Ben and LJ joined us this weekend. LJ had applied to 5 wma youth hunts unsuccessfully so Ben had seen my posts and called me. After passing several deer sat. morning and seeing nothing sat. evening luck smiled on LJ sun. morning.
Any anglers out there have a little free time to help me navigate the marsh to the east of Leeville? One would assume the larger canals are the deepest but that definitely is not always the case. Also, are most bays safe to cross? I'm curious of water depths on an average day. Which canals are safe (3-5ft) and which are questionable(2-3ft).Thanks

Had the pleasure of taking Mickey, Gwen, Dustin and Stephanie from Baton Rouge out fishing yesterday. Had a great day. We caught 100 trout. Fish are biting on live shrimp, but just as well on plastic like the Shrimp Creole Matrix Shad.

Why are so many FFLs in Louisiana ignorant of the gun laws. Even a large chain like Academy doesn't know the laws. They wouldn't sell me a long gun because I have a Florida driver's license. The law has been changed for years and they are not aware of it yet. IGNORANT
The Speckled Trout fishing is wide open right now in Hopedale. The last several trips have been great with limits or near limits of trout and some nice reds too. Live bait still working but the plastic is just as good. Some days they are deep when it is cold but come up on the flats as soon as it warms up. Got you boat ready and waiting to go just dial the phone and come catch them. Capt.... Read More
The first split was up and down with some really good hunts and some slow ones but all good times. Love duck hunting you gotta go to know. We had lots of high tides scattering the birds but it looks like the low tides and mud flats are coming for the second split should be better hunting just gotta deal with the mud. If you want to get on duck hunt for the second split give me a call. CAPT.... Read More
I am in search of a good underwater fishing light to use off the side of my boat. I have read up on some of them and since they are kinda expensive I don't want to buy a piece of junk. What are some good brands out there on the market? I have the small 1 foot models but think I need more length like a 3 or 4 footer and a carrying case. Can any of you share some advice on these types of.... Read More
Have a question about deer antlers color. What decides the color of their horns? Some are dark choclate & some are almost white. Just throwing this out here for some feedback, one of my hunting buddies asked me this question & I told him it was what they eat & minerals. He said someone told him, horns that are white is due to the deer staying in the sun & not in dark areas.
Tom and Ramona Jeffrey's joined me in the Gator Tail today. We got a later start than usual, but it didn't matter. As soon as we pulled up, it was fish on everycast!! After boxing roughly 60 trout and a friendly crabber coming over our fish, the bite was non existent. Made a move catching a few more trout then switched gears to redfish. We boated 11 reds then called it a day. Good as it.... Read More
Sunday morning I took the old man fishing in Leeville. The water was very low (2 feet lower than normal), but the tide was rising all afternoon. Of course we headed west when everyone is catching limits of specks to the east. Our first stop was in the self named 'south east' canal. Water was dirty. Saw reds chasing baits at the mouth of cuts. Cocahoe's under a cork and carolina rigged did the.... Read More

I\'m livid with the ethics some hunters have ! We have been watching a few does since last year . And again this year with their fawns and yearlings this year . On a hunt this past weekend which was either sex . I notice a fawn that just lost it\'s spots just weeks ago and a yearling not big enough to survive on it\'s own without their mother. Just because it\'s a doe day.... Read More
