Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
Photo Album
Since I heard that there were 200 boats in Lake Merchant on Saturday, I went south early Sunday morning to do a little trout scouting. The weather man had it wrong again. We were able to fish the south side of the islands on both sides of Wine Island pass for a short time until the wind kicked up. Then it was to the back side of the islands where we found clean water and less wind. We picked....  Read More

With the break in the winds on Sunday, we decided to head south and fish the southern lakes and bays. ended up with 35 nice fish in the 2-3 lb range and a couple of fish around 23' that we released. the fish are out there year round, you just need good weather.

Offshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
Photo Album
On Saturday, we went out of Grand Isle with Capt. Ryan Dicharry with Reel Addiction Charters aboard the 33 Freeman, Midnight Rider. We got out to a late start as many drinks were consumed Friday night.

We never really got on any YF tuna, but the AJs were thick. We ended up with 6 AJ and one decent BF tuna.

Well not really a holocaust but I have to compete with 'slam', 'murder' and 'smackdown'! It was a beautiful weekend. Fished all around Pelto mostly on oyster reefs. Caught them on topwaters and chicken on a chain jig heads. I'm not going to get more specific on my location, so don't ask!

shrimp caught in a cast net were everywhere.

Inshore Fishing in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
This is not a report to bash the weatherman/weather service/weather computer, but an honest discussion on why is he consistently wrong. For instance, he predicted 3-4 foot waves for the coast yesterday, but today his prediction is for 1-2s with 5-10 knot winds.

On what does he base these forecasts and why can't he get it right? Again, just trying to get a straightforward discussion on the....  Read More

Boats in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
I am planning on storing my boat in a facility with no power. I typically go down to my camp (boat access only) and return to the landing after fishing and running my trolling motor batteries down.

When I return to the shed, I want to recharge my TM batteries while the boat sits for a week or two. Will a solar panel provide enough power to recharge the TM batteries over the course of a week....  Read More

Anyone have any reports out of Pelto/sulfur mines? I know the weather has been choppy, but going to stick my nose out in it this weekend and give it a go.

Oil Spill in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana

At the bottom of the latest \'oil Spill Trajectory\' map, the following message appears:

\'The offshore forecast has been temporarily stopped due to small amounts of oil offshore, the absence of recent observations confirming significant amounts of oil in offshore areas, and the large separation between the loop current complex and the oil slick.....  Read More

Oil Spill in Cocodrie / DuLarge in South Central Louisiana
How often can we expect LDWF to post updates to the closure areas? Last one I see is June 9, 2 days ago. The reason I ask is that NO oil has been reported in Dulac/Cocodrie area and none is 'projected' to oil that area, yet fishing remains closed in Pelto. If this situation is true, why can't our government react in a real-time manner--i.e. get out of the way of unspoiled areas?

Deer Hunting in Outside Louisiana
I got invited to hunt with a client this afternoon in Woodville. Weather looks rainy and windy and possibly snowy. You think they'll be moving or should I stay in the office and work?
