Freshwater Fishing in South Central Louisiana
Wasn't able to make it out to the South Farms for 'opening day' of their usually excellent crawfish season. Anybody make it? Has the recent spate of warm weather made up for the preceding weeks of cold?

I'll be out there in any case later in the week. I was just curious about what to expect.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Freshwater Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Got a question: Anyone on here have any experience foraging for chanterelle mushrooms? I've been told that there are quite a few in SE Louisiana, particularly around the rivers draining into Pontchartrain. (They're medium sized, run from yellow to orange, and have a faint fruity smell.

Freshwater Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
I'm on the hunt for a place near BR to catch a few catfish and potentially run some trotlines, and a neighbor of mine mentioned the intracoastal. Have any of y'all done any fishing in the stretch of the ICW around Port Allen. If so, did you do any good? Not looking for any tie-off points or anything. Just looking for a place close enough to home and work that I could slip off early in the....  Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
Hunted Big Branch this morning and got shut down. I shot three times and brought home one hen grey. Very few birds in the area. Talked to the game warden on the way out, and he said he hadn't checked anyone with more than two birds. Depressing.

The highlight of the hunt was hearing some guy scream 'shut up' from all the way across the marsh at an overzealous caller. He shut up. Ha.

I was hoping to hunt Big Branch this weekend but am worried the northerly winds we've had this week might have drained it. We've had light (~10 mph) north winds most of this week, and they are projected to blow into next week. What do you seasoned north shore hunters anticipate this weekend? Mudflats or navigable waterways?
Thanks in advance.
