Last week we caught some big spec's and bass and they had nothing in their stomach. They have been trying to survive the cold and when it starts to warm they are looking for a big meal. Until the shrimp and shad show up these big trout love to feed on big mullet. This is when I get out my bass stick baits and hold on for some great action. Love top water but for some reason the trout like a.... Read More
Big time Bass fishing looks like it is over. Just turned on the TV ESPN2 at 7am and the classic is on. This is a week late and tape at 7am. Watch how these top pro's use the foot control for fishing fast and keeping away from rocks. Not one uses a hand control yet I keep hear people say the hand control is better. Money talks.
Texas Roach alias Keith and I made a quick trip Monday afternoon. Perfect weather and best water conditions this year it was on. One men limit of bass and reds and 20 trout bigger than the reds. Always remember the guy on the radio no big trout in Lafitte ok. Needed a shallow draft boat as the fish were very shallow
I have posted many times give me good weather and you can catch fish with no problem. Left the dock at 2pm and caught these with the fishing king of Lafitte Keith alies Texas Roach. We could see the Lafiite road from where we were fishing.
My grand daughter is a sure shoot with her gun. She got this one the last day in the last hour. She also was a star winner in the fishing rodeo 2years ago. She put her time in the woods to get this big boy we are so proud of her.
If you want that record bass hook up the boat and head to Toledo Bend this week. My son lived on the lake when he coached football at Many HS. Believe me the first time it warms up like this week is going to drive the big gals crazy. Red Raddle traps will be sold by the ton at Toledo Tackle. I remember fishing the 1215 area and you could see baas jumping trying to throw the raddle trap with.... Read More
I have made several post about how good the fishing is in Florida when someone post other wise. I have caught more trout over 7 pounds in Florida then in Louisiana and I only fish there several weeks a year. This is after the gill nets as Florida has no gill nets and no inside shrimping. Just saw where the FLW had a Bass tour. near Disney and the top fisherman had 5 bass for almost 35pounds you.... Read More
Just checked out the two big money bass rodeos this week one in Florida and one in Texas. Can't believe the little money these guys make when they come in the money. Also I have posted many times how hard bass fishing is other than the spring spawn. The leader in Texas only able to catch one fish today and lost his top spot. The Florida top guy dropped from 35pounds first day to 15 today one.... Read More
For the past 7years think I have not missed one or more days of fishing. We have not been able to leave the house due to weather conditions and I have checked the fishing post on RR and here for record numbers. Rainbow trout have been stocked in the local BREC lakes as soon as the snow leaves I plan to give them a try.
With SC warnings again so no fishing so lets talk about this old problem grass. I have seen grass disappear from TB,False River etc and coastal lakes. Every time we loose the grass there was a warning that camp owners or boat lanes are having problems with matting grass. Next thing you know the grass is gone and no one seems to know what was the cause. We see things like crap or spraying and.... Read More
For the past 6months they have been striping the Lafitte Larose Hwy with truck load after truck load of mud and dirt being taken off. Der do you think they could take all the mud and rocks to the coast hear there is a problem. Are is it better to bring rocks from Denver. PS They also tore down the over pass by the old bridge just think how much rock there was there. Seems simple to me.
At the camp in Lafitte to make sure all was ok with the freeze. A few minor problems but every thing was ok. Put the Shearwater in for gas and a quick ride to make sure all was ok and maybe fish. Believe me I have never seen so much dirty water. Cold and with rain on the way did not want to make the run to the dead end canals in Texaco or South Little lake area. These canals would be your only.... Read More
With the way the river is coming up we should start to see all the attacks on the river water. Hope we get a another fall before the spring rise if not could have major problems with river water and fishing.
Love to fish with the best equipment but the cost has been killing me. Just purchased a pump for changing my oil and my Shearwater has pumps that work like light bulbs. This Talon install looks like my kind of job.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zM1B1s6VU4 At a cost of 100 dollars an hour this should save you some money. Wonder if it is this simple lol.
Been reading post for some time and it is so right that if you post something you can get people interest in your idea. We use to hear of the hot water canal,seabrook,yellow cotton bay and the sulfur mines not many now. Use to have a gal talk about fly fishing all the time and there was many fly fishing post not to many now. In a few months you will be see posting at the killing shed of spawning.... Read More
Took a short ride to the Bass Pro right by my home yesterday. Believe me been to many LSU games but this was bigger with the crowd. People were driving around looking for a parking place, No telling how much money they have in boats on display/ I would bet that this is the biggest Bass Pro in the USA. PS And this is only Dec.7.
