Every year we open the shrimp season middle of May and I always hear this cry plenty of shrimp but small. This year why not wait a few weeks and let them grow. With this cold water sure the shrimp are very small.
Was able to upgrade a pulley on my Talon Thursday at Ben's shop did not take long and he was able to do it on the boat. If you have a Talon you may want to give him a call and get this up grade.

As a young guy we use to fish all over with a 12flat boat on top the car. The problem was parking your car without a major break in. This time of year I love to fish the hidden lakes around Ruddock but never feel safe when I am the only boat at the landing. The landing off hwy 90 have always had break in problems. Could the state put in surveillance cameras to catch these crooks. I have been.... Read More
Seems like every day there is a post about a fisherman having someone move in on him. I DVR the Bassmaster Classic and watched it last night. The guy leading the classic had to tell a boat not to get into his fishing area. Now this guy must have got up in the am and spend a ton on gas to watch and he is blocking the guy he wants to watch. When the pro ask him to move he gets smart and tells him.... Read More
With all the outboard motor gang going 4stroke why is Mercury still pushing the 2stroke. Seems like it is a good motor but why go against the flow. Keep hearing that in a few years there will be only 4 stroke. Mercury must know somehting.
Let's see another day of wind and cold so time to post. Shooting hogs from the air and raising the bass limits 3times ok. No grass in the worlds best fishing spot from KVD. Now the best one more reefs for us fisherman. Several years ago state spent about a million dollars putting a reef by Bason's in the Sulfur mines. Has anyone ever seen a post of fish being caught over this reef. The Sulfur.... Read More
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.
