Kayak Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana

This was my first solo trip down to Grand Isle, LA. I missed my wife and kids, but it was peaceful. I fished hard for 4 days solo in my kayak and a 1/2 day with my good friend Captain Danny Wray. The water was high especially the first two days, making sight fishing more difficult, but I caught several fish that gave away their location. The rest were caught by working grassy points with....  Read More

Kayak Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Family of four (11 and 12 aged kids) just purchased yaks. I have fished b4 in Florida off a yak. Looking for some places to take kids to learn/practice fishing from yak where we may have some activity, fresh or salt. If ya want to throw in a spot or two for trout/reds for me to tryout it would be appreciated too. We live in Pearl River but am looking anywhere on Northshore. Thanks!

I recently moved to Lafayette and I am looking for some advice on areas to try for both fresh and saltwater. I've tried and had some success in Lake Martin catching some good sized bluegills. Any advice on other freshwater areas to try out. I live very near the Vermillion River and have been told about Charlo Lake on the southeast side of the airport.

Any advice on saltwater area close....  Read More

I'm looking to getting my first kayak but first I need the equipment to carry it on my car. I don't have a roof rack or crossbars. And I have a small car. Do I need a roof rack and crossbars to carry a kayak or just one or the other? I'll put a picture of the car I'm trying to equip.

Kayak Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
My wife and I bought a pair of Sun Dolohin Journey 12' Kayaks and are planning a fishing trip to Grand Isle this weekend (April 2-3). We are staying at the state park.

We've always fished for reds and trout off the side of the road and off the popular dock at Bridgeside but are wanting to step up our fishing game.

Where are some good places to put in that we can travel some....  Read More

For Sale is a decent Old Town 160T Loon 16' tandem kayak. Hunter green in color. Very stable two person kayak that was always rated as one of the best kayaks in the market. Old Town now only makes the Loon in 12'and it costs $1000. Will sell this one for $390. Paddles got stolen, so I priced it considering you would need to buy your own.

Looking for opinions of the following tandem kayaks; Ocean Kayak Malibu two xl, Vibe 12t skipjack, Perception Pescador 13t. I've researched all, but wanted some advise from the pros here. Main area of use will be out of Grand Isle, ponds, bayous, and coastal marshes. Is there a particular company I should avoid, or are they all quality products? Use will be taking kids fishing; educational....  Read More

I know this is the kayaking forum but I was hoping someone in here could enlighten me on pirogues. I am currently in school at ULM and want to get a pirogue to fish in the bayou with. Does anyone have any suggestions on who makes some pretty good pirogues for this?

I am having a little difficulty with my kayak. I have scupper plugs in my kayak, but the last 3 times I have taken my kayak out, water has gotten into the kayak seat area and it also soaks my shorts. I'm not sure why it started doing this, but I want to fix, so I need a little help.

I have fished freshwater for years from my kayak but have never taken it to saltwater. I fished south Louisiana a lot when I had a boat but that was 20 years ago. Most of the places I fished would be too far to paddle and involve crossing more open water than I would like. And from what I have been told post hurricanes I probably would recognize anything. I am looking at heading down there on....  Read More

Decided to fish in some deep holes in golden meadow ( did not expect this) and landed a few black tips. I caught three of them, so I was not sure if they were in a school? I also noticed my line going crazy and landed in the KC a 37.4' Red Fish. I recently purchased a 65 qt YETI to use on fishing trips. A major PRO to the KC is that the YETI fits perfect in the back of the kayak. Many Kayaks....  Read More
