My buddy David is getting married soon and recently took a charter trip out of Grand Isle and unfortunetly did not catch a single fish that day a couple of weeks ago. He asked me to take him and his buddy Javier down to the isle to do a little roadside fishing. I said sure, no problem.
We met up at my house around 3:00 a.m. and were.... Read More
Today I got the opportunity to fish with Ashton Meyers who is one of my followers from LAS and Facebook. Ashton has asked me to take him out on his boat and show him the ropes a few times but for one reason or another I never had the chance to. Well he asked me last night and I had no other plans so I said sure why not.
The fishing in Bayou Bienvenue had went from hot to inconsistent the.... Read More
I fished with my good friend Doctor Bob Weiss today in Bayou Bienvenue. We met up around 6:30 a.m. and launched his 24 ft. Bluewave with the intention of showing no mercy to the population of trout swimming around looking for their next meal.
As daybreak approached, we idled up to our super secret spot (the wall) and I dropped anchor in.... Read More
Awesome day on the water in Hopedale today! Had the pleasure of fishing with family friend Stephen McStravick while he was in town from Tennessee. In a couple weeks, Stephen is leaving to go to Washington D.C. for an internship with the Senator of Tennessee and I wanted him to leave Louisiana with fond memories so why not take him on an adventure with Phillip and I?
Today I had the pleasure of fishing with my good friend Doctor Bob Weiss who is also known as 'Doc'. Phillip and I met him at the launch at 6:00 a.m. and were greeted with a stiff SW wind which kinda had us worried because the lake was rough but we decided to give it a shot in Doc's 24 foot bluewave.
We arrived to our destination and surprisingly got.... Read More
Hello all of my fellow Louisiana Sportsman , hope all is well!
I have been on vacation from from since May 31st and have been fishing everyday. Last weekend a group of us stayed in fouchon and fished snapper everyday catching easy limits with cobia and triggerfish mixed in. I also fished the pier on Saturday night freelining live shrimp on the Grand Isle side of the pier. My buddy and I.... Read More
Yes I know we were crazy for fishing the lake yesterday. Out there it was exactly like you are imagining it would be. The winds were strong strong strong and the lake was ROUGH to say the least. With all of that said, the water was beautiful!
On my way to Slidell, I stopped to see my buddy Mr. Tony at BAIT INC. and picked up 75 live shrimp. After which I.... Read More
As most of you know, the MRGO rocks in Hopedale have been on fire. Had to go see for myself. I hadn't been to Hopedale since last fall so I was certainly looking forward to fishing out there. Phillip, Chase, and I arrived at BSM around 6:00 A.M. and were running down the spoil canal by 6:30.
We arrived in the MRGO and immediately fount gulls diving. After about a.... Read More
The stars must have lined up perfectly because The fishing in Grand Isle today was awesome. Arrived at coastal bait around 6:30, picked up some beautiful live shrimp and headed to the honey hole. Light winds had the gnats eating me up but it didn't matter to me. I was by myself and at peace. A new moon coming up,.... Read More
I got a lot to do so I am gonna make this report short. Fished hard today and fount fish at two spots between fouchon and grand isle. There was bait everywhere and the weather was gorgeous. The fish bit in spurts of 2-3 fish but I grinded it out and put together a solid box of fish using carolina rigged TKO's and cast netted some live shrimp which.... Read More
Left the boat at home and made the drive down to the banks of highway 1. I had some family in from Washington whose never experienced our great fishing down here so I was more than eager to show them how great it is down south. The weather was awesome today with light winds, dense fog and a rising tide all morning.
I have been busy with other things and that is the reason for my lack of reports. I can't remember the last time I went fishing before today.
I decided to leave the boat at home and head down to old faithful (Highway 1 in grand isle) I fished between fouchon and grand isle and fount the fish pretty easily. They wanted only two colors which were a champagne colored TKO shrimp and a chartreuse.... Read More
For some odd reason I haven't had the urge to go fishing the last couple weeks. I have been off 8 days n that time frame and have not fished on any of them. What is wrong with me? I think I am going insane.
I hope all of my fellow sportsman members had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a great New Year. I don't know about you guys, but it seems to me that 2012 went by very very quick. I can't wait to see what is in store for 2013!
I haven't been able to get on the water as much as I'd like because I have been so busy at work but when I got the phone call from Holy Mackerel last night.... Read More
As I closed my front door early this morning I kept asking myself if three layers of clothing was enough. It was real real cold this morning but no wind to speak of so I felt confident that 3 pairs of fleece sweatpants, 3 layers of socks, three sweatshits, a face mask, a beanie, 3 layers of socks, steeltoe boots, and some pretty pink gloves that I borrowed from my sister last night was enough to....

Another cold and windy and numbing day out of BAIT INC. off of Paris road in Chalmette. Not much changed from yesterday's weather to today. Only good thing was today we had some sun shining through on us!
Started off at the entrance of the hot water canal and put 12 in the boat before the bite dyed down. Then moved inside the hot water canal and started catching 16-20 inch tarpon but no meat.... Read More
