After a limit of bull reds on crab, we were soaking mullet hoping to put more gafftops in the box when this guy showed up and gave us some excitement.

My first Crevalle Jack, 22 lbs, 41 inches long. We filleted him, and his meat was really very good, somewhere between redfish and tuna: great on the grill.

The Chandeluer Islands are still producing nice sized trout and redfish using top water baits, and tight line plastic jigs. The thrill of a crashing 25' speck on a top water bait, is one of the ultimate angling scenario's available to South Louisiana fishermen. Only 30 minutes from Lafitte and you can be wade fishing in big trout waters!!

Come let Bourgeois Fishing Charters open the....  Read More

I am planning to go to the Chandeleur Islands in a couple of weeks. My boat draws 6 feet of water. I am coming from Lafitte. Is Bayou la Loutre a good route around the MRGO closure for me or should I take a different route ?

Captain Paul - GPS Info in South Central Louisiana
Looking to purchase my first fish finder / GPS combo. Any opinions(just that) on which features work well(DI, SI, etc.,). Not looking for many bells and whistles, just the basics for now to find fish and marking waypoints. Unit will be mounted on a 16ft bass used for inshore sw and fw fishing. Any opinions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.

What GPS unit?
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ CBynum ~

I strongly suggest that you determine what maps the various units you are considering. Many individual go with a unit that has supplemental mapping that serves their needs. Check out the types of charts and mapping to see if they meet your requirements.

Most current units can deliver accuracy to within 9 meters when using the WAAS feature, so be sure that the unit you are considering has that capability.

Another feature is the weatherproofing of the unit. Standard is now an IPX 7 (water proof up to a submersion in 3 feet of water for one half hour.

In the weather we have in Louisiana it is almost a necessity.

The other consideration is the user friendly of the operating screens and if it can accept electronic downloads.

Generally the cost goes up considerably with the size of the screen and if it a touch screen.

Do your home work before making your purchase and you should many years of use out of the system.

The redfish are on in the marsh right now. Our Team of Captains have been catching nice stingers of redfish on ½ oz. gold spoons, spinner-baits with #4 gold blades, with black and chartreuse minnow trailer. It’s that time to look for birds, and large schools of bait !!!

First stop Tommy found one nice trout on a shrimp creole Matrix Shad. We had a few bumps but no takers, nothing on shrimp. Second stop we caught three fish on the double rigs quickly, then nothing.

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Hello all! I will be taking my wife and 4yo little girl down to Cocodrie for the Memorial Day weekend. I am not new to Louisiana marsh fishing, but I will be brand new to Cocodrie. I chose this destination over some of my normal 'redfish' spots because I would like to put my little girl on a decent spec bite. I have been studying maps and have a grasp on the area as a whole. We will be in a....  Read More

Kenny Weston and his buddy Gary came in from Texas to catch some trout. We woke up to some high winds so I pointed the Bluewave south with the intention to hide as best we could. The plan worked well as the guys started catching within minutes of stopping. The trout were mainly males 12-14 inches with a few 16 inch females mixed it. We moved around a bit catching at most locations which is....  Read More

Inshore Fishing in Delacroix Island in Southeast Louisiana
We launched quit a few boats today at Sweetwater Marina on Delacroix Island. We had some anglers scouting for the Redfish Tournament out of Hopedale or Shellbeach this weekend and they seemed to do pretty well. Trout were biting too with some folks doing really well. Overall most seemed to catch a decent amount of fish today, some caught more and some caught less, but that's fishing. If you....  Read More

The fishing was slow for us last weekend, so I decided to try soaking a cracked crab on light tackle. Listened to some Cajun music, drank a couple cold ones in the shade, and pulled up this big boy on a 6ft rod with 15lb test. After a fun fight, he was released to fight another day! Length was from my chest to ankles!

OK fellas, sold my boat and guess what, I'm boat shopping again...

I had a 19' flat bottom Carolina Skiff. Was a great boat, but was tired of getting beat up every time I had to cross a bay/lake. I liked that it floated in 6' of water though BC I fish Delacroix a lot and like to get skinny for the bass/reds.

I really love the way the hyper-lift Xpress boats are laid out.....  Read More
