Inshore Fishing in Vermilion Bay in South Central Louisiana
I have a trip to Sypremort Point in 2 weeks. I know that Vermillion Bay has fresh water this time of year, but has anyone caught trout outside of Marsh Island lately? This would be the first time fishing outside the island for me and my son. Any advice on fishing this area would be greatly appreciated.

cant believe they let the lease go for Union wma! Killed my first deer there 10 years ago and my most recent last year there! Best chances at getting a deer on a wma in the state in my opinion always worth the drive from Gonzales! Anyone else going to miss Union ?

  • Hunter's of public lands should not be denied their Second Amendment rights!
It is truly another sad day for those that hunt public lands in Louisiana. Once again, the legislature, with the passage of SB 212 (2015), and the LDWF decision to not honor this new law for those that hunt public lands, has reaffirmed that there is a two tiered system of justice, or a double standard of rights and privileges, for hunters in the State of Louisiana.

Those that hunt on....  Read More

I have a Humminbird 1197C SI with the lake maps card. The map is a little limited. I am looking for SP 152 out of Fourchong. We used to fish it when I was a kid. Not sure if it still there. Is there a book with all the passes and rig numbers for purchase?
Thanks

Offshore Platforms
~ Captain Paul's response to: Foxholel 123 ~

I am not quite sure that I know where you are looking as SP 152 is in the Southern area of Brenton Sound and not near the Fourchon area.

Mike Lane of RodnReel at one time had a book that covered some of the Offshore Rigs and reefs, but I don’t know if it is still in print.

However, I suggest that you start by getting at least two general NOAA charts of the local offshore areas.

Chart 1116A and 1115A covers the Offshore Leased Blocks from Cape St. George FL to Galveston TX. These charts show the areas and the blocks in those areas. This is a starting point.

Next, the U.S. government’s agency that has all of the current and past information is the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) has a data search web site.

This site allows the user to search the leased Blocks in the offshore areas.

Try them at:

http://www.data.bsee.gov/homepg/data_center/platform/platform/master.asp

By using the two together, you can pinpoint a block and the platforms in that block.

You may need a more detailed chart once you find your area of interest as the aforementioned are charts that cover a lot of area and do not have a lot of shore details.

This should get interesting

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - Bow-hunters can now carry guns of all sizes in Louisiana after Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a new bill into law Monday.

Sen. Rick Ward, R-Port Allen, introduced Senate Bill 212, which removes a restriction on guns for bow-hunters.

Previously, they could only carry guns no larger than a .22 caliber pistol with ammunition....  Read More

Unfortunately I purchased the Tundra series thinking colder would be better. This product is made to keep frozen food frozen. I have a chest freezer with a quick freeze mode which runs the compressor 24 hours to drop the temperature. It still takes at least 5 days for it to freeze totally laying on the bottom of the freezer. If on top it won't freeze. This freezer will freeze a 4 gallon bucket....  Read More

I love that this article supports the strenuous efforts of our wildlife agents. They absolutely provide us with incredible opportunities to hunt and fish safely in the best state to do such in the entire United States. This article does, though, overgeneralize a few factors taking away from its accuracy. Yes, game wardens have been known to tow in a boat or even help drag a deer out of the woods....  Read More

Want to pass on an experience I had with our Wildlife and Fisheries agency today. On June 4th, I went to the Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries website, just like I've done for so many years, to renew my hunting and fishing licenses. I've always felt that the $2.50 service charge fee for them sending your license and tags to you in the mail was more than worth the small charge. This year, my....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Shell Beach / Hopedale / Reggio in Southeast Louisiana
Is it just me or is Black Bay not holding the trout right now. I saw a gar at Lonesome Island so I'm thinking the fresh water has got the trout on the run. I'm just getting back to fishing the Hopedale area and could use some good tips on where I could go to find some trout. I haven't been able to get my kids on a good bite like I had experienced pre Katrina and want to get them to....  Read More

I started out the day using live shrimp and caught about 12 trout. I found that my live well bubbler had quit working and as a result about 20 of my live shrimp died. I switched from live bait #2 Gomakatsu hooks to #3 Eagle claw kahle hooks to hook the dead shrimp a little better. The after effect was good but, the shrimp were weak and didnt stay on the hook very good.. Some trout were getting....  Read More

I am currently running an airboat that I use to run down shooting lanes at my lease in the marsh. The only downside is, that I can only run it a couple of months out of the year and definitely not during hunting season. So I am looking at possibly getting an Argo to take the place of my airboat and something that I could run year round. My question is, how good do these things perform in the....  Read More

Not to mention the rip lately looks as if Guy Harvey painted it! Red snappers are close to 20lb limits, mangroves are huge and are usually no problem limits! Along with some delicious groupers, and any other reef species! Lately it has been....  Read More
