Hunted the incoming front this past Thursday morning. The rain pelted us as we set out the decoys. All we could do is turn our backs to the wind and wait it out. Shortly after the rain stopped, the wind came from the west. We heard it coming! What ensued was the best mallard hunt I've ever experienced in Louisiana. Everything in the air were mallards. You'd start working three and by the second.... Read More
Made a hunt with the crew from Moore Farms in Welsh, LA this morning. Skies were clear and the North wind was cold. Not a bunch of ducks but we made the best of the shot opportunities. Killed 10 teal, 2 spoonies, and the piste de la resistance, our guide called in 3 Speckled-bellies from about a half mile away. I heard him say 'kill 'em all' as he called the shot. We followed the order!
I have never heard shooting on the magnitude which I heard this past Saturday morning. Buy stock in ammunition companies because I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say about 3000 rounds were fired in our area. Ducks were EVERYWHERE! We got 11: 6 green wings, 1 pintail, 1 wigeon, 2 green heads, and a spoonie. We heard the first shot at 5:30am. That's 26 minutes before legal shooting time..... Read More
There were at least 3 bald eagles flying over the Bonne Carre spillway this afternoon near sunset. They had all the egrets and ibis stirred up and the ducks as well. There were at least 200 ducks either on the water or in the air. It's neat to see duck populations out there again.
For the second year in a row, Rick Moore has out-done himself. My son and I went Friday and once again, smoked 'em!! 12 teal in just 26 minutes. It would have been sooner but our shooting was a little rusty at first. Give him a try...you won't be disappointed.
Hunted the South Farm this morning. They have 7 holes open and there about 30 hunters for the lottery. We drew hole number 5 and set up 3 doz dekes and 2 mojos. What a disappointment! Headed to the Wax this Saturday for the opening of the second split. Cannot wait! I will post photos.
Found a great recipe for duck breast. I modified it by pan searing them in butter an olive oil instead of using a grille. When they were cooked medium, I also added two spoonfulls of plum jam and simmered it down to a syrup! Off the chain!
Showed up for the Tuesday lottery hunt this morning. 40 hunters vying for 4 blinds! We didn't get picked and what a blessing that was. We went to Section 120 Road and hunted in the timber. The birds worked so-so at first with none calling back. We had 2 MoJo ducks and a spread of about 4dz dekes but the kicker was when we hooked up a jerk-string. What a game changer! 3 of us took 3 Gadwalls, 3.... Read More
I was travelling to Grand Chenier this afternoon on LA 82 about 2:30pm. I passed Forked Island and before I got to Little Prairie, there are some flooded pastures just north of the highway and I saw some birds swarming. At first I thought they were blackbirds but a group of 4 flew towards me and that is when I realized it was teal. I do not exaggerate when I say there were a minimum of 250 birds.... Read More
Took a guided teal hunt with my son through Satch Moore in Welsh,LA at the Moore Farms. Hunted pit blinds in the rice fields and the action was outstanding. The setup is dry, and our guide, Len,(sic) did a great job of calling them in. They posted the hunts in this forum if you want to get a hold of them. The price was well worth it. Gonna book a duck hunt in November.
Is there a good rod repair shop in Baton Rouge that anyone could recommend? I broke a middle eye on a Castaway rod on a hookset. Don't try to recommed Superior Bait and Tackle since they have already ruined 8 of my Shimano reels.
The water is muddy in Bayou Melhomme all the way to Lake Palourde. The water clears up dramatically as you head east from Persimmon Pass. We fished Cheramie and found some duck seed in the back. Threw the scum frog and got blown up! Missed a bunch, caught a few choupique and had some gar attacks but definitely worth checking out as you can see by the one photo.
Followed up last Friday's fishing extravaganza with a trip on the following Tuesday, March 1st. Started out fishing for bass but after hooking a sac-a-lait on a crankbait, we switched to light line, corks and tube-jigs. We kept 34 sac-a-lait and caught at least 20 of those from one hole. Went back to bass fishing after 3pm and caught 6 keepers and kept 5. Our best 5 would have been 14+ pounds..... Read More
Fished the Stephensville, Grassy Lake, Belle River area yesterday. My son and I boated over 30 bass, missed a smooth 20, and kept 4. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, gold No. 11 Rapala, and Sweet Beavers took 'em all. I even broke off with Spiderwire on a hookset and my son pitched his bait in the same spot, hooked the fish, and I got may hook and bait back! Water is muddy in the main canals and.... Read More
Hunted 1/11/11 off of Section 120 Road with Anthony Battaglia, Larry Creasy and my son Christopher. Cloudy morning with a good wind but almost no other hunters. Saw a bunch of woodies but none gave us a shot. First bird to commit was a grey duck. About 15 seconds after splashing her, a green-head committed. Had no idea where he came from but we splashed him as well. A minute later and.... Read More
Showed up Tuesday morning for the lottery drawing to hunt ducks at the South Farm at Sherburne WMA. Well, they only drew for 4 blinds so we missed out. Spoke with the Wildlife and Fisheries office in Opelousas and the reports are not good. Must be the low water or lack of water in the fields because they drew so few blinds. We hunted the levees off of Section 120 road and saw lots of ducks. The.... Read More
