The last two days I had Mr. Billy Carter in town. He wanted one day of trout fishing and one day of redfishing. On Tuesday (5-3-16) we waited for the weather window that was to be mid day and headed out of Tradewinds Marina with live shrimp. It was still a bit rough on the way out and I was planning on fishing Timbalier island. When we arrived at the island the water was so dirty I knew it would....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
Today was a decent day down at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. The winds were a little brisk in the morning which made the fishing a little tough, but a few of our regulars did pretty well with Trout. Toward the afternoon things picked a good bit and a couple of the hot areas were Four Horse Lake and Little Lake. Tomorrow and into the weekend the winds should be laying down setting us....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I am making yet another trip down to cocodrie this weekend and I have a question for all you out there that know the area. I have fished the bay many of times and I guess you could say I do OK but no limits,not even close. I'm wondering what area the trout are in. Normally my first stop is the suffer mines then the islands just south of the mines. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance.

Are the Ostrica canal locks open? Does anyone have a phone # for them? How about the canal 1/4 mile past the locks? Is it blocked, or can you get a boat through it?

Otis Taylor and gang were back in DU after numerous reschedules. Winds were high but the guys wanted to go. High winds made for a bunny ride out but the Bluewave took it like a champ. We started our morning of looking for trout. We hit a few flocks of birds and a couple points catching a bunch of throwbacks with a some keepers mixed in. We kept at if for a while before the wind got too much to....  Read More

Has anyone ever seen any seahorses in Grandisle waters. My family was fishing this past weekend and when my grandson and I pulled up one of our crab nets there was a seahorse in it. I couldn't believe it as I have never seen or heard of this in that area. Anyone have any info on this?

Inshore Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Wanting to go try fishing the Highway 11 Bridge and Train Trestles for the first time, have fished east of The Rigolets but never west. My question is where is the best place to cross under the twin spans and highway 11 bridge, is the high rise about a mile and half from the northshore the best place or can you just about cross under anywhere. For example if you cross the Interstate 10 bridge....  Read More

I personally have never heard of the Lake and did some online research and still know very little.

Just a quick report from a short afternoon trip yesterday. We put 100 trout and 2 reds in the box very quickly. Left the dock just after 1 and returned just before 5. Live shrimp did most of the damage with the Berkley rattle shrimp getting its work out also. I fished a totally new spot this day and found lots of hungry trout. Again 3 feet over shells with a falling tide. For your day contact....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
All we can say is the fishing is just great down here at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. Capt. Jack's good friend Scott went out today with his father in law to break in their brand new motor and killed 'em. They caught 50 beautiful Trout in the 14 - 16 inch range. And guess what?? The didn't catch them on live shrimp. All were caught on plastic (but we will have live shrimp....  Read More

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Captain Paul,
I am looking for a reccomendation for a handheld GPS to use for coastal fishing below Houma. I am a first time user, and normally fish Last Island Area, The Pickett's, etc. I need a model that accepts your waypoints, and is easy to use, dependable, and my budget is $250-$500. I also have minimal opportunity to use it for hiking on a couple of camping trips each year. Feel....  Read More

Hand Held GPS units
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~Dugout ~

I would look at the Garmin and the DeLorme line of hand held GPS units. DeLorme has several that should meet your needs as does Garmin.

The DeLorme Earthmate PN will suit your needs. http://www.delorme.com/default.aspx/ I particularly like the Garmin GPS Map 64t for a thumb action control or their Oregon(t) or Montana(t) for a touch screen operation.(https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/cIntoSports-c10341-p1.html)

The “t” in the Garmin model designation indicates that it comes preloaded with USGS type Topographical maps of the U.S. in a 1:100,000 scale, but you can purchase maps via regions in 1:24,000 scale, as well as their Blue Chart NOAA series for offshore needs.

Either of these brands will suit your needs. I suggest that you also consider the 12 volt remote power cables as an accessory and for the marine use their vehicle mount system. I have the base of their mount mounted in my truck as well as my boat. By using the mount and the cigarette plug type power cable, I and extend the operation to time of my unit much longer.

This combo has served me well for marine and on the ground hunting situations.

Please get back with me on your final selection.

Captain Paul

April 27, three-year old, 39-inch tall Andrew Angelette caught this nice sized perch (sacalait) on his Shakespeare 'Cars' light tackle in an Oak Alley subdivision pond near Geismar, La. He caught the monster on a ball of wheat bread while eating the rest of the slice. Andrew is the son of Drew and Kristine Angelette.

Yesterday 4-27-16 my dad and I were scouting for a tournament this coming Saturday. Our last stop of the day was some canals on Bateman Island. On our way out we were leaving a canal and getting back into the atchafalya river. At the mouth of the canal where it meets the river we hit what we thought was either a small log or even a gar fish. It didn't feel like much but when we put the boat on....  Read More
