish stacked as we had them coming in every cast. We filled the K2 to the top as we could hardly close the lid. My crew had the time of their life reeling in all of the reds and puppy drum. They will have sore arms.... Read More

Looking into hunting this area during duck season. Can the area be accessible by outboard motor or is a mud motor suggested? Thanks.
