Finally got on a few , between the cold fronts and work it's been difficult to catch it right . We ended up with 30 sacs and 10 bull bream and caught them on blue/black , brown/orange and a solid black hair jig , all 1/16 oz under a cork 15-16 inches deep , up next to trees and bulk heads .
Had a great day in the swamp yesterday ..... I've never seen anything like this but my son and my buddy and me went hunting and all three of us killed bucks that were chasing does .
I told my son to not shoot a doe so when he saw a doe he got out his phone and began filming it . Not long after that he heard grunts coming from behind her . He stopped filming and dropped an 8 pt in....
Well my son wanted to go back to Elmer's island and get on some more of those big reds for his 15th birthday , which was Sunday , so that's exactly what we did . We took along a couple of my nieces and my nephew and had a lil fish catching B-day party .
It was the same ole cut mullet , tight lined on bottom on the Elmer's island side of caminada pass .
My son Laitin and me met up with my buddy Slim and his son Austin at the Natalbany river for an afternoon garfishing trip . We put out about 30 jugs baited with some fresh mullet . With not much tide movement , the bite was very slow at first but around 10:30 all that changed . Bam ! Lol The garfish went crazy . The first one , 130 pounder !
We chased jugs for the next couple hours ,....
My nephew came up from destrehan for the weekend to do a lil fishing . We started out on the south shore of lake maurepas fri night garfishing . We ended up with 7 small garfish and 10 descent frogs .
We rested yesterday but got up early this morning and hit natalbany river for some sacalaits . Boy it got hot quick but we still managed to get 17 and a couple bream . It took us a lil while....
Tough day on the water today .. We fished the tickfaw , blood river area . My buddy Kent (aka slim) and son Austin fished with me and my son Laitin , we started out around 10:30 and didn't quit until around 5 .
We covered a lot of territory and hit some old honey holes that didn't really produce as well as they usually do . We mainly used the same ole brown and orange crawfish colored jig .....
Just my opinion here , but this should be the best weekend so far this year for those of you that like to fish sacalait . The weather should be dang near perfect and the water temps should be climbing back up for the slabs to start moving up in the shallows to start their spawn .
I use dark colored jigs mainly in the spring because most of the water I fish is still a lil dingy . Blue/black ,....
We went in Maurepas swamp and hit a few ridges and canal banks where there were briars and found a few rabbits . Looks like a lot made it through the storms pretty good . We did see a lot of coyote sign , guess they have to eat too .
We ended the day with 7 rabbits and a few catfish off the trot line . But it was a nice day and we had a great time .
For those of you that use the doe in heat doe pee .. Do y'all leave the dip sticks out over night , or do y'all pick them up after each hunt ? I've always picked them up but a buddy said to leave them out because it may make a buck hang around .
Is this true that the master of all sportsmen has left this site ?? What will we ever do ? Now all of our dumb reports will have the same ole 3 or 4 boring comments without him !
Na ... Maybe some of the people who were always afraid to post or comment because drew-b might belittle or insult them due to their inability to spell or anything else that drew-b could find wrong with their....
Put in at the public launch on tickfaw this morning . Went down to the mouth of the river looking for a few trout or croakers . Didnt get a bite .. Tryed shrimp on bottom , sparkle beetles , and chrome rattle traps .
Decided to ride to south pass to the mouth of lake P but the stiff east wind turned us around . On the way back we stopped by jones point throwing rattle trap . We caught a few....
I was wondering anyone's personal opinions on the survival rate of deer in Maurepas swamp and Joyce WMA . I'm sure it's wiped out the whole rabbit populations . Any high spot or log for these animals to cling to is probably full of fire ants and moccasins . There are deer that were living on the edge of the swamp and high land that makes it but I'm guessing that's a small percentage . I am....
