Monday Trout report! Yesterday I had the seemingly rare opportunity to take my dad out fishing. You would think after all these years of him dragging me around the Delta chasing Tarpon that I could make time. Finally had a decent looking day to bring him and we made things happen. I made a decision to dip into a little spot and it paid off. I knew I only had about a 20 to 30 minute time frame to.... Read More

  • Slap full up on Sunday morning!
There is supposed to be three guys in this picture. The third wouldn't stop catching the Trout long enough to take the box shot! Another great day to be out on the water.

Thursday meat haul. Reds continue to cooperate with them hitting the deck on just about every cast down on the big muddy. Patiently waiting for the Trout bite to get back on track!

Another bucket of fish today down on the big muddy. The river just received a new shipment of logs today. Real logs this time. There has been debris the last couple of weeks but the last couple of days it has been getting better. Today coming in was the worst I have ever seen it. As compared to this morning I couldn't believe that it got that bad all of a sudden. Tossed Reds back all day and.... Read More

Took a little longer today with the low tide being first thing in the morning. Still hammered out the Reds and managed a few logs first thing. The pond I was catching them in is now choked with lillies. When the wind comes back around to the South the logs should pop back up as they do. Another great day in Venice! 504.329.0586

Went back to the "woodpile" this morning and before I made it there we ran into all these branches. Caught a couple logs but then the termites and bull reds took over. Awesome day down on the big muddy! 504.329.0586

Heard on the radio today that there are a lot of people complaining about all the logs in Lake Ponchartrain. Venice is full of them too. Here's the ones that we ran over. 504.329.0586

Terry, that ran the launch at Pier 90, passed away of a massive heart attack yesterday (at the launch). Those of you that knew him know he was a first class guy that would help anyone with anything! He was a good friend of many that launched there as well as myself. He will be dearly missed by many. God bless him!

Just looked at the wind current forecast loop for the next seven and a half days, it looks as though we all need to be hoping for a high pressure system. Not good!

  • Rocket Top....
  • Rocket on his creep...
  • close to 24" main beams...my biggest 8pt
This one is the one that I have been after all season. Even gave him the name "Rocket Top" because of his long and upward angled main beams. My trail cameras have taken about 40 something pics of him so far and had enabled me to figure out just about exactly where he was coming from. He would only come by this particular camera on a southeast wind. That's really what did him in because.... Read More

  • Caught him slippin' (stand upper left)
The first rut was pretty slow in area 6. The second rut has been great. Bucks chasing just about every sit. Different ones and some of the same doing their thing. I've been holding off waiting on one in particular to show himself to no avail. Took this nice 9 on Saturday during the rain and 30 mph winds. When it's on the conditions don't matter a bit. 180lbs taken with the 300 UM.

  • Sax!
  • knife for size reference...
Fished from about 11-1:30 today and picked up 30 slabs(gave six bigguns to the man that runs the launch). Targeted bigger fish today looking for those 3+lbs that are out there. Great quality fish but not exactly what I was looking for. Still in the Cataoutche area fishing some nests that traditionally hold bigger fish. Fun trip!

  • yummy yummy
  • meat haul...
Another pile! Only 72 more for the grease! Same area of Cataoutche fishing 12-16" deep. Black/Chartreuse. I read all these articles about how great you are Bryce, but all you come back with is half melted ice. What gives??? Would you like a little pity bag of meat?

  • Bring it on Bryce...
  • box shot
  • Got Speckled Perch?
Hey Bryce how have the Speckled Perch been treating you lately??? Fished in the Cataoutche area this weekend and managed to scrape up 133 of them (3 people). Black/Chartruese Yum Beavertails about 12" under a cork. Fishing on the DesAllemands side has been real slow.
