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.... Read More

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 .

We went down to Grand Isle to get in on the crab action Friday afternoon . Well , the crabs have left the beach ! We did catch a couple crabs , but not enough to mess with .

So , plan B , Caminada pass on Elmer's island side ... We almost didn't bring a fishing pole just because we were going crabbing only , but luckily we did !

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

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

  • Jigs
The day started out great with bright sunshine and calm winds . When I put the boat in the water , around noon , the sky clouded up and the wind started howling ! Not good ..



Not much clean water to be found either , everything is still pretty muddy .



I only caught 13 but was glad of that considering the poor fishing conditions . It's good to see fish made it through Isaac also .

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 .

End of story, now move on
Guys, this horse has been beaten to death, and then beaten again. So I'm locking the thread.



Move on, and let's talk some hunting and fishing!

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

Hunting in Louisiana
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

Freshwater Fishing in Louisiana
Just heard from a reliable source that freshwater fish were starting to pool up in the shallows , gasping for air , down the Amite river . Apparently these fish are about to die .



My question ... Is it against the law to scoop these fish up with a dip net ? They will only die and rot away ...

General in Louisiana
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

Archery in Louisiana
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
