Fishing in Louisiana
We announced the start of a Petition on July 9th to URGE Chalmette Refining to resume the manufacture and sale of ethanol FREE gasoline from their refinery’s truck rack in Chalmette.

Over the first week, we were having an average of 100+ signatures per day sign up. At that rate, I felt we would have well over 1,000 by now. It is now 13 days since we launched the petition and we have.... Read More

Hey yall,

Looking to switch rounds for my winchester model 70 .270. I had been shooting 150gr ballistic tips and found that I was NEVER getting a blood trail; resorted to shoulder shots which equaled wasted meat. I have begun researching and know that I want to drop down to 130gr. I don't expect to have to make shots past 250-300 yds.

I'm looking at Accubonds, Interbonds, or.... Read More

I am coming fishing late September, which is a better fishing spot. We are going on a bachelor party, so we would like to fish in the evening and then eat/drink at a cool spot on the water. Would Lafitte or Delacroix be a better spot?

Kayak Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
Second trip to PAC. Fished the southern section off of Island Rd. Last time I was down there I checked that area out and they were 3 guys that killed the reds. So I went there today. Got a late start but first cast fish on! That's how it was for about 30 mins with h&h plastic. Every other cast fish on- but all small trouts and reds. And then nothing but harheads on dead shrimp. I can't.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Louisiana
I am coming to New Orleans with a group of six guys total. We want to do a fishing trip that is close to New Orleans where we can drink beer and catch fish. We want to do a semi short trip due to limited time in NOLA. Would be open to charters, guided trips, big flat bottom boats. We are open to late morning, afternoon, or evening trip.

Also, we are all from Texas so need info on one day.... Read More

I recently read an article (sorry can't remember where) and it was talking about how next year you may not be able to fish for red snapper in federal waters unless you have a commercial liscense or hire someone to take you? I may not have read it and understood it fully. Can anyone give me any information on this or explain what that means? Thank you.

Good day down in Dularge working the duck ponds! Pink Champagne matrix with a 1.5 gold spinner did the damage today. Always great when kids can go out and catch fish. Thanks to my friend Travis at reeling good charters for putting me on the fish!! If we would have had live minnows it would have been 15 reds in the box. Nevertheless it was a fun day!!

  • The fish that yanked Matt overboard!
  • 'This ones going on the wall' his grandpa said!
While running a charter yesterday Matt hooked into a monster Bull Red. After 20 mins I tightened the drag a little bit. The fish ran under the boat then shot out yanking Matt right off the bow of the boat. Luckily he did not let go of rod. We got him back in, he immediately grabbed the rod and 15 mins later the monster was in the boat. This was his biggest fish ever!! Congrats Mathew on getting.... Read More

I just wanted to pass this along in case someone's looking for ammunition. I've searched for months to find a couple boxes of 22 magnum with no luck. Hard to believe a few short years ago I could walk into Walmart and the Winchester boxes where stacked three wide and ten deep with them for around $11.00 a box of 50. I found a place on the internet and they had the Armscor 22 magnum in 40 grain.... Read More

I'm replacing an old rotten transom in a small 12 foot bateau. I'm just curious as to who has done this before and what tips you can give me. What type of wood? Did you treat it with anything special? I figure someone out there has some really good homemade ideas. Thanks in advance.

Captain Paul - GPS Info in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
A friend of mine e-mailed me some of his way points and I opened them via Garmin's 'home port'software program on my apple pc.

I have a lowrance Elite-7 HDI chartplotter with a Standard Mapping chip. If I copy the way points to a blank micro sd card, will my Lowrance read them or will the code only be read by a Garmin GPS? Is there a way I can transfer the data without manually.... Read More

Phillip and I decided to make an inshore/offshore trip to GI on 7/21. Started off on the beaches which were covered in shrimp/birds/11' trout. Birds were diving as far we could see. Decided to make a move once the rains past and hit paydirt. Got our limit of very very solid trout. All trout were caught on live croakers about 3' under a cork. Went back to sand dollar for some frozen poiges and.... Read More
