Freshwater Fishing in Lake Pontchartrain / Northshore in Southeast Louisiana
I just went on the USGS site and saw that the pearl river water level is at 13.7 feet. Anybody think it will drop enough by Saturday to try and get a few crawfish or am I wasting my time and should look somewhere else?

Anyone else not enjoy the addition of the two new guys from N Louisiana on last weeks show? I like variety, but this is a stretch. Talking only bagging 13',14', or 15' gators. Cmon man. I wish hurricane Isaac hadn't of scratched trapper Joe from the show this year. Oh well, you can't stop mother nature.

  • Notice the crack
Hunted on a buddies lease sunday and smoked the birds. Had a problem though. On my third shot, nothing happened. Checked the gun and couldn't believe what I was seeing. The receiver cracked by the firing pin. Had to patiently wait for my buddy to shoot a limit before I got my turn. Frustrating watching ducks come in and your helpless. Pics attached. Can anyone recommend a good gunsmith.... Read More

Can someone get this damn water out of the marsh. It is getting ridiculous. Decoys were drifting, greys were landing in the thousands of small holes. I may need to sell my go devil. A 32 foot gravois with triple 250 outboards could get to where I hunt.

Hunted today with my buddy Johnny on his lease. The fog was thick. Birds didn't fly much this morning. We still got 10 birds and a few coot. We shot pretty good for a change. All greys and a single bluewing.

Had a good bag consisting of greys, teal, and one pintail. Heard someone in the distance doing mallard hen hail calls like he was hunting flooded timber or entering in a duck calling contest,lol. They will eventually learn.

Hunted solo today. Birds weren't flying much early. Once the wind picked up at 7 it was on. Had flocks of 15-25 greys cupping in the dekes. Didn't have time to reload before the next flock came in.

Has anyone had a falcon rod break that they sent back for a replacement? Mine broke right where an eye meets casting. Went on the website and its going to cost $40 to ship it threre and to pay for the shipping back. I only payed $90 for the rod. Almost not worth sending back.

I finally worked on my new duck blind for the second split. I'm halfway done and thought I would post a few pics of it. As Gary Zeringue would say, 'Can I get a deck check with them ducks!' With the help of a couple buddies, we were able to build quicker than I thought. This blind makes fast grass blinds look like red headed step children.

Went hunting friday in the Biloxi WMA. A buddy bailed on me at the last minute so I went solo. I was excited because I knew that front was coming that morning. Man did it turn the ducks on. Shot a limit of greys. Hunted the same spot Saturday and only shot 3 ducks. 1 mottle, 1 grey, and 1 bufflehead. What a difference a day makes. I guess the front pushed the ducks out as quick as they.... Read More

Waterfowl and Duck Hunting in Southeast Louisiana
I was searching around on the internet and came across a pretty good do-it-yourself boat blind. The guy goes into very good detail and his boat came out real good. I believe it only cost him $300 to build it. Here is the link...

Question for guys that hunt with go-devils. Do you turn the shaft inside the boat when you.... Read More

Decided to go try gigging tonight even with the wind blowing a little. I knew it would be a falling tide in the marsh. It was slow at first, but got a limit of nice flounder up to 3 lbs. Will post pics tomorrow

Went gigging Sunday night in tough conditions. I tried three spots and the water clarity was terrible. Almost gave up and try one last spot and that was the ticket!

Question, where is a place in the greater New Orleans area that sells beef melt?

How low does the water have to get in the Pearl before you can crawfish? 14 feet? Also what does the water temp have to be?
