Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
I am the first to throw darts at companies that don't perform. Garmin just sent me a note that I had to update my map on my GPS. I have windows 10 and for some reason the PC and GPS would not hook up. Called Garmin and in no time had my updates. No waiting on the phone or other BS. I register my products with my Garmin info and when I call they knows all they need to know this is great. ....  Read More

There is major flood control work being done NW side of little lake and what the locals call Temple. Be careful it iis well marked with buoys but plenty of place to get in trouble. Fishing was slow muddy water all over the place due to rain,high river and this work.

http://www.wwltv.com/videos/news/local/2015/06/22/15371877/ Sounds like they will open the spillway this week. Without MRGO lake may have a problem. If they open we will now see the results of the closing of the MRGO and to much fresh water. No more guessing if they open the spillway the results will speak for themself.

For the past few years fog has not been a problem for me. But this year the fog has been a major problem. Seems like the worse the fog the faster some want to drive their boats. With heavy fog I see no reason to go faster than just on plane. Several weeks ago was fishing and out of now where this guy pulls up to our boat. He was very upset and lost and wanted directions to home port. Told him....  Read More

Don't check the river as they may have to open the spillway. Remember when the crawfish use to walk over the roads well this year maybe again. Never saw the Mississippi this high at this time. Crawfish should be all over the area.

Good news the trout fishing has been great and shrimp have been all over the place. Bad news East winds have been blowing like crazy. I have been fishing for many years and this time of year we get strong North and NW winds then a few days of high pressure and no wind. Not this year where are these strong east winds coming from and what is the cause. One thing for sure the marsh will have plenty....  Read More

Remember when we were told that they were running out of oil and gas was going to 5 dollars a gallon are more. Just purchased gas for about 1/50 with my Sam's card in BR at Murphy oil on ONeil. They also had the ethanol free for 1/81. Then get home and see a news report that oil was heading down to 20 dollars a barrel. I know several people that paid a ton for a special car how do they feel....  Read More

We have been having some great high tides with clear water. Today with hard South winds finding clean water was impossible. This time of year a South wind brings in dirty water on the first day. Now we have a front on the way in am maybe will help. Not a good day for sure.

  • Oct pass lafitte
Been fishing bass for many years and have learned that Oct. is the best month for bass. You can forget all the punching and jig and pig. Pick up the top water and the swim bait and have a ball. Today left them on fire. PS Trout have stated to move in small for now.

Last week Bass had the AOY rodeo to see who would make the classic. Don't seem to have any interest from the local fisherman about this rodeo which is like the playoffs in sports. Can remember when a bass rodeo on False River was covered like the super bowl. Did any of the local guys make the classic.

Like most of us don't know if this idea that the Mississippi is the answer to coastal restoration. But this year I have never seen the marsh look so healthy. I see the marsh growing on every trip and islands that were washing a way now have started to grow. I see plants we call elephant ears growing where they never were before. Guy on the radio said Venice was also like this. So looks like the....  Read More

Tournaments Fishing in Lafitte in Southeast Louisiana
I sure don't want to upset anyone but I feel we need more guys like Capt. Theo. He does more to support Louisiana fishing than any other guide. He takes all the top fisherman on TV fishing like last week he had Bill Dance. These guys live with the top money tournament guys and they are sure to sing the praises of Louisiana. Ever hear the old one picture is worth a 1000 words well just think....  Read More
