Well I wanted to post my thoughts,opinions, and results for my hunting experience with the late season we had this year. We always have a pretty decent first week of the season. I was very excited to say the least about the decision to move the frame work of the coastal zone season back one week. As my lease is in the marsh less than 2 miles from the coast in a fresh water impoundment we always....
LATER, SEASON PAYS OFF Now what we need too make it a little better is to have a 2 week end close for the 2 slit , that would give us a great 2 opening and then get WLF to get the feds to give us a day or 2 in FEB. so we could hunt the hole month of JAN. All in all had a great season in the deep south.
I hunt in Evangeline Parish/'coastal zone'.
First split: we had no ducks
Second split: it was slim to none until new years, when ducks started showing up. We began shooting teal, then teal and mallards. As the season closed, pintails mixed in with them. Having the extra week really help put birds in the freezer as the last week was the best. Unfortunately my....
I launched at Sweetwater this morning around 9. I trolling motor/paddled down to Little Lake and Alligator Pass. There were tons of boats anchored out in the middle of Little Lake.
I joined them and caught 1 trout. Not to many people seemed to be catching. I think I only saw 5-6 trout boated out of the 20+ boats during the 30 minutes I anchored there. The wind and waves were a bit much....
looking for a safe route to orange bayou in delacroix. looks like i can go through bayou gentily to grand lake and hop right into orange bayou. i have never run that area before i have typically only fished four horse area in the past. are there obstructions or really shallow areas i need to watch out for. thanks for any help.
The last two days were filled with red hot fishing with red hot guides. Don Somme' put a fishing group together for PSC and it was a great group of great fishermen. I don't think anyone had a hard time catching fish. The first day was cold but the reds were on the flats catching any sunlight they could to warm up. They also wanted to feed and we gave them something to eat. High Life Tackle....
Nailed this big 10 point January 23rd in the basin with my bow, during gun season, public land. Don't get any better. 17 yards broad side muzzy mx3 lung shot, ran about 80 yards. 180 pound 10 point. 7:05 in the morning, raining and cold.
Sad to see the season come to an end. It was a banner year for us with duck numbers.
Ended the year with 481 ducks on 35 hunts. Had a great mixture, killing 13 different species of ducks. By far, ringnecks were our most prominent bird. The season started great and never slowed down! The later start and finish for the season worked out great for us! Averaged 5.82 ducks per hunter, per hunt,....
Day 2 with the PSC/Valero crew was pretty much a repeat of Day 1; however, the fish would only eat in spurts. We found the reds just where we left them yesterday, but they were holding in the deeper water. Our swim baits went to work early on as we put 16 fish in the box before the bite came to a screeching halt. Sweating it out in hopes that they would bite just long enough to catch our last....
Day 1 with the PSC/Valero group started off a bit cold, but the fishing was as hot as it gets! With the ambient temperature sitting at 37, water temperature in the low 50's, and a stiff wind added to the mix, we decided to stay protected and fish for reds. It sure paid off in huge dividends. Our group of four boats had our limit of 70 reds iced up before 9am, and left the fish biting. The reds....

Thinking about going to try and launch at Campo's in Shell Beach this Saturday. I don't really know area at all but am looking forward to learning it. I have heard good reports from the Great Wall. Is this an easy trip from Campo's? Is so can anyone give me pointers on finding it, and/or any other productive spots around the area. Thank you in advance.
I know this is a shot in the dark, but I lost my duck call lanyard somewhere along Hooper Road in Richard Yancey WMA. It had 5 calls and 1 band. It's a custom lanyard with orange around the neck part. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
