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 ,.... Read More
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.... Read More
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 ..... Read More
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 ,.... Read More
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.... Read More
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.... Read More
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.... Read More
My beagles have always been kept in a kennel . I like running a small pack because they're easier to get in and out of a boat , so I only have 4 dogs . Will it make a difference in how they run if they're kept in my back yard just running loose ? They've been in my back yard for a couple weeks now and from what I can tell they just lay around like they did in the kennel . I haven't ran them in a.... Read More
I have an old lightening flight PSE . I bought it used about 15 years ago and it was in great shape then , and still seems to be in descent shape . The last time I changed the string was about 4 years ago . The string still seems to be in good shape and I keep it waxed pretty good . At what point does the bow become to old to shoot ? Do the arms just all of a sudden break when it gets old ? It.... Read More
