Been horrible on Big Lake this week. Noone has been catching anything including couple my buddies that guide. I dont know what changed the lake.Cold front might have messed this up. Reports are millions of glass miniows on the lake so fish are not needing to eat lures.They are fat and full. O well looks like Ill go to Dulac this week. Road trip!
Made a trip yesterday afternoon with Ken looking for fish and getting some R&R from work. Found the water to be horrible in Turners but did find a couple of small sets of birds working in Turners and just south of Turners. Dink trout were under the birds and decided to move on and ended up in Joe’s Cove making some drifts and catching some trout and reds. The reds were all at 16 are just.... Read More
I've got a 2000 Yamaha 75 that runs perfectly until the water gets rough.....Then it starts bogging down considerably. Get back into the smooth, it runs great. Looked for loose grounds, connectors and etc. Nothing jumps out. Any ideas ?
Couldn’t think of a better way to spend my birthday then on the water with a couple of fishing buddy’s. Hit the lake this morning with Ray and Jchief and found the trout along with some reds and flounder just outside of Turners and found some more around the Pelican Point area also. There were several baits used today and it was the natural Vudu Shrimp, Vudu Gold, Bone Kick A Mullet, Chrome.... Read More
Made a quick trip with Ken this morning out to BL and found some trout on all the stops we made. We each started with a different color Vudu Shrimp and rigged different ways (with and without a cork) and found fish both ways. We moved to another spot and changed colors and found fish. Caught about 20 to 25 trout and all were tagged and released to fight another day. Don’t have an accurate count.... Read More
I'm home on leave and forgot to bring the directions to the simi-new kayak launch in Lk Charles. This story of this launch was featured in LA Sportsman mag maybe last yr. I think it's sponsored by the Lafayette Kayak Club. Can anybody help me out w/ this info?
Thanks for the help
Action packed video of Reds eating TOPWATER in the Marsh! Showcases Louisiana's Beautiful Coastal Marshes. Footage was compiled from a few Team Hookedonyak trips in October and December. Hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoy making them!
Decided to make a trip to Big Lake late this morning because I did’t feel like being in the house and it was a awesome looking day outside. Hit a couple of random spots in the middle of the lake and by basket reef to find the water was dirty, but the trout were hungry today and out of all the fish that were caught and released today there were none with any size to brag about. All the trout.... Read More
Made a trip out to the water today with my buddy Ken and we went looking for red fish and we found them. We fished from Moss Lake to Joe’s Cove. We fished some of the coves off of the ship channel and we also fished in Big Lake by Turners, Texaco cut and in the middle of the lake. The water in the lake is still dirty, but started to look better the further south we went and the temp was running.... Read More
Wanted to take a couple of minutes to talk about the Wedgetail mullet made by Egret baits. I have used the 3.5 inch and the 5 inch with great success. The 3.5 inch has a good tight rapid vibration from the tail on the retrieve and has equally good action on the fall. It has been producing good quality fish over the last couple of months. I have used a 1/4 and 1/8 oz jig head. I have had the best.... Read More

Anyone know how far the oil rigs are off of the Cameron Jetties and in which general direction are the reefs within big lake? Myself and a few fellow Soldiers from Fort Polk are headed down this weekend to do a little fishing. We normally fish the jetties or the holly beach area but are pretty unfamiliar with the big lake and any help will do, thanks!
Very few reports from the Southwest side of the state so we thought we should note that there are some nice fish being caught there. This big drum was found in a canal off of the Intracoastal west of Lake Charles... We also caught reds & trout in this one particular spot.
