Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
Coming next Monday to fish Tues through Sat then going home Sunday. If you're in the area, come look me up. I'll be staying in Galliano but fishing out of Port Fourchon. Can't miss my Blue/Gray Tracker boat with handicap rails with TN registration ;)

Might get out on my buddy's 30ft bay boat to fish some rigs Fri/Sat if it ain't rough out there.

Gonna explore the area more..... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
This video is only about 3-4 final minutes of a 30+ min fight with a big stingray. Most of the fight was done by the guy on the video. I was fishing Port Fourchon near the jetties and I had the spare pole out with a live mullet on it. I was prepping another rod when suddenly the drag start screaming and I hooked up. I couldn't stop it until I really cranked down the drag but by then it had tore.... Read More

  • 6 trout 5 reds
  • better view of the reds on table
  • reds on half shell for grilling
Kenny Boy went back out today and once again tore them up at Lake Merchant. Didn't talk to him by phone today so don't have any details of his catches other than what he said in the email, which wasn't much. Pics speak for themselves I guess :)

5 reds and 6 trout

  • 2 nice reds in the boat
  • 36in bull red caught and released
  • Full table of fish to clean
Kenny Boy is one of the guys who helped tow me to the dock when my prop shaft broke. Posting this on his behalf since he has a company computer and can't post, but he can read posts. We've become good friends so not gonna review where exactly he caught them, just the lake.

Sunday 10-28-13 he goes out and catches his limit of trout and a few redfish. Sure wished I was fishing with him..... Read More

  • 1st of 2 Cobia's I caught
  • My very first bull redfish 18lbs caught on cut bait and small crab combo
  • Tag team caught redfish with skipper's wife Charlene. Look closely for 2 hooks in upper lip.
Finally at long last, I've managed to get an item on my wishlist before I die things done. Finally caught a bull redfish and the bonus was a couple of Cobia's, aka ling or lemon fish. Redfish was 18lbs, we didn't get a measurement but it was over 26 inches. The cobia's were 20 and 25lbs. My friend who has a camp in Port Fourchon took us (his relatives) one of whom was an 80 year old Korean.... Read More

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Well made my last fishing run of this year before heading home to Smyrna TN (just outside Nashville). Only caught 2 nice trout and a nice red and called it a day but holy smokes it was COLD. I almost needed a warmer jacket. Run off and forgot to load my tackle bags so I knew I was in trouble. Went to sister lake area that I've come to like in a little canal. Lost one of my cajun anchors (clevis.... Read More

  • Twisted Off Prop Shaft

Well I got a really early start but I mostly explored and decided to fish a spot I first found back in September. Very very slow but was catching trout although most were small. I kept losing bait initially and finally decided to go with my Gulp Alive shrimp in a copper color and I started getting good hits and catching mostly small trout. Had 3 keepers. But the day got worst. I was heading.... Read More

I want to thank EVERYBODY on advice etc. I went down on Tues 9/10.

Exploring the area mostly. Friday I slept in and browse Google Earth for areas to fish launching from Jugs Seafood down the road (almost the end.... Read More

Well ready or not here I come to explore new terrority while I wait on a friend to go to his camp at Port Fourchon. His boys have until now taken me on their boat but its always been hard on my knees/legs (I'm handicapped). I sure do miss living in Lafayette/Abbeville area and fishing out of Intercoastal City back in the early 80's.

This time I'm planning on exploring Cocodrie and.... Read More
