I bought a Hobie tandem kayak and had the pleasure of taking my son on our first trip two weekends ago out of Bobby Lynn's. For our first trip I think we did great! We caught over 150 fish and brought back 30 trout with 6 red's. My son is hooked! The mirro drive worked like a charm for us as we went out about 3 miles with no problems.
Spend all day Saturday and Sunday morning down in Fourchon and destroyed the reds. A buddy and I left out of the public launch in Fourchon Saturday morning right before the sun came up, made our way back into the marsh right as the tide was starting to bottom out. The fish turned on around 7:30 when the sun finally broke the morning clouds. we had our limit within two hours, caught a few more.... Read More
Late report from Saturday afternoon 11/30/13. With the warmer weather and the afternoon flooding tide, I decided to give it a shot. Launched around 1100 am. I should have waited a little later as the fish really did not start biting until after 1 pm. I found a canal which was holding about 8' of water and fished the banks and flats surrounding it. The fish were coming out of the deep canal.... Read More
Made a short trip this afternoon in Pensacola with my friend Brandon Barton who lives over there. The afternoon warmed up to 65 degrees by launch time at 3:00 P.M. Glass calm, but not much activity going on. We did see one red feeding, but a Pelican dove in and spoiled it before we could make a cast.
The dolphins were everywhere and really put on a show. It was one of those evenings that.... Read More
I made an impromptu late after trip this afternoon, despite the wind. Was able to get on the water at 2:45. I ended up with 18 specs and 2 16-1/2 inch reds, which are the best eating in my opinion. Fish were caught on live cast netted minnows and finger mullet and 3 inch purple/chartreuse shrimp gulp under a Bayou Bucks Pogeaux Popper cork. The trout were a bit smaller today, with lots of....

Took the day off and headed to Fourchon before the front passes through. Got on the water around 7:15 and caught the last of the falling tide with a 10mph north wind. The reds were active along the mangroves and shore lines, picked up my limit by about 9:45. Fished for another hour, but once the tide stopped, so did the fish. Picked up a 4 trout under a cork.
I turned 29 years old yesterday. Decided to celebrate the last year of my twenties by taking a half a day off of work to fish the flooding tide in Leeville. Launched around noon. Picked up a few here and there until I found a point at an intersection between two canals holding some nice fat trout. One trout was 18-1/4 inches, with plenty 15 and 16 inches, not monsters, but good solid fat.... Read More
I took the Native Slayer 12 out of Leeville this past Saturday. Wanted to try to beat the winds and catch the early morning bite. Launched at about 0620 with 7-10 mph winds; however, the winds started increasing at about 0645, reaching about 15-18 mph at around 0900. The bite completely shut down around 0930. Ended the day with 19 specs, 2 white trout, 1 red, 1 flounder and 1 gaff top. All.... Read More
The winds started to die down this past Saturday after the cold front hit on Thursday. I decided to take advantage of the favorable wind and falling tide. I was finished with my limit of specs and 2 nice reds by 10:00 A.M. Fish were all caught on cast netted pot belly minnows and finger mullet and 3 inch purple/chartreuse shrimp gulp. The bite started at about 6:10 A.M. and slowed.... Read More
I'm looking for a place where me and my cousin can throw in our kayaks and catch some fish prefer salt water but love fresh water too so up for any suggestions ! I'm in Gonzales the closer the better can any one help me out?
Took a trip out yesterday to see if the trout were still around after being gone at work for two weeks, guess what? Yep they are still out there. Plus I got on a school of Bass too. Only one small red fish. Had a great time. Check out my video. Also saw three deer crossing the bayou, at the end of video, hope you can see them, kind of far off from camera.
Headed down to PAC Saturday morning with friends. Reds were everywhere, my buddy found trout and my friend who lives out of state caught his biggest fish yet. Full report, pics & video: [url]http://bayouyakker.wordpress.com/2013/10/28/red-october/[/url]
